Visit The Place You First Met
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…
Going grocery shopping together on a Friday night doesn’t quite cut it after five monotonous years of monogamy. Hitting up the exotics aisle might feel like a walk on the wild side, but you’re going to have to add in a bit more spice than that! Test the boundaries of the relationship with an impulsive, fearless outing that just might reveal some hidden sides of yourself and your mate and elevate the intimacy factor.
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!
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.
If your mate is still by your side after five years, chances are, their heart is yours. What are you waiting for? Cupid made his choice many moons ago, so now it’s time to let the love sails catch some serious wind and for you to hang on for the ride of your life. Forget the mind games—challenge your partner to a deeply personal meeting of the minds and hearts and prepare to share some deeply guarded, yet wonderfully rewarding details. Everyone’s a winner in love!
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.
Are you one of those lucky couples that spent the first few years of your wedded bliss exploring every corner of the globe? Or maybe you’re the kind of duo that’s been anchored to the same dismal apartment for the last five years and you need some visual encouragement to get back in the travel game. Whichever way your hearts blow, this map should accompany you as you navigate life together. Inspirational and customized to fit your unique taste for adventure, this anniversary gift is essential for any young couple’s itinerary.
What better place to broadcast your exceptional partnership than the sole of a shoe? While this adorable footwear is not recommended for dog parks or the paint aisle at Home Depot, it’s perfectly suited for any outing where you and your mate want to leave your loving mark. Less permanent than matching tattoos, these sentimental sandals are cute on any enamored feet. Rubberstamp your bond today!
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!
