Make a long list for your partner of all the things you love about him or her. Be as specific as possible.

And you can learn how to communicate more effectively with your partner.
If the two of you are outdoorsy types or enjoy exercise, you might want to celebrate your anniversary with a physical challenge like a marathon. Or something more low-key like a backpacking trip.
Maybe this is the time to try a day of sailing lessons or horseback riding. Even if you aren’t particularly outdoorsy as a couple, this provides the perfect opportunity to get acquainted even more with the outdoors!
You don’t have to go out to celebrate. In fact, particularly if you are a long-distance couple, work opposite shifts, or are simply very busy, staying home can be a great way to celebrate your time together.

decorations and supplies for your special occasion. Once again, this is a very desirable option for busy professionals. Learn how to keep your partner coming back for more.

What did you like eating best? What movies did you love? Find a website with information on old television shows, music, and more to jog your memories.
It can be fun and intimate to share these old favorites with your partner especially when you find new and unexpected common ground.
Your one-year dating anniversary is a special moment.
