Although this may sound like the most feminine thing next to sitting down with your lady with a big bowel of chocolate ice cream to watch The Notebook, major brownie points are up for grabs. Think about it, you spend the day together creating her very own personalized teddy bear, you stuff him, dress him, give him a wee voice box, whatever you like. It’s going to be painful but just grin and bear it. She will love you for it.
3. Learn to Surf
There you go, something manlier. While she’s relaxing at home cuddling her new teddy, head down to the beach and try your hand at surfing. Experienced instructors and surfboards for hire through till the end of October. Take her with you, bring the teddy too if you like, just be careful if you put a voice box in it as getting him wet might shut him up permanently, wouldn’t that be a shame.
