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

Romantic Trail
Leave your spouse a trail of rose petals leading to their anniversary gift or a romantic setting you created (candles, music…).

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.

The Classic Love Letter
Write your spouse a love letter and include one of these Unforgettable Anniversary Quotes

Romantic Photo Memories
Place custom-picked newly framed photos from different stages of your relationship/marriage around your home. You can even put them in chronological order if you know the order in which they will be found. You can place a note on each with the memories you have of the moment the picture was taken.
