What do I get my bf for our 2 year dating anniversary? I don't want to just give him something generic and sports related because that is just lame. Any creative (and low cost; c'mon I am a poor grad student here) ideas out there? TIA.

I don't know if this is something you or he would like but I'm doing it when ours comes up. On snapfish and prob other photo sites you can make a calander and put all sorts of pics and captions. My mom makes my sisters and I one every Christmas and they always turn out great. Functional thoughtful and reasonably priced. :) good luck


Oh... I just thought of another thing lol... Idk if its possible for you but here there is a winery that will turn any photo you bring in into a wine bottle lable. Its a pretty neat idea. My sis did it for her bf and turned out great. (assuming you like wine) sorry if these are way off!

Neither of us drink, so that would be probably not a good idea lol, but the first one sounds fun! I'll definitely look into that!

someone gave me a really good idea during valentine's day. www.lovebookonline.com You can get one that's $25. You basically create the most adorable book for your loved one! I ordered one for my love, and it sits on our coffee table. I catch him reading it a lot.

Yep!!

The photo calender is my bf's gift from his god son every christmas and he lOVEs it! I just hit the one year mark and my bf got me a digital picture frame, which I thought was really sweet. But then he turned it on...he had already filled it with every single picture of the two of us. It was the sweetest gift!!!!

YAY! I'm so glad you liked the idea! A fellow member here gave me the idea, I wanted to thank her, but her privacy settings didn't let me send her a PM. :( I'm sure he will love it! My sister got one for her b/f and he actually cried! Let us know if he liked it!

Omg the lovebook is too cute for words. It reminds me of what I made for my guy on our 2 years; I made a scrapbook that had a story in it; took me 2 whole days no sleeping at all; pulled an all nighter for my honey.

That'll be really cute.

I notice you're in NJ. How far of a drive is it for you two to get to Wash. DC? There are several museums free admission. If you had some bucks for a hotel night you could book a weekend and see some sites. There's plenty of free things to see. You'd just need hotel, food, and gas. If you get a hotel with a kitchen you can even bring your own food to cut down on restaurant costs. Fill up on the breakfast (Holiday Inn Express) and that's more money saved right there.
