Wrap the two items together, include a sweet note and tuck it away in his luggage for a nice surprise once he unpacks.If you prefer a sweet gesture instead of a material gift, I'd suggest waking up a bit early on the day you're heading out.

Dating anniversary gift ideas for him video

I headed to a used bookstore and bought about twenty classic novels I knew he didn't have. We've since combined our lives, including our libraries, so the books now serve as a lovely bookshelf reminder of our early days.

Books are among my favorite gifts to give loved ones.

If your weekend trip includes a lot of chill downtime, I'd suggest scooping up a book for him to read.

It could be something he's been meaning to pick up for himself or a new book you think he'll love.

I've mentioned this book before, but Bill Bryson's is a fantastic travel memoir.

A number of my peeps have received this as a gift and they've all loved it.

A book would make a lovely and thoughtful gift on its own, but you could also pair it with his favorite gourmet (or not so gourmet) snack.

We just received an email from a reader who needs our help pronto! My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year officially this weekend.

She and her beau are celebrating their one year anniversary this weekend and she'd like to give him a sweet little gift but isn't sure where to start. We're going away for the Labor Day holiday..I wanted to get him/do something special to commemorate the day (like a surprise).
