Big Anniversary Problems

I posted this to my anniversary board, but I'm hoping that you local girls can help me out with this.  So our first anniversary is this coming weekend.  We've been in negotiations for our first house for the past couple of months & by "we've" I mean, I have been doing all the work.  Last night my husband mentioned that he couldn't believe that it has been a year already & that he's excited about the gift that he's getting.  Crap.  I haven't given any thought whatsoever to anniversary gifts because I've been neck deep in house stuff.  I did order a small replica of our wedding cake (I couldn't bear to eat year old cake, but kudos to anyone who's doing that or who did that.) for Sunday, but that's it.  Now I feel absolutely horrible because I haven't gotten him anything.  I was thinking about Blackhawks tickets...actually, I thought about Bears/Packers tickets, but those babies are upwards of $500 a piece.  I've never been to a hockey game before & he grew up playing hockey, so I thought it would be an awesome gift (not to mention they'd be paper tickets).  There are tickets starting at $55 a piece, which is doable, but they're upper level seats.  Do you think that nosebleed seats would be ok?  I did find closer seats, level 1 seats, but they're almost $200 a piece...ouch.  What do you guys think I should do, or is there something else that I could get him?

Re: Big Anniversary Problems

  • Do they have to be Blackhawk tickets?  We've been to Wolves game and they're pretty fun, although not NFL.  Try looking on Craigslist for ticket. $55 a seat in the nosebleeds, ouch!  That's really up to you and what you think your hubby will like.  Does he have any other interests?  Maybe you could see a play, or show?  Does it have to be something this weekend? You could go out to eat somewhere and take him to out in a week or two?  Try looking on this website for some ideas  http://www.chicagotraveler.com/attractions.htm

  • Yeah, I was actually thinking of Wolves tickets; I've been told that their games are more fun than the Blackhawks.  Thanks for the link!

  • Their games are a lot of fun!  Weekday games are EMPTY!  They do put on a good show.
