Our anniversary gift to each other was a trip to New Orleans.

We went on a blowout delayed honeymoon that started on our “eleven-month-iversary”.  So, we didn’t exchange gifts for our anniversary.  We don’t really exchange gifts at all, ever.  No birthday gifts and no seasonal holiday gifts.  It’s pretty refreshing.  I don’t mind being generous towards people when I’m feeling inspired, but I dislike gratuitous gifts-for-the-sake-of-gifts.  Luckily my husband feels the same way!

I had the top tier of our wedding cake remade by a local ice cream cake shop. 😀

We also were on a three week Mediterrean vacation on our 11 monthaversary and agreed that we’d pass on gifts, although he ended up buying me a pretty pendant in Florence.  I think I just got him a card…

For our second, I think I got chocolate and I gave him a funny T-shirt (2nd anniversary is cotton), and again we were on vacation for our 1 year 10 monthaversary.  We really should have considered what time of year we prefer to travel when we picked our wedding date!

I decided (and am pushing it on my husband) to give the traditional gifts.  I like that it’s almost a game to give a gift that is paper, cotton, etc. 

For our first year, I gave him stock in a company that he likes.  It’s an unusual gift!  They sent him a piece of paper with his name, the company, etc that we will frame and hold on to.  This year is cotton for us and I haven’t come up with anything yet.  I told him clothes were too easy and that he really needed to think outside the box for this one!  Let me know if you have any ideas for that!

we are going to napa for our one year. I’m also giving him boudoir pics for our first anniversary. Since the theme for the first year is paper, i thought this was appropriate

I’m giving him a nice card. This is a lot, coming from me, because I generally think cards are pointless. Laughing

But seriously. We’re going to Maine for three nights so I think exchanging cards is enough. With a LO on the way, we can’t justify spending the extra money on fancy gifts.

For our 1 year anniversary ‘paper’ I cut out shapes out of maps with the cities we were born in (boy shape for his birthplace, girl shape for my birthplace)…and then heart shapes for where we met, fell in love in, got married in…and framed them.

 

This year is ‘cotton’ and I am personalizing a jersey for him

We did traditional paper gifts. He gave me a gift certificate for a spa and I gave him a framed print of the beach we were married on with the stars/constilations deplicted exactly as they were on our wedding night (from indigonights.com)

We did traditional as well. I gave him tickets to our favorite NFL team and he gave me a canvas print of our favorite wedding photo. It was nice.

@Ryansgirl:  Date twin! (don’t see as many of us anymore, haha…) Well, he is a terrible gift buyer, and I’m not all that great either. So, whenever we buy presents for each other, he feels bad that he didn’t get something great for me, and I feel bad that he didn’t “try” as hard as I think he should. Gifts aren’t really either of our “love languages,” so I’ll be fine if we agree to not give gifts. Maybe I’ll try to see how he feels about writing a heartfelt “love letter”, and we’ll probably go out to a nice dinner.
