For our first anniversary (which is traditionally the paper anniversary), I took sand from Lake Michigan (where my husband was born) and put it in an old bottle with a stopper top.
Another idea is to create a jar of love coupons with things like "one free back massage," and "cook my specialty taquitos." She can redeem them at any time.
and Christmas is coming up and the only thing he said he wants is me and a long weight lifting bar (seperatly of course) I was thinking of sending one of those edible arrangements to his work but I never know if he is driving or in the office (works for a trucking company) Any Ideas?
Going out to eat is always nice, but if you want to give him a gift, think about what he really likes to do.
My husband made me a Red Vine bouquet and I filled his with Love Notes candy! I went on Shutterfly and put a picture of us at our wedding on a shirt w/ the caption “Married My Best Friend” and our wedding date. In a small box, I placed inside a test pack w/ a positive pregnancy result… A six-pack of diet Coke and a gallon of chocolate ice cream — it was meaningful to the two of us, something no one else would think of giving me….expensive gifts just bought as a gift can’t hold a candle to something simple and inexpensive with loads of personal meaning. I made a poster of the different popular love teams (i.e tarzan & jane, mickey and minnie mouse) and in the middle I put our names in bolder, bigger letters and put it in a romantic frame I personally made. I got dollars worth in dollar bills and printed labels with things we could do and rolled them up. Our anniversary is on Groundhog Day.I went to Build-A-Bear and made my husband a groundhog and included inside the stuffed animal a personal message I recorded while making “Phil”. stamped 3 hearts on the frame (for our third anniversary) displayed it in the bathroom where we see it everyday 10 years later. -Fawn (yep, I just came up with this one so I’d better try it out myself ).

(go to the dollar show, get ice cream, go for a walk to the store to get a candy…) It was fun and we got to spend time together. A puzzle with a picture of your wedding and you can spend time every year putting it together they make them at Walmart or Meijer. My sweet hubby made me a DVD of family pictures from when we dated through our 10th anniversary using some of my favorite music as background. I arranged for the children to be gone & prepared a dinner & greeted him in a piece of lingerie & dinner & dessert was me. A mix cd of songs from our dating and married life that reminded me of him or a special memory we share. It is like memory lane of our marriage and it always shows us how far we have come, let’s enjoy where we have been and look forward to where we are going! For our 25th Anniversary I gave my husband a silver trophy that read To My Greatest Friend and Lover. Ordered a print with all the family’s important dates on it-wedding day, births of our children, etc. I made him a video that told him all the things I love about him and put pictures of us throughout our relationship.
