2 year dating anniversary ideas for him
The rule is that every song has to describe the way you feel about the other person. Buy them a ring inscribed with “thank you” so that every time they look at it they’ll know how grateful you are for them and how treasured they really are. Go back to the place you originally met and take a photo there.Make this a regular tradition for every anniversary and watch what changes every year; not only how you guys age but how the environment where you met changes. If your partner has a sweet tooth, order a special made box of their favorite color of candy, so they don’t have to sort through the bag. You could also make customized M&Ms with both of your initials on them. Plan a scavenger hunt that takes you through your city to different places you’ve been on dates that are important to you.
Make it so that it will be a time before you’ll have to waste time trying to figure out which movie to watch again for a night in. Put on some romantic music and play strip monopoly. If it’s chicken wings, make some in a bunch of varieties of sauce.Make an elaborate bed of blankets and pillows so you’ll be super comfy, light outdoor candles or set up twinkle lights, and make a popcorn/snack station to complete the experience. Surprise them with a boudoir album you’ve made for them. Get all the ingredients you need to make a bunch of mini pizzas and have a contest to see who can create the craziest-sounding but best-tasting pizza. Tell them to pack a bag and have everything planned so that they don’t have to do anything all weekend but relax and have fun with you in a brand new setting. Spend all night making a bucket list of 100 things you want to do together before you die. Make enough so that you can plan to drink a bottle each month for the rest of the year on a special date night. Stalk your partner’s Amazon wishlist (you can search by their email address) and without saying anything order a few items and wrap them up.Make concrete plans to be able to cross a few things off within the next year. You’ll surprise them with some things they want but wouldn’t buy for themselves. If you have kids, surprise them by getting a sitter or having a family member care for your kids all day so you can spend a lazy day stay-cationing at home.Get some yummy smelling oils and treat them to the fruits of your labor. If you’re dating a huge sports fan, save up and give them the experience of a lifetime by gifting them front row or courtside seats to their favorite team. Spend your anniversary at a local charity or do some volunteer work.You found love and what better way to spend delivering love than helping others feel some compassion and kindness too? If your partner is artistically inclined, buy them a sketch pad and some nice art materials.Ideas: a really fancy faux fur blanket, a remote starter for their car, a second monitor for their office, nice headphones, fancy socks/slippers, expensive sheets, high-quality coffee.
(Note: be careful not to do this with a tool or appliance that’s associated with chores! Find free materials online or order a book about how to do massage.
The beaches are not public so be prepared to run if you stop to soak up the sun. Take them to a planetarium and as a surprise, show them that you’ve bought them a star. Go to a fancy restaurant together and treat each other like royalty. Plan an elaborate multi-course meal of food they will love complete with romantic candles and table settings.
Order whatever you want from the menu knowing you will savor it and always treasure the memory of a night you two indulged together. Get a likeness portrait painted of the two of you based on your favorite activity to do together, or a meaningful memory you’d want preserved.
Something like a keychain, a passport holder, or a luggage tag will make them excited about the trips you’ll take together, even if you can’t take one right now. Something like doing an escape room, brewery/winery tour, or touring a historical location you’ve always been curious about but never seen up close. Each month, add a song to a playlist in Spotify that reminds you of a moment you shared together or just speaks to the way you feel about them.
At the end of a year, you’ll have a playlist you can share with them.
Make them breakfast in bed, order in, tune out all the normal stuff you’d be doing/thinking about at home (kids, cleaning, to do lists) and just allow yourselves to indulge in some down time together Netflix chill style. Buy them something really indulgent (something they would never spend money on for themselves) that they’d use every day.
