It's a fact: 10 years together is an achievement. You've made it through some tough times and are still strong. You've been through family drama, lost jobs or apartments, had kids together, and survived financial hardships — but you're still here. And that deserves celebrating! On top of all these milestones in your relationship, being married for ten years also means you've probably spent a lot of time apart. But if you want to celebrate this special moment on both sides of the coin—being together and being apart—then look at my top ten ways to do just that!
Choose a restaurant that you have never been to before. This will make the experience more exciting and memorable.
Make sure the restaurant is not too busy for your anniversary dinner--you don't want to be rushed through dinner or feel like you're in the way of other patrons' meals!
Check if there are any children around. If so, consider another location or time when they won't be there (or maybe bring them along). Also keep in mind that many restaurants don't allow kids under 6 years old anyway; ask before booking so as not to waste your reservation on something that won't work out anyway!
Finally: Romantic Ambiance! Make sure that whoever goes with you knows how momentous this special occasion is and helps set up an environment where romance can thrive by finding somewhere quiet enough for conversation but lively sufficient for excitement, someplace cozy yet open--and most importantly: romantic!
Anniversary Road Trip
When you think of anniversary road trips, you might imagine a trip to the beach or hiking in the mountains. But there are so many other options that can give you an experience like no other--like visiting a new town or country, trying out an activity new to both of you, and staying at an upscale hotel.
Go somewhere different: Instead of celebrating your 10th anniversary with another trip to Disney World or Las Vegas (great places!), consider going somewhere completely new. You could try visiting another state or even country! It'll be exciting for both of you as it will allow for some romantic time together without any distractions from home life or work responsibilities.* Try something different: If it's been a while since either one of you has done something fun together (or ever), then consider taking up something new on this particular occasion, such as scuba diving lessons or cooking classes at your local community college.* Stay somewhere fancy: If money isn't an issue and neither is time off work, stay at one of those fancy bed & breakfasts near your hometown because they usually have fantastic food too!
The first thing you should do is decide on a destination. You can choose somewhere close to home or go all out and fly across the country for a luxurious vacation.
The second thing you must consider is what activities will occur during your getaway. It could be something as simple as going on walks together or taking in some local culture, or it could involve something more adventurous like skydiving or white water rafting (if that interests both of you). The point here is that planning an anniversary trip should be fun! Don't worry about being too adventurous--have fun with it!
Finally, make sure your trip isn't going to break the bank by planning with coupons and discounts whenever possible before booking tickets and accommodations online so there are no surprises when checking out at checkout time later down the road once the date rolls around again next year...
Dinner on the Beach
For a truly romantic dinner, look for a restaurant with a great sunset view. If you want something more casual and laid-back, try finding an outdoor seating area to watch the sunset over your favorite ocean view. Or maybe you want to be near live music--perhaps even dance! If so, look for restaurants that offer these things as well.
When choosing your anniversary celebration location, don't forget about ambiance! A nice restaurant with good food is essential too (and if it doesn't have any of these things yet but promises they'll add them soon, there's always time).
Anniversary Spa Day
If you and your partner are looking for an anniversary celebration that will leave both of you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, then a spa day is just what the doctor ordered.
You can choose from many different types of spas--from luxury facilities with full-service amenities to more casual day spas that offer massages, facials, and other treatments. Some even offer couples' packages where two people can enjoy complimentary services together at discounted prices (or even free). You'll want to think about which kind of ambiance would be best suited for your anniversary celebration: if it's something intimate and quiet where only the two of you will be present; or if there are other couples around who might enjoy chatting with each other while having their treatments done!
Either way, remember that most places require appointments, so make sure yours is set up before heading out for this special day together.
Couples massage is a great way to celebrate your 10th anniversary. A couples massage can be done at home, but if you're looking for an experience that feels more special and luxurious, consider booking a couples massage at a spa or resort.
You'll enjoy the benefits of getting pampered by professionals while relaxing with your partner in private. Plus, it's an opportunity for you both to cuddle while someone else works their magic on those sore muscles!
The most important thing to remember when celebrating your anniversary is that it's not about the gifts or the parties but rather about celebrating your relationship. You can do this by taking time out of your day and reflecting on how far you've come as a couple.
In addition to that, there are plenty of creative ways (and free resources) available online that will help you plan out an anniversary celebration that captures the essence of your love for one another:
When celebrating your 10th anniversary, you want to do something special. You've been together for a long time, and you deserve it! These ideas are easy and inexpensive, but they'll make your day memorable.
