There is no secret formula for understanding love and making a marriage work right away. But there are things you can do to make failure nearly impossible. Think of a surprise, come home with a bouquet once in a while, or tell each other how much you love each other every day. The first anniversary is a kind of indicator because you can see how the person is actually working on it. This article is for everyone who likes to celebrate anniversaries but doesn’t want to cling to the standard traditions. You can create an original and fun anniversary celebration with these ideas!
Find Out How Your Partner Sees Your Anniversary
Before you go completely crazy, it is helpful to know how your partner views your anniversary.
It may seem silly to emphasize it this way, but don’t even think about celebrating anniversaries as a game. If you don’t think carefully about whether or not celebrating your anniversary in this way is really appropriate for the other person, you could make a big mistake, which is a real shame. Think about what the other person really likes and look at the details and the big picture. Think of his passions, create something that reminds you of your honeymoon, or imagine a future plan for the two of you. Or maybe beer instead of champagne and a bed of strawberries and rose petals will suffice.
Provide a Unique Plan
How do you hit the pressure points in your overall plan? Maybe you’re thinking of a walk or a movie night at the cinema. Or may be you don’t think these plans are appropriate for the big day since you can do this every other weekend. Think about something different from your regular routine. It’s a special day, a special night, so treat it as special. Think about a day to relax at the spa, a day to go to the center together and look at the stars through a telescope, a day to go to a theater show, a museum, the beach, and drink a variety of cocktails. Today is a special day, and you deserve the best. Celebrate your love together in a unique place.
Everyone deserves something special. With all the research you’ve already done, you’ve inevitably discovered that flowers and chocolate boxes are not the ideal gift for your partner. The nicer gifts are both decorative and practical. In addition to common items such as jewelry, watches, and shoes, consider sports equipment, tickets to a good show, or a trip to his/her hometown. We are saying that a good gift does not necessarily have to be a gold watch costing hundreds of euros or an expensive necklace with the most beautiful diamonds.
Value the feeling created by a gift. So, get creative and think hard about what would really make your loved one happy. It may be old-fashioned, but prepare a CD or playlist of songs your partner would enjoy, a beautiful painting, or a lovely poem. It will leave a much stronger impression than the jewelry you purchased. What if you are not so creative and think your painting will make her cry instead of laugh? Then it might be interesting to plan something like a treasure hunt. Hide objects and memorabilia from your relationship and eventually make this hunt happen at a place where you can enjoy a romantic dinner together. Maybe a picnic in the park on a nice day! Or a restaurant where you had your first date.
