My husband and myself will be celebrating 13 years of marriage on Monday July 7th, and I had no idea what to get him as a gift. After 13 years of marriage and 15 years together, just about every gift that you can think of has been given. I searched the internet and came across
http://www.hallmark.com/anniversary/ideas/anniversary-gift-ideas/. This site lists some great gift ideas from the 1st up to the 60th wedding anniversary. These include gifts to give to your mate, and gifts to give to other couples. Here is a list of my favorites.
Year 1- Paper Anniversary
A nicely handwritten love letter to your spouse is the perfect way to say I love you that 1st year. Be sure to mention memorable moments that happened during the wedding, and any 1st your shared your first year of marriage. You can also give your spouse "love coupons" to redeem at their leisure.
Year 2- Leather Anniversary
Year 12- Silk
After 12 years of marriage a little spice on the anniversary is just what you need. The soft feel of silk sheets, robes, and undergarments are perfect to set the mood for a romantic night.
Year 14- Ivory
Year 17- Wine/Spirits
Year 22- Water
Water is romantic, calming, and tranquil. For your
22nd, a nice trip to a waterfall, a cruise, or a water front vacation property is perfect.
Year 38- Luck
Year 38, the year of luck! Get really lucky with a trip to Vegas and win, win, win! You can also take in some great shows and renew your vows in the quickie marriage capital of the world!
