6 Ways To Celebrate Your Anniversary

Nov 24, 2007
As a dating or married couple, you and your partner should find ways to express your love for one other.

Celebrating your anniversary will rekindle the fire and passion that you found from the very first day that you met.

Whether this is your first or fiftieth wedding anniversary, here are some ways to celebrate your anniversary and look forward to happier years together:

1. Decide on what you want to do as a couple.

Just like any other aspect in your relationship, decide together how you would like to celebrate your anniversary.

Sit down with your spouse and decide whether you want to surprise each other with gifts, or buy something special together.

Check out the symbol of your anniversary year and you can set this theme when thinking up ways to celebrate.

If you plan to buy a gift together, get a separate, smaller token of your love for each other.

2. Be creative in giving gifts.

Be inventive and creative when thinking of gifts to give out to each other.

Sometimes, things that you made with your bare hands can make more of an impact than something that you bought from the store.

You can make a scrap book of the pictures that you have collected through the years. Get your kids to help out to make it more fun and meaningful.

You can also make a video or a simple PowerPoint presentation so that you can view it together.

Insert some background music, make sure that it has the songs that you first danced with, and your spouse's favorite medleys.

A gift can also be something that is not material. If you use your heart and add a little creativity, you can surely think of a non-material gift that your spouse will never forget.

3. Think up ways to pamper treat yourself and your partner.

You can spend you anniversary luxuriating in a spa.

Treat yourselves to a full body massage, a rose-scented bath or a trip to the sauna.

By pampering and relaxing your bodies, you will also prepare yourselves for a more intimate evening together.

Cap it all off with some fine dining and you will have one of your most memorable nights together.

4. Plan some alone time together.

If it is your first year together, definitely go somewhere private to celebrate. You can go back to the restaurant or romantic spot where you first met or where you had your first date.

Reminisce and tell each other stories about how you first met, and your first impression of each other.

Talking about these things would bring back the reason why you are together in the first place, which is because of your love for each other.

If you are a couple with kids, hire a baby sitter or ask a relative to look after your kids so that you can go out and celebrate.

In your everyday married life, you tend to forget to spend some quality time together as a couple because of all the household chores and taking care of the kids that you have to do.

Planning a quiet evening or having a weekend getaway should help you observe your anniversary in a private and intimate manner.

5. Plan a small, intimate get-together.

Some couples would like to share their love for each other with friends and family.

If, for example, last year you have celebrated your anniversary intimately, why not organize a small party this year?

Send out invites to the original bridal entourage to reminisce your wedding day.

Take a look at your wedding video and check out the bloopers. Have a lot of fun with your closest friends and immediate family on your anniversary.

6. Celebrate milestones with a bang.

If you are on your tenth, twenty-fifth or fiftieth wedding anniversary, have a big party. a

Invite everyone who is important to you. You may want to renew your vows, especially if you are celebrating your silver or golden wedding anniversary.

If you are celebrating your fiftieth wedding anniversary, get a gold jewelry or any golden item as a gift to your partner.

The immediate family may shower the couple with golden gifts to celebrate the occasion.

Remember, this is just a helpful guide on ways to spend your anniversary as a couple.

As long as you use your heart and creativity, you will surely come up with ways to celebrate your anniversary with your loved one in a way that you both will treasure for the rest of your lives together.
