Getting Creative on Your 17th Anniversary

Anniversary Gifts for Year 17
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. -Mignon McLaughlin
The 17th anniversary isn’t very exciting as far as gifting goes. There is no traditional gift or traditional flower for this anniversary, but seventeen years is still more than worth celebrating. Congratulations on 17 years’ worth of falling in love with one another. Falling out of love occurs for many couples, but it seems like the most successful pairs know what it takes to fall back in. This year, fall in love with each other all over again by promoting a little romance with the gifts and activities you choose. Here are a few gift ideas to get you started…

Traditional: No traditional 17th anniversary gift
Contemporary: Furniture
Flower: No traditional 17th anniversary flower

As you can see, 17th anniversary traditional gift ideas are lacking, so this leaves you plenty of room to get creative! There are plenty of ways to create with furniture. Choose to redecorate with a brand new living room set, remodel the kitchen, or revamp the master bedroom. Whatever project you decide to tackle is sure to add new color and interesting textures to the home you share. Take on this new task together and work as a team to breathe new life into your home décor.

If large-scale renovation isn’t on your budget or something interesting to the both of you, a discussion about furniture may result in some creative ideas. Would a new patio set add something pleasant to your summer? What about a new garden bench or some outdoor furniture for the porch? Is the dining room table in need of restoration, or would a larger table better accommodate for guests? Brainstorm ideas for furniture that would be exciting or useful for the both and you to come up with something new and fresh that tickles each of your fancies!

Dozen Yellow Designer Long Stem RosesWith no traditional flower idea, there is another chance here for a hubby to get creative for his wife. A gorgeous bouquet of her favorite flowers is always a winner, or an ever popular Gold Rose from Arttowngifts.com. These stunning 24kt gold roses are perfect for a woman who loves beauty. Flowers are associated with romance, and may seem cliché, but for many women, it’s the time and thought put into acquiring the flowers that means the most. A colorful display for the dining room table or coffee table is just the icing on the cake!

I wish you good luck in love this year. Falling in love can be a lot harder than falling out, but much more rewarding, and definitely more fun. Nobody is perfect and sometimes a person’s faults are part of the initial attraction and feeling of falling. Add a few years, and those imperfections begin to ride on our nerves, right? Try seeing the shortcomings of your partner in a new light this year, and remember why you loved them in the first place. Fall in love all over again with the good… and the bad. Join me next time for year 18.
