    Default Anniversary presents

    It's our 2nd anniversary today (12 years together, though) and this morning DH gave me 2 technic Lego models and some neon hairspray. We are also going fishing for the day (soon).

    DH said to me "Don't tell anyone what I gave you!"
    He thinks Lego is a lame anniversary present. I however, think it's awesome! (I love Lego).
    He also thinks other people will think he's a butthole for 'making me go fishing on our anniversary', even though I suggested that we go.

    Tell me, is this a strange anniversary present/celebration? What do you do for your anniversaries?

    We are 3 years married and 10 together.
    We celebrated our first wedding anniversary by going out for the night but don't actually do anything now....
    I think Lego is awesome too!

    It's our first wedding anniversary soon.

    DH got me two massage vouchers, I got him a nesspresso machine.

    I hate coffee, think a machine is a waste, but he will love it.
    And that's the point, doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, it's about what the person getting the gift thinks.

    He has obviously thought about you, and you love Lego, so to me... That's the perfect gift.

    I got my OH another wooden elephant (ongoing joke), a pack of 'joke a day' cards (cause he lives terrible jokes!) and we went for a walk and picnic with the dog. He got me a paper decorative umbrella cause he knew I wanted to go traditional with the whole paper for first anniversary lol I think Lego is an awesome present! Who cares what other people think as long as you love it!

    No way is that lame! I'd LOVE to go fishing! DF and I used to go fishing while DD1 was in daycare though we never caught any real fish (I caught a crab once though!) but it was so much fun and we did a lot of bonding!

    I actually ask for Lego for presents and only my mum so far has taken me seriously and bought it for me. I also asked for a worm farm as a house warming present and no one took me seriously. Why should we be expected to get 'grown up presents' all the time when sometimes thats a bit boring. I think your DH is awesome!

    Just gave my hubby a 2005 West Tigers jersey as he's been going on about it ever since we've been together (2 years). Took me 3 weeks to find someone selling it but his reaction was definitely worth it.
    And no I don't think your anniversary present is weird. I love Lego too Just not a fan when I step on it...

    I think fishing sounds great! DP and I have only had 2 anniversary's so far but both of them resulted in a BBQ. This year I would like to do something different, but no doubt it will still be something like fishing, camping etc etc. I love that sort of stuff but it will be something DD can come along to as well.

    As for presents that is a cool present!

    DP and I haven't had money to exchange gifts in the past however if we able to gifts I know my DP would buy me something either car related (as in something for my car he knows I would like) or art related and I would get him something fishing related or maybe some games for the ps3 or something he might like.
