Anniversary gift ideas?
I hope this is the right thread,
But I need help with our upcoming 4 year anniversary, its on dec 15th and Im running out of ideas. Hubby has everything he wants (except for an aston martin, but i cant afford to buy him one yet)- so dont ask me what he needs- we are having our first baby the end of february..so i want this anniversary to be extra special.,..

Any ideas?

I was going to suggest a Bentley:p
what's your budget? A nice watch?
or a very nice espresso machine? (considering the new born will make you sleep less)
also there is a very nice cell phone...I forget the name but that's very nice.

hmm let me see
I did surprise him 2 weeks ago and we went on a trip to the seychelles- he had no idea up to the airport check in counter- so thats done
He's not into coffee- and I did consider a watch but it just seems soo common- its like if he gets me jewelery- ya its nice but there isnt much thought into it...
anything unique or special anyone of you have done to their partners?

Maybe track down an autograph of his childhood hero? My dad almost cried when I gave him a signed photo of Mickey Mantle........

uniq. Does he wear any jewelry? Maybe some sort of special ring? Even if a watch is common, maybe have a lovely inscription on it? A really lovely meal/day out? tough! Since he has everything he wants I think finding something less material and something focused more around memories might be nicer.....

does he like wine? maybe a really nice vintage from the year you meet combined with something produced this year that will age well and you can share down the road?

edit: another thought! obviously he likes star wars so maybe something related to that?

Well Hans was played by Harrison Ford, so maybe his auto? And even better a photo of him as Solo if you can find it.

ok well he said he was over star treck- he did mention this tshirt that was big in japan a few years ago that had to do with star wars and che guevara (sp) dont ask-
Good news is
I bought him two things today
this phone that takes dual sim cards at the same time i found it at colette, and i got him a goyard mini wheelie in black with natural leather lining- its perfect for him when he travels for his laptop and all his carry ons- and easier on his back...
so these are two very nice things that i got and that eh needs
bad news is i already told him about them hahaaaaaaaaa
ill look for something special to add to the gifts

Jaeger-LeCoultre has some reverso models that can be engraved on the back (with a picture, for instance). I believe that there are some Jaeger recommended artists in Europe that you can locate and have the watch engraved. That will be really special.
