5 Star Dinner
While the buffet circuit down at the local 99 sure is tempting fare for a fine occasion such as this, unlimited salad bars and free soda refills don’t quite capture the romance required for this fifth-year blowout. Think outside the box and leaf through that trusty Zagat guide for some five-star grub. Peruse the menu ahead of time and plan out a three-course meal that will be sure to knock your honey’s socks off. This is going to be an evening for the record books!
Playfulness is an essential ingredient to any successful union. Don’t starve your marriage of the joy and laughter that can sustain it for many years to come! Carve out some time for a little card game action with your favorite partner in crime and feel the buzz that you get from a little homegrown rivalry. Impress your spouse with a fresh new take on fun where everyone’s a winner!
If your whirlwind romance feels like a blur, maybe it’s time to start sorting through the gigabytes of digital memories so you can design a hard-copy keepsake. Not only will it breathe new life into treasured snippets of time long past, but it will become a priceless memento decades from now, when you may have trouble remembering who the heck this grumpy companion lying next to you is.
Dirt’s no match for this ambrosial anniversary gift. You’ll be pawing at your sweetheart’s cocoa-covered skin after just one shower with this chocolate mousse machine in the soap dish. Bonbon-scented bubbles are taking over bath time. Lathering up never smelled and felt so good! You’ll be begging to wash your darling’s back every chance you get.
The smooth sound of these wooden slot doors is almost as good as the warmth you’ll feel on your chest as you toast to the unbreakable bond between you and your significant other. Feeling extra festive after topping off bottle one? Meander down to drawers two and three if you so desire … there’s no shame in soaking up the whole set after five smashing years of relationship success. Replenish and repeat—this little chest of drawers will support the cause for years to come!
Be sure to resolve any disputes before launching the basket! There should only be lovey-dovey thoughts of togetherness and forever-ness once you’re floating amongst the puffy, white clouds. Who says you can’t check off an item from your bucket list after just five devoted years of relationship bliss? Kick off year six with an adventurous spirit and unbridled optimism. Let go of earthly worries and throw caution to the wind!
After five years, you may get the urge to ship your mate off to Siberia. It’s a much better idea to redirect those frustrations and draft an itinerary for a joint excursion that the two of you can enjoy … together! Whether it’s a grand adventure to a distant continent or a simpler road trip perusing local haunts and treasured nooks, embarking on a commemorative journey will breathe new life into your relationship and help remind you why you’re still together!
Bigger is not necessarily better and one exquisite bloom proves, hands down, that less really is more. What better way to express your eternal adoration for the love of your life than with this delicate, yet fiery rose, gently tucked into its own little keepsake box. A tender and poetic gesture of unwavering loyalty, this unforgettable present could start a whole new love story.
Matching t-shirts and twin bracelets are cute, but they don’t send quite the same message of togetherness that a committed couple should be aiming for. Take yourself off the market definitively with some appearance-altering skin ink. The latest in relationship branding, these companion tattoos add a whole new degree of permanence to the relationship. Be brave and go bold, but make hay while the sun shines, lovebirds—body art looks best on young, supple skin!
