    My boyfriend and I are just finishing sixth form this summer, we've been together for a year and a half and I have never been happier. He's always been there for me and I would really like to get him a gift since we will both be going to different universities after the summer and will most likely be living 3-5 hours away depending on the grades that we both get... I was thinking of getting him some kind of jewellery since he would be able to wear it and think of me while we're apart, but what kind of thing would guys want? Maybe a good quality rope bracelet? A necklace or a ring? Or no jewellery at all? Please help!

    Depends what your budget is but how about a watch?

    I’d say around the £30-£40 mark would be my maximum since I don’t have a job or anything. A watch is definitely a possibility but he has recently got a new one so I’m looking at other options too

    Best not to get a watch then if your budget is £40. How about a nice leather wallet

    You don't have to get him a gift though, how about taking him out to dinner somewhere nice? £40 would buy quite a nice meal.

    He’s into computing, electronics and games, all that kind of stuff. I would buy him some computer parts or accessories but he’s already pretty much kitted out his computer as much as possible, plus I doubt I’d be able to get him much in terms of technology with my budget...

    I would really like to get him something he can keep if possible. He got me a necklace for my birthday this year and I’ve always treasured it, so I’d like to give him something that he can treasure too. And unfortunately I’ve already given him a wallet in the past haha

    I saw this really sweet idea on a website recently - you basically get a jar and small pieces of paper. You write down things on the paper, like a memory with him e.g 'I loved going to this with you', things about him you love, stuff you want to do with him or maybe just cute love notes. Put the paper in the jar and decorate it if you want and give it to him, maybe tell him to read one each day. It's not jewellery but I thought it was a good idea for couples. Hope you find something!

    Have you got any photos of both of you together? Perhaps you could get a photo printed out and framed - he can put that on his desk at uni.

    A locket? Maybe a ring? (not a wedding one, maybe an engraved one with your own special message.)

    Great ideas! We have lots of photos together since I’m into photography, so I have a lot to work with.

    Yeah, I’m going to the local jewellery shops sometime next week to have a look around and will check if any do personal engravings since that would be a really nice touch.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys!

    a Swiss Army knife keychain? a Zippo engraved with a football team emblem or something? two shirts from Charles Tyrwhitt, TM Lewin or Hawes & Curtis?

    He’s not a football fan, but other than that I’ll definitely consider these
