Dh and I will celebrate out 10th anniversity in July... I want to get him something special, and I have no clue what to get him. He isn't really into sports, or collecting things... I just want him to have something special. Any help would be fantastic!!

Sorry, dh and I never exchange gifts. We always just go to dinner and get really sweaty aftewards. Much more cheaper that way.

I have gotten my husband an Airman's Bible, you can look it up on Amazon.com ... he LOVED it.

I also got him personalized dogtags with a special message on it.

I've also gotten him a nice watch, which he can't even wear because of his job.

We have been doing this for about 3 years now... because we both ran out of ideas on what to get, but I just feel he needs something for this anniversity.

At Things Remembered in the mall. That link will take you to the tags I bought DH as one of his BMT graduation presents.


I put a very meaningful bible reference on one side ("Remember John 14:1") and then on the other side I wrote "You will always be my hero / Love, Ashley". Then I got a mini dogtag with it with the Air Force emblem on it.

First Paper/ Clocks
Second Cotton /China
Third Leather Crystal / Glass
Fourth Fruit / Flowers Appliances
Fifth Wood/Silverware
Sixth Candy / Iron Wood
Seventh Wool / Copper Desk Sets
Eighth Bronze / Pottery Linens / Lace
Ninth Pottery / Willow Leather

Eleventh Steel/Fashion Jewelry
Twelfth Silk-Linen/Pearls
Thirteenth Lace Textiles / Furs

I think I will get him a silver ID bracelet, nothing to flashy, but something he likes. I just don't know what to have engraved on it. I don't want just his name, but I don't want anything that will be tacky, any ideas? I wish I wouldn't have gotten him a watch, that would have been much easier! I bought him a Mavado watch for our 5th anniversery.

Thanks ladies for all of your help.
