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!
Who knew houseplants could be so thoughtful? If after five years you’re still finding it hard to get those three cherished words out, why not hire a bean to say it for you! This clever seedling will bear the weight of emotional expression and work double time to communicate your devotion and passion with vigor and determination. This momentous occasion calls for some creative cultivation!
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!
Feeling ambitiously romantic? Pleasing to the eye and your beloved’s sweet tooth, this anniversary gift may take another five years to perfect, but they’ll earn you some brownie points that will take your relationship standings off the charts. If you can pull off these confectionery delicacies, you’ll be walking the Julia Childs hall of fame for the remainder of your married life.
Go ahead and cook up a homemade meal or even make your own DIY anniversary card for that memorable five-year affair, but do yourself a favor and leave the handcrafted jewelry making to the professionals! Adorn your beloved with an exceptionally well-crafted, custom-made piece that will distinctly brand her as yours. Resist the flash of those strategically placed department store jewels and opt for something a little less in your face and a lot more symbolic.
A fitting portrayal of the passion that once burned between you and your beloved, this exquisite piece is guaranteed to stimulate that deep connection once again. You can’t help but feel a little aroused with this amorous creation gracing the bedside table. Send an indisputable message of heart-melting love to the object of your desire and consummate your five-year-old union tonight!
Why not make this year’s anniversary affair a threesome and invite Chez Marcel to take part in the merrymaking? Forget about spending the evening in a crowded dining room with fifty noisy strangers and a waiter that’s counting down the minutes ’til his next smoke break! Opt for the VIP treatment and dine in the comfort of your own home with a culinary master who’s there to cater to you and only you.
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.
