A cute way to make your boyfriend feel special on his birthday is by creating a chalkboard mug for him. All you need is a coffee mug, sandpaper and painter's tape to get it done. Once ready, you can write a loving birthday message on it.
Another fun gift to create for your boyfriend would be a handmade stencil pillow. You can use a scale with letters from the alphabet to stencil meaningful words on it. If you want to go simple with the gift then create a pencil holder by drilling holes in a block of wood. It would make a great addition to his office. And if you want to help him stay organized at work, then you can create office trays by turning boxes into labelled trays with your choice of decorative paper. If your man loves traveling, it would be a good idea to stitch a travel kit for him without too many pockets. Just two sides with a torch pocket would make a cute birthday gift. You can also easily create a braided key chain for him with a cord. It would be a gift that would come handy and make him remember you often.
