For our 3rd anniversary in January, Kevin and I decided not to spend that much on each other. With Christmas, birthdays, and anniversary all very close together, it can get pretty expensive and hard to come up with good gift ideas. This last anniversary, I was inspired by a Pinterest post and modified it to make it more my own. Here’s what I made:
It basically is a cute jar with colorful pieces of paper in it. On the papers, I wrote down my favorite quotes about love, what I love about Kevin, my favorite memories of us together, and what I look forward to in the future together. While it was a gift for Kevin, I feel like it became a gift for me too. As I wrote on all the slips of paper, I was able to look back and recognize how special our relationship has been, and continues to be, to me. You could easily make a jar and modify it for a good friend, sibling, or parent. I think it really is a special gift that shows the person how much you care about them.
If you want to make your own, all you will need is: a jar of some kind, letter stickers (if you want your initials on it), printed paper, and a pen. That’s it.
