Anniversary gifts
Tue, 10-07-2003 - 2:23pm
I was just wondering if everyone gets their SO or DH anything for their anniversary? Our 4 year wedding anniversary is coming up and normally we go to dinner and a movie. My husband isn't real big on the "gift thing". But, he has been working a lot of overtime..7 days a week...and I would like to get him something this year. Any suggestions on what kind of gift?? Thanks for any input!

At my house, we pretty much base the "gift" thing on our financial situation at the time.

DH and I just celebrated our 4th anniversary, but we also recently moved into a new house, so money's a little tighter right now. He wanted to buy me some jewelery, but I had to put my foot down--no gifts this year. Instead, he made me a really nice dinner, and we enjoyed a quiet evening at home.

If you're wanting to get your hubby something nice, look at his interests. If he's been working a lot of hours, perhaps a gift certificate for a relaxing activity (spa treatment, dinner at a really nice restaurant) or a weekend at a bed and breakfast. My DH really loves to fish, but doesn't get time for it often. A couple of years ago, I gave him a gift certificate for an afternoon on a chartered boat out on Lake Michigan to do some salmon fishing; he loved it!

I, too, am always looking for goof "gift" ideas for DH, so let me know what you decide!
