An anniversary that falls on Valentine’s Day is truly special. Here are five unique ideas for your anniversary on Valentine’s Day.
Hop on a train and have a romantic dinner while you glide through beautiful scenery. Traintraveling.com has a whole list of areas that have special Valentine’s. For instance, I looked into one that cruised through Napa Valley. It cost between 94 and 144 dollars per person and lasts for three hours. This particular excursion allowed you to book online. Another option departs from Georgia Veterans State Park at 4:30. It includes a flower, wine and cheese, door prizes and dinner. The train returns at 9:30. There are tons of cities to choose from. I think traveling is a great way to celebrate an anniversary.
Make your backyard into a movie theater. Drag out beanbag chairs or comfy outdoor furniture. Then borrow or buy a projector. Try the eyclops mini portable projector from amazon.com for only $45.99. You can use a projector screen or a large piece of white butcher paper. If you live somewhere where is it too cold, you can always move this indoors.
Recreate Your Wedding
Have a simple private wedding with just the two of you. First decide where you want to have your wedding: the beach, a park or a near a river. Then, get a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a boutonniere for him. Recite new vows to each other. Then have a candlelight picnic but just not somewhere where flames are not allowed.
For an exciting night out on the town, plan to get appetizers at one restaurant, dinner at another and dessert at a final destination. For the first course, pick a restaurant that specializes in appetizers or specialty drinks. Some restaurants are entirely devoted to Tapas or small Spanish plates of appetizers. Then go to a restaurant with an entertaining or romantic setting. For dessert, finish with something spectacular. I think fondue restaurants are fun for dessert. If you are in the San Diego area try Forever Fondue. Or go somewhere with a lot of atmosphere like the Rainforest Café that has a delicious sparkling chocolate volcano cake. This jungle themed café has many locations. Finally, at each location, the couple can give each a small gift.
Scavenger Hunt for Your Valentine Anniversary Gifts
I think Anniversary Valentine gifts should be extra special. Hide your gifts and then give each other a sheet with ten clues on it. The first one who finds their prize gets to choose what’s for dessert.
