Annunciation Gifts Are Unique Gifts For Boyfriend!

Perhaps one of the most renowned beliefs in Christian and Eastern Orthodox faiths is the divine Annunciation, which refers to the delivery of the message to the Virgin Mary by the angel Gabriel of her destiny to become mother to Jesus Christ. Also dubbed the Feast of Annunciation in some religious circles, the event is commemorated annually by devout partisans the world over on or around March 25th, which puts it at nine months before the Catholic Christmas celebration of the birth of Jesus.

If your spiritual sweetie appreciates the works of this famed artisan, then perhaps he will enjoy receiving one of these gifts for boyfriend that is twofold: a t-shirt (now what guy wouldn’t like that?!) depicting his renowned work, Annunciation.


Along similar lines, also available is a hooded sweatshirt of Annunciation by Italian Renaissance painter Fra Angelico.

Definitely falling under the category of “truly unique gifts for boyfriend” is a traveling speaker. This is just what the name implies: an electro-acoustic device.

Powered by either USB cable or two AAA batteries, it’s small enough to be portable yet offers big sound, so he can take his music (and his favorite painting!) with him wherever he goes.
