Whether it’s your first wedding anniversary or your 50th, it deserves to be recognized. Just think about the journey you have taken with your life partner. I am sure you have experienced this life together and you have stuck together through the good and the bad; and you are still standing. Your marriage is your most sacred relationship and everything you do to pour into it matters. So, yes finding a way, a fun way, to celebrate is a must.
Idea #1: Make Home Feel Special
The last thing you likely want to do is celebrate your anniversary at home; you’ve been home for over a year now, I get it. But staying home doesn’t have to mean boring or typical. There are ways to make your anniversary fun. You can turn your home into whatever vision you have for celebrating your anniversary. Think about where you would go if you could, and transform your home into that. I’m talking about moving the furniture and bringing in decor that creates the type of atmosphere you envision. It could be your favorite restaurant or a vacation destination that brings you happy memories or one that you would like to explore; use items that will make your home feel just like that space. In addition to the physical space, also allow your minds to travel there as well and enjoy. Don’t forget you can also take virtual tours of places you’d like to visit.
Idea #2: Use the Nearest Park
If you do feel the need to venture out, use the open space near you. A nearby park can be a great place to celebrate an anniversary. Bring your blanket, your food, and music, and enjoy a romantic picnic. If you’d like, you can also host a socially distant picnic celebration with a small group of friends and family, where everyone can bring their own blankets and food. There are a few other fun things to do in the park like taking a romantic walk (where there is hand-holding and moments to kiss), reading a sexy novel to one another, riding your bikes, and playing outdoor games. There are tons of ways to make your anniversary fun.
Idea #3: Movie Marathon
The one thing we have all discovered while being home is that there is a ton of great TV to watch. The 3rd tip out of the 7 fun ways to celebrate your anniversary is by having a movie marathon. You and your spouse can pick your genre, grab your popcorn and snacks, set up your cozy space, and start the marathon. Prior to starting, you can also get creative around how you watch the movies. Maybe, you kiss every time someone says the word marriage or love in the movie. Or put a wager on what might happen in the movies and create some steamy consequences for what the loser of the wager has to do. Whatever you both decide for your movie marathon, look for ways to make it fun.
Idea #4: Private Paint and Sip Party
You have likely seen the paint and sip parties that were popping up everywhere. Well, think about having your own party for just you and your spouse. All you need is paint, brushes, a canvas, and your favorite cocktails. You can look online for a painting tutorial or even wing it by trying to emulate a painting you both admire. There is also some creativity that can happen around the “sip” portion of paint and sip by creating a brand new signature cocktail, just for the two of you. There are so many creative ways to make your anniversary fun and enjoyable.
Idea #5: Sexy Game Night with a Twist
There is nothing hotter than a sexy game night for couples. You and your spouse can actually use whatever games you already have in your home and turn them into something a bit more romantic. For example, try naked Twister (which is just what it sounds like). Or strip Jenga and even an undress Uno could be an exciting way to spend your anniversary.
Idea #6: Spa Party for Two
Though you may not be able to actually visit a spa right now, you can create a spa experience right in your own home. Think of it as a spa party for two where you and your spouse can relax, relate and yes, release. This time should be used to cater to one other. Ideas for your spa party could include steam baths for two, full-body massages and treatments, hair washing, manicures, and pedicures, to name a few. Think all things pamper and go for it. These are excellent ways to make your anniversary fun.
Idea #7: Sexy Photo Shoot
Photoshoots seem to be all the rage right now. So, why not have one for you and your spouse. You can hire a professional photographer and select a great location for your shoot. Or, you can create your own sexy session by taking photos of each other. Get dressed up, or undressed and snap funny, serious and sexy pictures of one another, for your eyes only. These photos will be fun to look back on as you celebrate your anniversary for many years to come despite the quarantine.
These 7 ideas were just a few ways to get started with celebrating your wedding anniversary. In addition, you can also honor your anniversary by exchanging themed gifts, attending a virtual comedy show, having a private talent show, enjoying a karaoke night for two, or even finding ways relive your wedding day.
Your anniversary is a great time to remember why you said “I do” and more importantly the perfect time to celebrate the year or years of love you have been building together. There are still tons of ways to make your anniversary fun.
