Happy hump day friends!
If you were wondering what the heck we were doing in Atlanta two weekends ago, we were actually celebrating our 4 year wedding anniversary! Every year we pick a state that we have never been to and we go celebrate there! It’s such a fun tradition because it typically takes us to a place we probably wouldn’t have gone otherwise. This long weekend of celebrating/exploring is supposed to be our gift to eachother but if you have been following me for some time now, you know that I love buying people gifts so naturally I always surprise Brandon with just a little something extra each year!
On our first anniversary I started using the traditional anniversary gift calendar to get creative on what to get Brandon every month. Year 4 is silk and it ended up being my favorite because I got to incorporate our little guy!
Brandon wears ties all the time so I decided to buy some silk fabric to get some custom ties made for him and matching bow ties for our son! Omg, I thought that was the cutest idea ever…until I saw how much silk was LOL. Anyway, I still bought it and our alterations place actually made them for me! She was like “this is going to be really expensive, you should try buying them already made”. Well one, I was having the hardest time finding a tie and bow tie set. It was either 2 bow ties for Dad and son or 2 reg ties for Dad and son. Brandon won’t wear a bow tie and baby looks so cute in them so having them custom made is what I decided to do. How cute are these?!
I want to get a matching scarf made now because I’m jelly LOL. I’ll let my bank account recover first!
If your 4 year wedding anniversary is approaching, I am linking some other fun silk gift ideas below!
Sleep Mask – Gift a sleep mask, make your spouse breakfast in bed and tell them they can sleep in.
Silk robe- Gift a silk robe with a spa day scheduled!
Silk Pillow Cases & Sheets- He may not appreciate what a silk pillow case does for your hair and skin but I’m sure you can think of a way to get him excited about silk sheets!
Clothing- Buy each other clothing like one of these ties for him or a silk dress for her and enjoy each other at a nice dinner.
