To lighten the mood on your anniversary, head to a comedy show to laugh.
Rather than hitting up the boring old movie theater, why not opt for a classic drive-in?
As most people know, that first wedding anniversary is the Paper Anniversary.
If you are looking for a 1st anniversary gift, obviously you could just go with cash - that lovable, spend able paper gift, but let's talk about making something a lot more personal.
Some are simple, some are more involved, and the prices and effort required vary—but all are decidedly not-lame.
Because you guys are #relationshipgoals, and deserve to be celebrated.
We’ve created a list of activities that are fun, romantic, and classic.
For our first anniversary (which is traditionally the paper anniversary), I took sand from Lake Michigan (where my husband was born) and put it in an old bottle with a stopper top.
He loved it and it still sits on his dresser by the bed! My husband took the batteries out of a wall clock, set it to the time we got married, and wrote a poem around the outside of it. I bought a jar and filled it with his favorite candy and wrapped each candy with a piece of paper that had a reason why I love him. On our first year anniversary, my husband gave me a photo album he had worked on the entire year to commemorate our first year together. One year we decided to get creative and set a limit and whatever we did it had to fit in a noodle box. Husband made me a dozen roses out of my favorite candy (stuffed Twizzlers). Wrote out the words of all the little ways he shows me love everyday and framed it… Treat your spouse to a 30-minute massage, followed by an enzyme facial (don’t attempt to do extractions…enzyme facial mask will do the trick and can be purchased anywhere for less than ), manicure and pedicure.
What says romance like spending the day and night at a chic hotel in your city, or a quaint B&B in the country? If you’re the type of couple who’s never home at the same time, spend your anniversary on the couch with takeout, plenty of wine, and a series you both love on Netflix or Redbox.
This one will only work if you’re both open to ending up anywhere.
