Ahh…married life. Isn’t it great? I’ve been married for almost 6 years and I can’t decide if it feels a lot longer, or like it just happened yesterday. Now that we’ve got two kids, it’s much harder to keep the romance alive. Between work, household duties, and caring for those two little rugrats, both my husband and I are often exhausted and the time we have to spend together one-on-one is limited.
Whether you’ve been married for two months or 20 years, a fun way to rekindle some of that lost love is with products that remind you of the reason you fell in love to begin with. You can decorate your home or wear the products as a constant reminder of why you said “I Do.”
1. Mr. & Mrs. Owl Throw Pillow
I love this pillow because the “Mr. & Mrs.” element is subtle. It doesn’t say Mr. & Mrs. anywhere, but those cute little husband and wife owls get the point across. This would look totally cute on a bed, or even on the living room couch- somewhere that the kids can’t get their greasy little fingers all over it!
Get this Mr. & Mrs. Owl Throw Pillow at Kohl’s. Whooo knew that marriage could be so adorable?
2. Wifey Hubby Keychains
It’s the old ball & chain. Or rather, keychain. “Lock” in your love with this set of wifey & hubby interlocking keychains. Two literally become one. But you can also use them separately to maintain your own identity. This product is symbolic, practical and unique. Don’t you just love it?
Get yours over at CustomHempTreasures, where you’ll also find bracelets and other types of products for couples in love.
3. Mr. And Mrs. Plates
You’ve probably got everyday dishes that you use, and maybe some special china or fancier stuff for special occasions. You can break it out (but don’t break it) for a romantic anniversary dinner or you can get a special set of plates to use. I think these are so cute! They are simple and rustic looking, and are perfect for anniversary celebrations. You could also display them in your kitchen year round, so whenever you have those fights over who’s turn it is to unload the dishwasher, you can look up and remember that you’re part of a team.

4. Mr. & Mrs. Candle Holders
You don’t have to wait for your anniversary to get out the Mr. & Mrs. pieces of home decor. You can display these pretty candle holders on your fireplace mantle all year! The wooden set is handmade, and measures approximately 3 x 3 x 3 inches. Hey, we all know that size doesn’t matter, right?
Check these out on Etsy at Happy Wedding Art, where you might find more fun couples creations.
5. Wifey Hubby Cushion Covers Set
Claim your side of the bed with a pillow! If your spouse likes to hog the covers, at least you can mark your territory when they try to cross into it. Choose from natural or black, or maybe get one of each! This set also makes a great wedding gift for couples with a sense of humor.
You’ll find these fun cushion covers at notonthehighstreet.com. The site also sells cushion pads if you don’t have any that fit inside the covers.

6. Mrs. Bezel-Diamond Pendant Nacklace
Maybe you like showing off your marital status, but your husband isn’t much of a jewelry person. You can still get a little something for yourself! This seriously stylish “Mrs.” necklace can be worn to dress up your everyday attire, or you can save it for a special night out. It’s a great gift idea for a bridal shower, too, and something a bride-to-be could wear on her wedding day.

7. Wifey & Hubby Trucker Hats
Even if you’re not a trucker, you can sport a trucker hat. Wear one to a baseball game, or on a camping trip, or anywhere else that you need to hide that greasy, unwashed hair. Maybe you’re planning a romantic getaway in the mountains, or somewhere else that doesn’t require black tie attire. Put on your matching trucker hats to let the world know that you’re still crazy about one another.
These are available from BridalRave on Etsy.

8. Hubby Tee
If your hubby’s birthday is coming up, or you want to get him a little something cute “just because,” this shirt is a great choice! I think it is a fun way to show your mister how much he means to you, and how perfect a match the two of you are. It’s a practical piece of clothing that he can wear on casual days off, and whenever he wears it, he will (hopefully) think of you!
Grab one for your guy at Ily Couture, which has a fabulous selection of clothing for the entire family.
