A wedding anniversary is a day to truly celebrate your relationship since it marks the moment when you made the decision to spend the rest of your life with your spouse. It should be a time when you and your partner can spend time together and enjoy some romance.
When your anniversary comes around, it can feel rather daunting to have to try to come up with ideas for what to do, since you’ll want it to be as special as possible; that’s a lot of pressure to have to deal with and it can take away the fun element. Instead, try not to worry too much and just focus on enjoying yourselves; here are some ways to do it.
Go On A Nature Adventure
If you and your partner love being outside in nature, think about going on a new adventure you’ve never been on before. If you want a thrill, try something like white water rafting or bungee jumping. If you prefer something more sedate, a picnic in the park or a wander through the woods could be what you need.
If you’re going to the beach, take surf lessons together or try kiteboarding on the waves to see who can last the longest. You could go on a walk together around dawn or sunset, simple but something you might not normally do.
Buy Special Gifts
If your anniversary falls at a time when going out somewhere isn’t going to be possible, then another great idea is to buy one another something truly special as a gift. Custom anniversary gifts are always a great idea as they are unique and personal, and they can bring back memories for many years to come.
Another idea is to buy something between you that you both want. This could be anything from a new puppy to a car to finally getting together enough money for a down payment on a house, or perhaps something smaller like a new TV or some gadget for the kitchen. As long as it’s something you both agree on, then anything is perfect.
Take A Vacation
Another enjoyable anniversary activity is to go on a trip with one another to a location that you both want to visit or that means a lot to you. You might consider traveling to the place where you proposed or to the spot where you spent your honeymoon if it is a special anniversary.
If you are the kind of person who is more spontaneous, just get in the car and drive until you settle on a route to see where the road leads you. Take plenty of photos along the road so you’ll have memories to share with your own family one day.
An anniversary is one of the most romantic occasions in anyone’s life, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any fun to be had. You can still be romantic with your partner by doing something together that involves plenty of adventure, and it just takes some forward planning to make sure it goes well.
