What says romance like spending the day and night at a chic hotel in your city, or a quaint B&B in the country? If you’re the type of couple who’s never home at the same time, spend your anniversary on the couch with takeout, plenty of wine, and a series you both love on Netflix or Redbox.
This one will only work if you’re both open to ending up anywhere.
The tradition of giving gifts for a wedding anniversary extends back to medieval times.
You choose what happens when you win and vice-versa.
Bring along your favorite foods and head to your local park for a romantic picnic.
If you’re looking to spread the love, head to your local soup kitchen or another volunteering opportunity and spend your day together helping those in need.
You’ll both feel good about yourselves when you’re done. If your anniversary falls in the summer, head to a theme park and be kids for a day.
An anniversary with your significant other—whether it’s one year or 12—is always worth celebrating.
And in all honesty, figuring out fun things to do for said anniversary is half the fun.
In the earlier years of a marriage, it is often simple to think of a meaningful gift when two people tend to have plenty of things on their wish lists they want to purchase someday.
However, as the years go by and the assets build up, it becomes increasingly more difficult to think of an anniversary gift that will be treasured.
It is generally considered important that each wedding anniversary is celebrated in a memorable and meaningful way, because the anniversary is like an annual renewal of the commitment between two people.
This is one time of the year when time and effort needs to be invested into finding a suitable gift, and a gift that is romantic, unique, or symbolic in some special way for the couple.
