What to do on your anniversary

Your anniversary is the perfect time to celebrate your relationship! Whether it’s your first or your fiftieth anniversary, there’s always time to keep your loved one feeling special by planning some time together to celebrate your milestone. Thinking of activities to mark the occasion together can be fun but when you’re stuck for ideas, it can be a challenge.

In this article, we’ll provide you with some unique ideas and some tried-and-tested options to consider when you are planning what to do on your anniversary.

What to plan?

Firstly, it is good to think about what you enjoy doing as a couple. Everyone’s different! Would you like to do some sporty activities or would you prefer to relax and have a pamper? Perhaps, you have both talked about trying something new but never got round to it?

Now is your chance to book the perfect activity for you to both enjoy!

If you are planning a surprise anniversary celebration for your loved one, it is a good idea to take note of how your partner has been feeling recently. If they have been full of energy and want to try something adventurous then they may prefer to celebrate your anniversary with lots of activities planned. However, if your partner has been feeling stressed or low on energy then a relaxing celebration might just be what the doctor ordered, whilst earning you some brownie points!

Here are some ideas for fun and relaxing activities to do on your anniversary.

Plan a picnic

Take advantage of the warmer weather this summer and enjoy the outdoors. Pick a scenic spot, pack up all of your favourite foods, treats and a bottle of bubbly and head out for a picnic. Make it extra special by spending some quality time chatting about all your favourite memories. Not only is being out in nature good for the soul, but it’s nearly free too!

Relax with a spa day

Feel pampered from head to toe with a spa day – the ultimate in relaxation. We all need a little TLC once in a while, so why not find a local spa with couples treatments and sit back and relax together. Who doesn’t love to wear the towel robe and slippers? Relax, feel rejuvenated and put the spring back into your step. Check out Spa Seekers to find a spa near you.

Go on a hike!

Get away from the hustle and bustle of your usual day-to-day activities and simply enjoy the great outdoors! Get your walking boots on, fill a backpack and start your day by watching the sunrise. Find an adventurous hike to tackle and enforce a no-phone rule (unless it’s to snap romantic selfies or scenic portraits!). Pack lunch, snacks and a coffee flask for a midday break.

Revisit your first date spot

Where did you go for your very first date? Take a trip down memory lane to where it all began. Whether it was dinner or drinks (or both!), recreate the magic of your first date for your anniversary. How much of your first date can you remember and what were the things that drew you to each other? A smile? An awkward chat-up line? Remembering the early days can be a great way to spark romance.

Take a road trip to the coast

No matter where you live, jumping in the car and heading coast-wards can be a real adventure. Perhaps you have you always wanted to visit the coast together, but haven’t gotten around to it? Make a day of exploring somewhere new. Relax by the sea or try bodyboarding. Just make sure you finish up your day with fish and chips overlooking the ocean – perfect!

Pimms on the lawn

Could there be anything better than enjoying the British sunshine for your anniversary? When the sun shines here, there’s no need to jump on a plane! Enjoy a day on the lawn with a refreshing glass of Pimms here at Colwick Hall! Sit back and enjoy the beautiful surroundings Colwick has to offer.
