Whether you combine a picnic with fishing or not, picnics can still be a great time.
Head off to a local park or another scenic spot with a blanket, some sandwiches, and your favorite beverages and WHAM — you are on a date! One of my favorite dates that Anne and I do is when we simply put on our walking shoes and go for a walk together.
Have you ever been just a couple days away from your wedding anniversary and trying to figure out what meaningful gift you can get…inexpensively? But have no fear, you (and I) never have to go through that again. Feel free to borrow these ideas and make them your own. Then I took a piece of paper and “aged” it with coffee and tea grounds.
Yesterday, we posed a simple question to Happy Wives Club members on our Facebook Community page: What is the most creative anniversary gift you (and/or your husband) has ever given for less than ? When it dried, I printed a poem I wrote on it, burned the edges to make it look OLD, rolled it up, tied it with a red ribbon, and put it in the bottle.
It gets us out for some fresh air, a little bit of exercise and a few laughs.
So, find out what is important to your spouse and create a date night around that. Let them know that you are looking to spend some Quality Time with them and wanting to invest in your relationship. For our first anniversary (which is traditionally the paper anniversary), I took sand from Lake Michigan (where my husband was born) and put it in an old bottle with a stopper top.He loved it and it still sits on his dresser by the bed! My husband took the batteries out of a wall clock, set it to the time we got married, and wrote a poem around the outside of it. 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 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). Wrote out the words of all the little ways he shows me love everyday and framed it… Treat your spouse to a 30-minute massage, followed by an enzyme facial (don’t attempt to do extractions…enzyme facial mask will do the trick and can be purchased anywhere for less than ), manicure and pedicure.My wife loves to go fishing with me (and I like having her along 🙂 ), but she doesn’t like to touch the bait or fish.Her excitement when she catches a fish is just off the charts until she realizes that she might have to actually touch her newly found friend.
