I Need Your Help!

Mike and I have our third wedding anniversary coming up. The third year gift is leather. What on earth should I get him? He has belts. He doesn't wear a watch. He just got a new wallet. The only thing I can think of is a new golf glove... of course with a gift certificate for 18 holes tucked inside it :o) I want ideas, people!! You all are creative people... time to test your abilities!! We don't go overboard though, so keep cost in mind. Here's what we've done in the past:

1 year: Paper - I made him a mini scrapbook of pictures from our first year. I tucked several little gift certificates inside (GC to his favorite mexican restaurant next to the picture of us in Mexico). He got me a book by my favorite author.

2 year: Cotton - I got him a t-shirt with his favorite saying, "That's What She Said," on it. He got me a gift card to Kohl's where I bought I "Soul Mates" t-shirt and a cotton hat.

I've been searching Etsy and have found nothing. I just bought a really cool ring at the wine festival that I am going to get J and Taylor's initials engraved on. I was thinking I could get him one and put it in a little leather box. I mentioned how it would be cool for him to have a right hand ring with the girls' initials and he wasn't too hyped. He's not an accessory kind of guy. I also thought a docking station would be neat for his phone and iPod. He has all of these things randomly (in a neat order... come on, it's Mike!) setting on his night stand. BUT, do they make an iPod charger that plugs into the wall? We have one that plugs into the computer. So see, I need help. I have a little less than a month.

Speaking of gifts... Jaden and I got a sweet little treat in the mail from Tia and Miss Ellie for their top 5 blog give-away! They made us seriously, the BEST sugary snickerdoodle cookies I have ever tasted! WAAAAYYYY better that Cookie Cottage! Thanks so much girls!! Just an update on the blog gifts... they are coming along great! I still have a couple of people who haven't played by the rules though so they might not get their gift ;o) We'll see how nice I'm feeling though!

That's about it for this blog... Really though, I need anniversary gift ideas!! Help :o)

Wow! You sure are good. The only anniversary we followed was paper! I think the golf glove sounds like a great idea.

I got Josh a handmade leather journal from Etsy a couple of years ago. It was for his sketches, since he likes to draw. Not sure if Mike would be into having a journal, though. Also, this is the ipod charger (wall & car) I bought off Amazon a couple of months ago: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000EYRLXQ/ref=ox_ya_oh_product

Dirt cheap and works like a charm!

I don't know Mike, so I can't recommend, but I think that golf glove idea sounds like a great one!
