If someone asks you, how many couples you know who have completed twenty five years together, I am sure you would not be able to think of more than two or three. Gone are the days when people vowed and stayed committed in marriages for so many years. And if you are one of those couples who still believes in the concept of being together "for better or for worse", then you are truly special and unique. Since, you are one of those lucky few who get to celebrate your twenty fifth wedding anniversary, the occasion calls for some unique things that as a couple you can do for each other.
Rekindle the Romance!
When you are together for twenty five years, it's a possibility that the passion and romance has slightly fizzled out. So, what better occasion to ignite the sparks that brought the two of you together than the twenty fifth wedding anniversary? Plan a romantic getaway for just the two of you. Take off to a resort on a secluded island or spend the weekend tucked in together in a hotel in some small hill station. If these seem too far stretched, you can even plan something at your place itself. Perhaps you can cook up a meal together and enjoy it in each other's company. You can even book a spa for the day and take massages together. Whatever that you decide to do at the end, just be a little imaginative and creative about it, to make the occasion really unique and special.
Make it Silver!
The color and metal associated with a 25th wedding anniversary is silver. So, whatever you plan to gift each other, include a wee bit of silver in it. When it comes to a woman, there is nothing in this world that can charm her more than a beautiful and exquisite piece of jewelry from the man in her life. Buy her a silver heart shaped pendant proclaiming your undying love for her or a silver ring, renewing your commitment to her. You can even buy a silver photo frame, put your picture in it and give it to your wife. Romantic and thoughtful gestures like these will surely touch her heart.
Women who are looking for some special gifts for their husbands, should remember one thing and that is - no matter what age, men will be men! So, present your man with the latest electronic gadgets in the market and he will be happy. You can also consider gifting him a ticket to a soccer match and watch it together cheering the side he supports. Gift wrap the match ticket or the gadget in a silver paper before giving it to him to make it apt for your silver anniversary.
Go Down the Memory Lane!
You have been together for twenty five long years! You two must have been together through so many things. So, on this day, recount all your memories. You can make a photo album with all your pictures together, right from the time when you started dating, to when you got married, to when you had children, and so on. A unique thing that you can do is to compile romantic songs from the time when you two started going out or got married and listen to them together, talking about the old times. Another thing that both of you can do is to write something for each other straight from your heart. It can be anything - a story, poem, or simple love messages. To add a special touch to these, write with silver ink and read out these messages on the day in each other's arms.
Anniversaries are the perfect occasions to express your love for each other. And exchanging such unique gifts is one of the best ways to show how much you care for each other!
