I am still undecided. Our anniversary is in a few weeks, and I know he is taking me out. We are getting a new puppy this weekend, so I am kind of rolling my birthday and anniversary into this weekend because he is taking me to Cheesecake Factor and on a 12 hour drive to get this puppy (which costs quite a bit becuase it is a Saint Bernard).

I may get him fishing stuff because he loves fishing (maybe some new lures, bobbers, and pole). Maybe get your husband something that you know interests him? Or if he drinks a certain “beverage” you could buy a bunch of those little bottles and make a liquor bouquet.

I am terrible with gift ideas becuase I end up just getting my husband something he really wants and has mentioned in passing more than twice.

I pan on getting my husband a autographed picture  the hosts of his favorite British car show “Top Gear.” Found it on ebay from the UK and plan on buying it at the begining of next month. Also  for his birthday last year I framed up so pictures of his cars for our apartment. Since then he bought a new car and I plan on framing two pictures  of it to add to the collection we have on our wall. If you can’t tell my hubby is a car guy. 🙂

If you go by the list of traditional anniversary gifts by year, the first year of marriage is “paper.” My DH got me tickets tickets to a play at our local arts centre, and I got him tickets to a concert 🙂

I made something like this:

For the Modern 1st year gift = Clock.

So I bought him a new watch.

@HappilyEverAfter54:  First of all…happy anniversary! Can’t believe the time has gone by this quickly! You have a great idea with the shoes :-). Your DH will love them!

I ended up searching through board posts last night and finally settled on DH’s gift. I got him a new return address stamp. We’re moving next week and he loves those things. I also got him a digital picture frame. He has been talking about one forever, and Amazon had a really good price on one. I think he’ll really like it!

Enjoy celebrating! 🙂

Our first anniversary just passed! DH took me for a weekend getaway to a resort that’s a 2 hour drive away. And we are not buying each other gifts because we are buying our first home (closing is next week!). In general, we gift each other vacations a lot 🙂

Our one year anniversary is in two months.  We don’t normally do gifts – but we do TRIPS!  We are going to the Tetons (where we were going to get married) and our plan is to climb a peak.  H has done all the major peaks, I just want to do one that’s my speed.

@HappilyEverAfter54: Hike up a waterfall?  Or like to the top of a waterfall?  Where is this one?

 

H claims I can do the actual Grand Teton itself which is a 5.4 climbing route at most (I can do up to 5.8 in climbing).  It’s just the 7,000 vertical foot approach that is the long part.  I’ve been trail running and mountain biking to get in shape for it!  Trust me – I am tired a LOT!

My anniversarry is in a month…I’m totally lost…I have no idea what to get him. We are on a pretty tight budget too. We want to go on a little road trip…so if we can manage the funds maybe we will forgoe gifts and have that be our gift.  I have thought about writing something out…like something special. I feel like I didn’t hardly get to talk to him on our wedding day and looking back there’s so many thigns I would have wanted to say! Also…kinda hoping ot get knocked up this next cycle..sot hat would be a nice gift…but can’t count on that.

Our first Anniversary is still 6 months away…

But I plan with this Marriage to follow the Traditional & Modern Anniversary Gift Lists (1st is Paper OR Clocks)

Haven’t figured out what I’ll be giving him yet… but I am sure it will be great

Lol, I am known to be a very generous (and creative) Gift Giver
