We’re in uncharted waters right now. The outbreak of COVID-19 has transformed life as we know it. It’s easy to let the uncertainty of this situation overwhelm you. However, everyone must try their best to stay positive. Couples whose anniversary falls during this crisis should still celebrate their love, just in a different way. Here are three ways to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary during this pandemic. Your big day can still be special, even if you’re stuck inside.
Get Each Other Fantastic Gifts
You and your partner can still exchange presents, even if you have to stay at home. Keep in mind that the gift must be extra special because this is a milestone anniversary. Celebrating your tenth year of marriage is a lot more meaningful than your sixth. The present should match the occasion. Gentlemen, shop online for a stunning piece of jewelry that your wife will love. Make sure to do your research before you buy anything, though. Please, don’t purchase the first gold bracelet you see on the web. There are striking differences between white gold and silver that every prospective jewelry buyer must know. Ladies, you should also put extra thought into your husband’s gift. Consider purchasing him a watch or browsing a collector’s website for a piece of sports memorabilia. The more effort you put into the gift, the more memorable the day will be.
Romantic Dinner Inside
Sadly, a night out at a five-star restaurant is out of the question this year. However, a special way to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary is to have a romantic dinner at your house. The two of you can cook the meal together to spend quality time together, as well. Make sure the evening stands out by cooking a delicious recipe you’ve never tried before. This is the perfect opportunity to show off your skills in the kitchen. Don’t forget about the decorations, either. No romantic dinner is complete without candles. The two of you will relive your wedding all over again as you gaze into each other’s eyes over the candlelight.
Plan a Trip for After this Crisis
Traveling is incredibly limited right now. Unfortunately, this means no romantic vacation for your wedding anniversary. Yet, this doesn’t mean that you can’t plan your trip for after the pandemic is over. The two of you can spend your actual anniversary talking about where you want to go. Think big during the planning process. Visit somewhere new that neither of you has ever been before. That way, you’ll experience everything for the first time together. While you may be sad that you can’t go there right now, this crisis will give you more time to plan and save so that you have the trip of your dreams.
