Time flies when you're having fun – especially with the one you love. As the years pass, your anniversaries slowly become all about going out for dinner every time. Or worse, you forget your anniversary.
Your tight budget doesn't let your mind think of creative ways to celebrate your anniversaries in a memorable way that won't cost you a fortune. (Obviously, a holiday away sounds fun; but is it worth mortgaging your home to finance the trip?)
Thanks to this article, you can be both romantic and financially smart. Here are four inexpensive and innovative ways to celebrate your upcoming anniversary.
Relive Your First Date
Where did your first date happen? We're sure you remember it, as first-experiences are the unforgettable ones. If possible, try to visit that place again with your partner and relive those magical moments. Experience the thrill of seeing each other for the first time, feel the goosebumps and smile because you're with the person you love.
However, it's not possible to replicate the first-time experience every time. For example, maybe you met at a restaurant on your first date several years ago, and it has been closed. Or maybe you have changed the city or the country. Life happens, but don't let this sour your experience. Try finding a similar place and enjoy the moments with your better half!
Have Your Own Personal Photo Shoot
Make a list of your favourite spots in the city, take your camera and enjoy your own photoshoot! Visit places that hold special meaning to you and your significant half. You can also stop at the place where you kissed your partner for the first time or the church where you got married.
Ask a passerby to take a few photos of you or take as many selfies as you can. Another great way is to click a photo together every year on your anniversary. Maintain an anniversary album for these special memories.
Cute Gifts to Make Your Partner's Day
Anniversaries are incomplete without gifts and chocolates, and yours doesn't have to be an exception. If you are confused as to what to gift to your partner, you can choose from beautifully-arranged chocolate bouquets, elegant prosecco hampers, delicious beer gifts or lovely fruit bouquets.
You can also search for "wedding anniversary gifts uk'' on Google to find websites that offer amazing anniversary gifts. Websites like Edibleblooms offer same day delivery gifts as well, just in case you recall your anniversary day on the very last moment!
Watch Your Wedding Video
If you’ve been married for a while, you'll most likely don't know where your wedding video is. And we won't blame you. Life happens, and sometimes we forget to keep track of important things. However, watching your wedding video with your partner can instantly give you goosebumps of the happiest time of your lives.
So make the effort – search for the wedding DVD and don't give up until you find it. Sit with your partner and relive the moments that tied you in a beautiful unbreakable knot for life. This is a guaranteed feel-good experience that will make you kiss your partner like the first time.
