I even saved our tickets and framed them to always remember the occasion. Celebrate your first anniversary by jetting off with airline tickets. ART PRINTS Brad gave me an Indiana print (where we both grew up and currently live) I’d been coveting for my 1st anniversary gift. There are tons of sentimental and customizable art prints out there. PAPER PRODUCTS (stationery, business cards, etc.) This is quite the obvious paper product gift idea.
When you’re ordering tickets, just make sure to order the paper version of tickets– it’s not really a paper gift if you get the paperless tickets. Here are some of my favorites: custom house portrait personalized map print custom wedding bouquet painting OR you can save this idea for your 4th wedding anniversary custom family portrait illustration Star Wars custom family portrait This artist also does custom wedding day, superhero, and movie/book (Harry Potter, Ghostbusters, etc.) portraits. There’s tons of pretty stationery out there for the ladies.
Today I’m sharing some great second anniversary gift ideas.
Last year, for our first anniversary, the traditional gift was paper.
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.
Go an extra step and have your first dance song lyrics or vows printed on top of the canvas.
This year we’re moving on to cotton– the traditional second anniversary gift.
Some of these ideas could work for more than one anniversary year, so if you need extra inspiration, read through the whole list.
We hope you enjoy it, and we wish you lots of days worth celebrating, all through the year.
Apparently, cotton was chosen because by the time a couple reaches their second anniversary, they are more comfortable with each other. So I thought I’d share some cotton themed, second anniversary gift ideas with you. Take a map and stitch a heart around where you live, where you married, where you met, or whatever.
You could also stitch a little house around where your first home is located.
