Gifting the love of your life with a flattering portrait of yourself might seem like a good idea for the five-year occasion, but it’s a tad self-absorbed and borderline creepy. Aim for a subtler gesture of loyalty by investing in a work of art that characterizes the special qualities of your lasting union. Imaginative and grounding, these one-of-a-kind creations endure love’s trials and tribulations and set the tone for a lifelong partnership.
When was the last time you slow danced in the aisles with your loved one? Maybe a high-octane jam session with your favorite cover band will get the old pitter-patter going again. Whatever the affair, this glorious occasion calls for some extended handholding even if it all goes down in the best nosebleed seats in the house. Don your finest threads for a show-stopping evening of unforgettable merrymaking. Love is about to take center stage!
Here’s hoping your mate sees this milestone as an accomplishment … rather than a prison sentence! Straightforward and irrefutable, this loving gesture will serve as a daily wake-up call as your partner in crime contemplates the meaning of life and drafts mental to-do lists while scarfing down breakfast. Ambiguity gets in the way of honest communication. Tally up some truth for a change and see if you can make it to ten!
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!
Quit the juvenile bickering, love birds … you have the next thirty years to do plenty of that! Opt for a more meaningful way to commemorate this crucial five-year turning point. Take a little field trip to the spot where your two souls first collided. You may not have known it back then, but this little slice of the universe gave birth to what the two of you share today. Go ahead, see if those butterflies start to flutter again…
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!
Finish off that anniversary meal with a sweet, sticky surprise that the two of you love birds can take turns nibbling on. So much more fulfilling than your average stuffed teddy, this jumbo gummy will hit the sweet spot and bring on some finger-licking giggles that are just the right fit for this five-year affair. Super-sized penny candy doesn’t get any better than this!
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.
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.
