Good for you! You’re reading this blog, so that means you’re thinking about your anniversary. (That also means you’re not going to forget it!)
Let’s make this one extra special, whether you’re celebrating your 50-year golden anniversary, 1 year of passionate romance, or 16 years of steady love. Sure, you can do flowers and chocolates. Actually, you really should. But you can do even better than that!
Here are some tips to go above and beyond to get those sparks flying and fall in love – all over again!
1. ‘Just the Two of Us’
Keep this hit song by Bill Withers in your mind while planning your anniversary escape. Celebrate the two of you coming together as one. Spend some quality time with your honey – with no distractions.
2. Keep It Simple
Who needs more complication in their lives? Make your special evening something that:
- Flows naturally
- Requires little stress
- Is easy on the budget
After all, we’re talking about love here. While love isn’t meant to be a cakewalk, at the end of the day, if you’re doing it right, it should be one of the most effortless, enjoyable parts of your life.
Let your anniversary celebration mirror that simplicity.
3. Get Away for a Night or Two
Now’s the time to cut ties with the rest of the world (if only for a little while) and truly enjoy each other’s company. Get away from it all. Book a stay someplace special – perhaps a quaint PA winery B&B off the beaten path.
A great getaway should make your and your sweetheart feel richer for the experience. Try a place with:
- Seasonally and culturally inspired guest rooms
- A beautiful countryside location
- Relaxing, rustic accommodations
- Made-to-order breakfasts ordered the night before
- An on-site winery (and a complimentary bottle of wine from its stellar collection)
- Live music on weekends
- & More!
Only the best PA getaway locations will offer a Romance Package to orchestrate your budget-conscious escape for two. (Helpful hint: Remember those flowers and chocolates? They can also be a part of the package!)
4. Spend an Evening Under the Stars
Count the stars together. Out in the Western PA countryside, you can take in some of the most breathtaking, crystal clear nighttime skies.
What better way to connect with your sweetheart than sharing an evening under a starlit sky with a bottle of wine by a warm fire pit? There’s something truly poetic about savoring a romantic anniversary escape in such fashion, spending what feels like an eternity in your sweetheart’s gentle embrace.
There’s no light pollution to cloud your gaze.
5. Create a Dining Experience
Some couples enjoy cooking a meal together. If you find crafting culinary delights to be fun and exciting, schedule your anniversary getaway to include a cooking class.
Or let the house cater to you. Sit back, relax, and let the delicious meal come to you wherever you’d like it:
- In the privacy of your room
- In spacious outdoor seating
- In an artfully decorated café
(Another helpful hint: Dinner should come complimentary with a bottle of your favorite wine as part of a Romance Package.)
6. Sample Some Wines
If you’ve chosen a PA winery B&B, you’re definitely in the right place. Liven the spirits by sampling a broad selection of wines. You may have your own distinct wines of choice, but your anniversary escape is a time to be bold and try new things.
You may just stumble upon that one special bottle you both love together.
7. Get Active
Who says you have to spend your anniversary cooped up indoors together? Get out and explore!
The Western PA countryside is the perfect place for a nature hike in the picturesque woods nearby or the vast state and national forest land within easy driving distance. And you never know just what treasures and experiences you may find in the quaint surrounding communities.
8. Look Back and Look Ahead
As you gaze into your lover’s eyes, reminisce on all the great times you’ve had together. Then look to the future.
Try having a “dream session.” It’s a delightful couple’s exercise. Talk about your hopes and dreams for the future. Perhaps marriage is in your future. Or maybe you’ve already had dozens of wedding anniversaries. Either way:
- Discuss spending more quality time together
- Discuss that trip to Paris you’ve always promised each other
- Discuss how you intend to do these things
Treat these as promises you never intend to break.
9. End the Night in a Relaxing Hot Tub
Soak life’s stresses away in a private, in-room hot tub for two. The warm bubbles with soothe your senses and let you melt into each other’s arms. Then, of course, a comfy bed awaits.
