Gift for Spouse for Vow Renewal

I would like to get my husband a small gift when we renew our vows next month. I have a few ideas of things I might like to get him but none of them are incredibly romantic or particularly special. What is a good idea of something that would be appropriate for this occasion?

The best gifts come from the heart – and the mind! Think about your husband, your life and your relationship. Select something you think would make a great keepsake. Maybe a photo album with select pictures of the two of you from the time you first met and then every year until today. Same idea can be done with a DVD slideshow. Maybe a book of romantic love poems or a CD of your favorite love songs.

Hope these ideas have sparked your imagination and creativity.

I completely agree. The best gifts are based on what we know about a person. So, be very observant.

Yeah, I figured as much – I’ve done that for all birthdays and Christmases so far so I’m sure I’ll be able to think of something ( though I shouldn’t have used up the romantic meaningful gifts on those holidays! j/k :)) Thank you!

Thank you for your advice on vow renewal etiquette. This is just going to be a small “event-” just me, my husband, and my parents, at a chapel (and we’re calling the whole thing a vow renewal, nothing wedding-oriented.) We’ll just be taking my parents out to dinner at a restaurant afterwards; this isn’t really a whole big to-do, it’s just for me and my husband and my parents happen to be sharing part of it with us. 🙂

Here are more suggestions:

-a “Why I love you” and “What I appreciate most about you” list – name and describe times and incidents when you felt he was thoughtful, kind and caring / when you felt most loved and appreciated /things that you truly appreciate about him.

– a spa massage treatment for two

– a gift certificate for a romantic weekend at a B & B

You sound like a loving romantic woman. Your husband is blessed, and so are you.
