Inexpensive Anniversary Ideas

Married couples celebrate their anniversaries differently in their own way. There are some couples who strictly follow the traditional anniversary gifts to give each other every year, and other couples are fine with celebrating their anniversaries with a movie marathon. Celebrating anniversaries can get expensive depending on how the couple chooses to celebrate. Regardless of how different couples choose to celebrate their anniversaries each year, saving money is one thing to keep in mind. If you are looking for a way to celebrate your anniversary inexpensively while still enjoying your time with your husband or wife, here are some ideas on how to do so.

Inexpensive Activity Ideas

Every household has coupons laying around somewhere that are good for something. Look through your purse, wallet, and the mail, and you might be able to find a coupon that saves you money on a fun activity. For example, you might find a coupon to a romantic restaurant to have dinner. Or, you might find a coupon for a spa package that you and your husband or wife can enjoy together. There are plenty of coupons online that you can look up as well. Who knows, celebrating you anniversary can be cheaper than expected just by searching for coupons throughout your house and online.

Some couples take an entire week or weekend off to celebrate their anniversary. Those expenses tend to add up if the couple has been married for a while and does it every year. Instead of taking up to a week off to celebrate your anniversary, take a day trip to a nearby city. By doing this, you will still be able to get away and spend less money at the same time.

Inexpensive Dining Ideas

This idea is great for those married couples who love breakfast. Instead of going out to dinner on your anniversary, go out to breakfast! By doing this, you will beat the dinner crowds, save money because breakfast dishes are usually cheaper, and enjoy your favorite meal together.

If going out to breakfast instead of dinner is still a little too pricey or unappealing for you, then try serving your husband or wife breakfast in bed. This way you can create a meal made with love and enjoy the morning in your home together.

Another inexpensive idea would be to make dinner at home. Make your meal together, light some candles, and drink wine while the food is cooking. This is the perfect way to have a romantic and intimate dinner at home.

Inexpensive Gift Ideas

If you are the type of person who does not follow the traditional wedding anniversary gift list every year, then these next ideas are for you. One really cheap gift is to write a poem or letter for your husband or wife. This is a really intimate gift that most households already have the material for. Another inexpensive anniversary gift to give to your husband or wife is to create a playlist or mixtape of songs that remind you of your loved one. This gift can also be played softly during dinner to set the romantic mood and reminisce about all of the memories that were made in just a year.
