Recreate the moment:
Anniversaries are important because they help people to relive a significant event in their lives. If that event was a happy one, like your first date or your wedding day, what better way to re-live it than to actually recreate it? Put yourselves in similar situations wear your wedding clothes and jewellery and have a private at-home celebration of your wedding by holding hands and saying your vows again. Visit all the places where you both had amazing and romantic experiences and let the nostalgia engulf you.
Be thoughtful rather than extravagant:
If you want to show your partner how much you care for them and how grateful you are to have been able to spend an entire year with them, you might be tempted to buy an extravagant gift for them to help you send that message. But honestly, it’s not necessary that the price of a gift has any effect on how much it is appreciated by the recipient. Instead, how about getting them a thoughtful gift that reminds you of them, or one that has special significance in your relationship.
Just the two of you:
Anniversary parties can surely be fun but a more special way to share your love for one another would be in private. Even if you do plan to have a party on your first anniversary, it’s important to set aside some time for just the two of you. After all, you are reliving a moment in which you made a special commitment to one another and it’s important to have time to reflect on that in a more intimate setting.
Guys, even if you have already booked the table in your wife’s favorite restaurant, there are still chances of taking her by surprise. Wake her up with breakfast in bed (that you specially prepare for her) or a small gift with a cup of coffee. Gifts and gestures that aren’t expected can often be the most meaningful, especially for women.
