On our anniversary, my husband and I always splurge on an amazing meal in a romantic setting. Whether that means buying concert, theater, or sporting event tickets, going to a cooking class, or taking a spontaneous weekend getaway, make sure to choose something you’ll both truly enjoy.
I also love the idea of trying something fun and quirky like a Segway tour around your city (better bring a camera for that one)!
The Wedding Anniversary Table is well known, but what about couples who are dating?
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.
In my opinion the best anniversary gifts are ones that are shared between the two of you. So, I usually try to save the clothing or gadgets for birthdays and holidays, and instead choose something that has meaning to us both. There’s something so romantic about really taking the time to appreciate a meal together (sans cell phones and other distractions). One of the best ways to celebrate all the fun you’ve had together in your relationship so far is to make new memories together.

So, instead of gifting a tangible item, why not plan an experience?
I always put a lot of thought into anniversary gifts.
Whether you've been married for 5 or 50 years, your husband, boyfriend or partner deserves a special something that lets him know just how much you love him.
And if your man hasn't popped the question yet, or marriage just isn't for you, then we're confident that you'll find a present for your boyfriend or partner that he never knew he'd always wanted.
It was a complete surprise and is my most prized gift from him (we’ve been married 22 years now – hoping for an updated version ). My husband gave me this Love basket with all my favorite things in it (smell goods “candy” whitebear that smells like chocolate and a red and pink heart with a rose in my name). An envelope full of handmade vouchers for a back tickle, massage, favourite dinner, movie night, etc. He really enjoyed his gift since he never received one as a child. One year gave him a heart shaped box with a note inside “this heart is filled with kisses for you from me.” He loved it!
