@countrylove914:  YAY newlywed christmas! 🙂  You know, for our first christmas as husband and wife, I framed our vows for him set in the first initial of each of our names.  I went for the sentimental factor, and he loved it! They now hang above our bed:

Here’s my thread on the topic:

I’m still working on what i’m getting him this year. We’re going on a pretty big vacation right through Christmas, so we are taking a much lighter hand with gifts this year.

I’m all about experience/sentimental gifts. DH is into extreme sports and that kinda stuff and i’m a huge baby. He’s always trying to get me to adventure with him, so I’m thinking I will pay for/set up a day for us to go zip-lining or hang-gliding or something. I will also probably handmake something sentimental like I did for his birthday (not sure what yet). For more materialistic gifts, I am also getting him a new GoPro (newer model of one he uses for skydiving), a toaster oven (sounds stupid lol but he has a super old cheap one he uses everyday that is broken but he refuses to replace. It doesn’t match our kitchen and is all burned up and falling apart so I am going to get one that is stainless like our kitchen – this i probably more for me than him because he doesn’t care LOL), and (this is probably TMI lol) I also ordered a bunch of lingerie and plan on doing like “7 nights of Christmas” where I dress up in something different and I have something new/exciting planned for every night ;p

I love Christmas lol

His family is getting us ski gear, but he doesn’t have a warm coat to wear skiing, so I got him one. We are also filling stockings for each other, he will get a small lego set (hes addicted to the stuff), a couple fun pairs of boxers, some candy, customized playing cards that each have a different picture of us on the front and one of our wedding pictures on the back, and love coupons that I made him.

@countrylove914:  Oh no! I just realized by reading your post that it’s our first Christmas as husband and wife as well.  We’ve been together for a few years and I guess I just never thought it was “different” this time. Guess I should do something a little more commemorative?

@pengoala:  Love your idea with the initials! …except our initials are “B” and “S” so I would need to be conscious of the order they go in. lol We’d set ourselves up too easily for jokes in our family.

@housebee:  OMG how did you get assassins creed on sale for $30? DH has been wanting it but since it’s new I haven’t been able to find it on sale anywhere.

@countrylove914:  Last year was our first xmas as H&W. I ordered DH a keychain that had the coordinates on it from where we got married. He keeps it on his work keys so its with him 5 days a week & whenevery anyone asks him what it is he happily shares the story. I got him other little gadgets like something for the BBQ, some new clothes, etc. This year I ordered him a “daddy diaper tool belt”, a pen that looks like a bullet (DH is in law enforcement) & Garth Brooks pack that came out on black friday (we are going to see him in vegas in january). eek!
