this is for both males and females.

My darling husband and i have our FIRST anniversary comming up in November and it will take me a little while to set everything up but i would really like to do something for him to show him how much i love and appreciate him (above and beyond normal) so my question is...

ladies do you have any nice ideas for something i can do?

and gentlemen if your wife wanted to do something for you what is something that would really be WOW...

I dont want to spend too much money we just bought our home (a first for both of us) but i would like to do something special...

Also does anyone have any special gift ideas....

Thank you so much :-)

I'm not married or anything. How about you book a special table for dinner just for the two of you, and order his favorite foods. End of the day you can give him a nice gift.

Well have you asked him what he enjoys? What are his dislikes? Is he picky?

I agree with the previous posters.
It doesn't have to be expensive at all, as long as you spend quality time together in a joyful and relaxed atmosphere.

I remember hubby and I having picnics on the sitting room floor - nice food, a few laughs and a sense of togetherness and closeness.
Priceless! :statisfie

Like what has been said, you can try picnics, candlelight dinners, talking a walk somewhere spectacular, go away for the weekend, etc. That kind of thing.

I was just going to say that! Go up in a hot air balloon and have a picnic in the sky!

As for gifts... I have no idea. There isn't much to get guys really, unless they have a particular interest is something specific..

:sl:

Secluded area of the beach. Beautiful walk by the water during sunset. Candle-lit (delicious) dinner. Sit with each other near the water under the stars at night.

Or that. That would be pretty awesome!

Then get him pretty much anything. IMO, giving/doing something is so typical, giving/doing nothing is now special.

Another suggestion is if he likes sports, then buy him tickets to see his team play live :)

depends, just make it about both of you, something you can share and enjoy, a few laughs I'm sure are good, just be yourself, and have fun, the setting is really not the hardest thing to get once you start, it's getting to the mood & staying there that should be the focus IMO. if all else fails; snuggle closer, oh and not having something to speak about for a while is ok, just chew on the food :-, then say whatever is in your mind, be spontaneous, but don't over do it..

good luck ^_^

They are from the things of the Dunya, without any religious significance..which vary from culture to culture.

Lol. this might sound cheesy... but i think ill say it anyway... (oops)
...

how about you write him a letter... expressing how you feel to him.. and leave it somewhere for him purposely where you know he'll see it (maybe with the gift as well).. letters can mean so much.. (depends on the person though lol)

follow it up with dinner.. his favourite dish.. 3 course meal.. perfectly cooked.. a rose in between you.. and the most happy calming nasheeds playing in the background.. lol
