Anniversary ideas?

My husband and I will have been married for 13 years March 1. His birthday is also on March 7. Any ideas to combine the two without children?

  • Spend a weekend alone at home. If you have someone to watch the kids.

  • Can you get away for a night? Maybe do a hotel/casino/spa all in one.

  • You know what? You honestly don't have to do a thing. Saturday was our 45th wedding anniversary. The children and the grandchildren all took us out to eat on Friday night in the middle of the worst snow storm we've had in these parts in years. We had a lovely time just enjoying the babies and the older children. Each family gave us a card with a hand-written personal note. On Saturday, we spent the whole day just being together, reminiscing a bit about our wedding day when it also had come a big snow and was 9 below zero that night. We've gone on trips for our anniversary and celebrated in other ways, too, but none will be more memorable than this one. It's just about being together, looking back at the hard times and being able to see that they were some of the best, and looking forward to the years ahead with all the blessings that are yet to be. We have been allowed to live long enough to see what really matters.

  • Surprises are always fun, keep telling him you dont really know what to do for him for your anniversary, or say you dont have much planned. Up until the anniversary day, wake up before him to get ready, makeup/hair to look really nice for him, and leave him a note on your pillow telling him how much you love him and how great the past 13 years have been. Then when he gets up, take him out to eat somewhere for breakfast, or to eat soemwhere. Find some cute lingirie for that night, and maybe some play things, try extremerestraints.com or fredricksofhollywood.com. both cheap, and have great products. Spice up your day, do things you used to do before you were arried, or some of the things you could do before the kids, but can't now. There's tons of possibilities, but overall, just spend the day together, doing things the other likes to do instead of yourself. Have fun! and happy 13th anniversary, thats wonderful!

  • Do what you know he really likes. If you know he's been wanting you to wear something wear it. Or have a certain something then do it. Buy or make a nice meal and get someone to watch the kids if you can. If you can get a room to set it up away from home that would be extra special. It all depends on your budget and what amount you have.
