    Hey guys, I have a big anniversary coming up and want to treat my boyfriend out for a night and do something fun, romantic but not stereotypical. Any suggestions or things that you´ve done in the past that worked well? Or any gifts that are good to give?

    I took an ex to see the Lipizaner (however it's spelled) stallions one year when they came to Nor Cal. it wasn't something I'd normally go to, but it was a lot of fun...

    You can go skydiving or hiking. I always find special occasions are the best to go do things you normally wouldn't do but want to do, but can't seem to find the time.

    Is there a circus arts school in your area? Nothing like a trapeze lesson to get the blood pumping and make you feel close.

    I always like to do surprise things/trips for the biggest occasions. Maybe you plan the stereotypical anniversary dinner at a nice restaurant (in a top hotel) and unbeknownst to your bf you've booked the Honeymoon Suite for the nite/weekend.

    A NICE piece of jewelry, even if stereotypical, is always appreciated.

    And, NEVER, no matter what else you do, forget the flowers!

    I think something that shows thought and care is the most romantic. Maybe do something to recreate your first date?

    You want them to get drunk at a bar and forget each other's names?

    (Just kidding, bmandrews)

    It's mostly past the tourist season now, so rates are cheap.

    What about a romantic weekend?

    How about finding a small romantic cabin w/ a fireplace somewhere out in the country? Most places this time of year will probably be happy to make you a deal for the weekend.

    Find someplace with activities for a short daytrip on Saturday, and maybe a nice restaraunt for Saturday evening overlooking one of the rivers or lakes. With the parity of the $ - why not a road trip to Northern NY and the Adirondacks - maybe Lake Placid?

    ahaha, it definitly wasnt like THAT square jaw. you´re close but not quite there yet. haha. thanks for the tips guys. im thinking that im going to make dinner (cause im quite the chef, if i do say so myself) and then just lie in bed and watch tv together because we havent been able to just relax lately. i like the idea of skydiving and doing crazy stuff but its cold in canada now so its harder to do that kinda thing

    If you want to do something home like that, consider going to a party rental store and get really nice place settings, linens, maybe even a small table and chairs. Maybe even see if you can get a massage therapist to come in and give you guys massages.

    Mmm nothing beat a couples massage! It's just as much as a dinner but does the body so good!
