My fourth wedding anniversary is coming up in a few weeks, so I am trying to brainstorm some gift ideas (candlesticks always make a nice gift). So, naturally I turned to the good ol' internets for some help. Imagine my surprise when I found out the fourth wedding anniversary is the fruit anniversary.
Seriously? I am supposed to give my wife a banana for our anniversary (sexual innuendo NOT intended). I know it is the thought that counts, but I'm pretty sure I am going to be sleeping on the lawn if I give my wife a fruit basket. Whoever decided upon these anniversary themes is clearly an idiot.
Worst. Anniversary gift. Ever.
So, help a brother out and leave some good fruit-based gift ideas in the comment section.
Here are a few other topics for you to discuss amongst yourselves:
- So, is it wrong of me to root for Jake Locker to be a greasefire at QB for the Titans so that he can join the Angel farm system immediately?
- OK, I know this is supposed to be open discussion time, but if anyone brings up the royal wedding, they get banned. No questions asked.
- Looks like no more hockey talk will take place in this space. Both Southern California teams got knocked out in the first round. Stanely Cup FAIL.
Or just feel free to bring up a non-Angels topic of your own. I don't really care (as long as you keep it clean) because it's Friday.
I'd suggest having a fruit basket waiting in your stateroom for that Mexico cruise. As it's your anniversary, I'd also suggest staying onboard the entire time. Seriously, don't get off the ship. Being kidnapped isn't the best anniversary memory.
Do they still play hockey in the U.S.? That's so cute.
I'd go with something shiny as your normal gift, but make sure you incorporate fruit into desert. Strawberries dipped in chocolate is the sort of desert you eat before getting down to business. Women eat it because it satisfies their sweet tooth without making them feel unhealthy or fat and its been ingrained into the American psyche through motion picture that this is a sensual meal that must be followed up by a little husband and wife time.
Also, use your imagination with dinner, if you go out to eat some place, have them bring out a bowl of fruit with candles on top, sort of like they would for a birthday with a cake, then you explain how the 4th anniversary is the fruit one. They aren't GREAT ideas, but I don't feel like you'd be laughed at for trying them.
