Gift Ideas and  Suggestions for my Boyfriend

My story of how my search through dozens of gift ideas and suggestions for my boyfriend led me to the perfect present

It was getting close to Christmas time, and I was racking my brain going through tons of different gift ideas and suggestions for my boyfriend. He loves history, different cultures and their beautiful buildings – anyone who knew him knows that much. What would be an appropriate gift, I wondered? I searched through the different world heritage sites, knowing that he loves many of these protected manmade wonders.

 I then came across the World Heritage Project, a media-oriented organization that hopes to protect these gorgeous sites while at the same time letting anyone all over the globe enjoy a piece of them through brilliant photography by the world's greatest. After spending ages looking through different gift ideas and suggestions for my boyfriend, I knew I found just the thing.

The World Heritage Project catalogue included high quality posters, framed art, calendars, greeting cards, DVDs and world music. I decided to get him a calendar featuring some of the greatest wonders of the world, along with a CD that could bring the sounds of these far-flung locations home. The World Heritage Project donates a portion of the proceeds to UNESCO, which will help preserve and restore these all-too-precious heritage sites. Knowing that this aspect was unique among all the different gift ideas and suggestions for my boyfriend, I was sold. He would love that the gift I got for him helps protect the beautiful sites he cherishes.

It was Christmas, and he took out his music CD and calendar with a great big smile on his face. I knew I made the right decision, though it was by no means easy. There were endless gift ideas and suggestions for my boyfriend, but when it came down to it, it was this simple but powerful gesture - a gift to him that is in turn a gift to these heritage sites through the World Heritage Project’s conservation effort - that was right for him.
