Anniversary Celebration Ideas
Your wedding anniversary is a magnificent time to celebrate your marriage, fondly recall the past, and look forward to your future together. Give your anniversary the very special attention it merits by making a big deal of the day. These anniversary celebration ideas will help to make your special occasion memorable and romantic.
You know the old convention of saving the top tier of the wedding cake to eat on the first anniversary? It is a time honored practice, yet who really desires to eat a piece of cake that has been languishing in the back of the refrigerator for the past twelve months. A great rite to begin on your first wedding anniversary is to order a small cake in the identical flavor as your wedding cake. Shoot ahead and save the top tier to open on your anniversary, but then eat the fresh cake with your sweetie. Ordering a mini cake to share is a great thing to do each year on your wedding anniversary. Get a nice bottle of Champagne to go with it, and salute to the good times you have shared, and the good times still to come.
Jewelry is always a marvelous gift for a special occasion. An awesome way for a husband to show his wife how much she means to him on their anniversary is to treat her to a special piece of jewelry. Or, he can take his wife out to a fancy restaurant for a sumptuous anniversary dinner, and then just "happen" to stroll by that Raleigh jewelry store after the meal.
Sometimes the most meaningful anniversary gifts here are labors of love. A lovely idea is to assemble a collection of your special photographs taken in the year since your last anniversary. This would be a marvelous tradition to begin on your first wedding anniversary, and to do for each anniversary that follows.
When a person is stumped for an excellent anniversary gift, a good place to get inspiration is the traditional lists of anniversary gifts for each year. Use the list as a starting off point, and then put a personal spin on it. The traditional first anniversary gift is paper; imagine all the things that could mean: tickets to a play, the travel plan for a fabulous holiday retreat, or a museum membership card. The possibilities are endless, as long as you keep the interests of your spouse in mind as your guide.
Remember that experiences are a wonderful way to honor an anniversary. You could go camping, plant a small garden together, go skydiving, or dispatch the kids to the grandparents and enjoy a quiet weekend alone. As long as you are together, your anniversary is sure to be very special.
