Since then, the restaurant has shut down, and the place where we went stargazing is no longer accessible.

Another idea is for each person to make a CD to share with the other. My husband and I just celebrated our fourth anniversary.

And yet again, we went out to a restaurant, which was great, but dining out is nothing new or particularly exciting.

Try to recreate your first married meal with your spouse.

Work together to choose recipes, go shopping for the ingredients, and cook as a team.

For those of you who are really ambitious, try recreating your wedding cake.

If you are not married and celebrating a dating anniversary, try to cook what you ate on your first date.

For example, the gift for the first year is traditionally paper.

Consider giving your spouse stationery you have customized, a book, a love letter, or anything else associated with paper. There is also a modern anniversary gift for each year.

My wedding dinner included an elegant tomato salad and chicken piccata – not something I would normally take the time to make at home!

Making it with my husband would certainly be a fun challenge.
