It’s the time of the year to celebrate your special date: first (or another) year has passed since your love has started! And no matter if this is your 1st or your 50th anniversary, we got you covered with these fail-proof gift ideas that no one can resist!
1. Make Dinner Reservation
You may think that dinner is a boring solution, but you should never underestimate the value of a good meal! Weather you are eating at home or taking your loved one to a nice restaurant, it will be great surprise as long as you have planned your evening just for two of you! Turn off your phones, get a baby sitter and even take a day off and cook a favorite meal for your partner or get the reservations for the trendiest place in town (which ever you prefer). For an ideal end to a nice dinner, give your partner tickets to his/hers favorite play, concert or a movie.
2. Go away together
Travelling is a perfect opportunity to have same time alone with each other (and we know you really deserved a vacation). If you don’t want to go too far, maybe you can just take a walk to a place where you first met (or kiss) or get truly romantic and go away for a whole week. Don’t have any ideas? Check our recommendations for destinations in Europe and be sure to take a lot of pictures (so later you can make a nice photo collage).
3. Get a pet
This may seem radical, but when you think about it – why not?! Having a pet can reduce blood pressure, cholesterol level and make you more calm and relax. Pets are wonderful companionship and bring us untold joy but if you think they are a big commitment, studies show that even watching fish in an aquarium can help you reduce tension. Also, when choosing a pet, make sure to consider their size, activity and temperament – the more they look like you, the better.
4. Make lovely DIY project
Now it’s the time to do it – start writing a love letter. Yep, a real one, with your own hand. We know that letter may seem old fashioned, but just think about it, someone sat at the table and wrote how they feel about you – is that a true romantic gesture or what? When you finish, you can even put your letter in a bottle like a true anniversary treasure. Need more help with this? Count how many days and nice moments you had together and put it on a piece of paper. It looks amazing and it’s very simple to do.
5. Turn your photo into your own Anniversary Painting
If you think that pet is out of the question and that you can do better than some dinner, movie and a fancy DIY, try making a unique gesture and make a really nice surprise for your partner. Show how much you care, understand and cherish your better half by turning your favorite photo into painting. Or maybe not even your own photo, some painting that is personal for you or done by her/his favorite author. This is a perfect way to turn your home into an oasis and give a really meaningful gift to your only one.
