So I have been blessed with the best husband in the world!! We have had 13 married years together and two wonderful boys. I just couldn’t ask for anyone better!
Our oldest son’s birthday is two days and two years after we were married so it can be difficult planning for a birthday party and the anniversary. Sometimes I feel like I haven’t put as much energy into the anniversary, but God gave me this idea. I did a present for each year for that we have been married. Each present (most small and a couple of larger ones) were some of his favorite treats and such. I also wrapped each one and added the year and a note like
“I am so glad I haven’t driven you to drink…yet” for a bottle of root-beer wrapped in a paper bag of course.
“It’s always nice to know that year after year and day after day you will be back” for a Terminator movie.
“You light up my life” for a auto light thing he wanted.
I left gifts in the order in which my husband would go in the morning. 1st one in the closet. 2nd one in the bathroom, etc I spread them out through the day and even took a couple to his work.
It was a lot of fun. This could also work for a child’s birthday for every year they have been alive.
I hope that you enjoyed this idea. Please make sure to share your tips or thoughts.
