Any Ideas? ...

I see a heart in here, don't you?

This polaroid may seem kind of random but it's not. See, this Friday marks mine and Eric's 5th wedding anniversary and the traditional gift this year is wood. Wood signifies strength and a solidified relationship–I love that.

So I need your help ... I have some gift ideas in my head but I'm not totally sold on them. I thought it would be fun to hear any ideas, suggestions or stories you can share that might spark an idea in me. Who better to tap into than the most creative people I know? Thanks a mil and Eric, if you're reading this DO NOT read the comments. Love you:)

P.S. For those of you who actually know us, a skateboard is way too obvious and he has way too many already:)

A wooden picture frame.

A set of five wooden picture frames (one for a photo of each of you, and the fifth for a photo of all four of you).

A trip to the Redwoods forest.

A wooden ladder... reach new heights (of utility).

A 2' x 4'? The possibilities...

A wooden word, think Robert Indiana.

Tennis rackets.

Clogs, just kidding.

A chopping block... just as a reminder.

A tree house (Post Ranch Inn).

Happy 5-year anniversary in advance! As for a gift, hmm...what about some sort of day in the woods? A picnic, a hike, something of that sort?

How awesome are you guys?

Julia: I think they have those at Solo! Good one!

I like the tree idea ladies!

MaryBeth: He's not much of a beer drinker, but I kinda like it for myself:)

Heather, I like this too!

Yogi, you are brilliant & hilarious! I might have to do the clogs just to make him mad;)

Elizabeth said...

some of those wooden eyeglass frames would be super cool. Do they make them in a man style?

find some beach wood and widdle him something.

Holy Cow! This just might be the golden ticket... SERIOUSLY.
Epicurean Cutting Boards. (check them out here: ) I love these! i use these. You can get them at Williams Sonoma too. These boards are great. Their story is great! Check it out here... totally ties in to your guys's skateboard lives too
anyway, they are eco-consious, you can put them in the dishwasher, etc etc.

Good luck!
