October has always been one of my favorite months. I think it is one of the most beautiful with the brilliant fall colors and the cool crisp air. Thirteen years ago another reason was made for it to be my favorite month… I got married to my wonderful husband. Now, I’m not going to gush on and on, but I can’t believe its has been 13 years! In that time, we’ve had 2 children, numerous pets and lots of fun. We are also blessed with very supportive families who are very generous and have given us many wonderful gifts.
I know that gift giving can be stressful, so if are trying to come up with ideas for your favorite couple, here’s a good starting point!
If you are looking for something practical, restaurant gift cards are always appreciated. My husband enjoys Home Depot/Menards gift cards too. One practical gift I received was a new set of bathroom towels. After 10 years, it was nice to get a new, plush set!
One of my favorite gifts that we received was for our 12th anniversary. We were given concert tickets to see The Lumineers! It was wonderful… dinner out, no kids, great music… perfect to reconnect and just enjoy each other’s company.
This one I just got this year and am LOVING it! It is the wireless home speaker: Bose Soundlink Revolve. It was so easy to set up and the sound is just amazing (it comes in white too!).

Another favorite I like to get and give, are monogrammed items. I have a customized poster of our wedding dates and details that I love, but you could also do personalized trays, glassware, decorative address stampers or embossers. There are so many great ideas!
Of course it is always fun to give and get some little trinkets along the way too.
