Gift Suggestions to Make for your 2nd Anniversary
1. Gift basket – let’s face it, your gift basket should be filled with stuff that are related to your second anniversary. For example, you can look around for a variety of Cosmos seeds, along with a pair of cotton garden gloves, and a coupon on red paper (in the shape of a heart) expressing your willingness to help plant the seeds.
2. Plan a Staycation – I don’t know people who are not fond of traveling. However, it’s not always the best choice to go on a second honeymoon. Maybe you can’t take that much time off from work right now, or you may have just moved to a new home and the money is tight. Whatever the reason may be, staying home could be also a great choice. There are so many things you can plan to do at home – just two of you. So where’s the cotton? Upgrade your bed linens to a soft, luxurious new set and buy cotton towels, then use them together.
3. Take a Second Honeymoon – or … maybe it’s now the perfect time to go on a second honeymoon, especially if you didn’t have the chance to go on your dream vacation the first time around. Wow, think about it – your perfect vacation! You have endless possibilities. Just look around and decide where to go and what to do. You may want to go on a ski trip, or relax on the beach. If you plan far enough in advance, you can usually snap up some great travel deals. Just don’t forget your comfy cotton robes and buy some travel duffel bags.
And do not forget, whatever you choose to do, a personalized anniversary song will be the perfect final touch to your memorable day. Just find the name of your spouse and download the song. You can share it on Facebook, Whatasapp or burn it on a CD and play it in the evening while relaxing in the bed.
