My boyfriend isn’t that much into Sinterklaas. Sinterklaas is a Dutch tradition which you can compare to Santa Claus. Santa Claus actually descends from him. You can read more information about Sinterklaas on Wikipedia.
I didn’t want to leave my boyfriend completely out of this tradition. That’s why I wrote him a poem, bought him a gift and wrapped it in a more crafty way than an average present 😀
