Three years together is a big milestone as a couple that you want to celebrate together.
If you are having difficulty choosing the best anniversary gift for your boyfriend, get creative with personalized and sentimental gifts.
I really wanted to make this anniversary thoughtful and romantic so I broke it up into two things.
The first thing I did was similar to his scavenger hunt, but we were already on Christmas break, so I decided to blindfold Aaron and drive him to all of the places at home that hold special memories for us .
When we arrived at each destination, I told him how that place reminded me of him and how it represented each stage of our relationship.
For example, I first took him to my high school because that was where we had one of our first dates (I took him to see a jazz band there) and I mentioned how it reminded me of the strong for our future; I am home wherever he is and hopefully we’ll get to create a home together one day.
I decided to write out 365 things I love about Aaron on tiny slips of paper. While I got him Pens tickets and wrapped it in several boxes with cute pictures and quotes, he sent me on a scavenger hunt all around campus!
To add that “fun” factor (and because I’m apparently really cruel), I hid each slip of paper throughout his dorm room for him to find. We’re still not sure if he found every single one, but he keeps them in a special box to look at from time to time. He gave me clues to all of our favorite places where we had different memories, such as where we first met, what class we had together, what dorm I lived in my freshman year.
Three years after that and I’m still amazed that I already had 365 wonderful things to say about him then and I know him so much better now. My roommate and sister joined me and documented my journey: It was such an exciting walk down memory lane and it was so thoughtful.
Here’s the letter I wrote him: Aaron surprised me with flowers and Michael Buble tickets. It was hands-down probably the most romantic thing he has ever done for me and I will never forget it.
