Dear T2T: My boyfriend’s birthday is coming up and I want to make it really special. The problem is that I am broke. I am looking for some good (and free) ways to make his day incredible without robbing a bank. Help me out. — Poor Lover

Twice the advice!

Answer No. 1

Although it may not seem like there is much to do without having money, there are alternative ways to make his birthday special without being expensive. First off it’s the thought that counts, so the more thought you put into it the more special it will be. Believe it or not putting together something special with thought, will mean more to him than putting something together with money. I can’t tell you exactly what to do but I can help you brainstorm to come up with an idea. The first thing you should think about is something special between you and your boyfriend and add that into your idea. You could also do something that he always wanted to do, but you don’t like such as going to a Chinese Food restaurant if you hated that. It will make him smile because he will know that your idea is just to make him happy. Or maybe have a movie night. Treat him to his favorite movie, get some popcorn, and some candy. It’s a romantic, but simple way to celebrate his birthday.

Answer No. 2

You could make a nice meal for him, go on a picnic, eat a meal at home together, or have a movie night with him. You could even make him something special that is close to your heart. Just hang out with him!
