If you have been with a partner for years and years it's easy to get complacent about the roles you play in each other's life. However anniversaries are a valuable reminder for us to stop for a little while and reflect on the great joy and stability a long term relationship brings to all facets of our lives. Here are some ways you can show that appreciation and acknowledgement for the important role your partner's support plays in your life.
As relationships develop over time it's easy to get busy with the other commitments of life. Taking some time out of your busy schedule can be a great way to reconnect with your partner and give you a chance to reflect on some of the many adventures and memories you have built over the years. Why not head to a location that has a special meaning in your relationship such as a trip back to the place you first kissed or where you got engaged?
Many women like a physical symbol of the commitment of an anniversary. It not only gives them an ongoing reminder on the commitment you have to the relationship you have, but also served as something they can show to other women. A traditional symbol such as a diamond ring is a great "boast" item, but it's also lovely to include an extra symbol such as the number of stones matching the number of children in your family or a heartfelt and meaningful quote engraved on the underside of the ring.
A new project or hobby
Once you have been together for a long time it's easy to sink to habits or revert to certain roles. As an anniversary gift why not start a new hobby together, such as life drawing or hiking? Continuing to challenge yourself and finding ways to share new experiences together can help you grow closer together as couple. No matter how old you are, new experiences help to challenge yourself and find interesting ways to expand your horizons. A course to learn a new skill or start a project can be a great celebration of your journey so far, whilst still gazing into the future that lies ahead.
An anniversary is a great time to make a meaningful gift to your partner. Why not find something special as a gift that you can both look back on fondly such as a symbol of this anniversary?Share
