Unique Gifts to Have for Each Other
Time flies when you are having fun – and when you are with the one you love. As the years go by, perhaps your anniversaries begin to sneak up on you, with you and your loved one seemingly always ending up going out to dinner again. Or perhaps the big day comes and goes, and you don’t do anything at all because you are on a tight budget and can’t think of something to do that is celebratory, memorable, and won’t cost a fortune. Here are some ideas that can be both romantic and financially smart:
Recreate Your Wedding Night Menu
Try to recreate your first wedding meal with your spouse. Work together to choose recipes, go shopping for the ingredients, and cook as a team for your anniversary. You can surely enjoy it together especially that you are having fun. It will be better like that. Making it with your husband would certainly be a fun challenge. For those of you who are really ambitious, try recreating your wedding cake. If you are not married and celebrating a dating anniversary, try to cook what you ate on your first date. It will surely be the best meal that you can ever have.
Have Your Own Personal Photo Shoot
Make a list of some of your favorite places around town, load up your camera, and have your own photo shoot! Go to places that hold special meaning to you and your significant other. Perhaps you could stop at the place you had your first kiss or the church where you were married. Ask a passerby to take a couple shots of you. Another idea is to simply take a photo of you together each year on your anniversary. Keep an anniversary album for these special memories. This will also be a perfect idea that you can do.
Make an Anniversary Mix CD
Make a CD of all the songs that have meaning in your relationship, and go somewhere special to relax and listen. Share with each other the memories you associate with the songs. Another idea is for each person to make a CD to share with the other. Then, stay home and dance! This is also another great idea that you can share together during your wedding anniversary. Just relax together with some of your favorite mixes and communicate. You never know that it might be the best anniversary moment that you will ever have.
