Bought my boyfriend 16 token things for his birthday in one big box. Was quite fun to do – did things from socks, to a cd. Each one had a meaning. Works for any age (although it does get more expensive 😉
My boyfriend and I agreed not to spend more than £10 on anniversary gifts, so I made him a home cooked meal – three courses and all. Was actually really nice and he really appreciated the effort… the important thing to know about me is that my usual idea of cooking involves a microwave
traditional Turkish idea – for my friends wedding my friends and I paid for a fantastic make-up artist. She really appreciated it because weddings are so expensive and she looked gorgeous! Lots of family members paid for something, rather than another toaster! So a really good way to help someone pay for the wedding
It is a bit off the wall but I bought my mum a memorable mobile phone number (along with some other presents!!) for her birthday I found a really good one on ebay which was along the lines of 0777588888x for £10 and she was really pleased
Periods in a calendar (such as years and months) are usually, though not necessarily, synchronized with the cycle of the sun or the moon. The most common type of pre-modern calendar was the lunisolar calendar, lunar calendar that compensates by adding an intercalary months to remain synchronised with the solar year over the long term. The calendar in most widespread use today is the Gregorian calendar, introduced in the 16th century as a modification of the Julian calendar, which was itself a modification of the ancient Roman calendar. The term calendar itself is taken from calendae, the term for the first day of the month in the Roman calendar, related to the verb calare “to call out”, referring to the “calling” of the new moon when it was first seen. Latin calendarium meant “account book, register” (as accounts were settled and debts were collected on the calends of each month). The Latin term was adopted in Old French as calendier and from there in Middle English as calender by the 13th century (the spelling calendar is early modern).
