Before my husband and I got married we used to celebrate our anniversary every month on the 12th because we first started dating on the 12th of December 2009. This celebration would include gifts (every time) and surprisingly we came up with many many anniversary ideas. Now that we are married we obviously have our wedding anniversary to celebrate (and we do that on a monthly basis as well on the 25th). It is now the 12th of July 2011 so you can do the math and realise how many times we had had to come up with anniversary ideas in the last 19 months.

The 12th of every month has been less and less celebrated and the 25th has taken its place but the number 12 will always be at the back of my mind and when I go get something for dinner just now I will get him a chocolate or something. The point I am trying to make by giving you all this personal information is that I am steadily running out of anniversary ideas, especially when it comes to gifts.
Because of the fact that in a span of 15 months we gave each other 15 gifts (not including birthdays and Christmas), I am now at a loss as to what to give him. In hindsight, we should have slowed down the gift giving but I also know that we wanted to shower each other with gifts because we are both so happy to have found each other. I don’t regret it but now I have to really wrack my brain to think of gifts for him.
He is a musician so there are always musical things but I am not musical so I would have to do a great deal of snooping about and asking random music thing question in order to know what exactly he needs. He likes to read which makes a book a good option and socks always seem to be received well. As you can see I am at a bit of a loss but I also know that always end up surprising myself and finding something that I have never given him before and that doesn’t involve the Woolworths men’s underwear department.
Buying gifts for him is something I love doing because I know he doesn’t expect it and he would appreciate anything I gave him. At the end of the day it is just a small token of how much I love him and how much our relationship means to me. No gift could actually equal the love he gives me or show him how much I truly love him. The only gift that can do that is something I have in endless supply, something that you can’t buy and something that no one can ever have enough of…I am sure have figured it out (unless you have just broken up with someone and I am making you sick with my lovey dovey rant). It is of course LOVE – the one gift that keeps on giving.
