Celebrating your anniversary with your partner/spouse is an important thing to do. Not only to remember your first day as boyfriend and girlfriend or husband and wife but also to keep the sparks between you and your loved one. If you run out of ideas to celebrate it, you can choose one of 7 Ideas to Celebrate the Anniversary below.
Relieve Your First Date
I’m sure you still remember every single detail of the day when you and your partner go on a date for the first time, especially if you still keep your photos of that day. You will not forget the location of your first date, how you prepare for it, how nervous you were at the time, and how it goes. It was tense you up but exciting, right? Why don’t you relieve that day to celebrate your anniversary? It will be fun to go to the place of your first date and do the same thing you do on the first date (you can wear the same clothes and accessories that you wear on that day too if it is possible!). By relieving your first date, you will feel all the sparks and excitement that you felt years ago and your relationship will be renewed. You can also take photos and collate it with photos of your first date, then post it to your social media with sweet or funny anniversary captions.
Picnic in the Garden
Want to take a short escape from hustle and bustle of your town? Celebrate your anniversary by having a picnic in a quiet garden. There’s nothing more relaxing than breathing fresh air, seeing flowers, butterflies, and trees and hear the sound of birds while having a picnic with your loved one. You can also listen to your favorite music together from your device. Bring your favorite food and drink, carpet, travel pillows, hat, sunglasses, and of course your anniversary cake! If it’s not possible to find any quiet garden in your town, you can do it in your own backyard (just pretend that you are somewhere else).
Having a romantic dinner is the most common way to celebrate an anniversary. If you have enough money, you can arrange a private dinner at your favorite restaurant with romantic music. If you have a tight budget, you can cook your own dinner at home and decorate your dining room with flowers and candles to create a romantic atmosphere. You can find some tutorials to cook dinner and decorate a room on youtube or social media. Don’t forget to prepare your anniversary gift for your partner.
Watch Favourite Movie at Home
There’s nothing more comfortable than hugging your partner on the couch while watching your favorite movie and eat your favorite snacks. If you bored with your favorite movies that you watch million times, you can make a simple-yet-romantic “documentary” video about your relationship from the beginning until this year to surprise your partner or simply watch your wedding video and look at your old photos together to bring back the memories. Remember, the most important thing about celebrating an anniversary is not about places that you visit and activities that you do, it’s about being together with your partner and enjoy the moment.
Have you ever do a special photoshoot together with your partner? (except your pre-wedding photoshoot). If you don’t, you can do a romantic anniversary photoshoot at your favorite places or in the photo studio. Choose the theme of the photoshoot, wear your best costume, and bring your old stuff such as old photos, gifts from your partner, your wedding / first date clothes, a ticket of concert or movie that you watched together, etc as the property of your photoshoot. Print the best photo in the large size, put it in a nice frame, and display it in your bedroom or living room. Put the rest photos in a nice photo album and save the softcopy in case you want to print it again later. Have a special photoshoot is not only an exciting way to celebrate your anniversary, someday it will make you smile again when you look at the photos (you can also show it to your kids and grandchild!).
