♥︎ here me out, Gareth usually did very little for his birthday, his mom and little sister would always do a little something for him but would still let him have his wish and give him his space, normally it would just be a small cake and some presents, nothing big, spending most of his birthday happily alone in his room.
♥︎ all that changing when you started dating and spending his first birthday together as a couple.
♥︎ something to me just screams that he is a cancer, and his birthday would be in July so it would be summer break so then you have a whole free day to do whatever you like.
♥︎ let’s say this is his 16th or 17th birthday as well.
♥︎getting to his house early in the morning and cooking him his favorite breakfast.
♥︎to me he gives off pancakes and strawberries kind of guy, with a side of bacon.
♥︎ definitely dips his bacon in the pancake syrup (if you haven’t tried it, try before you deny, it’s so good!!)
♥︎ you definitely invited the band/hellfire over to his house to practice and play D&D in his garage while you get dinner ready and his cake.
♥︎ his mom helps you with his cake and food
♥︎ his favorite food in my opinion is French fries so you would make a few different kinds with different seasonings and spices on them
♥︎his cake is all chocolate with strawberries on top (sorry but I can just imagine this man loving strawberries)
♥︎ his mom setting the food up in the living room on the coffee table, just for the two of you while her and his little sister eat in the dining room.
♥︎ after everyone leaves and he comes back in, a few presents and cards in hand from them, his eye widen and he is in shock with all of it.
♥︎ you guys sit together and eat, a rented VHS from family video playing on the tv in front of you both.
♥︎ singing happy to him (which he still didn’t really like but did it cause it made you happy)
♥︎ opening and giving him his presents after that
♥︎ got him all sorts of gifts from Cassette tapes, jewelry (mainly rings), some band tees, new sets of dice for when they play dungeons and dragons, and even a Nintendo!
♥︎I can imagine you giving him his skull necklace that he wears and that’s why he wears it so much, because it came from you.
♥︎ him complaining that you spent too much on him
♥︎ then slightly tearing up because he doesn’t know how he got so lucky to have you
♥︎ overall it was the best birthday he has ever had and it’s all because of you <3
