Lightbulb Anniversary celebration ideas please

Hi all,

I’m just after a few ideas to celebrate an anniversary with my g/f. It’s a monthly one and I’d like to mark it with a nice gesture / nice gestures.

Perhaps a picnic in the mountains or something along those lines.
Cooking dinner (not much of a cook, I might kill her )

Any ideas?

haha whoops, I totally forget things like that. Been with mine 6 weeks and I've done nothing of the like....whoops.

I'd just take her out to dinner somewhere nice.

This is one of the simplest things I have done this is the one that got one of the best reactions/appreciation BTW was for valentines day (which i dont really beleive in, too commercial and kinda tacky, but not to everyone!!! ie g/f, wives, partners etc...)

Hired one of her favorite movies, Favorite bottle of wine and a box of ferrero rocerres(sp?), (umm round choccies with nuttella inside!) and that was it, drank wine ate choccies and sat thru I am Sam the movie. TA DA!

See, pretty easy she had a great evening and cost me a grand total of $30.

Re: Anniversary celebration ideas please

A monthly anniversary, hehe ahhh i remember those days, dont even bother ey :) just go to the movies like you normally would. Otherwise she will expect a present/outing every month for atleast a year, then you cant spend money on your precious car

Take her to dinner, doesnt have to be a special place, even HJs is good enough... After a year you will look back and think why did i bother, as now i cant even remember the date is all started.

Re: Anniversary celebration ideas please

True: key point is the simple things can often be the best things and it really is the thought more than the actual place and time that will matter to her.....

I always like the mountain's idea - altho its kinda cold in winter.

I look at it that there are some nice restaurants up there ( Peppers resort has a nice bar with a fireplace etc - if your in sydney ).
Oh, and damn, you just have to drive the car for a couple of hours to get there.

Bugger :)

Otherwise, ( and it really is a drive ), there is a nice little place out of lithgow called the Tea Shack or something. Not much to look at from the outside, but the interior is done in japanese / chinese style, and you can sit at a low table in front of a full window at look out at lake lydell . . . They have all sorts of chinese teas, and sushi sorts of food... Not super cheap tho . . . ( but not too bad ).

Overall tho, Kooky is 100% on, most chicks will be happy that you've remembered, and gone to the trouble to do something a little special for them - more the thought and effort rather than the actual "event". But also remember they always seem to like to be able to brag to friends about how they've been treated like a princess / special . . .


Ah crap . . you're in brissy . . . ah well . . . Lithgow is a *really* good drive then :)

Re: Anniversary celebration ideas please

Take her out for a romantic evening at a scenic spot, or alternatively, if you're staying home, rent a girly movie that she loves, get some quality food/drink to accompany it, and get some candle & flower action happening (don't go overboard on it though, she might react illogically!). Follow this plan through (so to speak ), and then give her breakfast in bed in the morning!
