Wife: Hi Honey. Do come home early today.
Husband: But why? Anything urgent? I have back to back meetings too.
Wife: You don’t remember what day it is today?
Husband: No. What is it?
Oh My God! You forgot your anniversary again, didn’t you? That’s two years in a row. Well, let bygones be bygones! Take a deep breath and hear us out. God might not be able to come to save you on time but we can. Out of all days, an anniversary is one such special day when your partner will demand (not obviously though) something unique from you. The celebration doesn’t have to be splendorous but you can do at least something that says, ‘you mean the world to me.’ Here’s how to make up for not remembering your anniversary and save yourself from your beloved’s anger.
Throw a Last-Minute Surprise Party
If the day is still up, why not? We understand it can be daunting but if you are able to pull off a last-minute party successfully, you will be conferred with the title of ‘Best Hubby’. Connect with a few of your close friends, acquaintances and family members to assist you. While you take care of the party supplies, some will take care of the decor and so on. Top up the occasion by surprising her with adorable anniversary gifts or saying out loud a speech that will move her and make her feel the luckiest wife by forgetting your crime.
Shower Her with Love
To err is human! In lieu of the missed anniversary, take an honest moment of forgetfulness. Apologise genuinely and handle the situation calmly. Choose words that express your regret and make up for not remembering your anniversary by giving her your undivided attention and love. Smother her with hugs and kisses. Flatter her (on an honest note). You could even get her a gift that she has been eyeing for a long time. All these things will distract her from being mad at you.
Go Overboard with Gifts
The ultimate way to make up for not remembering your anniversary is to go overboard with the gifts that will give the feeling of elation and exhilaration. If she is a fashionista, get her a one-piece dress. Or if she is a K-pop fan, how about surprising her with music concert tickets and watching her scream with joy? You can also woo her with shopping gift vouchers or chic and stylish accessories. Here are some premium gift ideas to make your anniversary memorable. Besides, flowers, cake, chocolate and other gifts still hold the utmost regard as they had 10 years ago. You can give any of these sorry gifts for a special romantic touch. Also, how about a personalised ‘I am sorry’ cake?
Get a Tattoo
You can express your love and let the world know how much you love your partner with a tattoo of your spouse name or your anniversary date. It will be a gift of a lifetime that will be cherished forever. You both can get creative couple tattoos too. They are meaningful, symbolise togetherness and are a special way to express love. Also, if you have a fear of needles, you can get a fake one too (*smirks).
A Trip for Two
Your actions speak louder than your words. When saying sorry and lovey-dovey talks won’t help plan a getaway with your partner-doesn’t matter short or long to make up for not remembering your anniversary. This will give you a much-needed break from the day-to-day things life throws and focus back on the relationship. Just get some alone time!
All the aforementioned ideas will help you make up for not remembering your anniversary and save you from that puffed-up face. Apart from this you can also consider anniversary gifts for her to make this day extra special.
