Love is a wonderful thing especially when you are with someone who understands you and shares your perspective of view in life. Now, sharing that love for a year is something special and deserves commemoration.

In this case, in order for your relationship to grow more intimate and loving, show him that you appreciate him and your relationship by celebrating your anniversary with brilliant ideas that will wow him and at the same time not run you dry of your bank account.

Here are some simple, fun and romantic ideas you’ve never thought of using, that will make him happier and, feel loved and special on your first dating or marriage anniversary.

1. Amaze him with your cooking skills

While both your schedules are often busy, you may often rely on take-out meals or going out for dinner. However, since your first anniversary is a special event, this is the time to surprise him with your cooking expertise. You can do that by getting out of work early and coming home to prepare him something he loves and make it a date at home.

Also, if cooking is not your thing, you can opt to take cooking classes and then amaze him on the day of your anniversary with your newest skill. Most men love home-cooked meals and using this idea will not only surprise but make him want you more.

So, rather than opting for take-out or putting together a couple of sandwiches, spice up your dinner and relationship with your kitchen skills.

2. Plan a date to explore his favorite culture

Maybe he wants to go to the museum or theater, watch an opera or a dance by his favorite band but he barely has time for that. Now is the time to be his genie and make his wishes come true.

You can book a special box at the dance show or opera or save a special spot in the theater just to make him happier. You could also enjoy yourself and probably discover your love for certain cultures that he likes too.

Showing him that you put his interests first on your first anniversary will strengthen your relationship with him while giving you a great time during the date.

3. Buy sexy lingerie and try new and fun things in the bedroom

Of course, this special day will call for some bedroom mischief when you come together to celebrate it. In this case, book a fancy room in a fancy hotel or bring the fanciness home. Then, take up the flirtatious role and wear sexy lingerie that will have him drooling when he sees you.

With that same confidence, tease him while trying new stuff you haven’t done before or in a long time. Include some toys, new positions, and moves that will add a new flame while eliminating monotony in your bedroom affair.

As you turn from sweet and shy to hot and sexy, it will make the both of you have so much fun while increasing your desire for each other.

4. Plan a trip with no electronics allowed

Are you and your boyfriend or husband the adventurous type? Maybe you even met while you both were on a trip. Then your first anniversary is the perfect time to recreate how you met by planning a trip to a place you both want to go and surprising him on the travel day.

Go an extra mile and pack him a bag then take him somewhere he has always wanted to visit or a remote area. Then, leave your devices at home or switch them off when you bring them with you to make it a night about the two of you with no distractions. Then give him a night to remember!
