I especially like the scrap book idea. He will probably have something nice planned for you so you likely don't need to do a big spa day. If you still want to though, a couple's massage is really nice and probably about as much 'spa' as most men can handle ;)
Congrats on 2 years!

thanks miss chickie, but you've raised another question for me...is an anniversary not meant to be a planned thing between the couple...he said he has something planned but i also want to be a part of making it a special day.i guess its sweet of him,but im gna fl bad i ddnt have something planned like he does.so what could i do?i think im making a big deal out of it:)but i would like it to be memorable

If he is the sort that likes to plan things, then all you need to worry about is doing something thoughtful for him in return. Grand gestures are nice, but the thoughtful gifts are often the nicest. For my bday, my hubby bought me a huge professional makeup kit from Sephora because I had all of these individual makeup cases cluttering up the bathroom with different products. Now I have one place where they are all organized and I love it. From the side it doesn't seem like a romantic gift but to me it was because he noticed what a pain it was for me juggling all of those products!
You should discuss it up front. If he is planning a surprise for you let him do that but don't feel obligated to match his efforts money or 'wow factor' wise. Do something from the heart that you know he will appreciate. Otherwise it can feel like a tit for tat.
On the other hand, if he is not the planning sort, he will be only to pleased to let you take care of the details ;)
Oh - one more thing: Unless you are married or common law married I wouldn't go over the top with grand expensive gestures. Save the biggest bells and whistles for the one you spend your life with. If he is the one he'll get that all eventually anyway. Just my opinion.
Hope that helps!

happy anniversary tiffani:)
i actually agree with you miss chickie,i think maybe a couples massage (like tiffani) is ok because we aren't married--yet--so thank you for waking me up a little bit.a grand gesture is something i think i could save for something like a wedding anniversary:)
Thanks a mill laidies:)
