We all know that anniversaries are special. Whether it’s your first anniversary, your fifth, or even your twenty fifth, we at Craft & Oak have compiled some great ways on how you can celebrate an anniversary and make it as meaningful as it has ever been. Celebrating an anniversary doesn’t necessarily have to mean giving a gift, there are plenty of ways to show that you love someone without having to buy something. We have included plenty of options in this article, and we hope that they inspire you and give you some ideas that you may be able to try for your upcoming anniversary. If you’re not in a relationship - these ideas can serve as exactly that - ideas for the future love of your life. Onto the list…!

  1. Recreating your first date: This is a very cute idea, for couples that have been together for awhile, and want to revisit what brought them together in the first place. It also is a good way to show to each other how far you’ve come, and how much you’ve learned about each other in the months/years to follow your first date. Going back to where it all began can evoke feelings of nostalgia, and perhaps make you fall more in love!

  2. Renewing your vows: for couples that have been married for a while, this can be a great method to reconnect and rekindle the exact feelings you had for each other during your wedding ceremony. Perhaps there are some new vows you’d like to share, as a relationship is ever-changing and dynamic. It’s a way to celebrate your marriage, and maybe you just want a way to reaffirm your commitment to one another.

  3. Take a cooking class together: the way to someone’s heart is through the stomach, as they say. Taking a cooking class, as a shared activity, can increase the bond you have with your significant other. It might be out of your comfort zone, but the time you spend together learning a new skill with help solidify and reaffirm your relationship!

  4. Plan a vacation together: again, another shared experience but this time you can collaborate with your partner on all the fun activities and things you want to see on your vacation. Whether it’s a short road trip, or a trip across the world - planning it together will be a fun way to bond with your partner, and at the end of planning, you both will have something to look forward to - which can be very exciting!

  5. Celebrate with friends and family: of course, you should have some alone time for just the two of you, but it is nice to have all the friends and family that have supported your relationship along the way to be there as well (if you’re into that sort of thing!). This can be a great way to stay connected with their family and friends all while sharing an intimate moment with their significant other.

And of course, if after all this you’d like to commemorate your anniversary with a custom map poster of where you met, where you had your first kiss, or where you got married - we would be thrilled to hear that! At Craft & Oak, you can get exactly that - a custom framed* map print, or map of the stars, that you can commemorate your anniversary with. We do hope this blog article brought some inspiration to you, whether you are celebrating an anniversary or perhaps know someone who is about to celebrate an anniversary!
