Maybe a book/video about something he might be interested in taking up sometime? Week idea but my dh has an idea about something he wants to possibly take up in two years time so got him the video and book telling him that way he had plenty of time to look into it properly and think about whether he really wanted to do it. I need ideas for 40th wedding anniversary present for my parents. Money is tight due to uncertain earnings/income. Sorry, don't mean to overtake your request for ideas alexsmum.
How about a membership to an organisation he is interested in? I have bought dh memberships to the NFT,(£14) & the Tate Modern. Or how about a subscription to a magazine. I bought a very good friend a subscription to 'The Chap' which went down a storm and cost about £7.
How about just planning a very romantic evening at home alone. Maybe with a candle lit dinner with something special to eat (one of dh's favorites). Dont know if your kids are young ones or even if you have kids but try and make some arrangements for babysitting. Try and do something different. Dont know if your into lingere but maybe you can purchase something I guess you could say sexy. Im sure hell love that. Make it a surprise. Sorry to get personal. I cant think of anything else at the moment.
if dh is at all sporty what about an unusual activity day. They're advertised in magazines and you can buy them in bigger branches of Boots, complete in a gift box. My dh wanted white water rafting!!He wanted to go to the Grand Canyon but had to make do with sunny Perthshire!
Hello, Hi (!), I've just remembered that we gave some v.dear friends a rose called 'Wedding Day@ for their 40th anniversary. It's a beautiful white scented climber and you can probably ask your local nursery/garden centre to organise it for you.
Thanks for all your ideas.The photo thing is such a great idea that I've done it in the past.I like the idea of the cufflinks too but I'm afraid I haven't enough time to organise it.
I'll have to keep thinking!! Thanks anyway.
Thanks for the ideas. I decided to book him for a male spa day in champneys as a treat, so I can stop fretting now! He's getting a full hour body massage, facial and a mud floatation as well as all their usual facilities, lunch and refreshments. Making me think I should maybe go in his place instead!
