And if it’s too late this year to save for a trip, why not plan it for next Christmas? You can start saving from January and make changes to your budget that will help you pay for your dream trip.

Something from his childhood

What did your other half enjoy as a child? From Star Wars to Lego, there are all kinds of gift ideas you can use to help them relive some of their favorite childhood memories. Take a look at games, memorabilia stores and even vintage clothing sellers to see if you can find something great. With a new Star Wars film coming out, as well as a big emphasis on all things retro, you’ll have plenty of choice to find something fun for your big kid!

Don’t forget, you can also go down the sentimental route and choose a gift that shows real memories from his life or your lives together. A photobook or video is a wonderful way to show you care, and something they can cherish forever.
