My husband is somewhat artsy (he does some oil painting and self tailors his shirts), but probably more geeky (star trek, tron, boardgames), so maybe there are some overlap? Here are some of the gifts I’ve gotten for him that he likes.
- Zara jacket.
- A trip to a mug painting place where we both paint our own mugs.
- A private lesson with a dance instructor for swing dancing. He’s always wanted to improve.
- Obey cardigan
- Boardgame. This is a good resource for indie boardgames, click here.
Graphics course is the first thing i thought of!
not the wall painting things(that would be graffiti),but the ones you make on metal, paper and so on. A technique of carving and panting materials.
The thing is that photos make awesome bases for these…just awesome.
Try a local art centre or some such and ask if they do courses for it.

I purchase my boyfriends birthday gifts from here and he LOVED them!posted about 3 years ago
I always try to buy something that the person I am giving the gift to wouldn’t buy for themselves. Has he hinted at or mentioned anything he wants (but it’s too expensive, indulgent, etc.)? If you still can’t think of anything, take him out for a nice dinner and his favorite dessert.posted about 3 years ago
He hasn’t really hinted at anything. I’m sure he wants something nice, I’m just not sure what exactly. I’ll probably be taking him out to dinner on his birthday, and then see what else I can plan with him. A really good weekend would be a good birthday gift right? Haha.
Thanks for all the tips guys! I just came back from window shopping downtown, so I’ll keep a lookout for all the things you’ve mentioned.posted about 3 years ago
he sounds like that quirky kinda guy, but in a nice way haha. maybe something you guys can do together. there is a cardboard deerhead on urbanoutfitters.comt that you have to assemble; it’s quirky, artsy, and a fun project :) also, plenty of clothes online tooposted about 3 years ago
I think something interactive like making t-shirts together or one of those art kits could be fun. Another idea would be a canvas painting of an image he likes or that is meaningful to him.posted about 3 years ago
