The Obamas celebrate 20 years of marriage on October 3. It looks like the first couple will be postponing any romantic outings since their anniversary falls on the date of the first presidential debate, according to the Huffington Post. But that doesn’t mean they can’t celebrate with a thoughtful gift worthy of honoring two decades of love.
Presidential China Since china is the official gift for a 20th wedding anniversary, that is probably the gift of choice for the Obamas. At replacements.com you can purchase individual plates from presidential china collections including that of James Madison, Abraham Lincoln and James Monroe. All sell for about $50 or less.
His and Hers Coffee Mugs
Continuing the china theme, this set of his and hers coffee mugs from boldloft.com, $27, make drinking a cup of brew more romantic. One mug features a woman riding a bike trailing red hearts behind her and the second mug shows a man following behind picking up her hearts.
Obama Chia Pet
Few things can possibly be as satisfying in life as seeing yourself made into a Chia Pet. The special edition Barack Obama Chia Pet is on sale for $17.99 at Drugstore.com. With a little love and attention the planter will be fully grown within one to two weeks.
Family Tree Plate
Personalized gifts mean so much—especially when family is involved. This 10” Family Tree Plate from RustDesigns.com features the first generation at the foot of the tree with other family members listed on the branches. This heirloom gift is $110.
Not only is Vosges Chocolate a gourmet delight, it’s also based in Chicago which holds special meaning for the Obamas. The Grande Heart Exotic Truffle Collection, $95, includes 32 truffles that highlight flavors from cultures around the world packed in a lovely heart-shaped box.
