Finish off with a romantic evening together

Take her to the place where y’all went on the first date. Honestly, it’s the little things that really mean the most.

If the first date wasn’t that great, maybe, let her have her favorite meal from her favorite restaurant. Good food is a great way to kick off anniversary celebrations.

After dinner, maybe, take a trip down to the local winery. That would be the perfect time to get a bottle of wine to continue this anniversary date at home, taking trips down memory lane.

Remembering all the fun times is always a good thing.
