Personalized Calendar

Your boyfriend thinks you're beautiful. He will happily look at a photo of you again and again and smile each time, so a personalized photo makes a great gift.

If you are looking for a creative boyfriend gift for Christmas , why not choose 12 of your favourite photos together, or take a set of 12 artistic photos of yourself, and make your boyfriend a personalised calender.

One year, a girl friend and I got together to take pool-side photos in our bikinis to give to our respective boyfriends. We had a real giggle posing for our shots, and the boys loved the results!

Download my FREE photo calendar template to create a personalised calendar using microsoft word. All you need to do is pick 12 great photos, download the template, and follow my easy step-by-step video tutorial. Make sure you add in all your important dates (anniversaries, birthdays) and you could even sprinkle through nice messages.

The look on his face when he opens his present and sees the effort you have gone to will be well worth it!

Framed Photo

Pick a nice photo of yourself, or of the two of you together and frame it.

Or, make a photo-key-ring that he can proudly carry with him and show off to his mates. You can pick up a photo-key-ring kit from a craft store for a few dollars.


Put together an album with photos of the fun times you've had together. Sprinkle through mementos like entry tickets to movies and concerts, or bus/plane tickets from holidays you've had together.

Don't forget to label your photos. Stuck for words? There are also some cute boyfriend quotes here that you could add to your album too. But don't limit yourself to scrapbooking...

Your Own Music Video

There are some great programs out there, like the free-to-use Animoto , that help you to make music video clips from your photos. Choose some favourite photos of you and your boyfriend, pick a song you both love, press a button and... hey presto, funky video!

Baked With Love

The best way to your boyfriend's heart is...

Through his guessed it! So think about his favourite foods, and have a go at baking something special just for him.

Why not treat your boyfriend to a homemade gift basket filled with a selection of his favourite foods?

Or you could plan a special outing (like a picnic, or a day at the zoo) and bring along a basket of home-baked treats to share.
