Read on to find out 3 out-of-the-box ideas about how to celebrate your first anniversary. Make it a day you’ll talk about for the rest of your lives.
1. Dedicate The Day
Your first anniversary happens once in a lifetime. However, you want to show your partner you’re looking forward to many more anniversaries to come. Despite what you may have read in the news, long-term relationships and marriages are on the rise. Show your partner you have plans to celebrate each other for years to come. This anniversary sets the precedent for all others. That’s why dedicating your day, and presenting your loved one with a special “Certificate of Ownership” of your first anniversary is such a unique and meaningful idea. Dedicaticating a day means that the day is exclusively yours – no one else can claim it. You’ll get a gorgeous, colorful certificate that’s written in calligraphy and of course, personalized with your names.
Fun fact: Traditionally, first anniversary gifts are supposed to be made of paper, and we know your partner will love that you took the time to study the history of the celebration of love.
2. Go To “Your Place”
You want to make sure you’re celebrating your first anniversary in the right place, too. When you’re presenting your love with their gift, make sure you take them somewhere that’s special to you both. Where did you first meet? Have your first date? Say “I love you” for the first time?
Give your partner their gift there – but don’t let them know that’s what you have planned!
3. Make It A Surprise
The element of surprise is a fun and exciting thing to bring into your first-anniversary celebration. Plus, it brings back the feelings of excitement you felt when you first met. There are several ways to keep your partner guessing on your special day. Doing something like arranging a scavenger hunt to lead your partner to you can be a ton of fun! Create clues based on the history of your relationship, then have friends waiting at designated spots in order to give your partner “hints” or cute messages from you along the way. Make yourself the “final clue” by waiting with a gift in hand.
