Anniversary Gift Basket Ideas

This past weekend we celebrated my parent’s 25th Anniversary. Bestie and her new hubby were able to drive up to Maryland from Raleigh for the weekend.

The Happy Newly Weds

Bestie is a card and gift champion so I’ll share her cleaver idea with you.(She writes a ‘mean’ thank you note too!)
She looked up all the major traditional ‘yearly’ anniversary gifts and built a gift basket around them, too clever!
Becca's pretty card, she's a pro
She made the card with her new Cricut Mini, and also included an ‘explanation card’ linking each item to it’s year.

Becca & Eric's Clever Gift!
Year 1 : Paper : Cookbook
Year 5: Wood : Cutting Board
Year 10: Tin : Baking Tin
Year 15: Crystal : Bar Set
Year 20: China : Cupcake Boxes made in China (too funny!)
Year 25: Silver : Silver Serving Pieces
How clever is that?

The goods =)
Here it is all laid out with it’s basket.
