I want to do something nice for my boyfriend. Not because of V-day, but because he's been an absolute sweetheart for the last couple months.
My bf isn't terribly sensitive and he's sarcastic and not at all mushy or romantic, which is fine by me for the most part, but once in awhile this girl needs a little mushy. So I talked to him about it a few months ago, and he is really going out of his way trying to be sweet and nice, and planning little things to do together and saying "I love you" (which he says should be implied, but I tell him I need to here once in awhile)
I want to do something for him that says 'hey, I have noticed your efforts, and really really appreciate it and thank you!'
I have some money to spend, but I'd rather it be more about the gesture. It's hard to cook for him because I have a million roommates and so does he, so it's never 'just us' in the kitchen. The only thing he really likes is his computer game and the Redskins.
After three years together, my romantic instinct has been greatly dulled! I'd appreciate any ideas.
