Gifts and holidays give you an opportunity to show how much you care for your boyfriend, without him feeling that things are getting too mushy. Consider his hobbies and interests when picking out a gift.

DVD Box Set
Television series like "Heroes," "Lost" or "Fringe" brought new excitement to television that guys can enjoy, with enough of a love story that girls can be interested as well. If your boyfriend has a favourite television show, get him the entire boxed set. It's a gift that works out for both of you. He gets to watch his favourite show and you get to cuddle up next to him for hours on end while watching it. These sets can cost upward of £26 per season, as of 2011.
A Loaded iPod
In the '80s, you would have given your boyfriend a mix tape on cassette to tell him how you felt. In the '90s, you would have burnt love songs onto a CD. Nowadays, you can get your teen boyfriend an MP3 player or iPod, and load up all the songs that tell him how you feel. Whenever he listens to his iPod, he will think of you.
Race a Stock Car
Blow his mind and give him an experience of a lifetime. If you live near a professional racetrack, you can pay around £130 or more (as of 2011) to get him a ride in a real live race car. A trained, professional will drive him around the track at 150 to 200mph, giving him an adrenalin rush he has never had before. Once he catches his breath after those exciting twists and turns, he will never stop thanking you for this thrilling birthday present.
For relationships that have spanned longer than a year or two, sentiment is more important than the amount you spend. Take your best pictures together and get copies made. Transpose your faces on the covers of his favourite movie posters. You can also go to a printing shop and line your pictures up in a perfectly bound book with poems that tell the story of your love. Make a collage of pictures and put them in a photo album. Wrap the gift with images from his favourite magazine (not an issue he's saved) or bake a cake or basket of candy treats to hide the booklet or photo album gift in.
