Expert edding Planning Tips

1st Wedding Anniversary - Paper

On a budget? Write a love letter. Give romantic "coupons". You might also try personalized stationary.

2nd Wedding Anniversary - Cotton

Clothing - tshirts, hoodies, pajamas. Maybe a bathrobe with a suprise in the pocket? How about a handmade quilt?

3rd Wedding Anniversary - Leather

A journal with a leather cover, a leather braded bracelet, leather jacket, boots, how about luggage with tickets for a vacation?

4th Wedding Anniversary - Fruit & Flowers

Chocolate covered strawberries, bouquet of flowers, a fruit basket delivered via a romantic picnic. If your anniversary is in the winter, buy plane tickets somewhere tropical to enjoy fresh island fruit and flowers.

5th Wedding Anniversary - Wood

Anything made out of wood will do. Tools for your handyman. How about a camping trip in the woods?

6th Wedding Anniversary - Candy

Go crazy with assorted chocolates ... replace one of the chocolates with an extra special suprise! For our creative folks, spell out a romantic message in gummy candy.

7th Wedding Anniversary - Wool

Sweaters are perfect for this one. If they knit, give a basket full of yarns. A wool blanket with a custom monogram is a unique idea.

8th Wedding Anniversary - Pottery

Deliver a beautiful flowering plant in the pot and hide a card in the foliage. A ceramic sculpture (a gnome) for the garden?

9th Wedding Anniversary - Willow / Wicker

Pack a picnic basket and suprise them with lunch or dinner in the park. Buy them a custom made basket filled with their favorite goodies or items for a hobby. Wicker furniture for the yard or patio. Avoid giving the mrs. a wicker laundry basket ... this could lead to trouble.

10th Wedding Anniversary - Tin/Aluminum

Popcorn or candy in collectable tin containers will work for this. Bake something delicious and wrap it in foil.
