I bought a jar and filled it with his favorite candy and wrapped each candy with a piece of paper that had a reason why I love him. On our first year anniversary, my husband gave me a photo album he had worked on the entire year to commemorate our first year together. One year we decided to get creative and set a $5 limit and whatever we did it had to fit in a noodle box. Husband made me a dozen roses out of my favorite candy (stuffed Twizzlers).

I went on Shutterfly and put a picture of us at our wedding on a shirt w/ the caption “Married My Best Friend” and our wedding date. In a small box, I placed inside a test pack w/ a positive pregnancy result… A six-pack of diet Coke and a gallon of chocolate ice cream — it was meaningful to the two of us, something no one else would think of giving me….expensive gifts just bought as a gift can’t hold a candle to something simple and inexpensive with loads of personal meaning. I made a poster of the different popular love teams (i.e tarzan & jane, mickey and minnie mouse) and in the middle I put our names in bolder, bigger letters and put it in a romantic frame I personally made.

You can get inspiration as well as actual "party" goods at thrift stores, garage sales, etc. A grouping of small candles, or tea lights in cheap, small, pretty glasses, jars or vintage saucers (mix & match looks great)....great decorations. for things already possessed..table cloths, fake flowers, glasses, urns, punch bowls, serving dishes, to borrow. You can "borrow" friends refrigerators, your church, maybe. If you know someone who plays guitar or can sing, maybe they can provide a couple of songs for entertainment. A very wealthy woman (boss of the baby's father) came to the party and told me as she left that it was the nicest baby shower she had ever been to..

Create a “Memory Box.” Things to put inside – prints of your photos together, some of the (smaller) gifts you’ve exchanged over the years, the cologne you used on your first date, the clutch she carried on the day you first kissed her, your wedding handkerchief, her wedding slippers … Even if you’ve (unfortunately) lost track of some of those (really old) objects, you can replace them with newer ones, only under one condition – they all should hold some special memories for both of you. Strew short romantic notes all over your home for her to find out. If craziness is not your thing, don’t hesitate to ask me for help with the messages. Choose a love quote (better still – create one), get it framed nicely, and gift her. Again, if you need help with the quote you know where to come. Create a playlist of songs which fit in with your story – starting from how you first met, to your first kiss to how you fell in love and got married.
