I did not buy my husband's first anniversary gift until less than a week before the big date. We talked about the first year being a paper gift, but sort of left it at that. Then Michael mentioned that he'd ordered my paper gift. Holy crap. I had NOTHING and time was ticking away. I had an idea of what I could do, but I had no time to do it! YIKES. Lucky for me I found it and got the gift completed in time. For the record, he gave me a handmade picture frame with layers of beautiful paper on the frame. I got him a blank book of sorts, with pre-printed questions all about our relationship. Some questions were silly, some thoughtful, and some absurd. I answered each as I saw fit, and it's pretty amusing.
Year 2's gift is cotton. I was all over it. Michael needed a new swimsuit and new hang-around weekend t-shirts. Easy peasy. I also found some adorable scrabble pillow covers on Etsy to add a bit of whimsy. He in turn made a big deal of getting me a non-cotton gift. Do you know what he gave me?
A DAY at the spa with, count em, 4 treatments.
Have you ever spent a day at the spa? I had, once, in Lake Placid. It's glorious. I had only one treatment scheduled, but I took advantage of each and every inch of the jacuzzi, steam room, showers, relaxation room etc. Highly recommended.
But y'all. If you can get 4 TREATMENTS?! Whoa boy. Yesterday I had a splendid combination of scheduled treatments and free time to enjoy the amenities. And today I am still relaxed! Can't wait to go back. Now all I have to do is figure out how to make this work with the 3rd anniversary themed gift
