Traditional Anniversary Gift
As many people are aware, each wedding anniversary is associated with a specific material, and couples are encouraged to give gifts that somehow incorporate that material. For example, the first anniversary is paper, and you may decide to get your spouse tickets to see a show or write them a letter expressing how much that first year has meant to you. Keeping with that tradition could be a fun way to get creative with your gift, and it will give you and your spouse something to look forward to each and every year.
Treat Yourself to a Night Away
For some couples, going to a fancy restaurant, looking through wedding photos, and sharing a slice of your wedding cake just isn’t enough. Perhaps you’ve had a tough year, and you really want to celebrate the struggles you’ve overcome in a big way. If that’s the case, or you just want to do something special and unique, then treat yourself to a night away! Instead of spending another night in your bed, book a room in a hotel, order room service, and schedule a couple’s massage that you can enjoy together. While it may not be the same as an entire weekend away, at least it is a special way to spend some time away without the distractions of your daily life.
Throw a Party!
There’s no better way to celebrate a big achievement than throwing a party! Some couples may enjoy a quiet evening together to celebrate their wedding anniversary, but if you and your spouse like to have fun and plan events, then a party sounds like the perfect way to welcome the next year of your life together.
Invite all of your close friends and family members to celebrate this day with you. If you and your spouse have new friends or old friends who weren’t able to make it to the wedding, then make sure you send them an invite! Use the time together to talk about the memories, and most of all, celebrate the love you and your spouse share.
Go on a Honeymoon
In today’s society, not every couple can afford to go on a honeymoon right after they get married. While it would be nice to go somewhere where you can relax after the chaos of the wedding, sometimes one or both spouses have work or school, or maybe the couple wants to save up for their trip.
If you and your spouse were not able to go on a honeymoon after your wedding, then perhaps your first anniversary is the perfect time to do so! You will have had a year to save up for your trip, and you can plan your time off accordingly. It’s a great way to start the second year of your marriage on the right foot.
