A fifth dating anniversary is a momentous event for both partners. It is meaningful yet stressful. “How do I carry myself? What do I give as a gift?” you may ask yourself. But do not worry. Your partner is already such a dear person; anything you do will empower your tandem and strengthen the ties you already have.
Why Is It Important To Remember The Fifth Anniversary?
People always ask marriage consultants and coaches why it is crucial to celebrate anniversaries and even remember these dates. The thing is, every milestone indicates how much you’ve gone through as a couple. See it as a marathon. While many runners fell off track, you decided to stay strong and help each other get through to a perfect life. Similarly, your presents and date should remind you of the time you spent together and the things you went through.
1. Memory Album
Sure, photo albums seem like a deadbeat present. That is because the majority of people do not know how to operate their memories. You cannot just slap a bunch of random photos you took together and expect her to love them. To manifest your emotional side and reflect on a path you went through so far, sort your photos into sections. Insert cards with flashy fun titles in between pages, forming different categories. This is how it should look like:
- How we looked at your first, second, third, fourth-anniversary date
- Your hottest photo (insert many of them)
- My hottest photo (you may pull a joke and attach a ridiculous pic of yours)
- Our dumbest hairstyles
- Funniest date
- Friends we love the most
- Friends who annoy both of us
- Our biggest victory as a couple
- The time you had happy tears
- Our best moment as a couple
You can invent any occasion and name each category however you like. Have fun with many ideas, and create the most special memory book.
2. Five Thank You’s
Think about five ways you are thankful for your girl. Because you celebrate a big date, come up with five qualities of your girlfriend and link them to a present. For instance, you may thank your girlfriend for always being so enigmatic and buy a gift for pretty girls to accentuate that. The results of a poll show that women like perfume and necklaces as a beauty gift (https://www.dailyedge.ie/anniversaries-4421905-Jan2019/ ). Make her a song because she is romantic, a concert ticket because she is interesting, a box of chocolate because she has a sweet tooth. Try to convert the positive traits of your girl into creative gifts.
3. Night Picnic
Many couples choose to go to picnics in the daytime, but you are not bound to do that. Turn that event into a romantic dinner with candles and fancy snacks. Bring cheese and wine, download some violin music, and enjoy each other’s company in peace.
4. Spa Day
Relaxation is key when it comes to long-term relationships. Just take your girlfriend to a dreamy spa day to freshen up and relax, especially if both of you have been caught up in the routine. Spa is a very sensual and intimate place because it involves candles, aromatic fragrances, and quiet music.
5. Recreate Your First Date
If your first date was remarkable, why not recreate it as a fun little game? Try to dress up similarly to how you looked five years ago, go to the same place where you met, and try to insinuate an awkward talk. Sometimes all we need in a relationship is some novelty. Try to bring back emotions and trepidations. Did you want to get closer to your date? If so, it is a 100% chance you’re going to reignite those feelings.
6. Fancy Restaurant
Sometimes all we need is a good dinner, especially if it is accompanied by a beautiful woman, relaxing music, and hearty food. If you like a laid-back evening, this is a perfect way to celebrate something remarkable.
7. Go To The Movies
If you want to feel nonchalant and unbothered again, run away with your partner to the movies. At times, even the worst movie brings you the best memories.
8. A Special Gift
You must know your girlfriend better than any other person on Earth. So all props to you because it would be the easiest way to impress her. Just give her something she has always been dreaming about. It may be a personal thing, like a notebook, or a huge present like a plane ticket. Either way, make it as personal as possible.
9. Book A Hotel
Even if you live in the same city, the same apartment or house for five years, sometimes the atmosphere gets a little stale. To get rid of that, book a five-star hotel with a Jacuzzi and a room service. It will instantly spice up your date.
10. A Rooftop Date
Even if you don’t have restaurants and lounges in your area, just make your own rooftop dinner. Be that extreme couple (but make sure to choose a safe place!).
