Unforgettable First Anniversary Ideas for Celebration:



Read a Poem
Plan on showing your love with one of these Unforgettable Anniversary Poems or write your own.

1st Date
Relive your first date or the first time you met. Include as many details as you can remember!

Romantic Game
Add some sexy adventure and play a romantic game together.

Plan a Stay-cation With a Theme
A stay-cation means you stay home with a vacation state of mind. You can turn off the phones, leave the mail, and turn your home into a retreat for the day or weekend. Be sure to get everything you need beforehand (food, beverages, movies, suntan lotion) so you will not have to leave the house unless you want to. You can also have fun with a theme (tropical, winter villa etc.). With proper preparation you can have an unforgettable time without spending much money.

Write your spouse a love letter and include one of these Unforgettable Anniversary Quotes
