Tad and I decided to give each other traditional wedding anniversary gifts, the first year being paper. (I wonder where these traditions came from). I wanted to get creative with Tad's gifts and made him coupons for a year. I made 52 of them so he can pick one every week. These aren't skimpy coupons either! They have things like "Good for a one hour massage", "A round of golf on me", "I'll take your car the carwash", and even a "Good for one argument win of your choice". Uh-oh, I think I set myself up for a lot of work this year!
I also had the lyrics of our first dance song, Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen, printed out and framed. I even wrote Tad tiny love letters and gave him mini packages with this little kit. I couldn't help it, it is so gosh darn cute! I placed it in the mailbox and told Tad that he had mail. On a Sunday. He was a little confused but laughed when he saw what it was.
For my gift, Tad gave me an awesome Harry Potter book set- I love it! It came it a cool little box too.
If you are married, do you give traditional anniversary gifts? I'm excited for year 2- cotton! Maybe a new cute little dress? I also sewed Tad a cotton tie for part of his gift this year and thought, oops, maybe I should have saved it for next year. Oh well, I have almost a whole year to think about a "cotton" gift!
