Unique and Romantic Ideas to Celebrate Your 7 year Anniversary
Relive Your First Date
Don’t let that special memory of your first date fade out, rekindle the romance that sparked your marriage.
If you can’t exactly relive your first date, if the place you went to is no longer there, glam it up. Find a sitter for the kids and go to that fancy new restaurant you have been meaning to go to.
Book a Staycation
If you aren’t able to book your dream vacation to the tropics just yet, opt for a staycation.
Check yourselves into a nice spa or a luxury resort nearby. Take this time to switch off from the day to day hustle and reconnect with one another.
A Paint Date
Make something special to commemorate your seven years together. Grab your paintbrushes and a bottle of wine and paint something special that you can adorn your home with.
Go On a Picnic
Weather permitting, making your own lunches (or dinners) and going on a picnic is a great way to celebrate your seven years of wedded bliss.
Seek out a scenic place that neither of you has ever been to before and roll out a blanket.
Make a Special Dinner Together
If one of you is the cook, recruit the other to join you in the kitchen for a night of cooking (and eating) delicious food. Make it extra special with something you don’t make often, like lobster or steak.
Make a Time Capsule of Your Relationship
This is a fun activity that you can do to treasure all of your special memories together. The time capsule can be in the form of a box or scrapbook. Dig out those old movie tickets and love letters and create something special with them.
Besides celebrating your anniversary, you can also exchange gifts with one another. Make a special memory with either traditional or modern anniversary gifts for your seven years together. Don’t fall into the rut of gifting each other things that you will never use.
