Keeping a steady relationship is no easy feat. When men and women can be inherently different, misunderstandings are common and breakups are almost as likely.
Times have changed. What was traditionally grandpa and grandma’s approach towards love had undergone some drastic changing, often for the worst—developing “relationships” has gone so fast, it has become enfeebled.
When having to call it quits on one another is far easier nowadays than to bear the brunt of the trials of any relationship, to be in a mutual bond for at least a year long therefore is, quite ironically, an accomplishment worthy of anyone’s praise. (No, really.)
But while you pride yourself as having the right set of qualities to maintain a long-lasting, hopefully everlasting, correlation with the opposite sex, why not focus on the issue which truly matters? Say, making a celebration out of a full calendar of non-stop commitment with one another.
Yet, what better way to show on it than to memorialize the occasion with a kind of special gift fitting the event?
Dating Anniversary Gift Ideas
Gifts have a special way of making other people feel that they are appreciated and is the reason why it is commonplace in almost every meaningful event we have known. A dating anniversary, especially, is no exception. Here are some well-thought gift ideas that will add precious memories to the romance:
Table of Contents
1. Something Paper to Remind of You By
After a year of intimate relationship, you had probably already known by now whether your boyfriend or girlfriend has the knack for reading. If so, then finding the unforgettable gift should not be too difficult—just give her a book based on the author he/she likes and you will occupy her attention for a while, maybe involving you in it.
You never know, your beloved could already be painting a picture of you as the protagonist of the book you gave. If anything, that is a potential massive boost on your charisma.
2. Fancy Flowers
Sure, flowers can be expensive and just wilt over time which might imply being wasteful and of poor choice. But if there is one thing that history taught us about women in general is that they have a weakness in beautiful flowers. Is not it unsurprising that flowers sell, especially during Valentine’s Day which calls for it?
You had rather invest on something exhaustive but meaningful like a soon-will-be-wilting bouquet of real flowers than give something else but which only be left forgotten.
3. Romantic Runaway
When most couples are spending their anniversary together at a familiar place, be the different couple by developing new memories in unfamiliar places. Going on a romantic runaway with no one else but the two of you is not necessarily eloping, it’s just two individuals wanting more time together as you and your partner widen your horizons.
Got a place you two had been wanting to go to but could not for certain reasons? There is no better time to make it come true than during a meaningful anniversary date trip.
4. Get More Personal
There could be countless of options you can choose to give to your beloved but nothing speaks directly to the heart than a handicraft with nothing but memories in its constitution. You may not be the most artistic person, but with a little bit of creativity, an art form like collage goes a long way in making certain expressions.
5. The Effort that Counts
Being in a relationship should be a never-ending case of courtship. While day-to-day meetings with one another may tend to get stale over time, it does not have to be that way on a special occasion such as an anniversary of dating.
For any couple, a year-long of relationship celebration puts heavier weight than any other as it symbolizes an unwritten commitment between persons.
How do you, therefore, place significant effort for your boyfriend/girlfriend during this event? Why not a personally-orchestrated date which you yourself had put effort to set up?
6. Immortalized Words
When you can be anything during an anniversary date, be the gutsiest person you can be by giving a heartfelt letter you wrote beforehand. You do not have to be poetic about it. So long as it is true and sincere, the words you formed with an ink will forever be etched on the mind and felt by the heart of the one who reads it—your beloved.
