Holidays & Celebrations Anniversaries

What To Do For An Anniversary


Since humans started keeping track of time and days, they have also kept track of important dates on the calendar. Things such as holidays, religious observances, moon phases and anniversaries for just about anything are just some of the things that we kept track of and still do today. An anniversary for example, celebrates an important milestone in someone’s life such as the day you met your partner, the day you got married, the day you were hired for your dream job or anything else you feel is worth celebrating on a yearly basis. There are many ways to celebrate an anniversary for yourself and anyone else who was involved in the joyful occasion. Below are some ideas on what kinds of things you can do for anniversary.


For anniversary that celebrates a marriage, there are more options that just the traditional ideas that have been around. Sure, dinner and a movie or a home cooked candlelight dinner for two is great but its nice to sometimes do something different. Why not pack that dinner into a picnic basket and go to a place outdoors that you both love at sunset and eat your dinner there followed by watching the moon and the stars come out. Another great way to celebrate an anniversary for your and your partner is to go out of town. This does not need to cost much. Just a day or two at a cabin outside the city or a few hours away is a great way to get both of you away from everyday life and have a change of scenery for a weekend. Many hotels, bed and breakfasts and cabins offer theme rooms and honeymoon suites for anniversary and there is always the chance to find something new to do together when you are in an unfamiliar town or locale.


If its winter, try ice skating, ice fishing, tobogganing, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing for anniversary. In warmer months, spend a day at a deserted beach in the middle of nowhere, go on a day hike or go on a mini cruise for anniversary. Whale watching is always fun. If scuba diving or snorkeling is available where you live, that can make for a great anniversary for the both of you. Sea kayaking is another great option. If its warm enough, a weekend camping excursion can be super romantic and inexpensive. Pretty much anything outdoors makes for a great time to spend together as long as the weather cooperates.

Tips and comments

All of these are just suggestions on what you can do for anniversary but there are many more possibilities. Use your imagination, play on the things that your partner is interested in or what you think they would enjoy and, if possible, make it a surprise so they have no idea that you came up with such a creative idea for anniversary and make sure it is one that your partner will not soon be forgetting and will be bragging out to their friends for the next year.
