Making up for a missed anniversary

So many couples were not able to celebrate their anniversary over the past few months. Some couples are separated by a few miles while others are an ocean apart. So, when you finally get the chance to spend an evening together, you probably want to make sure that everything is just right. Here are a few things that you can do to make up for missing out on celebrating together.

Romantic blooms

Fresh flowers are the best place to start when shopping for your anniversary. Red roses are the number one choice when it comes to romantic blooms. Other red flowers such as tulips and carnations are also popular. If, however, your spouse has a particular favourite type of flower or a favourite colour, you can let your florist know what you are looking for and they can come up with the perfect design.

The perfect gift

As for choosing the right anniversary gift, there are two main factors: budget and preference. Before you start shopping, you need to figure out how much you can comfortably spend. Once you have a budget in mind, you can start searching based on the preferences of your spouse. Some excellent romantic gifts include luxury champagne and chocolates, fine wine and cheese, pamper hampers and delicious chocolate baskets. You can also take the time to create a special personalised gift such as a photo album, collage or a personalised item that your spouse can use on a regular basis.

Planning the evening

Once you have your anniversary gift picked out, it’s time to plan the perfect evening. Set your table, select your music playlist and light those candles. All of these will help set the mood. Choose their favourite meal for the evening to show them that you care enough to pay attention to everything they love.

While this anniversary may not feel quite like the others, there is no reason not to make it special. Since this year will be so different, you may like to make it even more memorable by taking some special pictures and printing them. It’s the perfect reminder that your love is more important than anything.
