4) 6 Month Anniversary Card

Take whatever length of time you have been together and break it down into weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds. (Use google to figure out the numbers.) You can write it on a colorful page with markers, and this can then be framed if you so choose.

A really lovely idea is to cut out the shape of the number which represents the years that you have been together. Then, you can go to town making a collage of photos of you two together to fit into the number.

Why not buy a sports bag and fill it with some sports things? This is especially useful if your other half is a sporty type. Otherwise you could fill a bag with things of their favorite color, for example.
