Wedding anniversaries are special for all the couples, be it a newly wedded or an old one. They mark the journey of two people as a couple who go through ups and downs of life but still manage to stay together. No one else can make it a day to remember but the couple themselves. Be it something big that you wish to arrange like a party or small like a print postcard, make sure it reflects you. So if you are confused wife or a worried husband, here is a list of things that you can do this year on your anniversary to make your soul mate remember it for the rest of their life.
To start off, keep in mind the things that your spouse likes and dislikes. Because what you are going to arrange is for them, it should be of their choice or there is no point in arranging so much. Let’s get started.
Dinners are highly recommended because the day is just about the two of you. It’s about what you two have been through all these years and you are still managing to stick together in all the good and bad times. You can go out on a dinner date or you can arrange it at home. Now if you are the kind of person who prefers to stay out of public eye and spend time alone. You can stay at home and arrange a beautiful candle light dinner. Send you kids out and let it be just the two of you alone on the table. You can cook the food yourself (something special) or you can order food from any of your favorite restaurant.
If you don’t mind spending the day out, then you can dinner out, somewhere fancy and lavish. But it’s your day, so whatever place you feel is special for the two of you, go there. There are restaurant near the sea or themed restaurants, so if you want it to feel a little extraordinary and different from the usual, go to a different place where you don’t go usually.
It’s all about spending the day together so you can add a movie to your schedule for the day. You can again go out and watch it in the theatre or watch a classic flick on the TV. If you choose to go out, you will have to watch a new movie which might not be of your choice at the end. If you two don’t mind experimenting new things, then this is perfect for you. But if you have a very strong taste and like watching a specific genre, you should stay at home and get DVDs of your favorite movies. Classic romantic movies are recommended like Titanic. Or you can just select any movie that you two have always liked and watch it again to refresh your memories.
It might sound boring, but old couples still prefer some things the traditional way. Even if you two live close, you can still print postcard and give it to your spouse along with a gift. These are the things that they can hold for the rest of their lives. Memories are collected and what you give to them is a memory.
You can go online and customize print postcard for them or you can pick up a set from the market that are already printed. If your spouse live somewhere away from the home or happen to be away on the anniversary, this is the best thing that you can get for them.
Gifts and Flowers
Gifts are a part of every occasion be it a birthday or Christmas, so why not on Anniversaries? Go out and buy something your spouse loves. Like women adore diamonds and clothes. Any piece of accessory or cloth would be a good gift whereas men can be gifted a good cologne or a watch. But these are just stereotypes. You can go for anything that you know your spouse likes and gift it to them.
Flowers are another part of anniversaries. They are delicate and beautiful. Husbands are suggested to get at least one flower for their wives on this very day. If you have a nice big gift planned already, you may skip a bouquet and get a single flower instead or if you are getting something small like a ring, a big red bouquet would compliment it perfectly. But again, it’s all upon your imagination and likes, so choose whatever you like.
There are a lot of places that you can go to, to dance and have a nice time with your spouse. A romantic ball would be perfect to end the day. Some of the restaurants are also out there that carry out dance after the dinners. Or if you think you are a bad dancer, you can always try it at home. Play a light music; put your hand on her waist, and think of your house as the ball room right now. So even if it has been years since you two married and even if your lives are too busy to give each other time, this show how much you two still adore each other.
Anniversaries mark another year in your life, another year full of ups and downs, another that you two went through together, another year of happiness, another year of tough times but at the end, another year of togetherness. Marriage works only if both people actually want it to, people compromise and so must have you two. This day should be made as much special as possible. So even if you didn’t arrange a lavish party and only sent out a print postcard, your love remained the same. It can never be measured through your pocket or your small gestures, but your heart and feelings. These were the top 5 ways of spending this day with your husband/wife and making it special for them and for yourself.
