Yesterday, we posed a simple question to Happy Wives Club members on our Facebook Community page: What is the most creative anniversary gift you (and/or your husband) has ever given for less than ? When it dried, I printed a poem I wrote on it, burned the edges to make it look OLD, rolled it up, tied it with a red ribbon, and put it in the bottle. 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.

We asked each child and grandchild to write a one-page memoir of their most special memories of the couple.
You can arrange for a special delivery from the bakery along with flowers – most confectioners offer the service. If you have any special gifts for her (like a ring or jewellery) hide it inside the cake.
It’s another installment of wedding anniversary gift ideas!
Of course, you would need a good picture of the cake. Another suggestion is to make a video of the family and put it to music. We started with pictures of the parents as children and as they were dating, continued with their wedding pictures then followed with all the children and their wedding pictures and their families.
We asked each family member for several pictures of their families and any old pictures they might have of their parents. Each one of them helped with the anniversary party and the expenses. We had a TV & VCR set up in a corner and kept the video going for people to stop by and watch for a little while.In order to celebrate our 50th step, today I bring to you 50 completely unique, thoughtful, creative and inexpensive anniversary ideas.

Do you know “cafuné” in Brazilian Portuguese means “The act of tenderly running your fingers through someone's hair”? For effect, keep her eyes blindfolded on your way to the place (I’m hoping you’ll not use public transport : P), till the time you reach the place. If you want to go beyond the romantic dinner, go out on a day long photo shoot. Wake her up by starting to give her a body massage. Don’t forget to give a separate copy of your love letter to her (what with all that hard work?Most of the ideas – as you’d see – are also applicable to any celebration in the context of a romantic relationship. There are many such awesomely romantic words and phrases in other languages which have no English equivalent. Visit all the places in the city which hold special memories for you and take couple photos. What if you could recreate elements of your wedding day – only now, as a piece of art? : P) The end result would look something like this. Girls love flower bouquets and girls love chocolate.Unleash your inner child, go see a bad film or rock anything else on the list. Have you ever been just a couple days away from your wedding anniversary and trying to figure out what meaningful gift you can get…inexpensively? But have no fear, you (and I) never have to go through that again. Feel free to borrow these ideas and make them your own. Then I took a piece of paper and “aged” it with coffee and tea grounds.Now, he’s looking forward to our 50th for another trophy.
