Hi group. Hope you can help me. My husband and I will be celebrating our anniversary soon. But I don't know what to get him for a gift. What do men really want to receive? Something practical or something sentimental? Any gift ideas will be appreciated.

It depends what you want. If it is for him, make it something practical, related to his hobbies or interests. However if it is related to the celebration of the relationship, make it something sentimental and relating to your time together good luck keep on posting

Hi, thanks. Let's see, his interests are cars and computers... both I can't afford. So I'll stick with sentimental.lol I tell you, it really is hard buying gifts for men, even for little boys. The choices are so limited.

sis I think something personal would be highly appreciated by your husband..how about a scrapbook you can make to put all the memories you can put in it.. or if u want material things,are u a member at multiply?why dont u go there..there are a lot of gifts for men there.. it always depend on the type of things that your husband really enjoys in..

Hey that is a nice idea too. And I can even ask my kids to pitch in. Thanks. And about Multiply, I'm not a member. Actually, this is the first time I've heard it. But I'll ask around about it. Thanks again.

Speaking personally, I enjoy both the practical and the sentimental. The seventh anniversary traditionally is celebrated with a gift of wool or copper. If your husband likes to cook, get him a set of copper pots. If you don't want to spend that much, how about a nice copper money clip or spare change box for his bedside table. The great thing about copper is that it is easy to get engraved, so even something that is practical can become sentimental if you personalize it with an inscription. Wool is easy -- buy clothes that he'll look good in. And TELL him how good he looks in them. Whether its slacks, a sweater, or even boxer shorts! The modern gift for the seventh anniversary is a desk set. Personally, I think that's dull. But maybe your husband will love something like that. And again, you can get it engraved. Hope this helps. PS: Me, I'm happy with power tools. They're practical, and I can get quite sentimental over them! :)

Thank you for those wonderful gift ideas. They were a lot of help. How I wish you could have seen my eyes lit up with your reply. =) And the power tools... that would be a great gift for me(I'm such a cheapskate at hiring help to fix up the house, I'd rather do it myself). I think I'll give my hubby a hint about that.lol Again, thanks.
