I would cut out the movie (although I did see Venom with my husband, lol, maybe do that another night that is not your anniversary) and pick a really nice upscale resturant and have dinner there. Or maybe also get a nice couple’s massage.

If this is your first baby (so you don’t need to worry about childcare for another), what about checking into a local hotel? If your anniversary falls on a weekday, it’s usually pretty cheap for a nice hotel, especially if booked in advance. 

 

We’re doing a 5-day trip (5-days because if we do all weekdays, it’s way cheaper) at the hotel we got married at. We’ll bring up some groceries and some treats like chocolate covered strawberries (bought at the grocery store, so way cheaper than room service).

First year we did a day of activities – brunch, then went to an interactive play and then a local tourist attraction. Second year we had dinner at our venue.

We swing between something awesome and something low key. Last year we had an infant so we just did dinner and a movie (actually our first date since having the baby!). This year we’re going to dinner and Hamilton. I already am planning a big trip for our 10 year (which is 6 years away) but for less milestone ones I don’t stress about it too much.

milksteak :  Ah, yikes! We booked ours like a month after the wedding, so we were able to get really cheap rates. It’s harder to find last minute deals, but look on someplace like Booking (dotcom) and see if you can find a night near you. If you got a room for like $150-$180 that would still be enough to get a little bakery cake or some cupcakes ($20), some sparkling cider ($10), or some other treats. If you book at a nice enough hotel, you can always hang out in the lobby and do “drinks” (since you’re pregnant, maybe a 7up) and a cheese plate.

I always try to plan a unique date night. One year we went to an ice hockey game (we’re both fans of our local team), last year we went to Medieval Times (silly but we had a ball), and one year we took an overnight trip to my husbands favorite brewery.  Ours is next week so this weekend I planned another overnight to a brewery.  Guiness just opened up here on the East Coast and my hubby loves his Guiness so we’re taking an overnight down in the Baltimore area to do a tour and tasting and dinner out.  Our actual anniversary is a weeknight and I took that day off so hubby just asked I cook a special dinner of seafood as it’s not something I usually cook.  I’ll also pick up dessert as well.

Each of the two anniversaries we’ve gone to a hotel and had a turned up version of a date. It always includes dinner and a show. This year we also threw in a couple’s massage since we starte in town (saving money)

We’re doing a dinner date at an upscale restaurant and doing a paper anniversary gift exchange. You could book a hotel in a city near by and play tourist.
