Chocolate coins often delight little boys and they can delight bigger boys as well. Purchase a pound of foil-covered chocolate coins for a dramatic gift that can be romantic if it includes the right sentiment. Put them in a velvet bag and include a card inscribed with a message such as "Money can't buy your love, but I'd like to try," or "You're worth a million, baby!"
Homemade Chocolate Pie
If you want your guy to conjure up a domestic image of you puttering happily in the kitchen, bake him a chocolate meringue pie. If he's not a kitchen sophisticate, he'll be intrigued by the drama of the meringue and convinced that you went to an awful lot of trouble - all for him. For bonus points, make a flaky, buttery crust from scratch. When your masterpiece is finished, place it in a pie box and add a bright red bow for maximum effect. To up the romance factor, feed a piece to him bite by bite after he opens your surprise.
There's not much more romantic than being cuddled up with your sweetie on a cold night while sipping hot chocolate together. Purchase a handmade, rugged basket he'll be able to reuse later and fill it with a variety of flavors of premium hot chocolate. Open a bag of marshmallows and repackage some in a cellophane bag that's decorated with hearts. Place these in the basket along with the hot chocolate. Don't forget to include two mugs! After all, you'll want him to share.
