You just got married last year and your one year anniversary is fast approaching. You are so excited and because it is your first anniversary, you want to be sure that it is special. You want to do something amazing for your spouse so you are looking for some ideas. The truth is that there are many ways that you can make your first anniversary special and there are so many wonderful gift ideas out there as well. You will not have to spend a lot of money to make your first anniversary memorable or special but knowing some ideas can really help out.

Rent Out a Hotel

If you are planning your first anniversary with your spouse, one of the nicest thing that you can do is to rent out a honeymoon suite in a favorite hotel. Because it is your first anniversary, you should not hesitate to go all out. Find the nicest hotel in your area and book the room far ahead of time so that you are sure to get it. You can go to the room ahead of time and have everything set up. Get some rose petals and place them around the room. You could even arrange them in a heart on the bed. You could always get some tea light candles and light them to make things more romantic. Have chocolates placed on the pillows if you want to. Another idea is to have melted chocolate and fruits in your hotel room so that you can feed each other. Fruit and chocolate is yummy and romantic. Why not go out and get a bottle of your spouse’s favorite champagne and get glasses etched with your names on them to drink out of? This will be a cute idea and will make your first anniversary memorable.

Gift Ideas

Once you have your date night all set up, you can start to think about some nice gift ideas for your spouse. Your spouse may love flowers. A cute idea would be for you to get a bouquet of eleven roses with one artificial rose. Attach a note that says, “I will love you until the last rose fades”, and give it to your spouse. You could also write your spouse a song if he or she likes music. If you know how to play guitar, you could sing it to her. Jewelry is another great gift, always.

Making it the first year as a married couple can be fun but it can also be trying. You want to make the most of your first anniversary and there are many ways that you can do it. Don’t hesitate to go all out for your spouse. Making it a whole year is a big accomplishment so you should go all out. Now that you have some ideas about what you could do to make the big day special for your spouse and some gift ideas, you can get started planning your first anniversary. Congratulations to you both!
