Looking for gift both of you can enjoy together? “Tickets to a comedy show with a comedian like Kevin Hart,” Boston College senior Kevin Chapin recommended. Not only will the two of you laugh the night away, you won’t have to plan a big anniversary date. The gift is the date. You get double the fun with half the work. You”ll even continue your relationship with even more inside jokes to share.

Buying the perfect gift often sounds like a lot of pressure. But it's all in the way you approach it. Look at who you're buying for. What are they always talking about? What are their hobbies? Connecting your present to something you already know they like is the easiest way to get them something you know they'll enjoy. From clothes and accessories to booze and tech gear, here's what to get him.

1) Scrapbooks from Michaels. They have had coupons left & right for 50% off reg. priced items. I bought 6 scrapbooks from Michaels @ 3 for $10. They came with 10 pages, so 20 slots counting back and front for scrap pages. And another 2 leather scrapbooks @ $10 each (they were 50% off). The leather ones are really nice b-cuz they have the metal rings so that you can add more page protectors, if needed. And they are pretty large/wide. The 2 leather ones are for me 🙂 I am starting the scrapbook for my mom and sister and I will be adding few scrap pages and scrap tools (ink, letters, etc.) so that they can make some of their own. I think it’s a great gift. Kohls also has good deals on scrapbooks sometimes. You can at times find them for 50-60% off and you end up paying right about $10-$12 (this is if you’re looking for fancier scrapbooks and you’re willing to pay more than $10 for a gift). Try the Dollar Store (even Dollar & Up Stores), Big Lots or shop the clearance section for cheap supplies.
While cleaning might not top their list of fun, it must be done. This Bissell Featherweight stick vacuum makes doing it as easy and enjoyable as possible.

The cord is 15 feet, so you can cover a large area, and it works on most surfaces, including carpets, upholstery, and bare floors.

“Wedding registry–type things make sense,” adds Cassidy Olsen, another soon-to-be graduate of Tufts, “because a lot of us are moving into places for the first time permanently. I know nothing about glassware, so I couldn’t say what glassware, but a combo of drinking glasses and wine glasses would be good.” We here at the Strategist love the Bormioli Rocco Bodega short tumblers, which do double duty as wine glasses and drinkware.
