It is a given that as human beings, most, if not all, love surprises. This is particularly so when it comes to special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. In the matter of the latter, surprising your significant other on your anniversary serves as a romantic way to show them that you’d do anything to make them feel loved and thought of. Whether you’ve been dating or married for a year (or ten!), a surprise is a sweet gesture that shows them how much they mean to you. Plus, it rekindles your love for each other, especially if you’ve both been so busy with work and other responsibilities.
Aside from surprising them with the average – but beautiful, nonetheless – balloon bouquet
for your anniversary, here are other romantic ways to make your surprise for your partner a truly pleasant one.
1. Plan a romantic scavenger hunt
The key to a successful scavenger hunt is leaving just the right hints so your beloved will know where to go next to get the next clue. For example, you can write something along the lines of, “I love spending weekends with you doing our absolute favourite pastime.” This signals them to find their next clue somewhere near whatever it may be that the both of you enjoy doing together! While this surprise requires a lot of creativity, the end result will all be worth the smiles and unforgettable times.
2. Surprise them with a lovely dinner for two at home
If you’re not one to usually cook because you’re both busy on the daily, then whipping up a delicious dinner for your spouse or partner will definitely be a sweet surprise they won’t forget! Cooking their favourite dishes is one way to impress them on a whole new level – as the adage goes, ‘cooking is love made visible’.
To stay true to the romantic maestro that you are, don’t forget to decorate the room in which you’ll treat your partner to a scrumptious dinner for a more memorable meal. A couple of rose petals paired with our Heart Feather Balloon Mini Flower Gift Box on the dinner table is a simple yet sweet way to intensify the mood for that special someone.
3. Recreate the first time you went out on a date
Who could ever forget their first date? The butterflies in your stomach, the anticipation of meeting your loved one for the first time, the excitement and nervousness mixed into one immense feeling – so many exciting feelings were felt, and beautiful moments were created the first time you went out as a couple. Since anniversaries are all about celebrating your love and life together, you can surprise them by recreating your first date to remind them that you’ve come a long way despite all the obstacles! Doing so will surely take you back down memory lane, especially if you have been together for many years.
4. Plan an adventure together
If you’ve both been busy with work and family life, going on an adventure might be what you need to unwind and enjoy some quality time with just the two of you. It can also spice up your adrenaline, since experiencing an adrenaline rush relieves stress.
Fortunately, there are countless adventurous activities you can engage in, in Singapore. Some examples include indoor skydiving at iFlySingapore, exploring marine life at Adventure Cove Waterpark, completing the forest obstacle courses at Bedok Reservoir Park, and bungee jumping at Sentosa.
5. Get dressed up for a night out on the town
Most couples in a long-term relationship tend to stay in on weekends. This is especially true for married couples with a family to care for. Thus, getting dressed up and going out for the night is a welcome reprieve from all the stress. Besides, anniversaries only happen once a year!
Make your escapade more romantic by letting your partner know to get dressed in their favourite clothes and to meet you somewhere in town. There, you can try fine dining, indulge in wine tasting, or enjoy musical plays.
With these five anniversary surprise ideas mentioned above, you’ll be sure to make your spouse or partner feel like the luckiest in the world. And while you’re free to splurge on the special day, it doesn’t always have to be expensive if you don’t wish it to be! In fact, surprising them with just a balloon bouquet composed of balloons with a personalised message (which you can find plenty on our site!) is a sweet enough gesture. At the end of the day, your partner will surely appreciate anything you’ve put much effort into.
