I can’t believe it, this month my husband and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary! Every May as our wedding anniversary comes around, I get worried. What do you give the best husband ever for your anniversary? In the past, we have enjoyed vacations (or staycations) together or skipped gifts and spent the money on home improvement projects. But this year I wanted to give my husband something special. And since I love to DIY, I wanted to be able to make something for him too. What I came up with is the perfect anniversary gifts for him.
My husband is the most supportive man I could have asked for. Anyone that puts up with my crazy DIYing must be amazing. He never complains when I drag him to the home improvement store on his day off to help me buy the heavy stuff. Then just smiles as he unloads it all again at home. I wanted to give him an anniversary gift that said thank you for always being there for me.
After a long day at work, he always comes home and empties his pockets. He unloads his cell phone, earbuds, and pocket change onto the nightstand. Where it sits until the next day when he loads his pockets again. He really needed a place to unload the day. Someplace to catch all his things until he needed them again. Something like a beautiful nightstand tray, that I could DIY for him for our anniversary this year.
Then to make it even better, I added this amazing wood watch from Jord. These watches are so beautiful. Each one is a work of art. And I love that the wood in the watch will make him think of his crazy DIY wife every time he wears it!
I absolutely fell in love with the Dover series Zebrawood & Dark Sandalwood watch and knew it would be perfect for my husband. The face of the watch has all the gears visible. It’s a beautiful contrast to the light and dark wood watch band. And for the man who loves to see how things are made, having the gears in the open means he can just enjoy watching it without having to take it apart 🙂
So this year I think I totally nailed the anniversary gift. My husband will be able to use his wood watch and nightstand tray everyday and hopefully will still be using them when we celebrate another 13 years!
