Nikki M: My husband and I do “found gifts” for one another. The idea is to give a gift that is something you already have, most likely with no real monetary value. You include a letter explaining the significance. The first year we did this, I gave him a rock I painted on vacation when I was a little girl because he is my rock and I always dreamed of finding my Prince Charming, which he really is for me. Last year, I have him an old key to our first house together, which we bought shortly after getting married, and which saw our oldest child come home from the hospital. It’s nice to do something without expense.
