I mentioned a little while ago that Will and I celebrated our First Anniversary two weeks ago. He made us a nice dinner and we stayed up talking about all of the meaningful moments we've shared in the last year. I am so lucky that I decided to go out and meet up with some friends that night, and that Will decided to go meet with the same friends that night, and that we happened to sit next to one another.
Since Will had dinner under control I decided to make him something I felt was really meaningful. I spent the weeks leading up to our anniversary remembering all of the wonderful memories we'd made together in the year that we'd known each other.
I tore pieces of parchment and wrote all of my favorite times on them for us to read together! I tried dressing the jar up a little bit too! :)
There are so many cute gift ideas around the internet nowadays with Pinterest and craft blogs so I wanted to be sure to do something I hadn't already seen. I am happy with the way it turned out and my favorite part was sitting with Will reading the little slips to each other. It made for a really special evening.
What kinds of homemade gifts have you made for your loved ones on special days? Do you prefer to make or buy your gifts?
Wishing you a lovely little day!
