One Year Anniversary - Male Equivalent of Flowers
hmm....I checked and no thread like this exists (as far as I'm aware....). Anyway my one year anniversary is coming up with the boyf and for the main gift I'm going to make him a wee album of pictures/quotes/things from our year together (yes, I know, I'm a total square ) I wanted to send him a wee something on the day (he lives in the UK and I'm in Canada at the mo). So I was wondering - what is the male equivalent of flowers? Even though I think it's fine to send a guy flowers, I don't think he's really into that. What is something you could send from a store or order online? I am really clueless.....

How about adopting an animal at a Zoo near him? I'd suggest a swan (because they mate for life ) but there are many other birds and animals that might be more meaningful for you/him. Here's a link to London Zoo's adoption page.

Another suggestion would be Adopt-A-Book program from the British Library. There are a lot of books/subjects to choose from any your money goes towards book conservation.

thanks for the tips thusfar! I thought about a watch but since we're both broke I just want something under 100 pounds.

usually for a one year anniversary, it seems to be custom to gift paper. so, maybe a book? or anything with paper.

Meg, maybe you could order him a nice dinner that would be delivered right when he gets home? I'm sure you can call any restaurant and just pay with credit card and have it delivered.

haha thats very tempting. seriously.

I thought about that jssy since we both love food and eating out and thats sort of how we bonded but I don't know what nice restaurants in London would do that sort of thing. I mean I just want a little something so that he knows I'm thinking of him on the day.....there's lots of good ideas though!

if you're still drawn by flowers, why not something minimalistic that is not so femenine?

something like this?


blueantstudio.blogspot.com

or maybe if this is your kind of humour, you can send him a chia pet i love those and i send them to my mom all the time.

^dont they have chia pets on ebay?

if he hates itunes then that shrinks the possibilities to nothing almost, i mean, you could have easily gotten him a personalized ipod nano video, which are cheap these days, or some itunes cards to download music... oh well

when my bf and i turned the big 5, I got him this white enamel picture frame with a picture of us that was taken ages ago, i had changed it to blk n white, and the frame had one of those recorders for messages. I fixed up some stuff along with a milkglass Aalto vase and calla lillies.

how gay
