Relationships aren’t always easy, but having your best friend by your side every day is a wonderful feeling. Everyone that has ever been in a relationship, especially a marriage, knows that it takes two people giving it their all for the relationship to truly last. I still remember going to my grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary and realizing how amazing it is to spend 50+ years with the love of your life. It’s something that I would love to make happen in my lifetime (as long as my wife puts up with me). 


Which is why I started brainstorming some ways to celebrate an anniversary. Our anniversary date will be at the end of the month, celebrating 10 years of marriage. I don’t ever feel like I am great at giving gifts, so I wanted to spend extra time on this one to show my beautiful wife how much I truly appreciate her. And because I like to share, I have some ideas that would be perfect if you’re celebrating an anniversary soon in East Texas.

Remember It’s Not About Dollar Amount 

You know this already but remind yourself that anniversary gifts are not about spending lots of money. In fact, doing so can put stress on your relationship. It’s about spending time together doing fun things and creating memories.  


Show Love Daily Not on One Special Day 

Life can be stressful and tough, but your partner helps you through those days. Remember to show them how much you care beyond just your anniversary date. Just like Valentine’s Day, you don’t just show love to your spouse on February 14th. Hold hands, escape for a quick ice cream date together, those little moments are what life is all about. Here are a few other great ways to celebrate an anniversary here in East Texas.
