Ours is coming up in six weeks, what do I do? What do I buy? Is it paper?? We never do anything nice for each other and I don't like anything too mushy. We have two young children and nobody to babysit (unless just for an evening). Any ideas?

For our 1st wedding anniversary I got H a framed photo of us on our wedding day. Can't remember what we did on the day.
What about cooking him a nice meal with some wine once the kids are in bed?

For our 1st we went to Paris on Eurostar for the weekend. It was awful!
Traditionally the gift is paper for the 1st year. Lots of people have those word art framed picture things as presents. Maybe something like that?

I cook for him every day so unless he does a fancy meal that's out haha. A word art thingy he would never appreciate. The photo idea might be good as we never got an album sorted from our wedding. God that would take forever though plus if we had it shipped here we would be stung with customs charges due to the cost damn.

For our first i had a copy of my wedding speech printed onto paper to go in a frame above our bed (when we eventually get around to doing up our bedroom).
I got this lovely lady to do it http://www.rosierobins.com/. If i could work out how to paste in a picture from my pc then i would, but the insert thingies don't seem to work.
What about cinema tickets then, just something small but be nice to get out for the evening

Yep, paper. We went to Rome and it ws the most farcical weekend - everything that could go wrong did (short version!) I got H a framed front page of a newspaper type personalised gift thing that had our wedding anniversary as the headline and photos etc. That was nice xx

We got cinema tickets...
I couldn't give 2 hoots about celebrating our anniversary, but H won me over with talk of cinema, and an all you can eat Chinese buffet.

That sounds nice Estrellita, although definitely something I would appreciate rather than him! Cinema tickets might be good if there is a decent film showing in English, Chinese buffet hmm that would be amazing!

We were on holiday anyhow so didn't really celebrate it specifically. I think we went for a drink/meal a few days after the actual date. Present wise he bought me a Japanese hair slide thingy and I made him a paper cut taken from a wedding photo.
Other ideas for paper would be concert or theatre tickets, tickets for sports events, a book.

We went away for the weekend but understand that is not an option.
Another option I did for H's birthday I made vouchers, like 'this voucher entitles to you fab dins' and other said vouchers, bonus as it was not too expensive?
