09 Apr 5 IDEAS FOR THE PERFECT ANNIVERSARY PRESENT
DON’T SETTLE FOR BORING THIS YEAR
An anniversary is one of the most important occasions in a couple’s life together. It’s a time when they can come together to appreciate all of the magical firsts they have experienced together, as well as celebrate another year spent as one another’s partner.
Unfortunately, finding the perfect gift to express how much you cherish and love your significant other can be tough, especially for those of us who are lost in the gift-giving arena. If you have an anniversary coming up but have no idea where to start when it comes to gifts, take a look at our list of ideas below.
1. A LIMOUSINE RIDE
For your anniversary, focusing on providing your significant other with an experience rather than material goods is a great way to mix things up. Few experiences communicate elegance, luxury and effort like booking a limousine for your night out. Sure, it’s easy to book dinner reservations at a fancy restaurant and then drive yourself.
Think about the time you’ll spend in the car on the way to your destinations, and how much of it you’ll be distracted by traffic, navigating or trying to find parking? You won’t be able to indulge your partner in the attention they deserve on your anniversary. Having an experienced chauffeur on hand to deal with the massive responsibility of driving in the city means more time to gaze into each other’s eyes and reminisce.
2. A BROADWAY PLAY
If you’re lucky enough to be in New York City for your anniversary, there are few experiences quite like a Broadway play. Because Broadway plays are expensive, and many of them are sold out a long time before they show, planning ahead for this anniversary gift is a must.
Get your tickets at least a month in advance and do some research on the shows both you and your significant other would enjoy together.
3. A COOKING CLASS
A cooking class is another gift that is an experience, rather than a material item; one that conveys how important your partner’s companionship is to you.
Learning how to cook a new dish together will not only provide you with the fun experience of attending the class, but measuring the ingredients, reading recipes and enjoying the resulting dish together can provide you with lasting knowledge and memories for the future.
4. A PAINTING CLASS
The same way that cooking can bring you together as a couple, and provide you with an amazing skill you can use together in the future, taking a painting class with your significant can provide you with some amazing experiences as well.
Get out of your comfort zone and take a painting class together in one of the many painting venues around. And, the individual paintings that result from your painting class together will serve as souvenirs of your anniversary and the shared laughs, insights and thrills that you experienced together.
5. A TOUR OF NOSTALGIC LOCATIONS
If you’ve already booked a limousine for the evening, but you don’t have plans for where to go, a tour of nostalgic locations is one of the most personal and memorable ways to spend your time.
Creating a tour of important locations in the history of your relationship will communicate how deeply you value the journey you and your significant other have taken, and will emphasize the importance of your history together on such an important day.
