It was a complete surprise and is my most prized gift from him (we’ve been married 22 years now – hoping for an updated version ). My husband gave me this Love basket with all my favorite things in it (smell goods “candy” whitebear that smells like chocolate and a red and pink heart with a rose in my name). An envelope full of handmade vouchers for a back tickle, massage, favourite dinner, movie night, etc. He really enjoyed his gift since he never received one as a child. One year gave him a heart shaped box with a note inside “this heart is filled with kisses for you from me.” He loved it! If you think no such union exists, or if you’ve come to the conclusion that arguments are necessary in marriage, allow Fawn to challenge that notion and set you on a path to creating the greatest partnership in life: your marriage.”Fawn Weaver is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of Happy Wives Club: One Woman's Worldwide Search for the Secrets of a Great Marriage, adopting the same name as the Club she founded in 2010.Now, he’s looking forward to our 50th for another trophy. I cross stitched a wedding sampler for our 25th anniversary for my husband. The Happy Wives Club community has grown to include more than 1 million women in over 110 countries around the world.The topic of your photo book is up to you– honeymoon, first year of marriage, etc.There are tons of online photo book publishers out there where you upload all the photos you’d like to use and select the theme and layout of the book. You could even make a photo book with Instagram photos (here or here).
When she’s not writing or working, she's happily doting over her husband of twelve years, Keith (and sometimes manages to do all three simultaneously).
For our first anniversary (which is traditionally the paper anniversary), I took sand from Lake Michigan (where my husband was born) and put it in an old bottle with a stopper top.
He loved it and it still sits on his dresser by the bed! My husband took the batteries out of a wall clock, set it to the time we got married, and wrote a poem around the outside of it. I bought a jar and filled it with his favorite candy and wrapped each candy with a piece of paper that had a reason why I love him. On our first year anniversary, my husband gave me a photo album he had worked on the entire year to commemorate our first year together. One year we decided to get creative and set a limit and whatever we did it had to fit in a noodle box. Husband made me a dozen roses out of my favorite candy (stuffed Twizzlers). Wrote out the words of all the little ways he shows me love everyday and framed it… Treat your spouse to a 30-minute massage, followed by an enzyme facial (don’t attempt to do extractions…enzyme facial mask will do the trick and can be purchased anywhere for less than ), manicure and pedicure.
Last year, for our first anniversary, the traditional gift was paper.
Brad got me an Indiana print I had been swooning over, and I got him (and me) tickets to a Zac Brown Band concert.
