My three year wedding anniversary is right around the corner. I always do remember special occasions, although I like to play dumb as if I forgot all about them. I’m not sure why, but I get a twisted satisfaction out of letting my wife believe I’m a total A-hole right up until the moment I surprise her.
Everything has become so focused on the baby that I feel like I’ve lost a bit of my mojo in the “coming up with cool gift idea category”. Of course, I Googled anniversary gift ideas. Everything is based on the old traditional gift idea. For third year, the suggested gifts are to be made of glass, crystal or leather. I’m sure I could come up with several ideas, most of them comical, based on those criteria.
My question to you is, does anyone really follow that traditional gift mumbo-jumbo? Or do you just buy the person something that you know they’ll like, regardless what Google and some old ninnies say?
Let’s face it, it’s hard to get a gift for the woman who has it all;)
“I'm sure I could come up with several ideas, most of them comical, based on those criteria”….So, wouldn't it inevitably be something you know she will like, regardless?! Combine it all….tradition with creativity = smiling.
What to get your wife for your 3rd wedding anniversary? That's easy! A tramp stamp of her name surrounded by hearts and flowers OR matching air-brushed outfits! Anything else would just be silly! 😉
In all honesty, I love getting simple things from my husband. You know, that mushy-gushy stuff. A poem or a handwritten message in a card that reminds me of the thousands of notes we wrote to each other in high school…getting to go out on a date with no kids and hold hands and flirt and talk and laugh like we used to do every weekend…or just staying in, tucking the kids into their beds, and eating dinner while watching a great movie and drinking some wine on the couch!
Celebrating the day you were married means that you would do it all over again, so show her! Trust me, sometimes the greatest gifts are the ones that are not tangible! Flowers and lingerie never hurt either…just saying.
