When you start a new relationship there's all sorts of important dates and milestones to remember.
Between the day you met, your first date or first kiss, even the day you first said 'I love you,' each couple might choose a different milestone to use as a marker for their anniversary.
But choosing an anniversary date is small-fry compared to the stress that comes when picking out the perfect anniversary present for your partner.
Fortunately, in the slideshow below, we've rounded up 22 dating anniversary presents that are good for him or her.
My boyfriend, Jeremiah, and I celebrated our one year (dating) anniversary on November 10th. Different schedules, and long spans of time apart due to travel, and different ideas about the best way to spend time together can be deal-breakers. Go as long as you can without breaking the barrier. If she says it’s fine, because she’s not one of those “high-maintenance girls”, but you can see her eye twitching as she talks, don’t take the bait. Even if she takes it a step further and farts in front of you, it’s a trap. Like you find them valuable enough to go out of your way for them. When you can freely lift your hands and sing loudly and praise God side-by-side with your partner, you can take on the world together.
To my friends and family who know my dating history, it was a miraculous occasion. You’ll think you guys are comfortable enough with each other and your relationship is “there”, but it’s not. It doesn’t matter if you have dated 1 month or 1 year or have been married 50 years. Worshipping brings you closer, it empowers you as a couple, it creates a heart-environment for you to work through your issues.
I, myself, still have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I’ve actually been in a relationship for over a year. And it doesn’t mean you have to smother them in expensive gifts or elaborate dates. Women just want to feel like they still make you nervous and that you are thinking about them in unique ways and wanting to make a good impression on them. It levels the playing field and brings you both back to neutral.
I don't want to make a huge deal just something sweet. While the big-ticket gifts like gaming consoles or watches are fun surprises, I think sweet gifts are the most meaningful.A significant anniversary calls for a thoughtful gift that will resonate with your man.Make it something that shows him how you feel about him and that celebrates the good times you've already had and those that are to come.2.Or, put your artistic talents to work to create a painting, sketch or sculpture.Even if you aren't artistic or crafty, you can still create something for him.You don't need to make something perfect; a few flaws will add to the charm.3.
