  • My stepdad got this pretty badass cucoo clock from Germany for their one year. He bought my mom a few watches so she could always match, she was lugging her old one with the botchy strap around. Uh yeah and they are weird so she got a dozen black roses.

  • You can find some really unique clocks on line. You can get one that would match pretty much any hobby/interest he has. For the paper, simply write him a love letter. Get some really nice paper and get it printed out or if there's a place (or someone you know) around you that does hand calligraphy, have it done that way.

    For my husband on our first anniversary, since he was in basic training, I simply sent him a plain card with a special letter. (Colored or fancy envelopes would get him in trouble, so I sent the card in a plain white envelope and didn't jazz it up in any way.)

  • Well I did that 'traditional" for about a year or two. It wears off. Having said that I saw a cool clock on line that had all the numbers on backwards. Or the one with all the numbers at the bottom--as if they had fallen down there.
    Good luck.
