What to do for one month dating anniversary
Coming to an anniversary with your significant other—whether it’s one year or 12—is always worth celebrating. ) Plus, it’s true that relationships are hard work, and milestones should be marked, because hey, you guys are still crushing those #relationshipgoals. What says romance like spending the day and night at a chic hotel in your city, or a quaint B&B in the country?
It's common for couples to exchange gifts on the monthly and yearly anniversaries of when they first met, or when they had their first date. Spending the day sipping vino is the perfect way to unwind and hang out. Plus, you’ll bring something home that you made together. Find a hot tub spa, a chic bathhouse, or hot springs. If you’re the type of couple that loves to take #selfies, what better way to celebrate your love than to hire a photographer to take stylish photos of the two of you? If your anniversary is in the winter, there’s no better way to add adventure to your anniversary than spending the day skiing and the night cuddled by the fire. Painting classes are getting super-popular, and you’ll get to spend the night creating something. Rather than playing Scrabble in your living room, get competitive outside the house, at a local bar with darts, pool, or foosball. Below, we’ve created a list of anniversary date ideas that are fun, romantic, and classic. A night at the theater, a museum, a dance show, the opera—find what you’re into, and splurge for a night! Some are simple, some are more involved, and the prices and effort required vary—but all are decidedly not-lame. It makes senses that there are more cards for people who actually tied the knot and aren’t just calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend, but I started thinking about anniversary celebrations in general and realized they can create a lot of stress or annoyance, depending on the situation.
At my best college friend’s wedding, a groomsman joked that the bride and groom were very good at honoring “month-aversaries” in Facebook status updates.
Handbag, dresser valet, perfume, cologne, or a fragrance gift set that suits their taste is also a good choice (Tip for the men: avoid experimenting when giving fragrances, stick to what she likes).
Experience gift, amusement park tickets, or something fun to go do.
On the sentimental side, a framed collage of memorabilia from 1st date, make a scrapbook of your first year together, or turn a photo of you together into art.
I bought a few things from Open Sky and went to Target on Cyber Monday (but not Black Friday, because I don’t want to get trampled) to get holiday shopping out of the way, and after glancing at the horrifically violent Legos in the kids’ aisle, I decided to wait on purchasing gifts for my nephews and headed for the greeting cards section.
They’d recognize the anniversary of their first date, first kiss, first “I love you” declaration, engagement, etc., all of which are special but hard to remember for those outside the relationship.
