3 Steps to an Amazing Anniversary A new year brings with it new milestones & celebrations, one of our favorites being anniversaries. Whether you’re in the golden years of your marriage or it’s still puppy love, we have a few simple tips to help you make this anniversary your best yet.
- Don’t Forget It! This one’s pretty simple – you can’t celebrate something you don’t remember is happening. Circle the date on your calendar, make a reminder in your phone, do whatever you have to do to remember your special day. And ladies, don’t think you’re immune – we know a married couple in which both the husband and the wife yearly remember their anniversary – a week after the fact!
- Plan Something That Truly YOU Romance is not one size fits all. While to some, roses, chocolates and a candlelit dinner equal the perfect anniversary celebration, some prefer adventure, while others simply crave an evening at home together. For classic romantics, you can’t go wrong with reservations at a restaurant that’s meaningful to you – maybe it’s where you had your first date or rehearsal dinner. Thrill seekers, why not test out a new spot for dinner then test your problem-solving skills at Escape Evansville. And a quiet evening at home can mean much more than Netflix & Chill. Make it an event by creating an elaborate menu and cooking a meal together or challenge each other to Chopped by choosing 4 random ingredients in your kitchen – whoever crafts the tastier dish wins.
- Sparkle & Shine Never Hurt Money can’t buy love – but it CAN by diamonds (hint, hint). A meaningful token to remember the time you’ve spent together is truly the best gift you could give, because every time your sweetie wears it, they’ll think of you. For your lady, choose an Alex and Ani bracelet for the sports team you both love or the university where you met, take it up a notch with an Jaffe map pendant to mark a special place in your relationship, and for milestone anniversaries, and if you’re celebrating a milestone anniversary, add an anniversary band to her bridal set or surprise her with an engagement ring upgrade. For the guys, choose a stylish timepiece from Michael Kors or Fossil and let us engrave a secret love note on the back!
