Bracelets, bangles, pendants and earrings – always worth considering because a woman can never have too much jewellery, right? Add an extra touch by engraving with a few sentimental words. Bear in mind what she already has in her collection, as something too far off the norm is likely to spend its time languishing at the bottom of her trinket box, never ever seeing the light of day. Why not try a heart pendant, silver bangles, engraved locket containing a picture of you, diamond studded earrings, or an infinity bracelet?
Take her away for the trip of a lifetime – here’s betting there’s a destination she’d loved to visit, but commitments and responsibilities have always got in the way. 25 years together is worthy of whisking her away to somewhere exotic and memorable. All your kids have likely flown the nest, or are old enough now to be left alone or taken care of by family and friends. So spend a few days, a week if you can afford it, travelling to a far off destination. If your budget is a bit limited there are lots of long weekend breaks you can enjoy, at various cities and sites across the globe.
How about a hot air balloon ride? – a great way to spend your anniversary, up in a hot air balloon. Floating above the countryside with your beloved by your side. You could start the day with a romantic breakfast in bed, and then take her out for the day with a picnic, keeping the balloon ride a secret until the last minute. Finish off the occasion with a candlelight dinner and a night alone together in a swanky hotel.
Enjoy some new experiences – after 25 years together you’ve probably got your daily life and routine honed to perfection, so spice things up a little with some new experiences. Take a look at what’s on offer at one of your local colleges, or browse the opportunities on various online sites. You could be thinking it’s about time you did something about your two left feet, or consider enrolling yourselves in a cookery weekend for two. Or maybe you both fancy trying something a little bit more adventurous, such as 4×4 off road driving, mountaineering, or throwing yourselves out of an airplane and floating down by parachute. The only thing limiting your choices is your bravery and thirst for adventure.
How to plan an Awesomely Romantic Anniversary Date for Her
Going out for dinner is popular with anniversary couples, but this anniversary we’re going to help you make it all the more special and romantic. After all it is your 25th anniversary, and she deserves the red carpet treatment. The devil’s in the details when it comes to planning something special, so let’s start with a few simple tips.
Don’t Just Tell Her About it – Send her an Invite
Spice the festivities up a little by informing your wife of the impending date by sending her an invite. When it comes to taking your other half for a special date, invites are rarely used, more likely you’ll just let her know your intentions over the dinner table one night. A great way to make the event more interesting is to send her a formal invitation. If you still have one of your old wedding invites lying around, why not take it as inspiration? Take a look at the theme and colours that were used, and incorporate them in your latest invitation. It doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive, you could even have a go at making it by hand. This thoughtful detail will definitely be noticed by your wife.
Get Someone to Take Care of the Kids
If you’re lucky enough, or some might say unfortunate enough, to still have kids at home, see if there is a friend or family member that can have them over to stay. This also applies if you’ve got pets. For this one day you want there to be no interruptions, just you and your wife alone together all day, and preferably all night too.
Unleash Your Creativity
You’re going to need to put on your creative hat for this important event. Think you haven’t got one? Come on, it’s in there somewhere. You’ve got to sit down and think about what your wife would really like. Would she love a night of dining and dancing? Or sitting in the back row of the movies, with popcorn in hand? Maybe she’d really love to have a go at bungee jumping, or a quiet picnic somewhere secluded is more her cup of tea.
Organise your date around something she loves doing, and round the day off with a romantic dinner, with lots of personal details.
What Kind of Details?
If you’re wondering what me mean by personalised details, it’s all about including the little things she likes, and showing her that you know and understand her. For example she might love a certain kind of chocolate, or have a favourite colour, or enjoy a certain kind of food. To make this date special you need to incorporate as many of these personal details as possible.
25 years together as man and wife is great cause for celebration. Spend it together or share it with family and friends. It completely up to you. And don’t forget to find wedding anniversary gifts for her that will be remembered long into the future.
