I always knew that I wanted to get Seb a pocket watch – something that can be kept forever and passed down like a family heirloom – but I wanted his present to be something so much more special. That’s when I came up with the idea of a little gift box.
I started with just a plain box (from Hobbycraft) and then wrote on the top with a paint pen. I definitely think that, for things like this, simple is better. Plus, I’m obsessed with calligraphy writing so any excuse to practice!
I then filled the box with things that would help him on the wedding day!
Mini Disaronno – to give him Dutch courage
Socks – to stop him getting cold feet
Tissues – to dry his eyes
Ibruprofen – to help his head in the morning
Pocket watch – to make sure he’s on time
I tied each item in a bow with a little handwritten label & then layered between tissue paper.
Finishing the box of with a cream ribbon.
Of course, the main present was the pocket watch – gold as Seb is definitely a gold kind of man & very simple so that I could have it engraved.
“Anna & Sebastian, 4th November 2018, 2pm, until the end of time”
What did you get your other half on your wedding day?
Love, Anna xox
