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?

anniversary ideas

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!

e) Picnic in nature

If you can’t celebrate your anniversary properly and you are held back by business or work, then this is a good reason to arrange at least a small party, go out of town, and have a picnic. It won’t take much time, but you will rest, breathe fresh air, and return home with renewed vigor.

f)  Extreme

Joint adventures strengthen feelings and help you see your chosen one from new sides. Have an extreme date on your 3rd year dating anniversary – maybe it will be the beginning of a new hobby together! And if you want not only extreme but also romance, choose one-day hikes in beautiful places with gatherings around the fire or a flight in a hot air balloon.

g)  A walk at memorable places

To literally recreate the atmosphere of your first date, take a walk around the places you visited that day. Order dinner at the restaurant where the first date was held. Open the bottle of wine to remember the taste and watch the photos that you took on your first date. It will turn out even more interesting if you arrange a walk along the romantic route in the form of a quest.

h)  Stylized photo session

Anniversary is the best excuse to fill your photo album with new photos. For many couples, conducting such photo sessions is becoming a good tradition: watching how you yourself change, how your relationship grows is priceless!

i)  Joint spa treatments

Let your woman rest in body and soul. Nowadays, spa treatments are popular: massage and body care for two. Spend the day at the thermal center or have fun at the water park. And if we talk about a home celebration, then taking a fragrant bubble bath, where instead of bright light, you light candles, will give you relaxation.

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!

1) Present your loved one a lock of love – a symbol of lovers and faithful companions. Bring a gift with a girl to a bridge or a lantern. Snap it and throw the key into the water. A kind of magic ritual will not only strengthen relationships but also give a lot of pleasant emotions.

2) A bunch of balloons filled with helium. When buying balloons, you can abandon the classic forms. Balloons can be in the shape of a heart, with romantic inscriptions, or in the shape of a bouquet.

3) Scratch map of the world. Its main difference from a regular wall card is the presence of an erasable layer. In this way, you can mark those countries that you have already visited together. This gift may become an interior decoration and is also a great reminder of joint travels.

4) You can present your woman a paired pendant in the form of a puzzle or a heart. A symbol of two halves that can’t exist without each other - the perfect romantic surprise for a 3 year anniversary.

5) An electric blanket is a practical gift. If you don’t live together yet, the gift will be very useful. It will warm the loved one when you are not around. A blanket with sleeves will also help keep you warm. This funny little thing is irreplaceable on cool winter evenings.

6) A portrait from a professional artist is a wonderful gift for a girl. A colorful picture will decorate the apartment and provide a charge of positive emotions.

7) Favorite book. If a girl loves to read, then she probably has a favorite writer. A gift selection of books will be a good anniversary present.

8) Organizer for cosmetics. There are many options for organizers, which are of different sizes and made from different materials. This stylish gift will be a manifestation of care and attention.

9) Bath table shelf. An unusual and very useful gift. On such a shelf, she can place a smartphone and a glass with a drink, comfortably watching her favorite TV series while taking a bath.

10)  If a woman loves culinary arts, buy silicone bakeware for her in the shape of flowers, hearts, or a little Cupid.

11)  Smartphone. This is a good gift for a girl. We are talking about the latest iPhone model. This is an expensive and status gift. However, not all women dream of Apple products. Therefore, before buying such an expensive gadget, it is advisable to know for sure that the girl wants an iPhone.

12)  Perfume. You can choose the right perfume for a woman whose preferences you know almost perfectly. By choosing the right scent, you show that you are interested in the girl, know her, and are ready to please.

13)  Heart-shaped box with exotic fruits or original sweets. Put in a box what your loved one will definitely like, and in addition to treats, put in small cards with words of love. The girl will definitely like it.

14)  The classic version of a presentation for a 3rd year dating anniversary is a kind of romantic souvenir or thing that will constantly remind of the feelings. Such touching gifts are very much appreciated by women because they carry a certain symbolism and indicate the eternity of love.

15) Box for jewelry and small things, decorated in a romantic style. On this cute gift for a girl, you can make a symbolic engraving that will always remind her of your feelings. It is better to put some other small present inside the box (for example, a pendant or jewelry).

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:

  • always listen to your significant other;
  • decide on the place beforehand;
  • think about the gift taking into account his/her preferences;
  • prepare a breakfast;
  • be sincere and attentive.

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

In fact, the gift doesn’t have to be huge. It is important how to present it, what to say at this moment. You can go to an amusement park together and spend the whole day there... This will delight girls of any age. In the park, you can also buy her a teddy bear, and this really will delight any girl.

Girls really love when men really worry about their mood and emotions. If you make an effort to make your evening really unusual, then she will immediately feel it and will treat you in a completely different way! And the anniversary for girls is a very significant day that should go perfectly!

We celebrate it only together. We don’t give gifts to each other, but we always celebrate it in different ways. We can just go to a restaurant if I have a lot of work. If it is possible to take a day off for a few days, we go on a mini-trip. We spent a recent anniversary riding the rides at PortAventura, Spain.

My boyfriend and I celebrate every month, that is, we give each other gifts, we try to spend this day in some special way. Today we have 9 months together! It’s so cool! I don’t know yet what we’ll do, how we’ll spend this evening. I would like to have a picnic, but it’s cold outside(
