: Help needed!

My first anniversary is coming up quick--Sunday, May 26. *I have no idea what to get or do for her. *I could use some ideas! *Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I wish I would have thought of doing this post 3 weeks ago. *Now it's crunch time.

for sure take her out for dinner the day before, have flowers delivered to her on her last day at work before your anniversary and let her friends tell her what a great guy she married. plant the seeds it works. *http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif

Dinner and flowers are a must! tell her in person how happy you are that you married her and how much she means to you. That should get you out of a few weeks of purgatory.. I'd stay away from expensive gifts or she'll come to expect them each year. Unless she like powertools and guns etc...lol

How about a day at a spa? That way she's away from you & you can go with your buddies http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sly.gif *http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/devil.gif

Thanks for the ideas so far.
She doesn't work; she just stays home all day with our 18 month old. *Maybe this will help with further suggestions?

Get her away from your 18-month old for a day to give her a break.......take her shopping or something.

It depends on the woman, but most I have come across prefer something you thought of and more personal that flowers. *Like my wife collects snow globes, so rather than flowers I will get her a new one for the collection or both flowers and a globe. *Its just that flowers and candy are generic nowadays. http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif *
Dinner is for sure and getting her some personal time away from the kid is a plus also. *Maybe let here have a night out with the "gals" or something.
Best of luck to ya and congrats on making throught the first year!!! http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/thumbs-up.gif *http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

I agree with the others. *Find a means of giving her time away from the toddler, preferrably leaving the child with the grandparents if possible.
My suggestion, nice romantic type dinner in one of those sappy low lit fancy dress joints in your area. *Even better if the place is where you used to go to for the "fancy" dates. Follow that with a long walk in one of the places that you used to walk along on those dates. *If possible (assuming that she doesn't get TOO worried about the toddler after a while), a night just to yourselves in one of those nice honeymooner type hotels. *Try to allude as little as possible of your plans.
I'd do the flowers just to keep her from thinking that you've forgotten (VERY bad).
Hope this helps.
rev, they let just about anybody in there.Just have your wallet full of money . *LOL
So whats it going to be perfx ?

*then have the flowers sent to your house just before the weekend.

DEFINATELY a little time away from the wee one, rent a nice hotel room for the night (make a stop at the dirty filthy store first) and a nice dinner reservation and hang the DO NOT DISTURB sign on the hotel room door.Room service for breakfast is a must.If I knew where you were from i might be able to suggest a hotel and resturant.If you can possibly get away on a week day instead you will get a superior hotel room for less $$$$$.Usually you can get a suite for a little more than a standard room. You can always order a romantic room service dinner as well. Personally I am not into the real mushy romance but like the nice hotels. Good food, good accomadations and alot of laughs.Good luck.
PS- if you are really broke send the toddler to the grandparents overnight, send her to get a manicure and clean the house and make dinner for her.
AND FELLAS FLOWERS ARE NICER WHEN YOU GET THEM FOR NO REASON!!!! Just FYI http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif *http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Congrads on the big number 1.
For my first one the wife and I went to Yellowstone snowmobiling for a week. *I think that is why we are still married after 17 years. *It was great. *We did have to wait until the winter time but that goes with out saying, but it sure was worth the wait. *Flowers are a must !!! *Going out for a nice dinner also can never hurt.
* Have a great day,
