Need a little inspiration...?
You've come to the right place...
Make A Big Deal Of It
If your marriage was worth celebrating once, it ought to be worth celebrating again!
Your wedding anniversary should be a memorable occasion, so make it one, and a big one at that.
Who says you can't go all out on your wedding anniversary.
These special days in our lives don't come around often, so they are worth putting some time and effort into to show our loved ones just how much we really do care.
Your wedding anniversary is a time to focus on the development and growth of your marriage, as well as a time to set new commitments that are in keeping with your flourishing relationship.
Don't be afraid to show your partner how much they mean to you, and give thanks to the joy, comfort and love that they bring to you each and every day.
Ideas for that Special Someone
If you want to make your wedding anniversary one to be remembered, then you'll want to choose a gift that is extra special.
Not quite sure where to start?
Here are some ideas to get you going...
Write A Love Letter
Love letters are a great way to keep playfulness alive in your relationship, plus sometimes we just can't quite find the words we really want to say.
Writing down your thoughts and feelings gives you a chance to be honest about how you feel, as well as how your partner makes you feel.
Stuck for words?
Cruise the local bookstore and let a famous poet do the talking for you.
From Shakespeare to John Keats, you're sure to find something which stirs the heart.
All you have to do is write a simple dedication.
Make A Mixed-tape
Ok, we meant playlist but there is just something old romantic about the word mixtape.
Ever heard the saying 'music soothes the soul'?
When words aren't enough - use a song to express how you truly feel.
We're not sixteen anymore, but that doesn't mean we can't still make a love fueled playlist.
Download all your favorite tunes and create a compilation that will leave your spouse reeling.
If you're not much of a computer whiz then enlist the help of a friend, or even your kids!
If you've got an artistic flair, put your skills to the test and design a thoughtful album cover and track list to accompany the gift.
Head For The Outdoors
If the sun is shining and the sky is blue get out there and enjoy it.
From hiking in a magical forest surrounding to whizzing through the mountains quad bike style, there are plenty of outdoor activities to get involved in.
Check out your local tourist office for inspiration and advice on what to do in your area.
Grab the hamper and take a picnic along with you.
A glass of champagne in hand as you sit back, relax and soak in the great outdoors whilst your soul mate feeds you scrumptiously divine strawberries.
Indulge With A Spa Break
A wedding anniversary is the perfect excuse to pamper yourself.
Get tickets for two with all the trimmings at a luxurious health resort for the ultimate in relaxation.
Indulge yourself with a full body massage then unwind with a soothing dip in the Jacuzzi.
If you want to go the whole hog, then why not spend the night and make use of all the in house facilities whilst you're there.
Once you've had your fill of rejuvenating treatments, head on down to the restaurant and tantalize your taste buds with some of the delicious healthy treats that are available.
A Night At The Opera
Make your partner's dreams come true by splurging on tickets to their favorite entertainment.
Is one of their all time greatest idols making an appearance in town?
Play dumb and surprise them with tickets and they'll love you forever.
Whether you're heading out to the opera dressed up to the nines, or ending the night in stitches after watching a comedy appearance you'll never forget, you're certain to make lots of new and exciting memories that can be treasured for years to come.
Stay At Home
If you don't want to break the bank with an extravagant wedding anniversary gift, then nothing beats a quiet night in.
Offload the kids with a family member, lock the door and unplug the phones.
If you're a bit of a foodie then take this opportunity to show off your culinary skills and delight with a gorgeous home cooked meal for two.
Set the scene with romantic music and a roaring fire in the fireplace.
Cuddle up and watch a movie or if you prefer use this alone time to talk to one another about all the things that you love them for.
DIY gifts are often the best just because they are super personal and heartfelt.
Not sure what to make?
How about a scrapbook of some of your most memorable moments, or an I Love You jar filled with 365 reasons you love your partner (one for each day of the year).
These sort of gifts are ideal for those with time on their hands and those wishing to spend little to no money.
DIY presents raise the bar, and let your spouse know that they too can get creative if they are up for the challenge.
Relive Your Big Day
There is no better time to relive your wedding day, than when celebrating your anniversary.
It's so easy to get distracted by everyday life, and in turn, forget how much that special day meant to you and your relationship.
Renew Your Vows
Nothing says 'I love you' quite like renewing your vows.
In a world where divorce has become something of the norm, a couple staying together is worth celebrating!
Whether you and your spouse have made it to a landmark anniversary, or you simply want to do it all again, a vow renewal could be just the thing.
Whatever you decide, make sure you are doing it for the right reasons, (because you want to reaffirm your love for one and other) not because you miss wedding planning and want to throw another kick ass party.
Did we mention you could renew your vows in paradise?
Destination wedding renewals are all the rage, meaning not only do you get to walk down the aisle for a second time - you also get to spurge on an exotic getaway!
Dig Out Your Wedding Album
You know...that thing collecting dust on your bookshelf!
Wedding albums are priceless keepsakes that often get forgotten about as the years fly by.
Dig them out, along with your wedding video and spend the night snuggled up on the couch pouring through the pages as you reminisce over the real thing.
Share Your First Dance All Over Again
Put on your finest frock, turn the lights down low and take each other for a spin across the living room floor whilst listening to your one and only first dance song.
If the weather's nice then why not dance alfresco style!
You'll soon see who still has the moves.
Dine Out at Your Wedding Venue
Another way to spend this beautiful day is to return to your place of marriage and if possible grab a bite to eat whilst there.
Better yet, order something that was on your wedding menu for a full sensory experience.
A little nostalgia never hurt anyone.
