Updated on August 23, 2016

Make Them Fall in Love All Over Again

Whether you have been dating 3 months or 3 years—you will want to commemorate your anniversary with something special. The good news is that you don't have to spend a fortune on the gift. Simply upcycle things like old jars and fill with treats.

1) Talk Nerdy to Me

This is a super cute idea and doesn't cost the earth to make. Simply upcycle some old jars by filling them with Nerds sweets, and make your own label to match.

If you don't want to ruin their appetite, try filling a jar with sweet love messages to seduce them with your words. You can tell them what you love most about them, or write about a hobby that you love sharing together.

4) 6 Month Anniversary Card

Take whatever length of time you have been together and break it down into weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds. (Use google to figure out the numbers.) You can write it on a colorful page with markers, and this can then be framed if you so choose.

5) Number Photo Collage

A really lovely idea is to cut out the shape of the number which represents the years that you have been together. Then, you can go to town making a collage of photos of you two together to fit into the number.

7) Open When Envelopes

Go to your local dollar store and buy different colored envelopes and paper. What messages you place inside are entirely up to you. For example, you could even have a picture of you pulling a silly face in the envelope that reads, "For when you want to be cheered up."

If you don't fancy making a patchwork quilt, try your hand at writing your love story on a duvet cover. Then you get to read this every time you put it on your bed.

9) Bag Full of Treats

Why not buy a sports bag and fill it with some sports things? This is especially useful if your other half is a sporty type. Otherwise you could fill a bag with things of their favorite color, for example.

10) Reasons My Forever Started With You

This is such a fantastic idea. Get an old jar and paint a heart on it. Get a sharpie marker and write the message "Reasons My Forever Started With You" on the lid. Inside, place little notes of sweet nothings.

This is a very easy way to sweeten him up. Buy a box of donuts at your local store and write the message "Happy Half-Dozen" inside. This works for 6th-month, or even 6th-year anniversaries. :)

      The sports treats idea is a good one, especially if you can customize it for his sport (running gu, socks, etc.)
