- For your wife, you can get exquisite and sexy lingerie, top of the class. Lingerie is something intimate but also one item that needs to be comfy and sexy too. And trust me, boys, buying a hot pair of lingerie can make your wife blush and love. Try cirilla’s range of lingerie.

- A gift shows your care and that you listen to their needs, so try to find something that they will like and need.
Cook together and have a dinner date
When you cook together, it is fun and intimate. If you two live alone, nothing can be happier and memorable than trying to cook together a unique dish. Try a new cuisine and enjoy a glass of wine while cooking. Get romantic while cooking, play some music, and enjoy the moment.
Once you put something on the plate, set up a table, light up some candles, play romantic music, and enjoy the company. Keep your mobile on airplane mode and take a few pictures! Do not let anything disturb your alone time together.
Pack a bag and go on vacation
Plan an anniversary trip and whisk away your partner to an unknown location. Enjoy the privacy and intimacy of the various sceneries. It doesn’t have to be a long vacation as you can get away for two days or go to the resort for the day.
If it is a surprise trip for your partner, it is best to go for a day or two, so that immediate leaves are not a problem in their office. You can plan a big vacation later.
But a getaway is relaxing as you don’t have to worry about work or cooking or cleaning and you are just there to enjoy the company and have fun.
Enjoy a lazy day together
The goal is to be together and do things together. So, you don’t have to climb a mountain top to do that. You can do it at home, in your bed while doing nothing. Be lazy together, order food and drinks and dessert and relax and maybe watch Netflix.
If you want to eat home-made food or something a bit healthier, cook together, or prepare something beforehand so that on the day of your anniversary, you can be lazy together.
Recreate your first date/meeting
The first date you had or the first time you two met is a special memory for both of you. No matter how the date started or ended, it is imprinted on your mind. So, on this anniversary, you could recreate the date/meeting. It is a fact that you cannot recreate it exactly as it happened, but try your best. Pick the same place, order the same food, and then you can improvise it with gifts and flowers.
If you have the same clothes, wear them and take a before and after picture. It will be like reminiscing the best day of your life because you met your partner on that day.
Go for a long drive
Take a long drive to a nearby resort or a scenic place. The journey with your partner would be more beautiful than the destination. Make pit stops in between if you find a nice spot and take selfies. End the long drive with wine and some decadent dinner.
Go to a festival or concert
If your city or a nearby city is hosting a food festival or a concert, it is an excellent way to spend the anniversary and make it memorable. The food festival can be tons of fun as you try new dishes together and have fun without any burden.
