Every anniversary with your partner is something to be celebrated, and not just because it’s something to do. It’s a way to reflect on your relationship together and to celebrate being together. Appreciating your partner is something that can, unfortunately, fall to the wayside when stress and work get in the way, and a great way to remind each other of what you mean to one another is by making a big deal about your anniversary, even if it’s your first, and even if it’s your twenty-seventh.
There are so many ways that you can make your anniversary special, especially if the past one or two anniversaries were spent in lockdown. To help you get ready for your next one, consider these top tips and adapt them to suit your partner:
· Plan Something Unique to Do
When planning something do to on your anniversary, remember to always put your partner, or both of you, at the heart of your planning. If your partner is someone who loves the outdoors, then what you plan will be different than if they love being in the heart of the action.
A few questions to ask yourself when planning on what to do for your anniversary include:
- Do you want to be alone, or do you like being out on the town?
- What do the two of you enjoy doing together the most?
- Do you want to be local or abroad?
- What is your budget?
If you have a big budget, you can rent a romantic getaway in another country that suits you and your partner to a T. If your budget is tight, then get creative. You can get candles, and pillows and set up your living room in a beautiful way to enjoy a cozy, intimate night together that is a roaring success.
· Have a Custom Song Made
Writing a song for someone is one of the most romantic things that you can do, but not everyone is a musician or singer, and even fewer people know how to create a song from scratch. Thankfully you don’t need to know either. You can instead go to Songly.com.au and have a custom song created for your anniversary. You tell them the story, the memories, and feelings you want to be summed up in the song, and they will come back to you with a custom, one-of-a-kind song made just for your partner.
· Start a Tradition
Anniversaries are there to celebrate how far you have come, so start a tradition that celebrates how far you will go. Every year you can get one more addition that builds as you build your life together. This can be a charm for your partner’s bracelet, or it could be a small trinket you buy from a souvenir shop that only means something because you bought it as an anniversary celebration. These little collections can be as expensive or as budget-friendly as they need to be; it is the tradition, and the promise of next year, that makes them so special.
