Double Whammy

One of my favorite pasttimes has been searching for the perfect gift. I've made my mom cry by surprising her with her repaired wedding ring, I've made my brother faint when I got him "A Bug's Life" for his sixth Christmas, and I've kidnapped Bryan on a Sunday afternoon and taken him to a surprise, birthday Mariner game. I love knowing that I can have a part in making someone's day better.
And so ensues the dillema.
June 5th through 10th encompasses Bryan's birthday and our 1st anniversary, which is a good thing, except for the gift department. It may be asking too much of my limited brain function to concoct the "perfect" gift twice within the span of five days. I've already used up the Mariners idea, and the creative idea (a scrapbook last year), and even the spiritual side (I gave him a new bible as a wedding gift). So what is left? If anyone out there has any great ideas, I am open for any suggestions. As I said, I love getting people the perfect gift...but is it so bad to get the almost perfect gift once in a while?
