Here are five lovely gift ideas to show how much you miss your botak boy as he serves the nation.
The enlistment day has finally come. In the past week you have gone out with your beloved boyfriend every single day from dawn till dusk, done all the army shopping at Beach Road, and even accompanied him to the barber as he got shaved bald…So now, what should you get as a final enlistment gift before bidding him farewell at Tekong?
Giving flowers is definitely a sweet gesture. However, it is unwise to make it known that he has a plus-one as his higher-ups are sure to pick on him more often.
Also, with 19 days in camp, these withering flowers become a painful reminder of how long he has been in army and how long more he has to endure.
Yes, we all know that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but you would not want your enlistment gift to disappear before his training even starts, no? Given the tough training, he will wolf down everything in an instant!
1. Pre-recorded MP3 with audio notes
Time for phone calls will be limited and you will hardly get to exchange meaningful conversations – perhaps only enough for a goodnight message. Hence, an inexpensive clip MP3 filled with your pre-recorded audio notes as well as your favourite couple songs would mean a lot to him.
2. Handmade cards
3. Polaroid photo
4. Couple journal
5. Army essentials
There you have it, our five enlistment gift ideas for your enlisting boyfriend. In all honesty though, your boyfriend would love just about anything his girlfriend gives him.
