HELP Need Anniversary ideas

My 14th annivresary is coming up on the 22nd. And I haven't got a clue what to get for DH. I know that if I ask he'll tell me that he doesn't want anything. He never wants anything and if you get him something anyway that he doesn't like, he'll return it or not use it.

There's still a laser level in the basement in it's packaging that I got him for his birthday two years ago and a computer game that I bought him before 2001, still in the box unopened! I should ebay that sucker or something.

He'll be taking me out to dinner and I've got a coupon for that...I'm on that place's email list for coupons. The restaurant is where we went on our first real date, well a franchise of it. We went on our first real date at one that is now closed in FL.

And I've got the lingerie bought for later...just in case I don't eat too much and we aren't too tired, or mad at each other.

I suppose I should get him a card.

Traditional 14th wedding anniversary gifts have a theme of Ivory.
A contemporary or modern 14th anniversary gift has a theme of Gold Jewellery.
The flowers associated with the 14th anniversary are Dahlia

Well, he won't want ANY of those! Shoot! I don't want any of those either!

hummm.... Any ideas? It would be really nice to get him something that he really likes this year as last year... well it blew chunks! We were both pretty ticked off at each other and barely acknowledged the day at all.

Maybe I should get a second to talk to him about this and talk him into considering our recent trip a gift to each other and we just do the dinner and call it a day? He would probably go for that as he's very practical.

Although, he did ask me what I wanted and I asked if I could get the bedroom furniture that we've been wanting forever... probably not this year though. hummm...


  1. i think that if you give him something from the heart, he'll be happy. :)

    BTW, there's a party goin' on at the Plaid. Stop by!

  2. Make him something. Like Blonde Brownies (kind of ivory colored) or write a journal to sum up your feelings about the last 14 yrs and hope for the future. Or write him a special poem. My husband just sings to me, and I sing back. We take our rings in for their annual cleaning and just enjoy each other. But we're cheap like that.

  3. "just in case I don't eat too much and we aren't too tired, or mad at each other..."


    So this is what I have to look forward to... maybe?

    Whatever you give him, I have to give him half. No, wait, that's for birthdays. Nevermind.

  4. A really good card and a nice gentle back rub are about all I ever do-- unless there's a super-good computer game coming out that The Man just totally wants. Thanks for reminding me, by the way. It's our anniversary on Tuesday and I haven't got anything for him.
