Circe Posted February 3, 2014 Author Share Posted February 3, 2014 Ok... 5th wedding anniversary. Years ago we decided to only do gifts for birthdays (nothing else - not x-mas, V-day, anniversary etc) and dinner at a restaurant for our anniversary. We usually have dinner together at a restaurant once a week anyway - so it probably seems like it's not very special to do the same thing on your anniversary - but for us, somehow, it still is. It's just this year... this last year I've really learned what a great guy he is and he has stood by me through some really tough stuff - so I'd like to get him something. I think I might get him the new kindle (his one doesn't light up so you can't read in the dark with it) and see if I can engrave a couple of lines on it. I thought I might dig up a poem he wrote for me on our very first dating Anniversary and maybe take a few lines from that - engrave it as a "quote" - and then just add something myself. Assuming they engrave kindles. And then I can just explain at dinner that I did this secretly because I didn't want a gift from him but because he's been so wonderful lately (I'm sure he'll know what I mean) I wanted to let him know how much I appreciate him. I think that would be ok (I don't think he'd feel guilty about not getting me anything if I do that). I hope not. 5 years.... god how time flies. Link to comment
