I got my husband a toy for his vintage toy collection. "Iron hide", what a great gift for him and exactly what he wanted.

My husband loves to cook, so I am thinking of getting a wooden cutting board with our monogram carved in the center, or a branding iron with his initials for branding steaks when he bar-b-ques.

Outside the Square

Each year we do 'gag' gifts. For our 6th anniversary I'm buying my hubby an iron lizard sculpture for the garden. My BFF wanted me to get him a ball chain!

My husband bought me an oak tree and we planted it together in our garden knowing that a symbol of our love will last long after we are gone. It brought a tear to my eye.

Pumping "Iron"!

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.
—Guest Janine


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.
—Guest Amy

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.
