Handmade “Personalized” Bouquet
Just dying to get crafty and still give the “traditional” gift of flowers? Take your bouquet up a notch by crafting a personalized one tailored to your partner’s favorite thing. Do they have preferred drink? Make a bouquet of mini bottles! A favorite lip gloss or nail polish? Go crazy with the sample sizes. Pretty much anything can be made into a bouquet by attaching them to some sticks and bundling them together. Extra points for beautiful presentation!
For a gift that just might have your partner crying from your thoughtfulness, put together a keepsake box of all the memories you have made together since you tied the knot. Add a personal touch on the lid such as your names, or a sweet sentiment. Then, fill it with small things that will mean a lot to both of you. The keys to a first home together, notes about how you feel, even snapshots of the two of you together. There are no rules here, so be creative!
Choose from any one of these unique gifts and create a memorable anniversary for you both.
