Anniversaries are very special occasion for any couple. Whether it is the first anniversary or the tenth, couples in love always look for ways to celebrate their love for each other in different ways. For some, it is a dinner at the most swanky restaurant in town, while for others it is an exotic holiday to some remote place that does the trick. All such things do make the day special, but they cost a lot of money too. So does that mean that people who do not have sufficient funds, should stop dreaming about an exceptional day? Not really. Here are some ideas, which will not only make your day memorable, but make both of you come even more closer.
If you do not have enough money to spend on a far off holiday locale, you can opt for a trip of your own city or a neighboring one. All you have to do is to browse through the Internet or contact the tourism bureau in your city to get information on all the interesting places to visit and things that you can do, in and around your city. Once you have the information, both of you can set off to a trip to visit these places and have fun together on your anniversary.
When celebrating an anniversary on a budget, you are already short of funds. So splurging on gifts for each other is out of question. At the same time, anniversaries are considered incomplete, unless and until gifts are exchanged among each other by the couple. So, what you can do is make certain gifts at home itself for each other. After all, it is not the gift, but the thought behind it that matters. Men can make a homemade necklace for their woman by weaving in beads available at various craft stores. Although, they cannot replace a diamond necklace, yet your woman will appreciate the effort you have put in for making the necklace for her.
A way to a man's heart is through his stomach. So, what women can do is cook their man's favorite dish. Another most romantic idea is to cook a meal together and spend some quality time together.
Making a collage or a scrapbook of your old photographs, listening to some romantic numbers, and burning a CD of the same, are some of the other unique ideas, that you can choose from.
We all desire to celebrate our special day with people who are close to us, our friends and family. But, hosting a party can cost a lot of money. So, an alternative that you can consider is to have a potluck dinner, in which each of your friends and family can bring along a dish of their choice with them. That way, you will not have to spend much, and can still enjoy the company of your close one's. You can also consider playing some popular movies for your loved ones, or plan a party game and enjoy playing it together.
Most of these ideas will cost you near to nothing or extremely less, yet make your day really interesting, special, and memorable.
