Yep, been there, done that. But have no fear, you and I never have to go through that again. And we got back some pretty awesome answers! These are just a few of our favorites. Feel free to borrow these ideas and make them your own. I most certainly will! 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.
When it dried, I printed a poem I wrote on it, burned the edges to make it look OLD, rolled it up, tied it with a red ribbon, and put it in the bottle. He loved it and it still sits on his dresser by the bed! My husband took the batteries out of a wall clock, set it to the time we got married, and wrote a poem around the outside of it.
I bought a jar and filled it with his favorite candy and wrapped each candy with a piece of paper that had a reason why I love him. On our first year anniversary, my husband gave me a photo album he had worked on the entire year to commemorate our first year together.
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…. I made a poster of the different popular love teams i. 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.
An envelope full of handmade vouchers for a back tickle, massage, favourite dinner, movie night, etc. He could redeem his vouchers whenever he wanted. A mix cd of songs from our dating and married life that reminded me of him or a special memory we share.
We love to listen to it. He really enjoyed his gift since he never received one as a child. I cross stitched a wedding sampler for our 25th anniversary for my husband. Etsy has wonderfully thoughtful gifts. I made him a video that told him all the things I love about him and put pictures of us throughout our relationship. Our anniversary is on Groundhog Day.. Husband made me a dozen roses out of my favorite candy stuffed Twizzlers. Wrote out the words of all the little ways he shows me love everyday and framed it… stamped 3 hearts on the frame for our third anniversary displayed it in the bathroom where we see it everyday 10 years later.
