Help me make the most epic cookies ever for my boyfriend!

I've been dating this guy for about 2 months, and he is absolutely wonderful. I want to bake him cookies to show my appreciation for him a) in general, and b) for being especially wonderful during a current shitty time in my life due to family issues.

Normal cookies are not good enough. I want epic! Something like... sriracha oatmeal, or bacon dark chocolate, or something decorated as a retro video game. I'm up for making a couple different kinds, within reason. Say, 2-3 dozen or so cookies.
Restrictions: none. He eats everything, loves stuff like bacon, is pretty geeky, and well travelled (with a taste for odd foreign flavors). He doesn't like cake (what?!? nope. weird), and I don't think he's crazy about candy, but that's about it.
I'm willing to buy fancy and/or unique ingredients, but nothing outrageously expensive. I'm a slightly above average cook/baker, with a slightly under-equipped kitchen (no mixer, but an oven and bowls and cookies sheets, etc.). I'm in Montreal, and so have access to a reasonable variety of ethnic/specialty stores. I have around half a day (tomorrow!) to devote to the task.
So, any recipes, links, or ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!! :)
