I've been dating a guy for 4 months... absolutely crazy about him. His birthday is coming up and I'd like to get him something wonderful- just not sure what to get for a guy turning 27. Any suggestions?

It depends on what he's interested in. Guys arent like girls where you can get generic things that almost all girls will like (flowers, chocolates, jewelery, etc.). Maybe get him something that you know he wants, but would never spend the money on that. Or maybe a trip together would be good.

Thanks for the help, moutallica. You're right, a problem for me is that it's hard to do anything generic for a guy. I definitely would like to get him something that he really wants, but wouldn't get for himself. Just trying to think of what. I'm going to be out of the country for his birthday, so we can't go on a trip together... but maybe once I get back.

it may sound corny but what about a treasure hunt, ie send him a letter if your postal service is good, knowing that it will arrive on the morning of his birthday, with a little clue in it, ie maybe with a clue leading to the place you first met or your favourite place to go locally, there maybe have a picture of a place you would like to go for a weekend with a clue to another place, in the third place have a travel voucher or a brochure for where you could end up.......... that way even though you won't be with him on the day he'll still be thinking about you........
