What do I get my new boyfriend for his birthday?

Asked by romantical98 (12 points ) July 14th, 2009

We’ve only been together two months. I don’t want to go overboard with something too lovey-dovey or personal. Suggestions? He’ll be 30 years old, from NYC, very into fashion and the latest whatever….

Make him dinner and give him a good book or movie. Romantic. Not over the top.

A Steak and a blow job.

Ok, for all the responses related to sex…he gets everything he wants whenever he wants… birthday makes no difference.

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 The Steak and BJ holiday is my anniversary, perfect huh? :D

If you want to give him a book, you run into the problem of personalization. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is good for the humor factor. Otherwise something either popular or related to something you’ve talked about or a movie you’ve seen or on a topic you know he’d like is usually good.

I would suggest, with absolute sincerity, a remote control car (or helicoptor, tank, dinosaur etc). I have asked quite a few people of varying sex, gender and personality whether they would appreciate a remote control car for their birthday and the general concensus is yes. It’s something that’s simple and fun.
If you’re searching for a book (as you mentioned) might I suggest “A Confederacy of Dunces”. It’s a reasonably famous book that’s full of wit, charm and a bizarrely lovable character. I myself have recently finished reading it and found it incredibly addictive.

OMG. A remote controlled helicopter! There is no one who would not enjoy that and you can get one small enough to play with INSIDE.

edited to add: and if you would not enjoy that, I choose to believe you do not exist. So there.

@EmpressPixie My boyfriend wants one of those so bad. Or one of these from ThinkGeek (that site is awesome for guys stuff) And yes that is a Flying Fuck :].

a fake positive pregnancy test

I think we’re on to something here… that might be the perfect gift. it shows I’m thinking of his b’day but not getting serious about it. Flying Fuck may be the way to go.

Is there any problem that remote control toys can’t resolve?

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

@chelseababyy that’s amazing. my buddy’s birthday is then also… lucky bastard.

chelseababyy's avatar

@eponymoushipster don’t people do that on a daily basis?!

No way, that is the way to go. If it is in your budget. Your man will love you for ever!

I fly R/C Helicopters. They are a blast, but there is a bit of a learning curve. Be prepared to buy blades and tail booms. Till you get the hang of it.

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 Yeah, I didn’t even know about that whole “steak and a bj” thing ‘til this past March when I found out via Fluther. Makes me lol.

I got this filled with brownies one year. I was pretty thrilled with.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@chelseababyy if you do, i’m coming to visit.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 why fight? just form a line.

Nially_Bob's avatar

@eponymoushipster @ABoyNamedBoobs03 Ahem, are we forgetting who made the initial suggestion? I demand to be granted the first go…..pretty please

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

alright, it’s getting borderline internet creepy now guys, should probably tone it down

Nially_Bob's avatar

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 ‘straightens imaginary tie’ So how about those knicks?

chelseababyy's avatar

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 Meh. I don’t get creeped easily. Especially considering I talk to @eponymoushipster on a daily basis.

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

doesn’t look like they’ll be getting Lebron with the new cap in ‘10 ;).
@chelseababyy oh I meant me lol. “sword fights” aren’t my thing.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@chelseababyy i sure hope you’re joking…

chelseababyy's avatar

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 Oh, don’t deny it..
@eponymoushipster What if I’m not ^_^

eponymoushipster's avatar

@chelseababyy well then you’re mean

chelseababyy's avatar

@eponymoushipster If you were really creepy do you think I would talk to you pretty much every day? UHHHHHHHHNO.

ABoyNamedBoobs03's avatar

eponymoushipster's avatar

@ABoyNamedBoobs03 it’s the stare of justice.

@chelseababyy good point.

romantical98's avatar

wow, way to get off topic. thanks to the few who actually considered my question and answered thoughtfully.

chelseababyy's avatar

@romantical98 Everyone goes off topic in almost every thread. It’s bound to happen.

If he is into fashion, get him a nice Cartier watch. Everytime he looks at what time of day it is, you will come to mind.
