Anniversaries are remarkable milestones in your life. The fulfilling feeling of being with your beloved for a long time is priceless. When you are happy with your significant other year after year, time seems to pass by really quickly.
This year, let’s make it special. Going to the same boring and fancy restaurants does not have that exceptional splendor. It gets a bit monotonous. Do not worry, there are numerous ways to rekindle the spark and commemorate your loving relationship.
Whether you are celebrating the silver jubilee of your relationship or your first anniversary, here are some creative ideas to have a great celebration.
Gifts That Last Long
Gift your partner something that will last long. You would want to give a present that also reflects your desire and contentment of an everlasting relationship.
An elegant piece of jewelry is a classic and can go a long way. However, if you want something out of the box, you can go for an Eternity Rose. All women love getting flowers, but on this special occasion, take it to another level by gifting her beautiful roses preserved in gold.
Alternatively, how about an extraordinary token of love that also eternalizes the memorable day your heart skipped a beat? You can get a customized star map of the night you fell head over heels for your spouse.
Basically, give your life partner something that they can always treasure and hold on to.
Surprise your partner by making breakfast for both of you.
You can make heart-shaped waffles or pancakes. You can also make French toast and drizzle it with a chocolate spread like Nutella.
Set the mood by playing music that both of you love.
Plan ahead and make handmade gifts for each other. It can be as simple as making a mixed playlist with your lover’s favorite songs. Or maybe a collage of your fond memories together.
You can also write a poem, redefining your affection for your dearest.
Take a Walk Down Memory Lane
Reminisce with the love of your life in all possible ways. Recreate your first date, your first kiss, and your first movie together. Maybe the first bar you went to together where you had your first dance.
Make it a day where you celebrate all the first stepping stones of your journey together.
You can also go to the same place where you both had your first trip together. You can also revisit the places you went for dates in the initial phase of the journey with your favorite person.
How about that art museum both of you went to where you nervously held your hands together for the first time? Or revisit that abandoned building that used to have concerts and where you met each other for the first time.
If you are married and celebrating your marriage anniversary, this tip is for you. On this notable day, you can have an intimate event with all your closest friends and family members where both of you renew your vows.
You can arrange a small party to relive the best day of your life.
If both of you are nature lovers or simply want to try something new, you can plan a hiking trip. It does not necessarily have to be laborious physical activity. You can also have a nice picnic by the lake in the park where you can both spend time leisurely.
Or you can have a second honeymoon in a cabin in the woods. If you are not a forest person, both of you can spend the day by the beach. You can also have a mini-vacation on a cozy island and relax with your sweetheart.
There might be some activities that both of you wanted to do together. It can be as adventurous as bungee jumping and paragliding. It can also be as simple as watching a movie marathon or going to that new hip food truck.
You can also spice things up in the bedroom by trying out the new trick both of you wanted to experiment with.
If you do not have anything on the bucket list, you can do the activities your better half always wanted to try. Make their simple wishes come true. Sign up for the salsa lessons your partner wanted to try.
Go to that avant-garde exhibition of abstract art your life companion always raved about. Get that shirt your S.O. loved but did not purchase. Maybe get that limited edition comic book your beloved had their eye on.
Give them something they always wanted or take them somewhere they wished to visit but never had the chance.
For instance, your wife fantasizes about being a pop singer and rocking her own concert. You can take her to the local karaoke bar and support her to sing in public. However, do not force her and push her too much.
You can turn the TV into karaoke and give her that comfort at home.
You can set a crowd cheering sound from an app like Spotify or YouTube. Create a concert-like ambiance by dimming the lights and decorating the house with string lights.
If both of you just want to relax and do nothing, do that. Embrace your lazy side and just lay back with your best friend in your arms. Enjoy each other’s company and order takeout from both of your favorite restaurants.
Binge on your favorite TV series together and snuggle under a warm blanket. This is also a great way to destress and take a break from the usual grind.
Cheers to Another Year
Having your best friend as your lover and life companion is the best feeling. You are lucky to have them in your life, and you want to let them know how much you appreciate them. A happy and loving relationship should always be cherished.
