  • How about a nice snack, or a picture of you and him with a short message written on it with a favorite memory you have together.

  • That's such a cute idea. It would be really cool to wrap a box in a box in a box, etc.. and have him open one every hour!! LOL!

  • I once did a stocking for the drive when my SO had to pick up his son almost 2 1/2 hours away. He took our dd too so I made a stocking for each of them to open on the drive that way they wouldn't be too bored. It turned out to be a real hit.

  • That's a sweet idea! I may take that idea and get something for my hubby since he has to work Christmas night.

  • Do you have any traditions? Like drinking cocoa together or something? You should do something personal. That would make him feel like he is with you, but not...I think it is super sweet that you are even thinking of doing something special for him. :)

  • You could make him a booklet of IOU's.... Like IOU one backrub when you get off work; In January IOU one date, In February IOU one movie pass night with me...In March IOU one homemade dinner of a few of your favorite things...April IOU a night away at a Hideaway...May..IOU Sleep in with breakfast in bed... June...a drive anywhere you wana go... You get the idea... This way, he knows at least one day out of the month he has you all to himself, which will let him know just how important he is to you and something to look forward to.... Enjoy.... Merry Christmas
