It's been a few years since my 10th

Not sure if your husband has a barn or loves his garage like my
husband. He has all his tools in the perfect spot, pictures of
the fish he has caught on the walls softball bats hanging from the wall. He is a clean freak all his stuff is set in the perfect spot for him, this is his hangout.

I got the big huge box of all the pictures of us and our kids for the last
ten years and made a really cool collage and framed it in a frame that
would go well in his hang out. And I thanked him for the best 10 years
of my life, being a wonderful husband and father to our girls. For some
reason my husband loves simple gifts for him. Normally I don't go simple
but I did this time. He loved it I still walk in on him in is hang out and
he is looking at the collage. It did take time and probably 400 pictures later
but they on his wall and not in some box or in a book where we hardly ever
look.

I on the other hand was given, the most beautiful diamond ring I have
ever seen.

Not sure how we can top this on our 20th

Since his "hobbies" seem to be computers and working on the house and you don't want to get anything computer related them how about a gift cert to Home Depot so he can get a tool he might not have?

Sometimes when wives give men a restaurant gift certificate, it's under the premise that she's going too. However, if you give him a gift that's just for him, it may mean a lot more. I'd beg & plead with your kids' friends' moms so that they could be at sleepovers on your special night. Surprise him by cooking something he loves, turn out the phone & the lights, turn on his favorite tunes and eat by candlelight. Remind him why you married him. Tell him he really is your hero, and you are so proud of his hard work and how much he does to support his family. Pamper him.

A good and thorough backrub will also do wonders for a man's mood. Doesn't hurt to not wear the t-shirt and jeans you've been wearing all day. Get the kids out of the house and put clean sheets on the bed.

LOL! Not very romantic when you have green gunk coming out your nose and throat.........not just me. We didn't do anything but cuddle up on the coach under a blanket, watched t.v. and ordered in. We just weren't up health wise for anything else . We are going to go out and celebrate this weekend.....we're going to go to an Italian resturant in a town about 45 minutes away that gets rave reviews.

I ended up getting him computer stuff.......I figured thats his hobby and just because I cringe at walking into a computer store doesn't mean I should not get him a gift he'd love and use.

Thanks again everyone for your ideas and thanks Tex for the wishes.
