First year anniversary gift

Hi everyone,

 I haven't been on the boards in forever....life is so crazy busy!! Our one year anniversary is coming up fast, and I still have no idea what I'm going to get my husband. We got married in Maui, at Olowalu- I was trying to think of something to tie into that, but all of my ideas are lame. I was googling "paper anniversary" and already saw the plane ticket and concert ideas, but we've already got a vacation planned next month and my budget is almost non-existent. Any creative ideas? What did you give your DH?

Re: First year anniversary gift

  • We didn't get each other anniversary gifts, but when I was looking into it, I remember someone mentioned this: http://indigonight.com/

    It shows the night sky as was seen on a certain date from a certain location.

  • That's so cool!

    We went out to a local art show and bought ourselves a piece of art. It's a painting of a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows diving into it... they have inner tubes and everything.

    Yes. We ARE that ridiculous!

    The process of picking things out was really fun though. It was cool to buy each other a joint present.

     Yay!  Glad I could help...Let me know how it turns out!

     

    Kaesha - I love the idea of picking out artwork together too!  My parents have some pieces of art that they picked out during their honeymoon and early in their relationship...it holds special memories for them, and even for me since I remember them from my childhood growing up.  It's great because it's so personal and represents the two of you :)

    mrspresley first showed me that back in the day, and that's what i got DH for our first anniversary.  It's still hanging up in our bedroom, next to our wedding photo!!

    yes, that's what we did for our first anniversary! they were even kind enough to do a custom backdrop for me so instead of a generic scene it was the beach at the Kahala! we have it up on our wall next to our wedding photos.

  • what a great idea!, i still have four more months to get it done. but i agree that time has flown by fast since the big day.
  • Such great ideas.. I've only been married for 2 months.. I hope I remember these next April :o)
  • I am looking for a present for my husband and found this post, so I am responding a bit late.lol I love the http://indigonight.com/ idea!!  My husband for our 1 year gave me a wedding dress sketch by http://www.mydreamlines.com/  It was a great gift to share like the night sky gift!  I love art, so this is perfect!
