Celebration is always exciting and…a little bit puzzling. If you live together for a long time, you must know practically everything about each other. It is fun to possess precious knowledge about his or her favorite color, flowers, PC game, and, of course, biggest pet peeves.

You can agree that celebration is all about details, and the longer you live together, the more attention you have to pay to each other’s interests. So, how to turn this romantic date into something exquisite and special? I want to shed the light on some of the best dating anniversary gifts for her and best anniversary dates for the 3-year anniversary.


First of all, let’s learn about 3-year dating experience from the practical perspective. Giving her flowers and a teddy bear? Nah, too shallow. You can date three days and give each other that stuff. A party with guests? I don’t think so, it’s just too boujee. How to avoid “golden wedding” solemnity but still keep it intimate, romantic, and splendid?

Let’s think of three main things: where to go, what to give, what to say. Here are some dating anniversary ideas :

1. Where can you go on a 3-year anniversary to celebrate?

So, if you stayed together for this pretty solid amount of time, you have to know whether your beloved person has some dream sights. Here is where paying attention comes in handy! Does she mention Disneyland all the time? Does he want to come to Comic-con? I would suggest you four possible destinations, from easy to advanced:

a) on a budget

If you want to leave great impressions so she will remember this day forever but don’t possess the amount of acquired money – no worries – you don’t have to break your piggy bank. Anniversaries and dates are mostly about people, not places. For example, a great idea would be going to the place where you met the first time (even if it was a metro-station). I am not joking, just play it off. The person needs to understand that you remember every single detail of your first meeting. You can go to an amusement park, to the movies or have a romantic picnic; you can stay at home and throw a mini-romantic dinner with candles and exotic food. The possibilities are endless indeed! Never fear to feel something simple because your mood and the atmosphere between you two will be a key to success.

b) classical variant

The most romantic as it is for lots of people, you can simply go to the restaurant. It will be more expensive than a picnic, but the sophisticated details will sure impress your precious date. Order high-quality food, wine, and ask if the musicians can play your intimate song (I am sure that every couple has one). The alternative would be going to a pizzeria or café. Come on, you will make it work. Details, remember?

c) fulfill his/her dreams

Being together for three years means understanding and learning. You sure heard your significant other bragging about some places where he/she’s never been to but would desperately want to try. Be inventive! Everyone has some dreams; even the quirkiest ones are easy to be fulfilled and have an absolute right to be done so. You can switch your fantasy on maximum. Try something romantic like a dinner on the balloon, scuba-diving, sex on the beach, or going to a nice spa-salon together.

d) travelling together

Three year dating anniversary is quite serious, so why not think about some romantic destinations? You can definitely book a tour to Italy, Maldives, or Sri-Lanka and surprise your lover with this trip. I am sure he or she will be screaming from the surge of appreciation and excitement!

2. What to present?

Now that we’ve talked about the places to go on 3 year dating anniversary, let’s think about dating anniversary gifts. Again, they can range from fun things from a dollar store to diamond rings. You know, a lot of things depend on a type of the couple. If you can call yourself mature busy people who know what they want from life, then you can think of something nice and luxurious, like a watch, a suit, a dress, or jewelry. These presents never fail to impress. If you can call yourself nerds, then you know like no other which game he wanted for Christmas. Be his Santa right now and impress him with a custom pack that comes with a book or merchandise. It is really fancy and nice. You can go practical and gift high-quality headphones, gadgets, and a lot of other good stuff that will come in handy.

Remark: never buy things for home like a set of candles or curtains, frying pans and drills. It is too everyday-basic and will be the reminder of the routine that you want to exclude for the sake of this special day.

There are small pleasant things that you can do on the anniversary. You can make a breakfast in the morning because it is intimate and just shows your affection to each other. But, if you do stuff like this on a daily basis, then good for you!

3. What to say on your three year dating anniversary?

Well, a lot of people ask this question and I am honestly surprised every time they do so. It all should go from your heart. Feelings generally are somewhat sacred, and they simply cannot be faked. Just go for it! If you behave reserved on the everyday basis, well, today is the time to express whatever is precious to you. There is no wrong way. Go for compliments, share stories about how you two first met, express some fears and desires – be sincere. You have a whole day to spend together and it is the day when everything has to accompany your romantic affiliation. Even spending the whole day cuddling is romantic if two people truly love each other.


Coming to the conclusion, I want to ask you a simple thing. What does the 3-year anniversary mean to you? Depending on this question, you will further guide yourself and spend this beautiful day with a beautiful person. In order to be less dramatic, here are the basic rules to spend your anniversary successfully:

1) always listen to your significant other;

2) decide on the place beforehand;

3) think about the gift taking into account his/her preferences;

4) prepare a breakfast;

5) be sincere and attentive.

I am sure that your celebration will be as good as ever. Be loving, smart, inventive and good luck!
