We'll be married four years in July and try to follow the "traditional" gift ideas. if you're into that then the sencond year is cotton. DH got clothes and I asked for and received new bathroom towels. My mom was like "that's not what you get/ask for" but that's what I wanted.

What kinds of things is he into? Maybe a gift certificate to something he enjoys or maybe something you could could do together, as simple as the movies.

DH and I also follow the traditional gifts for our anniversary. I got him a cotton shirt and he got me a cotton themed gift basket with a cotton robe, fluffy towel, and cotton scented lotions and soap.

If you can't think of gift ideas, why not find someone to watch the kids and have a nice date night. I am sure both of you would enjoy the couple time. Go to a movie and get some dinner or maybe even just go for a nice walk and stop in a park or something and lay down a blanket and pop a bottle of wine or bubbly (if the park allows alcohol).

I'm of little help either. We just had our 5th anniversary last year, and I think I bought DH a carseat I love the themed ideas... And cotton is an easy one!

He loves music and I know there was a CD he was wanting but I can't think of what it was and don't want to ask lol.

We're hoping to go off for atleast one night this weekend, but if my mom can manage to watch both for two nights then were going to do that.

The man already has more clothes then me so I think clothes are out of the question lol

Our second is at the end of next month. Going with the cotton theme, dh is getting a new French cuff dress shirt, cotton lingerie for me to wear, and possibly a new bathrobe. China is the modern traditional gift... I looked at a couple of idea lists, but they were all pretty girly.

First & foremost -- HIRE A BABYSITTER!!!!!

You could rent a hotel suite for the night...



Maybe a romantic dinner for two...

Go see a movie...

Spoil him and yourself with a massage for two...

If he plays golf, surprise him with a membership to a golf club or some golf clubs (or both)... (Same or similar for any sport he may be interested in)

If there is some special sporting event he would like to see...get him tickets!...

Does he have a hobby? If so, get him some supplies for that hobby...

The most important thing -- have fun!

I just remembered... I did get something for DH for our anniversary! Our theme was wood, so I found a couple near things in Pinterest, made them, then put them in nice wood frames! One is a page with our marriage by the numbers thing (ie 5 years together, 3 dogs, 6 trips to sturgis, etc). And the other is three heart shaped maps, each highlighting a city - where we met, where we got married, where we live know and underneath each it says "met", "married", "love" (or something similar). If you want to go unique, try Pinterest for some cute homemade ideas!
