With all the recent talk of the tragedy I thought that I would try to take your minds off of it a little bit. I am I”H celebrating my 15th wedding anniversary very soon and need HELP with meaningful present ideas for my wife. Please help ASAP!!!July 14, 2011 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #800117
“Traditional 15th wedding anniversary gifts have a theme of Crystal.
A contemporary or modern 15th anniversary gift has a theme of Watches.
The flowers associated with the 15th anniversary are Roses
This Anniversary does not have any Gemstones associated with it.”July 14, 2011 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #800118WolfishMusingsParticipant
The idea is not the cost, but the thought.
I’ve done a few anniversary gifts that were (to Eeees) memorable. Here’s an easy one (provided you have some time until the date):
Go through your wedding pictures and find a nice shot of her wedding bouquet. Have it recreated in silk flowers so that she will also have her wedding bouquet. I did this for our thirteenth anniversary.

A nice pen or keychain.July 14, 2011 6:33 pm at 6:33 pm #800120Derech HaMelechMember
I’m with Droid on this one.

How about writing a nice poem on a card.
From my experience, presents that take time yet have a minimal cost are more valuable than expensive gifts.
May you and your wife be zoche to have many more happy years together.
(And may the two of you enjoy reading this poem out loud at your 50th anniversary.)July 14, 2011 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #800122
true, it’s a little different than an anniversary, but tonight is my Hebrew birthday~ a BIG one. I most certainly would NOT want a pen or keychain, nor a nice poem! what I really want is a kosher cruise, nice jewelry, or a trip anywhere~ even to a hotel upstate. what I’m probably getting is nothing from my DH; from my children & grandchildren~ most probably flowers & a cake; plus the 2 young married couples are coming for Shabbos.
Goq~ you wrote exactly what I would have. 😉
Wolf~ very sweet & thoughtful. 🙂
outoftownjew~ Mazel Tov & many more happy, healthy ones together! 🙂July 14, 2011 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #800123DroidMember
always: Are you 50?July 14, 2011 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm #800124
60!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-O B’H, k’a’h, amushJuly 14, 2011 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #800125
Thank you for all the brachos. Please think of other things.July 14, 2011 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #800126MiddlePathParticipant
If you play an instrument, compose a song for her. Otherwise, I like Wolf’s idea.July 14, 2011 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #800127adorableParticipant
first of all, make sure to tell her how happy you are to be married to her….(and to be married all together)
other than that, I can’t tell you as I have no experienceJuly 14, 2011 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #800128Another nameParticipant
Why don’t you recreate a romantic or fun date that you had? It’s a good opportunity to reminisce and “be young” again.July 14, 2011 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #800129brotherofursParticipant
when me and my siblings didn’t know what to do for our parent’s
anniversary and we didn’t have much of our own money, we went
through alll the albums in the house and took out every pic of my
parents together and stuck them all over the kitchen with
different sayings that each of them say a lot and wrote happy
annniversary. When my parents came downstairs in the morning
they lovved it!July 14, 2011 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #800130oomisParticipant
Mazel tov to all those to whom this is applicable. I LOVED Wolf’s idea. Always, I wish you double the years you have already lived. (Since tonight is your Jewish birthday, tomorrow you might want to give out a few brachos to people in need of refuos, shidduchim, babies, parnasssah, etc. have I said too much?) Happy birthday in good health.July 14, 2011 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #800131learntorah1Member
You cant loose if you ask her what she wants…or can you?July 14, 2011 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #800132MiddlePathParticipant
adorable, what you suggested is for sure the most important thing to do..so imagine putting those words to an original song that he made for her- and you’ve got yourself a wonderful anniversary gift! (Assuming she appreciates music.)July 15, 2011 12:57 am at 12:57 am #800133
Mazel Tov!! Always that is quite a milestone may you live until 120July 15, 2011 1:37 am at 1:37 am #800134
thanks, Goq! Amen!
everyone says I don’t look it.. youthful in spirit… my rock ‘n roll keeps me young ;-DJuly 15, 2011 2:56 am at 2:56 am #800135WIYMember
I think (and hope) that after 15 years of marriage you should know your wife well enough to know what she likes. Think about things she has mentioned and pointed out or oohed and ahhed about.
