For myself. DH is fishing for hints of what to get me for our anniversary and I just don't know! For our first anniversary we got married. For our second we moved into a townhouse. This is the first year I've had to actually think of something and I'm drawing a blank the size of Texas. All I can think of is stuff we need around the house and new cookie sheets hardly seems like something anniversary worthy. I'd rather try to find a second gift for him than think of a single one for myself. Help!

how about a gift card to your favorite store maybe something like victoria secrets , how about a mother's ring which could incorporate the newest member, a spa day, a pedicure (gift card) and he watches the kids, this is all I could come up with for now

Thanks, I'll think about those. The ring he's already planning to get me in a few years after we're done having kids. The others might be nice though. I've never actually been to a spa and every time I've had extra spending money (even from my birthday or whatever) I've spent it on the kids. It'd be weird shopping for myself for a change.

I do the same, but sometimes it feels good to take some time for ourselves.

Geez, I haven't thought about real time for myself in so long... I figured it'd be another... oh... 18 years after the last baby is born before that'd happen.

Hmm i would definatly reccomend a spa day, there is really nothing like it when you come out, and it puts u in a good mood which reflects back to your kids you will be more rlaxed so you wont feel bad for doing something for yourself...

I'm not sure how I'd do at a spa. It sounds like there's a lot of touching involved and I don't really like to be touched. I've never been to a spa, never had my nails done, never even had my makeup done at the mall. Now that I think about it, maybe I'm weirder than I thought.

I think I might ask for a gift card to a kitchen store or something. I would LOVE to get some new stuff for the kitchen. Both of us had nothing when we moved in together so we just bought what we could at the time and it was all super cheap and it's all falling apart.

I've always wanted to go to a spa becuase I love massages but the idea makes me uncomfortable too... I don't want to get naked in front of these people, and you don't know if guys are going to be there... so I've never done it. But some alone time or maybe quality time together would be a good gift . Mini-vacation without the kids?

That would be really nice. I don't think I'm ready to leave the kids that long though. My oldest maybe, but DS has always been so sick and Elizabeth is so little I'd probably be stressed the whole time. It'd be great if we could take a family cruise somewhere, but it's a bit late for that. Maybe I'll put that on the to-do list for next year.
