  • Stainless steel BBQ tools – No BBQ is complete without a set of tools, as you don’t want him to burn his fingers
  • Anything booze related – Alcohol will always spice up the occasion, so consider a steel cocktail shaker, hip flask, ice bucket, or anything else that will make drinking more fun
  • Ever heard of Steel Pulse? – Buy him a CD from this famous UK roots reggae band

Turquoise gift for a hubby - anniversaryIt’s always a struggle finding new ideas for gifts, and after 11 years of anniversaries, birthdays, and Christmas, it’s hardly surprising you find yourself in the same position. It can be very easy to fall into the trap of buying your husband generic gifts. Which is why it’s great to have a theme to use for inspiration. For an 11th anniversary gift, as well as the traditional theme there is a modern theme that is fashion jewelry. Possibly not something your husband is going to be impressed with, which is why you should also consider the anniversary gemstone.

Turquoise has been a prized gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years. It has a unique blue hue that can range from a blue that is so pale it’s almost white, to sky blue and even a blue-green to a yellowish green. For thousands of years, many cultures have thought of turquoise as a holy stone, a bringer of good fortune, or used it as a talisman. And it can look stunning set in a ring, necklace, or tie pin.
