Anniversaries are special occasion whether you are celebrating your first, fifth or fiftieth. After all, it is celebrating the ultimate vow of being together through thick and thin. The best way to commemorate your anniversary is by gifting your other half something personal and intimate. The thing with marriage is that you and your partner know each other very well, and it is truer with each passing year. You might be tempted to take the easy way and gift your better half that coveted piece of technology or the Louis Vuitton – word of advice – Don’t. You can file away those preferences for other occasions like birthdays or valentines.
The best anniversary gifts is something that both of you can share and enjoy. It’s not easy, it requires some amount of planning but it is totally worth it if you can create a Gift Registry or Wishlist. Here are a couple ideas of anniversary gifts that you could use in your own creative way to make your special day memorable.
Whisk him/her away:
Plan a spontaneous getaway, to a place that you will both enjoy. Try something quirky and fun like paragliding or trekking under the stars. You could also do a day trip – stroll around a new city or go away to some serene place and retreat into your own private world.
Way to Man or Woman’s heart is through the stomach. Whether it is a reservation at the most exciting restaurant, a home cooked meal or a picnic in the woods – a romantic meal trumps all.
Throw an anniversary bash
Why not include all your family and friends who have been part of your journey and have helped you to maintain and cherish the love that you share as a couple. Celebrate your love day with the people who shower you with love and affection.
Ice and Spice
Every marriage has moments when couples get too comfortable and lazy. Impromptu sex of the dating days is long forgotten. Take this opportunity to spice it up once again. Bring back the magic – send raunchy messages, leave notes, buy lingerie, role play – the options are endless.
There is nothing comparable the joy of sipping the best wine from around the world. Any celebration is incomplete without the right wine to go with it. Just stop thinking and really splurge on your favourite wine.
A love note
Love letters are not a piece of the bygone era, especially when it comes to anniversary gifts. There’s something genuine and heartfelt about a letter written with love. Write about what make your union special, Write about the little things that you cherish. Build on it each passing year – it will be the best possible gift for the both of you later in life when you can sit and go down memory lane over how your relationship has grown, matured and endured the test of time and tide.
