1 Get your partner a gift

This is old school but pretty important. We all want to remember our partners for something physical and tangible right? Getting him or her gift on your first date anniversary is really cool and will remain evergreen forever.

3 Make a dinner together

Before you begin to scream fire, I love food quite a lot and maybe that is why I always add cooking in between my date posts as you can see on my first date ideas post.

During the course of your first year relationship, you would have discovered your partner’s favorite meal. Why not plan to cook freshly prepared home made meal together. You can even make it more fun by getting all the ingredients you need from

The feeling of having to choose between recipes may make your anniversary more enjoyable.

Don’t you think the first year anniversary idea is cool?

4 Do a getaway day’cation

I have always wanted a getaway at Inagbe Resort with Bae, Money has been the major defining issue. If you are really ‘boxed up’ to do a getaway, away from the hustle. Bustle and distractions of life and all that comes with it. Why not go all the way?

A getaway gives you both the opportunity to rediscover yourselves in a place so different from what you are accustomed to, re-ignite your passion and get away with your sensual desires. LOL!

You say a getaway day’cation isn’t ideal for your one year anniversary date ideas? Think twice matey!

Okay Okay! If you don’t like a getaway Day’cation then you can do a sit home Stay’cation, isn’t it? Haha!

5 Where did we first meet?

Do you remember the spot? Oh, you did! How nice!

You can both decide to head back to that spot or scene and develop your fun from the queasiness, shyness, and whatever comes from you meeting him or her.

I would relish the thought with nostalgia if I were you though. A one year anniversary date idea you should surely think about! Okay?

6 Why not show some love to the needy?

As a demonstration of your anniversary of love and care, you can both decide to head to the prison, motherless babies home or some other volunteering opportunity that comes your way. At the end of helping others, you will sure feel good and happy that you have demonstrated the love inside you to others too.

Love is simply not about showing affection to one another. It is also about sharing the grown seed of love to others who need it immensely as well.

You can try this out and tell me how you feel afterwards! You will surely be grateful for this one year anniversary idea.

7 Go on a betting spree

I would prefer you head to a sport betting shop together and see how you can match wins with loses and make money, if not.

Is your partner a sports freak? Why not spend your one year anniversary putting games together and trying your gambling spirit out! You don’t need to put it a lot of money to achieve this, and you never can tell whether the God of Love will surely favour you with a win. Whichever way it is, you are around each other and have at least demonstrated that you can both achieve same in football on a piece of paper!

8 Go play a game

Hey, not draughts or chess but the real game outside your house. A game of poker in a bar outside your comfort zone will make more sense.

I sure love outdoor games, what about you?

9 A road trip won’t be a bad idea

Get out of town, just a change of scenery might do wonder on your first year anniversary. Why not go ahead and check out a new town together. I have always wanted to go to Epe town in Lagos, Nigeria.  The Ibeju Lekki axis has always fascinated me and I am sure I would take a peek along the way. I also learned the town boasts of the best fishes due to the various surrounding Osa River. You bet as a foodie, I would sure love to be there.

Why not check out the town with bae on your first year date anniversary together. This is a perfect one year anniversary date idea for you both.

10 You can even recreate your first date!

Where did you first meet?

At the restaurant, a carnival, the cinema, the beach, a bar?

Whichever it is, recreating it and reminiscing on what you both talked about, jesting at the clumsiness and uneasiness that came with your first date will make so much sense and create the vibes of laughter between you both.

11 Get into the party mood

Who says you need to spend you money to achieve a fun first year anniversary date. You both can decide to get into the party of your friends if it so happen at the same time your first year date anniversary is happening. You can get into someone else’s freebies though.

There is simply no harm in that. Get drunk and laugh the party off. It is all about synchronized together and fun anyway!

In a club, you can both dress like the night-crawlers and hit the club to dance away like there is no tomorrow.
