My 8th wedding anniversary is looming ahead and I need some ideas of what to get for my wife. Any suggestions?
No relatives that we could or would leave her with. I am the last one in my family, hers has basically disowned us and is 3 hours away anyway (wouldn't leave her unsupervised with thme anyway). There are many things that would be smoother in life if we had family to fall back on. Simple stuff like watching DD for a few hours, or just someone to go to for advice. I'm from a single parent family, she's fro a disfunctional one, not much valid advice to be had there anyway.motivated said:Do you have a relative that your child can stay with overnight?
Order in anything that she does not have to cook, and show up in your birthday suit with a great attitude
Music, a few candles, flowers , a bottle of wine/sparkling cider are good too. Drag out the photos of you when you got married
Celebrate your life together.
I didn't know there were traditional gifts for the years that weren't "round ones" like 10, 20 etc.culpeper said:The traditional gift for the 8th anniversary is copper or bronze.
The modern gift is linen or lace.
Which opens up a whole host of gift ideas.
Think copper hanging pots, or a garden statue (doesn't have to be big!) or kitchen ornament, perhaps. Or some lacy underwear, or a lace tablecloth or set of d'oileys, or a good linen outfit for 'best' wear.
It is, but it isn't.PinkBat said:She wants poetry......but you don't write poetry.
You said you have some photos that you could work into a scrapbook.......Guess what....a guy doing a scrapbook of memories.....well, that's just like writing poetry.
