You can’t help but feel accomplished when you see your marriage overcome another year of blessings and hurdles. Every anniversary is a cause of intense celebration. However, the twenty-fifth year of being together is a reason to throw a massive party!
Let’s be honest. You don’t know if you will be together next year, so it’s worthwhile to make the most of the good times and keep a wonderful memory of yourself for your descendants.
This article is especially written for men who want to make their wives feel special and loved on this day, even if they were not able to make more time for them before. We hope you receive useful and exciting ideas to have a blast on your silver jubilee!
1. Change Something
Have you been putting off that little ‘to-do list’ your wife requested you to complete over a month ago? This is the right time to complete tasks you’ve been putting off and remove the doubts she has about you regarding your commitment to her.
Surprise her by finishing all the chores that needed to be done. Additionally, change something about the house that will make her happy. For this to happen, you need to know exactly what she needs changing.
Try to remember if she has been complaining about how the refrigerator is not cool enough or if the color of the wall paint in the living room looks off.
Fix these things and even more if you can find them. She will never doubt your commitment ever again.
2. Have an Adventure
Planning to get away for a while for your twenty-fifth wedding anniversary? What an awesome idea!
Find a nice location to spend the twenty-fifth with your wife, somewhere abroad. Since you want to make it special for her, make sure to take her advice on where she wants to go and what sort of activities she would want to take part in.
You can plan to go hiking, skydiving, snorkeling, trip at Disneyland, skiing, and anything else she needs. Going on an adventure will make a huge positive impact on your marriage in the years to come.
3. Be of Service
You may be a philanthropist or not, but being of service on your twenty-fifth anniversary is going to get you lots of good karma and lasting marriage.
Rather than spending money on parties, you can spend on the less fortunate and people affected by disasters. Not only are you making a good impression of yourself in front of your wife and in-laws, but also on the larger society.
Instead of paying for your own dinner, organize a dinner party for the less fortunate. If you are good at cooking, cook for them. Any acts of service towards others will come back to you by natural law and strengthen your marriage even more.
4. Renew Vows
It may sound boring, but this vow exchange should happen at the party you will organize for your twenty-fifth anniversary. Invite all of your near and dear friends to this amazing event.
For women, the vows are so important. She will feel reassured about your presence in her life as you renew your vows and put effort into the silver jubilee.
You two are likely to feel closer after the vows are re-exchanged. It will be like you got married all over again!
Party decorations must strictly follow the ‘silver’ theme for the silver jubilee. Shop everything silver at least a month or two before the actual celebration. It might be hard for you to organize everything yourself, so feel free to hire an expert for the matter.
Who doesn’t love gifts? Since you have been together for twenty-five years, who else can know her taste better than you?
There are endless options to buy gifts for your dearest for your twenty-fifth anniversary. But did you know there is a rule about what you should give to your spouse on each anniversary? Here is a detailed list of all wedding anniversary gifts.
Since it is the twenty-fifth, you should get her silver jewelry, clothes, or shoes in the color. If she likes,wants, or needs something bigger, such as a car, make sure you get that in silver as well.
6. Special Treatments
You probably knew this was coming. All spouses suddenly become extra nicer on anniversaries, don’t you think?
Regardless of how often you see your spouse, give extra attention to your woman on special days, like Valentine’s, birthdays, and anniversaries.
Start off with a luxurious breakfast in bed. Don’t feel embarrassed if you have to order from a restaurant. It’s all about the service and the intention.
Wake her up with kisses and cuddles and make her feel special for making it with you for so long. Put on some romantic music in the living room and dance with her.
Offer to have lunch and dinner at her favorite place. Give her all the attention that you have been unable to give her the rest of the year.
Some other anniversary ideas are giving her a massage, taking a bath together, playing romantic board games, taking a romantic shoot outdoors, wine tasting, recreating your first date, and going through photo albums and videos.
In a Nutshell
What you eventually choose to do on your twenty-fifth wedding anniversary is typically up to your wife. If she is outgoing and athletic, she would enjoy a trip. If she is homely and introverted, she probably wants to spend time alone with you on that day.
Whether she is an extrovert or an introvert, a party never hurt anybody. Since you want to make her feel loved, why not invite her close friends and family members to an amazing party?
But you also have to consider the fact that the twenty-fifth year has to be more memorable than the rest of the anniversaries. In saying so, buying her a car doesn’t sound so bad.
However, if you want to keep it low-key, any gift will do, as long as it comes from your heart and she loves it. Finally, we wish you the best in organizing the day, and heartfelt congratulations to the both of you for lasting ‘til the twenty-fifth year!
