Unique Anniversary Ideas: Part 1

Your anniversary is such a special day each year. Whether you are married or just dating, it symbolizes another year together and another year of memories. If you have been with your partner for a long time, it can be SO hard to come up with a good idea for their gift year after year. Here are a few simple ideas that will help you out!

Date Night In


Who doesn't love a good date night? Think of your partner's absolute favorite meal. Can you recreate it at home? Don't be afraid to go all out. Whether they love pizza or a pasta dish, see if you can find a delicious recipe to make it your own. Just that fact that made it from scratch, will totally blow their mind! If you don't love to cook, that is okay! Order a to go meal from their favorite restaurant. It's basically like you are going out to dinner but from the comfort of your couch. It's a win win in my book. Think of a movie that they love or a game they love to play and plan it into their night. A date night in doesn't have to be boring. 

Surprise Vacation

If it's a big anniversary like five, ten, or even fifteen - think about planning a surprise vacation. Of course, you will have to think of your budget and your allowed time off but your options are truly endless. You can spend the weekend up in Maine enjoying the ocean views or a week somewhere tropical in the sun. If there is a place they have been dreaming of going or a place the two of you have on your bucket list, see if that will fit into your schedule! It is always a good idea to spend some alone time relaxing with your partner. 

Boudoir Album

Surprise your sweetie with a sexy or sweet boudoir album. You will have to plan the session a few months in advance to get the album by your anniversary date but they will be absolutely blown away. It is a guaranteed jaw dropper. if you have anything meaningful between the two of you, like wedding rings, a blanket, etc. bring it to the shoot! You can use it as a fun prop and the session will become so much more meaningful.
