Things to do on your one year dating anniversary
It could be something he's been meaning to pick up for himself or a new book you think he'll love.I've mentioned this book before, but Bill Bryson's is a fantastic travel memoir.If you're leaving in the afternoon, pack a cooler with tasty finger foods (crackers, cheese pieces, cut-up fruit) and sandwiches for the drive.You could also place a surprise phone order with a restaurant in the area you're staying in. Is it hard to surprise your dude when you live together? If you’re on a budget but need to show your loved one that you still care and appreciate him/her, these cute and fun things for couples can help you celebrate the day without costing a lot of money! Start by cooking your partner’s favorite breakfast and serving it in bed. Set aside your work, friends, hobbies, games, and the television, and give each other your undivided attention. Tell each other a story of what life would be like if you didn’t have jobs, kids, responsibilities, stress or finances to worry about. Take a cooking, painting, or pottery class together. Check out a comedy show, jazz club, musical, symphony, or cabaret show. If you can’t cook, it will mean even more if you go out of your way and try to. Ask each other questions regarding the things she wants to accomplish this year, what you could do to make each other happier, if there is a local restaurant or event your partner/spouse wants to attend, etc. Share new experiences – go sky diving, snorkeling, fishing, white water rafting, skiing, scuba diving, golfing, spelunking, canoeing, camping, mountain biking, swimming in the ocean, or take a scenic hike. Describe where you would live, your dream home, what you would do together, and how you feel about each other. Share a special dessert – maybe chocolate, strawberry, banana and whipped cream crêpes, champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, truffles, banana split and chocolate brownie sundaes, and Belgian waffles topped with ice cream, whipped cream, strawberries, kiwis, bananas, and berries. If you are artistically talented, paint or draw a masterpiece dedicated to him/her. You two can pick up the order on your way to your hotel/cabin/lakehouse and then enjoy a romantic (and tasty! Also, it could be fun to surprise your boyfriend with a cool activity once you arrive.
We live together so it'll be a little hard to do anything too epic.

She and her beau are celebrating their one year anniversary this weekend and she'd like to give him a sweet little gift but isn't sure where to start. We just received an email from a reader who needs our help pronto! My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year officially this weekend.
A number of my peeps have received this as a gift and they've all loved it.
A book would make a lovely and thoughtful gift on its own, but you could also pair it with his favorite gourmet (or not so gourmet) snack.
