1. Candy arrangement
If your boyfriend has a sweet tooth then this is the perfect gift. What you will need is a small bowl, a styrofoam ball that fits inside the bowl, glue, toothpicks, and an array of your boyfriend's favorite sweets. Glue the styrofoam ball into the bowl. Then, stick the candy onto the toothpicks and stick the other end of the toothpick into the styrofoam ball. Continue this step until the styrofoam is completely covered.
2. Jar of hearts
If your boyfriend is the sentimental type, give him this romantic gift. Take a jar and fill the bottom with confetti, glitter, or any type of filler. Then, buy or make a bunch of tiny envelopes. Fill each envelope with a love note and then put all of the notes into the jar. When you give it to your boyfriend tell him to open one each morning. He'll start each day with a reminder of your love.
If your boyfriend's a bookworm get him something to read. Buy him a book from his favorite author or a book you know he'll love. Don't know what kind of books he likes? Get him a bookstore gift card. It may sound kind of insensitive, but he'll be sure to love it. If you want to give him a more personal gift, make him a book mark. This way, every time he's reading he'll think of you. For the really daring, write him something. A poem, a love letter, maybe even a story.
4. The gamer
So your boyfriend's a gamer, try some of these gift ideas. Get him that video game he's been dying for. If he already has just about every game in existence, try a gift card to a video game store. You can also, get him a controller, you can never have too many of those.
5. Movie junky
If your boyfriend loves watching movies, get him movie tickets. You can get these at most movie theatres. Add a bag of popcorn, some candy, and stick it all in a popcorn container for a cute gift. You can also get him a movie theatre gift card. If you want to make it a little more personal, make him a movie.
6. Sports fanatic
If your boyfriend's a sports fan get him sports equipment. He doesn't play a sport? Get him tickets to a game. If you want to get more creative get a plain sweatshirt and decorate it with his number or the number of his favorite player.
7. Class clown
Does you boyfriend like to goof off or make jokes? Get him a joke book. Or try giving him a gag gift. You can also, get him a t shirt with a silly saying on it. If you want to be more creative, write him a joke book or decorate a t shirt with a funny saying.
8. The artist
If your boyfriend loves art, get him art supplies. If you're also an artist, draw him a picture or a poster.
As you can see I kind of ran out of ideas at the end, each one getting shorter and shorter.... Feel free to comment if you have any ideas you would like to add or if you are looking for ideas for a type of boy who isn't listed here. Also, feel free to comment on any of my other posts, telling me what you think, what kinds of posts you want to see more of, and any ideas you have for future posts. Hope this post helped make your holiday season a little less stressful :)
Stay Beautiful! ;D

You will need an empty jar with a screw top lid, a cosmetic product with a secure lid, gems or stones, glitter, hot glue gun with glue sticks, cotton rounds, and rubbing alcohol. The jar should be large enough for your cosmetic product to fit inside. Also, if you wish to paint your jar lid you will need paint and a paintbrush. Start out by cleaning your jar and removing an labels. If the bales leave any residue you can use the rubbing alcohol to clean it off. Just pour some of it onto a cotton round and rub off the residue. If you want to paint your lid then start out by painting a light coat on the top of the lid. Once you have painted the to, let it dry before painting the sides. Let the lid dry completely before moving on to the next step. If there is a sticker at the bottom of the cosmetic product be sure to remove it. Glue stones or gems to to the center of the lid, making sure you don't go to close to the edges. Then, glue the cosmetic poroduct to the stones. Fill the jar with water and add glitter. Then, screw the lid onto the jar. Make sure that the lid is secure so that no water leakes out. And you're done! After you give this gift to someone, if they want to use the product they can just unscrew the lid and pull off the product. The glue will stick to the stones and not the product so that it can be removed.
