Date Night Ideas
You’ve done so many amazing things in your first year together that you might be hard pressed for an idea to mark your one year anniversary. Don’t panic, we’ve found the perfect solution with this gift. The best part? They’ll love it so much they won’t even realize that you may have bought it with yourself in mind. We won’t tell if you won’t…
A picnic basket is a promise. You can’t just let it sit around collecting dust. No. You’ve gotta fill it with food on a regular basis and take it places. It doesn’t always have to be wine and risotto. Sandwiches and soft drinks are fine, too. But you’ve got to use it.
You have a book of wedding pictures, but it’s that first year of marital bliss that is really worth remembering. Collect all your favorites and have them printed and bound in a lovely little book. So much more fun than looking at stressed out and drunk pictures of yourself, right?
The traditional first anniversary gift material is paper, so this paper rose is both beautiful and appropriate. You won’t want to water this one, and be careful because paper cuts are way worse than rose thorn pricks, but this rose will never wilt.
This nifty first anniversary gift idea can double as a fiftieth anniversary gift as well! Fill it with romantic keepsakes of your first year, then bury it in the backyard. If you can remember where you put it, come back when you are old and gray to dig it back up! What could be more romantic than that?
Just as the sun rises and sets with each passing day, so too does your heart beat continuously for the love of your life. Mark the hours, days and years that frame out the eternal bond between you and your partner with this enduring timepiece. Ponder your everlasting connection with a timeless symbol that will anchor your relationship for years to come and add meaning and soul to your outdoor space.
The idea here is that you give them a seed some time before the big day, and tell them to plant it. They do, and they keep it watered, and eventually it sprouts. Then the bean pops out, and, if you’ve got the timing right, they notice that it says “I love you,” on the bean on the day of your anniversary. Probably buy a few to practice with first.
Exchanging wedding rings was symbolic of your never-ending love for each other and while it’s a nice tradition, it’s not really something that captures how unique and special your spouse is to you. Custom made jewelry will do just that and serve as a reminder of how special your first year was for you both through a gift that will last a lifetime.
Want to know if your love is real? Here’s what you do: make them a customized book all about your relationship. Personalize the pictures to look like you and your beloved, choose pictures and pages that reflect your lives together. If they don’t run away, your love is real.
