Picking out a sentimental homemade one-year anniversary gift for a boyfriend can seem difficult, especially after everything the two of you have been though. Your gift should show that you absolutely love your guy. Just use whatever talents you have to make a creative, sentimental gift that your boyfriend can appreciate.

Scrapbooks and Gift Baskets

Some sentimental and creative gifts use trinkets you have gathered from dates. For instance, scour your closets and drawers for concert ticket stubs, movie ticket stubs and sentimental photos. Put them on display in a way that pays homage to your relationship. A leather-bound scrapbook filled with sentimental items memorialises the important moments you have had together. Each page can be decorated. Alternatively put the items in a gift basket with a thoughtful love note.

Hardcover Photo Books

Upload some of your top-quality photos to a photo retailer's website, such as Shutterfly and Snapfish (see Resources). The photos should be of decent quality because they are going to be memorialised in a hardcover photo book. Use photo-editing software to get rid of red eyes before uploading the images. Each page can hold about four photos. Include some silly photos, some artistic and some from the most important moments on your dates. Label the book "Part I" to allude that more wonderful times are to come.

Canvas Art

Take an image that is meaningful to your boyfriend, such as a vintage postcard or a page out of an antique collectable book. Upload the image to a photo retailer's website to have a large piece of canvas art made for your boyfriend. The canvas art should be made from an image that complements your guy's apartment and should go with his style. Alternatively, make the canvas art at home with some iron-on transfer paper and linen artist's canvas.

Original Song And Art

Use your talents to make a memorable gift. For instance, write your guy a song and perform it for him if you are a skilled lyricist. Write a poem or a short story if you are talented with words. Alternatively, paint your guy an image of a sentimental place, such as his childhood home or the first place that you kissed. This gift shows that you are willing to put forth some extra effort for your guy.
