Switch up those anniversary plans…

Instead of gifting something to one another on your anniversary, consider sponsoring an “Anniversary party in a box,” for couples in homeless shelters, or someone in for a lengthy hospital stay. The don’t have to be elaborate. Dollar stores are a great resource for throwing these together, and all of the following can typically be found in their isles:


  • Plastic fluted glasses

  • Sparkling juices

  • Party plates

  • Candles both real and battery powered

  • Fake flowers

  • Many of these stores have discount books you can read to one another

  • Silly little games in the kid section that are perfect for two

  • Hershey kisses

  • Assorted snacks

  • Gift bags or various boxes for leaving these items in.
