Anniversary Celebration Ideas


Your wedding anniversary is a wonderful time to celebrate your marriage, fondly remember the past, and look forward to your future together. Give your anniversary the special attention it deserves by making a big deal of the day. These anniversary celebration ideas will help to make your special occasion memorable and romantic.

You know the old custom of saving the top tier of the wedding cake to eat on the first anniversary? It is a time honored tradition, yet who really wants to eat a piece of cake that has been languishing in the back of the freezer for the past twelve months. A great custom to begin on your first wedding anniversary is to order a small cake in the same flavor as your wedding cake. Go ahead and save the top tier to open on your anniversary, but then eat the fresh cake with your sweetie. Ordering a mini cake to share is a great thing to do each year on your wedding anniversary. Get a nice bottle of Champagne to go with it, and toast to the good times you have shared, and the great times still to come.

Jewelry is always a marvelous gift for a special occasion. It is romantic, sentimental, and beautiful – pretty much the perfect gift as far as most wives are concerned. A lovely way for a husband to show his wife how much she means to him on their anniversary is to treat her to a special piece of jewelry. There are two ways to approach it, both of which are romantic in their own right. Certainly the husband can head straight to his favorite Raleigh jewelry store, or the store in whichever town he calls home. Or, he can take his wife out to a fancy restaurant for a sumptuous anniversary dinner, and then just “happen” to stroll by that Raleigh jewelry store after the meal. He can take her inside, and invite his wife to pick out a very special new piece of jewelry on the spot, his treat.

Sometimes the most meaningful anniversary gifts are labors of love. A lovely idea is to assemble a collection of your favorite photographs taken in the year since your last anniversary. Download them to one of the online photo sites and have a small book made with all of the pictures printed in it. These little books are quite affordable, and very charming. This would be a marvelous tradition to begin on your first wedding anniversary, and to do for each anniversary that follows. What a great catalog you will have of all the vacations, family moments, and other events in your married life!

When a person is stumped for a good anniversary gift, a good place to get inspiration is the traditional lists of anniversary gifts for each year. Use the list as a starting off point, and then put a personal spin on it. The traditional first anniversary gift is paper; think of all the things that could mean: tickets to a play, the itinerary for a fabulous vacation, or a museum membership card. The possibilities are endless, as long as you keep the interests of your spouse in mind as your guide.

Remember that experiences are a wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary. You could go camping, plant a garden together, go skydiving, or send the kids to the grandparents and enjoy a quiet weekend alone. As long as you are together, your anniversary is sure to be very special.
