Anniversary Present Ideas For Her

An anniversary, whether it be one year or fifty, is a cause for celebration. There is a tremendous amount of effort that goes into spending that much time with another person, and it is a great opportunity to give a gift that will show your lucky lady just how much you care for her. Here are three meaningful anniversary presents for her.

Spruce Up the Ring Finger

The wedding ring stands for the commitment and love you have for your significant other. What better way to lay the foundation for ten more years than to spruce up your wedding bands. Not to mention, what girl wouldn’t appreciate the sentiment? There is such a special quality in the symbolism of a wedding ring; an upgrade will be an anniversary surprise she will never forget.      

Spend Some Time Away 

Taking time away from the day-to-day stress and being present with your loved one is a great way to spend an anniversary. A few days away from the hurdles of life and enjoying a getaway with your spouse may help re-light the fire you sparked many years ago. No need to spend thousands on a lavish vacation, a stay-cation will do.  

Take a Night On the Town

Make a reservation at the best restaurant around. Enjoy your meal, order your favorite adults beverage (and dessert), and take advantage of a night on the town with your significant other. Have a meaningful conversation with your spouse, and embrace a guilt-free evening without the rush of life getting in the way. You may be surprised by how dinner alone as a couple can bring back memories of falling for each other in the first place. 
An anniversary is an accomplishment worth some pride and excitement. A happy and healthy partnership is the result of two people who focus some extra energy on being a couple from time-to-time. Disclaimer: whichever option you decide on may make the anticipation for the next one harder than ever!      

My #OneWord for 2018 is Peace

I designed this banner via
We’re on the 10th day of 2018, not too late for my 2018 One Word, I guess. This is my 3rd year of selecting a single word to define my goals and expectations for the year. In 2016, I chose Simplify and last year, I declared Happiness as my one word. And this time, I am choosing “Peace.”

Looking back, I’ve been in several conflicts and disappointments last year. Because of that, I can do recall how many times I got angry and lose my temper. It was stressful. Some relationships were tarnished. Good thing I was able to address those misunderstandings and revived the once damaged relationship.

With that said, my happiness goal in 2017 was not fully achieved.  Thus, I will continue my quest for a happy life this year and beyond.

This year, I will continue to nurture a peaceful, harmonious relationship with my family, friends and colleague. I will be more patient and calm.  I know it is difficult to hold our temper when things go wrong but I will try my best to handle things without agitation.

2 things I want to change or avoid:

  • I will avoid yelling to my children. There’s one situation last month that hit my heart so hard. I reprimanded Thea for a particular misdeed. You know what, Yohan ran upstairs and refused to clean up before bedtime. And then I asked why, he replied,  Ayaw ko ng nag-aaway na pamilya (I dont’ want a family who are fighting). It must be something for a seven year old to say that.  
  • I will avoid conflicts with co-workers.  I vow to maintain a harmonious relationship with my colleauges.  I am grateful that our department hired new  staff last year. Aside from additional manpower, I am  happy that they are all amazingly intelligent and kind. Swerte talaga pag mababait ang nakukuhang staff. Malamang mahahawaan nila ako ng kabaitan at maraming pasensya para iwas pakikipagtalo na hahaha. 
So that’s it, I already declared PEACE as my #2018OneWord. How about you, have you chosen a word for this year? Shout them out in the comment section.
Good luck and God Bless us always.
