Hey ladies! So I just realized that our first anniversary is just under two months away (Where did this year go!?) and I realized I have no clue what I should get DH for an anniversary gift! What did you or will you get your husbands?

@Brideonabudgetlauren: I’m going the traditional route and getting him something paper. I thought about giving him a newspaper – maybe a back print issue from the day and city we got married in, and one from the city we are taking our anniversary trip in. I ended up changing my mind, but it is still a fun idea!
I decided on having a custom drawing done from a photograph of our ceremony spot at the wedding venue. I’m going to put it in a cute frame and think it will be a really awesome thing to have for years to come! We can always display it and move it around to different areas of the house as a reminder if the vows we made.
Some other ideas if you go the paper route:
tickets to a sporting event or concert.
homemade coupon book
print of your first dance photo, matted on the lyrics of the song
gift certificate for a couples massage
a nice journal, if he is a writer
handwritten letters – one to open each month
a jar filled with little folded papers, each with a different date idea on it
something to repurpose wedding cards you got – a little cutout collage or shadowbox
Photo book or scrapbook of your first year together

@TheHoneyWajr: Holy awesome suggestions batman!!
Who are you using to have the custom drawing done? That’s a really neat idea! My husband is definitely on the more creative side of things, so I definitely want to surprise him with something he wouldn’t expect, while still going the traditional paper route. I also stumbled across that website that recreates the night sky from any date, and they happen to have the skyline of the city we got married in as an option so I’m considering that too!

@Brideonabudgetlauren: I found an etsy vendor to do the drawing – I am so excited to see it!
I know what you are talking about, those things are so cool! You can tell I have been thinking about this a lot lately haha, that is why all these ideas are fresh in my mind.
