- Up Up and Away: Go
on a balloon, helicopter, or airplane ride over your city. Some
balloon companies run champagne breakfasts where you can toast your
years together as you float with the clouds.
- Celebrate your anniversary all day long: Start with
breakfast in bed or at your favorite cafe. Then do something special
all day ending up with dinner, maybe where you had your first date.
(We're hoping it wasn't McDonalds:)
- Go places you've never been before: Either for the day or a weekend set off for somewhere neither of you have been before, but always dreamed of going. It could be another town or village, an island, a lake, a pub even a museum or historic landmark. Combine it with a lovely picnic lunch or meal at a newly discovered restaurant.
- Or an event you've always wanted said you would like to attend but never got around going: Things you don't normally do such as maybe horse racing, cricket or other sporting event. Or even opera, ballet or a concert.
- Renew your wedding vows:
At a special dinner, a party, or with a few special friends renew
those vows you made at your wedding. This can be really moving and
- Revisit those "firsts": Make a
list of the places where you had your first date, first kiss, first meal
out together, first time you made love the proposal and so on. If they
are all local you could spend the day visiting each one. Or pick out one first location and make that the focus of the anniversary either for the day or a weekend.
- Spa together:
There are spa packages that include massage and all sorts of lovey
luxurious treatments and are specially tailored for couples. You lie
back and get renewed and revitalized together.
These are a few of our suggestions, so now over to you - we're sure you have some to share.
