If your guy likes baseball, then a great way to show him how much you care is by turned one of your shared living spaces into a baseball-themed room (or transform his dorm room!)

Start by hanging up a few vintage baseball posters or photographs. See this Senior Night idea at BlackAndWhiteBonanza on Etsy.
