Are you having an anniversary coming up? When you’re having fun and being happy, time flies, right? Well, its no wonders that you’re about to celebrate another 12 months with your significant other. Either you’re celebrating 1, 10 or 30 years of being together, you have to make it a memorable one.
If you have been together, married for some time, you may have had a less than memorable anniversary. We get it, you live hectic lives and sometimes things like anniversaries are just not at the top of the list. Maybe one or both of you forgot about it (kids, family issues, work, etc). Whatever happened, the thing is that the day came and went and you did nothing to celebrate it.
It’s important to celebrate a milestone like an anniversary. Just look at what you’ve accomplished as a couple! You have gone through so much together (good and bad) and you have made it so far. Celebrating anniversaries is important for the health of your relationship. Why won’t you want to celebrate an important day doing something special?
Anniversaries are a great way to reminisce, to go down memory lane and relive all those beautiful memories that have made your relationship special. Anniversaries also offer an amazing opportunity to practice gratefulness for you having by your side a great partner. You can show each other your love and it can strengthen your bond.
So don’t let this one slip by you without making a fuss. There are so many things you can do to make it memorable. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate celebration, with a little bit of creativity and some help from us, we’re sure you’re going to find something fresh and fun to do with your significant other.
Here’s a list of activities you can do to make this coming anniversary unforgettable:
1. A private session of salsa dancing
If you’re an active couple who enjoys dancing together to any rhythm, this could be just the thing for you. Salsa dancing is a pretty sexy dance so besides doing something fun you’ll be heating things up too.
You can search for couples classes near you and book one for your anniversary date, or if you don’t feel like going out, there’s always Youtube. We’re sure you’ll find some music with dance tutorial, so you can dance your heart out.
2. Go see a concert of a band you both like
Is there a band or a singer that you both love? Music has the power of bringing people together so what better way to celebrate your special day than by listening to music that you both love and enjoy? Go have a fun and musical time this year and, maybe, make an annual event?
3. Pack a picnic
Nothing more romantic and fun than eating your favorite food together in a beautiful setting. So pack a picnic with the food you both like (don’t forget the bottle of champagne) and enjoy them at the park or, if the weather is not cooperating, your living room will be totally fine.
4. Go to a comedy club
Go have some laughs and some drinks at a comedy club. Laughing together is a great way to celebrate your anniversary. Find a club where you can be cozy and spend the night laughing.
5. Write your own love story
This could be such a cool way of reminiscing and making your relationship stronger. You could write it together or you could each write your own version and then bring it together so you can have the two sides of the story (that should be interesting and fun). Then you can print it and keep it as a treasured memento of this special anniversary.
6. Go glamping
This is camping with style. If you’re an outdoorsy couple, this could be such a fun way to celebrate your special day. You get to spend a night out in the wilderness in a very cozy and stylish tent. You can look at the stars and drink a little bit (or a lot) of champagne.
7. Wine tasting at a vineyard
