Gift Ideas for Your Boyfriend
1. Polaroid 600 Camera + Film Set ($122): Gift your man this camera so you can become his muse. Shake it off for the camera, then all he’s gotta do to develop physical copies of those snaps is shake it like a Polaroid picture… because it *is* a Polaroid picture.
2. Sonos PLAY:5 ($499): Give the gift of neverending music at home with this WiFi streaming device, all controlled by a remote app on his phone. He’ll love it so much, and you for getting it for him, that he may just let you control the tunes every so often.
