YummyMummy agony auntTake a cd player, some cds, some candles and a little picnic of food like sandwiches and crisps. Maybe some strawberries if the budget stretches to it :D And a cheap bottle of wine or a few beers xxxxxxxx

nigelfuxwell agony auntAhhhh… I absolutely adore you two. I wish more people had questions like that. Here’s the thing – romance is CHEAP. It’s all about quality and atmosphere. So here’s some suggestions based on experience:

Make your anniversary celebration last as many days as you’ve been together so here’s a little script you can either use, or add your own:

a) day 1 – the hotel – for dinner, I don’t know how good you are at cooking, but if you Google “cheap romantic recipe” or “inexpensive recipe” or anything like that, you’ll get plenty of ideas on what do do. More important than the meal – make a coupon book yourself. Get some paper, draw little hearts and personal things and fill it with love and sex coupons for him to “redeem” like “One free backrub”, “A night of wild sex”, “20 free kisses anywhere” or as dirty or clean as you want. Also, if you have sexy lingerie, wear it when you serve dinner. If you don’t just imagine the look on his face when you tell him “wait I have to change for dinner” and you come out of the bathroom wearing a t shirt and panties, carrying the food…

b) day 2 – the park(or beach or country depending on where you live) – pack a picnic basket full of goodies and junk food, a blanket and some music and head out to a secluded area. Feed each other. Laugh have fun. And if you’re alone… well… you have an imagination

c) day 3 – back home – Turn off the television, turn on some seductive music (it doesn’t have to be corny, it depends on whatever kind of music you’re into) and light some candles. Curl up on the sofa or in bed, and let your imagination take it from there.

After it’s all said and done, neither one of you will really care about what food you have, it’s all about being creative, spontaneous and making the event one to remember. I truly hope you guys have a fantastic time. Happy Anniversary!

bubbloo24 agony auntI say, candle lit room, quiet classical music, dress up ( little black dress ALWAYs goes down well).

What is his absolute favourite meal?? I think Spaghetti bolagnaise would be good ( orignal but classic)

Maybe not tell him what your planning and then turn up on his doorstep looking proper nice and chauffeur him to your house??

couple of ideas, I hope they help :)

Andy00 agony auntWell, this maybe won't be the best idea ever, but here's a simple suggestion.

Have a look and see what you have in the house that's easy to prepare, and chuck it all into something at the same time.

One time when me and my girlfriend were together, she was feeling really sad after we had a little fall out and I was due to go home the next day (my home is 240 miles from where she lives). I talked to her and cheered her up about things, and we decided to cook lunch. It became clear we didn't have much, so to keep spirits up, I said "You know what, hun? Lets just chuck in the bloody lot!" From there, we heat up some chicken soup, a few hot dogs and some wafer-thin ham, evened it out and threw it into a couple of mugs. It was hardly the best meal ever, but it certainly put a happy spell of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day.

I'm not saying do exactly that, but you never know what you have lying around, and even if it isn't the greatest meal you've ever had, the fact that you made it, and had fun chucking things together will completely blank out the food should it be unsuccessful.

As I say, perhaps not the greatest idea for something to eat, but it will definately be fun and romantic.
