A visit to some romantic spas and resorts in California just might leave you feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated! Instead of rushing around trying to travel and see everything you can in 5 days, spa vacations offer fun and exercise, pampering relaxation, education on managing stress, and healthy and balanced eating. When you arrive home, you really feel like you got away from it all, completely rested and renewed. A spa vacation is more than just a jacuzzi and a hotel pool. It's a total holiday idea, designed for relaxation and revitalization. It could be one of the best romantic vacations you've ever had!
Close your eyes and imagine soaring through the air, sipping champagne, and holding your date close as the sun sets in the distance. This doesn't have to be a dream, you can find it all on a balloon ride! Hot air balloon flights are a romantic way to spend time experiencing something different together and seeing the surrounding area from a completely new perspective. They come in two flavors; the popular sunset balloon flight and the less known, but equally fun, sunrise flight. For raw romantic appeal, I'd say choose the sunset flight, but if you’re morning people and just want to have a good time, the sunrise flight is also a lot of fun.
Believe me you have to do this. Lot of people has one destination in their mind which they always wanted to go. You don’t go because you have job, kids, money constraints or some other responsibilities. You might have heard from your partner that I always wanted to go there, maybe we will go someday. If it’s your special anniversary let’s say 10th, 20th or 25th whatever, this is the time you make his/her dreams true. Arrange in advance of that special trip, doesn’t matter if it’s Fiji, take Alaska cruise or a dessert jeep tour. It’s the occasion when you want your partner to feel special. Not only because you are arranging his/her lifetime trip but because you remember and you waited for the right time to fulfill their wishes. Do it and see the smile or excitement on your partner’s face. Of course don’t forget to click lot of pictures and record your moments.
You might have been married for more than 5 years from now but everyone wants to feel the same love for our entire life. And I hope you do feel the same love but sometimes expressing it in the same way would make this anniversary special. Propose her again with a diamond ring and just plan you planned for your marriage proposal. And ladies can dress red and book cruise dinner when you would like musician to play your hubby's favorite romantic song. These will make you remember the old days and you will feel refreshed and loved.
Sometimes we love to spend some time together and do nothing. If you both are a wine lover and like to taste different wines, this might be a good option as well. There are thousands of wineries so it does not matter if you have taken a wine tour before because you might not have tasted the same wine before. If you are thinking about taking a California wine tour, Napa and Sonoma Valleys are 2 places that will be high on your list! The attractive valleys just north of San Francisco are famous not just for the beautiful countryside, but for fresh air, fine dining, and a choice of romantic accommodation. California Wine Country is also becoming one of the top spa destinations in the U.S.
There are lots of ideas around gifts. You can search in Google and 20 websites will come up with anniversary gift items. But don’t just spend money and believe that you have that something extra to make your day special. Instead, you know your partner best, you know their choices, you know what they miss, and you know what makes them feel warm and sentimental. It’s a good occasion to make your partner a bit sentimental. You can make that special gift by yourself. For example: If you have been married for many years, then you might have kids, give her a collection of photographs starting from your marriage till your kids. That will remind her journey you had together. Another example: If you man is a tough guy and he does not get sentimental. This is the time to do that, prepare your night well and make it as close as your first nights together. Don’t expect tears in his eyes but it will make him a bit sentimental for sure. I can't provide any links for this post because no website can provide it.
I hate when my anniversary fall in the middle of the week, you cannot plan for anything big because you cannot miss the office next day. So the alternative to that I think it’s good to make complete week romantic and not one particular day. Choose a weekend before your anniversary date or after and plan a two day vacation at a new place. The place can be a new home in the nearby city or somewhere beautiful and romantic. Choose a place within 3-4 hours travel time and book a resort or home, which has some unique offerings for example: A small cottage in the valley of mountains, which will give you secluded environment and beauty of nature.
I know it may sound like, we already had our honeymoon. But don't hesitate to name it your second honeymoon or your second best memorable time together. Doing lot of things on your anniversary at home works too but doing once in a while a different planning makes it special. Search for honeymoon packages and gift it as a gift. Hire a nanny for sometime or leave your children with their grandparents. Go out, only both of you. You guys deserves a brake on your special occasion.
Every gift looks beautiful but the most beautiful a heart desires is love. They need to feel love; after many years of marriage couple takes this for granted that yup he knows that I love him. She knows that of course I love her. But expression of love becomes more important with time, just to feel loved is the best gift for an anniversary. Take some time off from your day to day responsibilities and plan a evening out. Go for a bare foot walk on the beach. If that’s not possible, camp out in the evening and make it a picnic but just two of you. Just call a nanny on your anniversary day. Have Champagne in a hot tub or love sit on a bench together and read your old love letter to each other.
I believe lot of people tries to organize romantic dinner for their anniversary but it usually gets the choices like your favorite restaurant or your partner’s favorite place. Don’t do that every time, you might have visited the same place 10 times before and how will it make your day special this time. By organizing additional anniversary cake, Nooo! You might like to spend some time at new places which will a surprise for your partner, if you live nearby the cost, then find out the good restaurant at some beach. Make sure the place should not be more than an hour travel and the weather is also appropriate for outside dinner. Take your partner for a new theme restaurant, do something different but romantic. You can find the rating and list of restaurant on Yelp.