If you can afford it either buy a nice piece of jewelry, maybe theres something she really wants like a certain type of earrings or the like…
If you have the money and the time, go on a vacation with her even for a weekend, spend a few days just the 2 of you.July 15, 2011 3:02 am at 3:02 am #800136
well informed indeed 😉July 15, 2011 3:20 am at 3:20 am #800137
write a beautiful thank you card for all she’s given you.
of course, thank Hashem as well (kapitel ??)
Happy Anniversary! Many more returns of the day!
And a Happy Birthday to Always! May you see tons of ???July 15, 2011 3:56 am at 3:56 am #800138
am yisrael chai~ thank you:) Amen!July 15, 2011 4:02 am at 4:02 am #800139
oops! selicha, oomis~ thank you 🙂 Amen! & that’s a gr8 idea.July 15, 2011 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #800140
as per oomis’ suggestion to give out brachas today, on my Hebrew birthday~
to all who need refuas, yeshuas, shidduchim, children (babies), parnassah, or whatever you need~
In this week’s Parshas Naso:
“Thus shall you bless the people of Israel. Say to them:
Hashem bless you and protect you!
Hashem deal kindly and graciously with you!
Hashem bestow His favor upon you and grant you peace!
Thus they shall link My name with the people of Israel, and I will bless them.”
May Hashem answer all your worthy tefillas!!July 15, 2011 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #800141adorableParticipant
the point is how you do ______ not what you do…. a simple night out with some ice cream can be cheap (if you cannot afford more than that) and have a better outcome/effect than a 10,000 watchJuly 15, 2011 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #800142
Or in your case, ?????? ?????!July 15, 2011 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #800143
am yisrael chai~ thank you. Amen!
public (private already given) apologies to my DH… he got me the most gorgeous b-day cake! 🙂 .
July 15, 2011 3:43 pm at 3:43 pm #800144
Thank you so much for the bracha always! have a good shabbosJuly 15, 2011 3:58 pm at 3:58 pm #800145
your welcome, Goq~ May all the best in life come your way!
Good Shabbos to you, & all, as well! 🙂July 15, 2011 4:25 pm at 4:25 pm #800146
outoftownjew~ apologies for hijacking your thread :/July 15, 2011 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #800147
You can steal it “always” but at least come up with better ideas.July 15, 2011 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm #800148
It has to be something “big” Think bigger please. Don’t worry about the money. My eishes chayil is worth it!!July 15, 2011 4:55 pm at 4:55 pm #800149
jewelry or a trip!! I stand firm! ..what’s not for her to like?! 😉July 15, 2011 5:00 pm at 5:00 pm #800150
for example– you can get her an ‘eternity ring’… a ring of diamonds all around. (google it, if you don’t know what it is).July 15, 2011 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #800151
“Think bigger please. Don’t worry about the money.”
Ok then, how about a yeshiva wing in her name? Tuition scholarships, day camp scholarships, food pantry, shelter, etc.July 15, 2011 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #800152
KMR retreat: choice of Canadian Rockies in July or Colorado Rockies in August. (I went in 2009 to the Vail, Co. one.. it was gr8. I actually would’ve preferred Canada but I won the trip, so…).July 15, 2011 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm #800153sms007Member
They have these necklaces that the charm is a gold circle with your monogram engraved and on the back they engrave your kids names. Or they have the circle with your monogram and your kids names engraved on different smaller circles.July 17, 2011 2:32 am at 2:32 am #800154
is having a timeout in the CR’s Cocoa Room for writing “In this week’s Parshas Naso”!! 🙁
…even my 7 y.o. grandson knew it’s Parshas Pinchas.
… it’s been a rough week 🙁July 17, 2011 5:08 am at 5:08 am #800155Another nameParticipant
outoftownjew, I’m so curious what you ended up doing…August 21, 2011 3:01 pm at 3:01 pm #800156
