    I've actually done this before (multiple times), but it's not really in the budget right now. :-S

      Great feedback from this valentines day gift

      So I've got a month to find an anniversary gift for my wife. We'll have been married for 3 years.

      She's already got plenty of jewelry that she doesn't wear. She likes to receive "experience" gifts such as date nights or concerts, but I feel like an anniversary gift (or at least some portion of it) should have some sort of permanence to it so she can look at it and think back on the milestone.

      We're also in the midst of giving our home an enema. We're clearing out lots of clutter to make room for a pending baby. So whatever the gift is, it should preferably be small and easy to store.

      And lastly, my wife is leaving her job to care for this baby so we're short on funds. In a perfect world, the gift would be $50 or less, but I can go a little higher if it is worth it.

      To get the ball rolling, here are some general lines of thought:
      1.) something baby-related (since we're in that mode right now)
      2.) Etsy stuff (she loves that site)


      Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
      I recently gave my girlfriend a "Birchbox" subscription for Valentines day and got great feedback from everyone.

      She gets 5 items (nail polish, perfume sample, lotion, etc.) every month in a box.

      $10 / month

      Joe should try and get a mens sample one to review...

        It's a neat idea, but my wife has gotten hyper conscious about anything lotions or whatnot that she uses now that she's pregnant. She checks the labels on EVERYTHING and has ended up replacing all of her soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. There's a pretty good chance that she wouldn't even use it.

          Leather photo album filled with pictures from your three years together?

          I refuse to give up the leather idea until you choose one of my suggestions.

            For my third wedding anniversary I got my wife a pearl necklace (the real kind :-P!) She loves it. Its an expensive gift but no woman hates pearls so it's really safe.
