    Well because we agreed not to buy anything I don't want to really spend more than like $20 so he doesn't feel bad that he didn't get me anything! I know you can't get much with that but just something small and personal (and preferably home made) would be nice!

    We once had a $15 budget for Valentines day. i bought (then) DP a small box and a small teddy bear to go inside it - around $10. Then cut out 100 hearts in pink and red paper and wrote down 100 reasons why I loved him.
    He loved it Still one of the best presents I have ever given him

    maybe a key ring with a pic of the two of you on your wedding day? I think I had one made up for around $9.
    I think experiences are a nice gift, as in doing something together where you are both enjoying yourselves like a short trip somewhere with a picnic. sometimes dh and i like to go for a drive to the beach at night, park the car and have fish and chip with the windows down so you can hear the ocean but you can't see it. its noice.

    When we were still students...

    I bought a big piece of cardboard from the newsagent. Then got some double sided tape and wrote "I <3 U" using his favourite funzise chocolate bars...

    Worked a treat.

    These ideas are awesome! Love the idea of the little cutout hearts, such a cute idea!!
    Can you get photo keyrings from Harvey Norman? I think that's the only place that do photo things around here!
    The candy bar idea is a good one too, his favorite candy is these sour strap things at the moment but I'm sure I could make it work haha!!

    You could make his fave meal. Or something that you don't make all the time but he likes. Every year I make home made lasagna coz it takes so long and hubby knows I put in effort so it's kinda like picking out te perfect prezzie.

    Default Anniversary ideas on tight budget!

    First anniversary is paper.

    I bought the sheet music to the song we did our first dance to (about $5 off a website) and put the first page in a nice frame.

    About $40 all up.

    DH loved it. It's hanging up in our lounge room and always gets lots of comments from guests
