Our 15th anniversary is coming up next week. I don't know what to get or do for him. Most of ideas on here seem more for women. I love all the romanitc ideas for me, but he's not a real romantic kinda guy. Please men, give me some ideas of things you'd like.
Thanks

Can you tell us about your H? What kind of things might he like? What kind of things did you do when you were dating?

In general, I think most of us men like RC (Recreational Companionship) ideas - tickets to a sporting event or something that gets the adrenaline flowing (white water rafting, drive a race car, skydiving, etc). Maybe you could rent an exotic sportscar or vintage muscle car and be his 'dream date'?

Yesterday was our 9th anniversary. I bought 9 cards (1 for each year) and placed them where he would get them spread throughout his day. Some were fancy, some plain, one even said "I'm sorry". I took the time to write short personal messages in some of the cards. I knew H would be busy and going several places during the day. The first was taped to his bathroom mirror. The last was on his pillow that night. I placed some at work and even got other people to hand him cards during the day.

On our anniversary this year I gave my husband a love letter. Then, together, we planned our wedding renewal trip to the carribean. We're leaving in 33 days.

I second the recreational companionship idea. How about a concert? It might mean a lot to him if you do something with him you have refused to do in the past, like going to a sports event. We guys love it when our spouses take an interest in our passtimes.
