Romantic Anniversary Ideas: Part I
Do you have an anniversary coming up? Congratulations! Anniversaries are a special time when you can show your spouse just how much you care and appreciate him or her. If you don’t already have anything planned, no sweat. Take a look at some of these romantic anniversary ideas that are guaranteed to make your sweetheart swoon.
1. Plan an anniversary trip.
This one requires some advance planning and saving, but a trip is a memorable way to mark a special anniversary. You even make it a surprise by asking your partner to take time off work and not revealing the reason until you are in transit or about to leave. You could go back to the city where you fell in love, the place where you honeymooned, or just a place your spouse has always wanted to go. The possibilities are endless! After you figure out where to go, make sure you arrange some activities for you two to do together while you’re there. Go hiking, check out the local shops, or plan a romantic dinner out. Maybe you’ll even find the perfect time to present your sweetheart with one of our splendid anniversary bands.
2. Make a heartfelt list of why you love your partner.
This one doesn’t cost anything but time and thought, but I promise it will mean the world to your spouse. Make an extended list of all the reasons why you love and appreciate your partner, and feel free to be effusive in your praise. Remember: make your list personal and specific, or else it won’t have much impact. Think about what makes the love of your life special and perfect for you. You could even write the list on different strips of paper and leave them around the house for your partner to find throughout the day!
3. Cook a candlelit meal.
Does your spouse have a favorite meal? Take time to cook it at home, and surprise your partner with a candlelight dinner for just the two of you. If you have kids, try to arrange for them to stay somewhere else for the night to make it all the more intimate. Or, if you’d rather get out of the house, set up a candlelit picnic somewhere picturesque. If your sweetheart prefers breakfast to dinner, you could prepare a magnificent breakfast-in-bed instead. It’s all about knowing what would mean the most to your spouse on this special day.
Do any of these sound like winners to you? If not, no problem! I’ll have another post next week with even more romantic anniversary ideas. In the meantime, browse our selection of anniversary bands.
