9. Have a romantic picnic date

Picnic dates are such a romantic idea to spend your first wedding anniversary. Being outdoors, watching the stars and feeling the breeze will just create the perfect romantic mood, even if it's just on your balcony. 

10. Create an indoors spa

Spas have this very romantic appeal. Why not create your very own indoors spa at home? Set the mood with scented candles, prepare some essential oils for massaging and fill up that tub with hot water. You'll both enjoy this romantic and exhilarating experience!

11. Just spend all day in bed

Is there really anything better than spending all day in bed, and spending it with your partner. Comfy pjs, the occasional makeout session, random questions, intimate talks and then of course Netflix. 

12. Cook for each other

Plan a dinner date at home, except this time you each get to cook something special for the other person. 

13. Dance

It might sound cheesy, but actually putting on your favorite music and dancing around the house being goofy or romantic with a slow dance (maybe your first dance song) is guaranteed to put you both in a good mood and give you an anniversary night to remember. 

14. Write each other a letter

Write each other a list of all the things you've learned from the other person in the past year. It's a beautiful, romantic and healthy relationship gesture to show gratitude and appreciation.

15. Actually ask the other person what they're idea of a perfect 1st anniversary is...

Yup, that simple and create for them.
