Tips on Memorable Ways to Deliver Your Message and Celebrate

  • The most important tip is not to forget your anniversary date. If you are bad with dates, put a reminder on your phone and email so that you don't end up disappointing your partner with your forgetfulness.
  • Depending on a ready-printed card is so passé. So buy a beautiful card and write your own message to show your partner that you are willing to go the extra mile to make him/her smile.
  • Make sure to update your Facebook status to let your partner know that you are really happy to celebrate the first year of your relationship. Send a tweet on Twitter, and if you're a Pinterest romantic, scan your card and pin it on one of your boards.
  • There's nothing wrong in throwing a big party on your anniversary, but make sure that you celebrate your first anniversary by spending some quality time with your partner. It will show that you have a deeper emotional attachment to him/her.
  • If you are going throw a party to celebrate your first anniversary, it may be a good idea to keep the invitee list to a bare minimum of close friends and family. Don't take the chance of inviting a loud mouthed acquaintance who may utter a few nasty words and spoil the best day of the year.
  • Buy a gift for your partner. Even an inexpensive gift like a box of chocolates and some flowers will send a message.
  • If you are going to be at work and will only be able to meet your partner in the evening, try sending the flowers and card to his or her work. By doing this, your partner will know that you're thinking of ways to make his or her entire day special. If possible, take the day off from work.
  • Don't argue or fight with your partner on your anniversary. Don't think twice of apologizing and saying sorry to your partner, even if it is not your fault. It will make your partner feel a tad more special than he/she already is.
  • Don't forget to compliment your partner on how hot, handsome, beautiful, or pretty he/she looks. Compliments given on special days like these will be remembered and cherished for a long time.
  • First anniversaries are special. Regardless of how you plan to celebrate or not, dress your best because your partner is going to remember this day for a very long time.
