Wedding Anniversary Ideas

Romantic meal

This one tends to speak for itself. You can either go out for a meal or you can cook one for the two of you. If you have grown up children you could invite them round too.

Ransom letter

Send a ransom note to your partner. This is made up of words and letters cut from the newspaper. The note should tell them to meet you in a pre-arranged location at a certain time. You can then go to a restaurant for a nice meal. Needs to have some child care organised.

Go for a long walk

How far is the furthest distance that you have ever walked from your house?

Message in the newspaper

Put an announcement in a national newspaper expressing your love (this is a bit like a valentine’s message, just on a different day.

Theme Party

You could have a theme party from the year you were married.(e.g. Ruby Wedding could be a sixties party)

Hire a boat

A boat is a great idea. I hired a boat for a cruise down the Thames from Central London down to The Thames Barrier and back. We invited all our family and friends along. (Sent in by Chris)

Star gazing

If it is a clear night go out and look up at the stars in the sky. (Sent in by Amy)

Have a meal on a steam train on the North York Moors, they run special carriages with waiters. A fantastic gift with a difference especially if you’re into steam trains

Both or one of you will be back from work .. so preparing a nice food at home + Wearing the wedding dress + watching the video or the pictures of the wedding will be a good idea.

I think that will brings back so many memories..

How about having a magazine cover designed and printed with your partner and you featuring on the cover. Of course, its just for fu, and you can personalise the headlines to mention the anniversary and other personal details to make it really special. Take a look at this personalised anniversary present and you’ll see what I mean. Hope you like the idea.

Sky Lanterns can make it a really special occasion. You can even get Heart shape ones for true romantics.

Stay home and have sex

Thanks to Khota — September 16, 2009

have a cheese eating competition,the winner gets to lick cheese off the other ones sensual parts ;)

Thanks to huck — September 28, 2009

Suggesting sex as something special seems to be completely wide of the point unless you hardly ever have sex. Writing a letter, taking a balloon trip, going for a hike together, simply being more than on everyday basis is what matters. However, it is essential to personalize according to age, believes etc. We are all different.

if its been up to 5-10 years you could make a scrap book with all the amazing pictures of yourselves and write sweet comments beneath the picture to make your husband/wife smile while they’re reading it =)

OR if ur giving your husband a REAL aniiversary gift make a 6month sex contract: ‘FOR 6 MONTHS YOU CAN ASK ME FOR SEX AND I WILL GIVE IT TO YOU’
or however long u think u can do it for ;)

The longer the relationship, the more creative you’ll need to be.

Here are 2 great suggestions. Hire a venue with a roof terrace overlooking a city and have a party starting just as the sun is about to set. For music, hire a steel drum band and get them to play O Sole mio whilst you drink a champagne toast and gaze at the sunset’s reflection in each other’s eyes.

The second idea is to visit TCI, Grace Bay, which stretches for 12 miles. You can pick the best spot and have the perfect beach party with close friends and you won’t be disturbed by anything other than the sound of the sea and stars. Not many steel bands there, so you’ll have to bring your own if you can afford it.

Custom made coin medallions. Your face, your name and a message 3D machined onto solid metal and presented in a luxury wooden box. This is truly a unique gift.

Hi just wanted to say thank you for the great post on wedding anniversary ideas. I really enjoyed reading it :)

Thanks to bride wedding speech — January 22, 2010

Top blog. Packed full of some excellent tips…not sure about one of the comments though.. sex should never be demanded or just given as a gift. If my partner ever did that i would run a mile in the opposite direction!

Thanks for the blog anyway though.

Thanks to maid of honor — January 22, 2010

Really nice post. For an anniversary you may consider writing a lovely letter or poem packed with to heartfelt and meaning full romantic lines.

How about a This is Your Life Together book made up of all your favourite memories through the years? I fully edit your photographs and design the book to suit your requirements.

Please do not let off Sky Lanterns – a nice gestures it may be, but even the ‘biodegradable’ ones have a thin metal wire in them which doesn’t take the estimated 6-8 weeks to decompose – rather it takes 9 months and is a hazard to our environment. Follow this link for more info and for the countries that are beginning to ban them:

I own a small Chateau in France (very cheap off-season flights to La Rochelle nearby), ideal for family get-togethers and celebrations

Sit back and relax. Do something u both enjoy! The kids if old enough will probably plan something secret for u! Happy anniversary!:D

How about buying some soft and luxurious new sheets, scented candles and lingerie? Get the bedroom cleaned the day before then spruce it up with your new bedding. Think boutique hotel. Think ultimate romantic cliche – flowers, chocolates, champagne.

Enjoy a delicious meal, take a warm bath together then treat your man to you in those new undies.

Go travelling to exotic country!
