Handmade Tool Box - You may have heard of people who had a Tool Box made for him by their brother over 30 years ago and it is still in use today. If you can make it yourself with aluminum then this will be truly unique, but if you are not gifted in creativity then you can buy handmade Tool Boxes.

A customized CD- Create a CD or mp3 playlist that chronicles the couple's time together. You can include songs from the year they were married and any other big milestone years for them. You can create a customized CD cover on your computer with their picture, and then list the songs and the year they hit #1 on the back of the CD cover.

One of the best gifts for long-term relationship is a collection of the photos of the time you have spent together. You can collect your best photos and place it in one album. Make funny and sweet captions or descriptions of each photo. Gather your creativity and design each page of the album in a unique way.
Make a dinner-for-two romantic gift basket and surprise your loved one with this very personal gesture. For instance, you would want to buy a bottle of red wine, some red candles, red ribbons and fancy-looking red items to be placed in your basket, if it is for a Valentine's candlelight dinner.

Coupon Book- A fun homemade gift idea for your boyfriend would be a coupon book. All you have to do is make a list off all the things you know he enjoys such as a back rub, or a night out with the guys and type them up on your computer. You can get really creative with them and make them look like a coupon you would cut out of the newspaper.
