#1 Go Away for a Weekend
If your anniversary is falling on a weekend, there is nothing like it! This is a treat in itself. There can be so many plans for the weekend when both of you do not have to go to work and just be with each other. It must have been a long time that you two have not gone out for a break. This can be the perfect occasion. Your anniversary is the special day when you and your husband can plan a weekend getaway to any place near your city.
Drive to that place, or book a bus, flight or train, book a luxurious room or a small comfortable hotel or resort and enjoy your day amidst nature. Be it a beach, a hill station or simply a countryside location; when the two of you are together, the place is just an excuse to get cosy and romantic! Just snuggle up and have a good warm time with your husband; away from work, away from all household chores.
#2 Spend the Day Relaxing at Home
Spend the day together. This can be the best idea of coming close to each other again. Modify your work schedule in a way that both of you don’t have to work on that day. Stay away from any gadgets. Spend time in each other’s arms. Talking sweet nothings and falling in love all over again. Cook something special or maybe cook with your partner, the dishes that he likes and the ones that drive him crazy. Play some good music. There must be some songs that you both share and have sweet memories attached to. Let that play in the background while you do the talking and cooking and relaxing at your home, in your zone of comfort.
#3 Spend the Day with Both Sets of Parents
Well, a reminder that it is the parents on both the sides that brought you two together, or with whose blessings you two are spending a good life. On your anniversary, celebrate with both sets of parents to double the joy of your togetherness. You could celebrate at home, with a small family party or go out for a day and celebrate it grand. But without a doubt, both sets of parents will love to have you two with them and celebrate this special day together. Seek their blessings. Let your parents be happy for you on this special day.

Keep it simple
Out of the box. Unique. Creative. Extraordinary. These are some of the latest catchwords associated with gifts, and while most of the world is scrambling to find the next 'hot' item, the classics are sometimes forgotten, and at the end of the day, most of us go back to using simple, regular, everyday things. Get your husband a simple, unpretentious gift, something he will use. Because sometimes, staying inside the box is a good thing.
