    Hi everyone!!
    I need some ideas for a relatively inexpensive (but still thoughtful) first anniversary gift for my hubby!!! Does anyone have any suggestions I can't seem to think of anything to get or to make!

        Write him a love letter and stick it in a case of his favorite beer! That's paper, thoughtful, inexpensive, and guys love beer :)

          I like the way you think. There is also paper on the bottle label. Perfect.

          Aside from that awesome idea I have a few others you can get creative with.

          Tickets to a sports game or concert (ticket is paper)
          Gift Certificate (paper again. Karen got me a GC to a tattoo place for Christmas)
          Photo album with pictures of the two of you (I know I would like that a lot)

          There are so many ways to take off on the paper theme.

                He's a guy that is hard to buy for!!! He's not really into any sports (football, hockey, etc...), he likes tech-ie stuff, gadgets, computers, xbox, etc; he likes to build things - so I could get him a tool of some sort - but how romantic is a tool?? LOL

                Hmmmm....still thinking - I better hurry though - I've only got 2 weeks!!!!

                  I got Martin a top of the line drill last year for V-Day. You should have seen the expression on the face of the sales guy at Sears when I told him what it was for

                  Needless to say Martin loved it and uses it all the time.

                    well if he is a techy guy then gadgets are alwayyyys a big plus. i know i cant get enough out of it.. how about an ipod touch that has internet access and all sorts of cool things or if he already has a cool ipod get him one of those head set goggles for watching movies and videos in private. or maybe a cool video screen for the car or something like that.... those are all fairly afforadble these days.

                      I know a photo album was already mentioned, but if your into scrapbooking you could also do that. I made Steve one 2 years ago and he loved it.

                      Jean-Marcus already said it but I have an Ipod touch and it's Awesome! The internet part is great. Steve gave it to me for my B-Day last year and had the back laser engraved (at apple.com) It said, "Happy Birthday, Love Steve". Plus, you can pre-load pictures of the two of you into the photo album!
