Your first wedding anniversary is an occasion that requires a little hoopla, but not in a expensive-showering-of-gifts kind of way - more of aВ hand-written-note-instead-of-a-storebought-card kind of way. In other words, taking the gesture one step further is always the best practice here.

Below are nine unforgettable ways to commemorate your first wedding anniversary. Some are traditional and some are a little outside the norm, but all will help etch the occasion into your memory.

Return to your original honeymoon destination for some much-deserved Q.T. with your spouse. If a getaway isn't in the cards, book a night or two at a posh local hotel, and celebrate the occasion with champagne, room service, and in-room massages.

Renew Your Vows

You could go the formal route and renew your vows in the presence of an officiant and an audience of your favorite people, or you could simply renew your vows at home by reciting the promises you made to one another a year earlier. It's up to you.

Get Busy Between the Sheets (or Elsewhere)

Sex on your anniversary is expected, but that doesn't mean it can't hold a surprise or two. Throw your S.O. a curve ball by donning some new lingerie or (gasp!) even initiating the act in an unexpected location.
