I’m sure this has been asked a million times, but what do you guys do for anniversaries? Do you have any traditions?
We have been married for almost a year and I can’t wait to celebrate. We are going to do a brunch at Disneyland with the characters and then head to a NFL game after.
For bees who have had multiple anniversaries; do you do the same thing every year or do you switch it up?

We have a few traditions.
(1) We do the traditional year gift (paper, cotton, etc.) – the rule is it has to at least be part of the gift. For example, for our wooden anniversary, he got me a globe on a wooden stand.
(2) We take a photo together with the year number (1, 2, 3, etc.). We’ve done the number different ways – mailbox number, posterboard, number candle, whatever we can find.
(3) We try to get away, even if it’s just to a local hotel for the weekend. It lets use focus on each other and not worry about things aroudn the house that need done like dishes and laundry. Sometimes we travel, sometimes it’s local.

LadyBear : I love all of those! I really like the idea of taking a picture with the number of years you’ve been married. I might have to steal that!

We’ve only had one anniversary, but we’ve already discussed how we want to spend our future ones. We don’t do gifts for our anniversary. We do gifts for Christmas and birthdays so we don’t need yet another gift giving occasion. We get each other cards and take a vacation to a place neither one of us has vacationed before. I just booked our 2020 anniversary trip. I love that every anniversary is a new adventure, on top of being a special occasion.

We pretty much always go on a trip to celebrate anniversaries, we aren’t gift people so the most we might exchange is a card and then we either do a European city break or we just go to a country hotel for a nice night away.

Every year we go to Niagara Falls. We get an expensive suite, couples massages and have an expensive dinner. Then we go to the Casino and blow a few bucks…lol.
It’s just a time for us to unplug and reconnect. Since we got engaged there, it holds a soft spot in our hearts.

We were married on Christmas, so every year we get a new ornament in the traditional gift material. We also do a toast on Christmas in our wedding champagne flutes.

We make it a point to go to a restaurant we’ve never gone to before (usually a much nicer restaurant than casual weekend meals). This year our anniversary fell on Thanksgiving. We went to New Orleans (only an hour and a half from where we live) to have lunch in the French Quarter and then went to see the Saints game that evening.

Weekend getaways seem to be our tradition! Especially now that we have a kid, it’s super important to us to take some time just for the two of us to relax and reconnect <3
