Anniversaries are considered milestones in every relationship that is why it is meant to be celebrated. The celebrations do not need to be lavish and expensive. It can be simple but memorable. What is important is that you take some time off of your busy day and spend it with the one who matters the most: your partner. Hence, here are some great ideas on what to do on your anniversary:
Staycation is a popular trend nowadays because of the time constraint in our busy lives, travelling to distant places is reserved when time banks can be spent. A couple of days spent in a nearby bed and breakfast should do the trick. And while you are at it, book a relaxing spa massage from a local spa that provides services for couples.
Enjoy the Outdoors
Picnics are always fun! Play games and initiate a friendly competition. Pack up some finger foods and spend your time under the shade of a tree, reminiscing about the moments in your relationship. Time may pass you by so hopefully, there is a drive-in movie offered in the park during the evening. But what if your anniversary falls during the winter? You can still enjoy the outdoors by ice skating or snowboarding.
Camping is another fabulous way to enjoy the outdoors. For sure, a change in scenery is always inviting. Camping is one of the best ways to enjoy some time alone together. Pitch up a tent by the lake and grill some barbeque. Marshmallows toasted on bonfire sounds perfect too! Nonetheless, you will surely enjoy nature and all its glory from dusk until dawn.
You can also go fishing or hiking. The outdoors has so much to offer and there are endless possibilities and adventures for you to enjoy together.
Recreate your First Date
What did you do during your first date? Did you have dinner and drinks? Did you meet at a street fair or a sports club? Were you both in the same bookstore, coffee shop, trivia bar or comedy club? It would be nice if you can meet there much like you did during your first date, rather than go there together. It will surely add some spice to your date.
Celebrate with Your Loved Ones
If you’re reaching a significant milestone in your relationship, it’s common to celebrate the occasion with your closest family and friends. If you want to keep it low-key, invite everyone over for an intimate dinner party.
Throw a fun-filled party if you like big celebrations. Send out fancy anniversary invitation cards weeks ahead to give your guests time to respond and to prepare for the event. You and your partner can either organize your own anniversary party or hire an event organizer to take care of everything. Either way, the most important thing is to have fun and to enjoy the celebration.
Go on a Road Trip
Make sure to organize your playlist for those soothing sounds while you cruise on the road and head for another town. You can even wear matching shirts like they do in the movies, or stop by a local brewery, or head for a spot where you can both watch the sunset together.
Take a Class
What sparks up your interests? Do you both love to paint or to cook? Do you want to try pottery? It would be nice if you could take a class that sparks up your interests. This will be an avenue for you to spend some time together, even if it is no longer your anniversary.
Wrapping it up, it doesn’t really matter where you go or what you do. What matters is you spend time together on that memorable day that the universe allowed your paths to cross.
