My husband and I are coming up on 6 years of marriage. Every year, I’m on the lookout for the perfect modern anniversary gift for him. Though you could say this is already pretty modern gesture in my family because we don’t tend to gift each other much for anniversary at least. My husband and I make it a point to share a little something special to celebrate our commitment and love.
Though we’ve been together for a few years, I still remember and relive the day we met for the first time. We aren’t your ordinary couple. Apart from meeting online, we met for the first time face to face at Downtown Disney Lego Store. Needless to say, many anniversary gifts have been very playful and childlike but this is us.
As we get older and celebrate our anniversaries I try to keep the gifts or plans pretty modern. Our celebration usually involves food and a surprise gift. The hubs knows I am a sucker for romantic settings. He’s cooked and served up a candle light dinner and he’s also done a special hotel getaway! My husband however is still a kid at heart.He is a collector of many things including legos and superhero comic books and his taste in fancy things usually have a kid like edge.
I love our love! The hubs is known for asking me and jokingly says “at what age do I have to start dressing like an adult” I laugh and say “Never” He keeps our marriage very interesting and fun!
If you have a playful and modern husband, here are some fun gifts to consider for your next anniversary!
What is the best anniversary gift you’ve received or given?
