Normally I’m full of romantic date ideas..
But I’ve never made it to 2 years with someone before 🙂
I love that I’m hitting this milestone with my SO. Hes a keeper.
I think as a gift I want to get him wine glasses, he’s been wanting a nice set, but I didn’t know if that was more of a birthday/christmas thing (both which are also coming up)
Last year I made a scrapbook. Admittedly we both dropped the ball on working on it this entire year so I guess I could say it was a flop :/
I was also thinking of a small trip somewhere. We’ll be in the Atlanta area.
Any ideas for me?

Every year on our anniversary my SO and I go to a hotel in the city and go out to dinner/dancing – it’s our present to each other – we have been together 7 years this November.
Good luck 🙂

Nothing. We don’t really do presents for anniversaries.
We do make an effort to go out for dinner though – we keep it low key. 🙂 We are in November though, so buying presents means we have nothing to buy each other for Christmas.
An idea could be an experience you can enjoy together – a night in the city like PP mentioned, or a spa day, or a wine tour etc.

We went away for a few days to the beach 🙂 (our anniversary is in Summer). We go on a mini vacation every year on our dating anniversary 🙂

Ours hasn’t come yet and I’ve never had one before, but we have tickets to Furthur and we’ll have a nice dinner, and exchange gifts 🙂 I think some nicely wrapped wine glasses, a sweet card, and a bottle of wine would make a great gift!

We’re going to the Gold Coast (Australia’s theme park capital) for five nights… but to be honest, we only realised we were leaving on our second anniversary after we booked! lol. But our first night there, we’re going to Max Brenner, a chocolate place, for dessert – it was where we met for our first date, and we went back there on our first anniversary. Lucky it’s a chain so we can go there at the Gold Coast too!
I think if we weren’t conveniently going away, we’d just treat ourselves to a really nice dinner. We stayed at a hotel last year, but that was more because it was our first…

Nothing! Haha I always told FI that he was off the hook for anniversaries until we got married – lucky guy. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a relationship where we celebrated dating anniversaries.

@wouldyoukindlyy: It is our 2 year anniversary next Tuesday and I have a feeling my FI has forgotten which is fab because it will make my surprise even better!
I have booked a half day off work so I am going to go home and make the flat look beautiful and romantic. I will then attempt to make myself look beautiful and travel into central London where my FI works and wait outside his office for when he finishes. He will have no idea that I am there so will hopefully be suitably surprised! I will then take him for cocktails and then for dinner at The Ivy.
I love giving other people surprises so I genuinly don’t care that he won’t get me anything. It will just be fun to make him feel ultra special for the evening.

We didn’t do much since we were so deep in wedding planning. We did go for brunch at the place where we were having the wedding.
Our first anniversary was nice – we took a trip to Asheville for the weekend and went to Biltmore.

@ktcs: lol we’re the opposite, for the first year we celebrated every MONTH anniversary, including a hotel indulgence for six months (it was kinda a big deal bc it was our first relationship for each of us) …. and we still acknowledge every month! Today is 23 months 😉

If I remember correctly, we went out to dinner and then spent the night cuddling and watching movies.

I don’t remember what we did for our two-year dating anniversary specifically (it was a long time ago!) but our dating anniversaries usually consisted of small gifts and a nice dinner out.

We went to dinner and exchanged gifts. We got each other video games and books, and some other more personal presents.
Sounds more romantic than it was. Dinner consisted of groaning with satisfaction the entire drive home from all-you-can-eat sushi.

@wouldyoukindlyy: We went to a cabin in Leavenworth, WA. It’s about a 3 hour drive from where I live. I don’t know if there are any somewhat close get-away areas where you live, but I really liked the cabin. I almost always rent from VRBO.com (vacation rental by owner). They have some awesome places and most are cheaper than a hotel. I think we paid $80/night for a cabin fully furnished with dishes, bedding and running water right on a creek. Much more romantic than a hotel somewhere IMO.

If you’ll be in the Atlanta area, I recommend going to the GA Aquarium! It’s amazing 🙂
