- My husband is a strength and conditioning coach and big weight-lifter, so I made a chocolate peanut butter dumbbell by melting chocolate and peanut tater layers inside a dog bone cookie cutter and stretching the rounded edges of the bone to make them flat! it was a hit!

Candy! Candy! Candy!
- Well I wanted to surprise my husband with a weekend trip to Hershey, PA and go to the Hershey factory but had some unexpected repairs to pay for this year. So I'm getting him a bag of personalized m&m's in our wedding colors and found out that there were a few small candy factory/resturant places and ma and pop candy stores in the area I live in. So I'll take him to one of those stores and out to dinner.

Iron Beer Openner
- We had recently put in a new covered patio outside where we loved to entertain guests. I bought him a cast iron beer opener (one that screws into the post on the patio). A whole variety of different ones available online. He loved it! And it comes in handy when we entertain.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving
- My husband loves apricots, so I bought an apricot tree that he planted and he can enjoy the apricots from year after year.

- For my husband, I think he would love the traditional route with a set of new golf clubs ... Irons. I'll likely do a gift card in a wooden box so that he can go pick out the proper set for himself.

Chocolates of course!
- What else to give when the traditional gift is candy? Chocolates of course! I bought one of those heart-shaped boxes of chocolate at Valentine's day and hid it until our anniversary that year.
