1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / My First Anniversary Ideas on: August 15, 2006 11:45:37 PM
My first anniversary with my boyfriend is a little over a month away... I already know that he's getting me XM satellite radio for my car, but he knows I don't have much money and has encouraged me to make him something (which I assured him I was going to do, anyway  Wink)

I've just barely started crafting for the occasion, but I'm so excited about my cheesy idea I had to share...

I want to really play up the concept of "year"... so my present will be 52 things for 52 wonderful weeks:

1 Love Coupon Book: 365 coupons! (I only have about 163 ideas so far, but I plan on making a few doubles that look different or some REALLY specific ones)
1 Story of JayBear&Jessacub Book (our cheesy names for each other)
1 Toy Felt JayBear
1 Toy Felt JessaCub
25 homemade oatmeal-raisin cookies, his fave, in heart shapes
20 homemade chocolates (with a tag that says "I love you more than chocolate")
1 small store-bought item or personalized item (perhaps I'll try my hand at screenprinting a tee or making pj pants)
1 storage box, decorated by moi, with matching and appropriate card
1 mix CD of 12 songs that remind me of us

I think this gift will be so sweet it's vomit-worthy... I'll update with pics if it turns out nicely.  Smiley
