Now that you and your sweetie have shared six blissful months together, you'll want to commemorate the occasion with a memorable gift. To make the gift even more personal, a crafty gift is a heartfelt way to show your loved one how much you truly care, and how happy you are to celebrate 24 weeks together.
Put together a collection of romantic or upbeat photos to create an anniversary shadowbox to celebrate six months of wedding bliss. Purchase a frame in his favourite wood finish, and include photos of the two of you cooking together, enjoying your honeymoon, and even a few candid shots from your wedding reception. Add some sentimental phrases to the shadowbox, like quotes from your wedding vows, or words that describe what you feel concerning your marriage, like "togetherness" and "forever." It's also a good idea to present him with an additional gift, like a bouquet of flowers with cream or brown hues, which give the impression of stability and comfort, or a small jewellery piece like a tie pin or pair of cuff links.
If you crochet, present your boyfriend with a crocheted present that will always remind him of your six-month anniversary. A hat and scarf set in his favourite colour are thoughtful gifts; you can personalise the items by adding his monogram to the end of the scarf or the middle of the hat. Crocheted pot holder sets are ideal as an anniversary present if he loves to cook -- present the pot holders with a recipe book to make the gift complete. Or, create a crocheted coffee mug holder for your boyfriend if he enjoys drinking gourmet coffee in the morning, along with a gift card to his favourite coffee shop.
Potpourri and Candles
Set the scene for a romantic six-month anniversary by creating homemade potpourri for your wife. Use dried petals of her favourite blooms, along with dried fruit peels and cinnamon sticks to create potpourri with a pleasant scent that she'll be happy to feature in your bedroom or bathroom. Purchase a few small bottles of essential oils to add to the potpourri mixture to further customise the gift, and present it to her in a decorative glass dish. Include scented candles in the gift that pair well with the potpourri scent you've created, and give the presents to her in a basket filled with other relaxation items like bath salts of a bottle of sparkling wine for the two of you to toast this special occasion.
A greeting card that you've made by hand will show your girlfriend how much you care, and how happy you are to have spent six months with her. Purchase invitation stock paper in the colour she likes best, and line it with glitter. Use a calligraphy pen to neatly write the reasons you love her, and how elated you are to celebrate your six-month anniversary. Spritz some cologne on the card in the fragrance she loves for you to wear, and present the card with a bouquet of fresh flowers like tulips or daisies.
