Anniversary help!!!

Dh & I will be celebrating our 4 yr anniversary March 13. We had talked about going away for the weekend somewhere close to home & leaving our 3 lo with my parents. Now dh says no when I ask about going somewhere. I know he isn't planning anything behind my back. It's not his thing to surprise me. When I asked last night about going somewhere he said "we'll see". He acts like we have lots of time to plan something. So I figure we'll end up spending the weekend at home. Financially we can't do much so I'm fine with time at home alone. Just don't want to end up sitting alone while he watches tv & plays games on the iPod.
I'm trying to figure out a nice gift for him. He doesn't hunt, fish, no hobbies. I have no clue what to get him or what to plan as a gift. Help!!!

 Don't get him a gift. Take that money and put it towards a couples activity. I'm fine with anniversaries at home but if he ignored me during it I'd probably stab him in the eye. Anyway, take the gift money and do dinner and some sort of activity in your town.

I thought about doing something close to home but we live in a very very small town. The town close to us have nothing. If we drive an hr or more we can go to Evansville In, bowling green ky, 2 he we could go to Nashville tn. I thought about going to land between the lakes in ky & staying at a b&b or getting a little cabin. But can't get him to say anything either way. I don't even know yet if he'll take off from work for our anniversary.

Get your parents to get the kids from Friday evening to Sunday evening. Plan Friday night in movie on the couch,some sexy snacks. Saturday morning have breakfast in bed,that afternoon go sight-see,get out of the house. Saturday evening/night maybe a nice inexpensive dinner? Or get some wine order pizza and stay in. Sunday morning repeat breakfast in bed!

I would say get yourself some realy nice Lingerie and you can take sexy pictures for your Hubby. i am sure he would love it. and to add to it you could  also get him a nice watch or nice wrist jewlery band.

Our anniversary typically involves dinner or lunch, a movie, window shopping, and ice cream.   Sometimes we exchange gifts, sometimes we don't.  It's more likely to find something we know the other would love at a different time of year and say "happy early (or late) anniversary"

 We stayed at the Hampton Inn at Evansville a few months ago for $70.  Great breakfast.  Lots to do in Evansville including the casino.  Get busy planning something.

 I am all about the date night in! I agree that you should try to get family or friends to take the kids for the weekend so you two have the house all to yourselves. There's SO much you can do. Candle lit dinners, dancing, watching movies, play games. If you have a gaming console that supports this, you could even go bowling, skiiing, etc! But make sure you actually plan things out, otherwise you will end up sitting on the couch watching him play and trying to get him to contribute to the evening.
