I want to have something sweet, but inexpensive waiting at the beach cottage when we get there next week. Snacks, momento, etc. Something small. The concierge can do it, but I need some suggestions. I would usually get something like an actual gift, but he doesn't want to spend too much more since the room is already so pricey. What would your SO's like for a 10 year anniversary that is small, more thoughtful than expensive?

Mmmm chocolate covered strawberries! Yum! Neither of us is big on cake, but I bet they could do something in a cookie or chocolate bar with our wedding date (we didn't have a ceremony, we eloped after living together ofr 5 years.)

Mine is on a silver kick so a pure silver coin would be awesome for him. Otherwise just me alone on a beach would be enough

We are bringing Steph, so no alone time for us. Maybe I will see what kind of little things they have for keepsakes.

I think just even his fav snacks would be nice ... Coffee, Doritos, and Oreos would be on my hubbys list :)

You can even go overboard with one thing to make it special. My son and his friends all went together and got the birthday friend a BIG bucket/tub of Mt Dew (his FAV) full to the brim with cans and 2 liters. It was really thoughtful and inexpensive. Another friend got like 20#s (maybe more) of gummy worms.

Anything little can be made into something BIG, and it shows that you thought about them.
