Ugh,any of you ladies here have any suggestions on what I can get Jim for our 2 month anniversary?He is a firefighter,but I'm thinking maybe I'll buy him a Beta fish or a plant/flower to grow along with our relationship,but I dunno.I'm open to suggestions,of course.

Let me see....firefighter, eh? Well, for Mark's Birthday, I sent a gift set, homemade of course. I got an Eternity cologne set with some shades as a gift with a shade case. Then, I sent some chocolates, and a card with all my hugs and kisses on it. Then, I also sent something personal of mine. We wont talk about that. lol Secret. lol Well, the fish idea is good, but what about since he is a firefighter, isnt there some fish called fire something, or fighter fish? lol Then, get two, one for you and one to represent him if you can. Then, again...I dont know much about fish. I think that is a good idea though.

Two months! That's awesome! The fish sounds like a great idea. That is the kind of gift that we can look at and be reminded of you (isn't that the point!). Does he have any hobbies? A favorite sports team? Maybe a book about one of his interest? Maybe something you could build on at each anniversary. My friend and her husband started giving anniversary gifts from every place they visited, either together or separately. She has a watercolor from CA, a picture frame from TX, and earrings from somewhere else. Is there something about your hometown that is special for you that you want to share with him? Hope this helps! Here's to many more anniversaries!

well Em is right maybe u can get idea from his hobby or favorite interest..Like what i sent to my honey..i sew a x-stitch >>fish (salmon)since i know he loves fishin (only if u have time or patience to stitch one).....What about a love birds? isnt it cute to see 2 cute lil birds in a cage in love..? It'll remind u both of ur love ehhh...There are many great ideas, u can make a personal card, a love poem maybe (i made one for his b-day), a picture of u both framed & wrapped nicely..these r my suggestions, u can send ur personal made gift along with a perfume, a cap, a tie, a shirt or whatever...lol..Hope i can help... Happy anniv..gud luck
