Cook for him or make him a gift that he can use....can you sew? Make him a scarf, or buy him a mug (if he drinks coffee) with your picture on it, put a funny phrase on it "Hey sexy, how about a nice cup of <insert your name here>.

How much are you trying to spend? Or, how much of an impact are you trying to make?

It seems like you all are still in the newer phases. I would get him something functional, something that he has stated he needs or something that you've seen he needs. I feel as though that is meaningful and doesn't NEED to cost a lot, but there's room to make it more upscale if you want to.

Do you know his love language? It's one school of thought on how people give and receive love/affection. I tend not to really buy into a lot of this kind of stuff BUT it is super helpful when thinking through how best show affection. Ie one of my friends love language is gifts, and she loves coffee. If I show up with her favorite latte her day is just about made, lol.

Are you crafty at all?

Make him a blanket. They sell those tag blanket kits at the craft store. All you do is cut and tie the edges together. Easy peasy!

Excellent ideas ladies!!! I dooooo love the idea of a staycation.... He just gave me my gift since he leaves town Sunday (I have one more night to find something!!!!) he got me a beautiful necklace and marching earring set from zales. Now I'm really feeling the pressure because as Miss B said, we are still in the newer phase...

Does he read?
Maybe a nice Book by Malcom Gladwell - David and Goliath
I purchased this book myself, I haven't started reading it yet...I dunno.. maybe thats not enough..

hmm

If he's into Electronics maybe a DVD box set of something ??
Documentary series ... a comedy series like Martin/ chappelle show? 

So for my dads birthday I got him all this Tea Tree oil stuff from
bath and body.. I think it was bath and body... one of those spots.
and Sally's beauty has organic Tea Tree oil shampoo & conditioner.. 
My barber is big on using Tea Tree oil to clear up dark spots left from ingrowns so he put
me on to a lot of that stuff.

Tickets to see Lebron?? maybe thats too much this early on... tickets to see OJ Mayo? 

hmmm

OH... a full body massage session at a legitimate certified massage spot?.. one of my girls took me to this thai spot... I got one of those deep tissue massages ... This old 4 foot asian lady had me super sore ... but after I was healed i felt great.!

He set the tone with jewelry. Does he wear watches? Maybe you can find him a really nice watch.

I'm in the newer phases with my bew and I got him a fancy travel set (from OFF 5th, lol) with inflatable pillow and eye cover thingy and some other stuff since he travels a lot.

When I told my sister she was like Geek

I mean its in a really nice case! LOL

So OP I totally understand your scenario. And I am back to the drawing board also.

Dizamm at Zales. He isn't playin. He set the bar high, early. (Which website was this? LOL)
At this point I wouldn't try to meet it financially, but in thought. Show that you're paying attention. If he's a foodie (and if you can cook!!!) you can make him a REALLY nice meal. Pair with a nice wine. Men like food, lol.
IA with a boxed DVD set of one of his favorite shows as a child/teenager. Like Fresh Prince or Martin, or something even more random. See if you can find out what his favorite gaming console and game was as a teen/child. Pop up with a Sega Genesis or something and you might have dude hooked for life, lol
