About 33rd Wedding Anniversaries
Although there are no traditional gifts for a 33rd wedding anniversary, the theme of the year itself is linked to spirituality. It is an opportunity to reflect on your relationship and all the wonderful years you have enjoyed together. Take time to not only reminisce on your memories together but also to really think about your love for your partner. It is a year to take stock of your relationship and to make sure you are doing everything you can to let your other half know how much you care about them.
How to Celebrate a 33rd Wedding Anniversary
As there is no traditional gift for this year you can celebrate it in any way that is unique to you. Alternatively, if you would like to stick with the spiritual theme for your 33rd wedding anniversary then booking a yoga or meditation retreat is a lovely way for you both to unwind and relax. Taking this time together to focus on mind fulness can help with stress and anxiety whilst also reminding you to be present and intentional in your relationship.
A special and unusual way to celebrate your 33rd wedding anniversary would be to book a stargazing and telescope viewing at your local observatory. Scour the dark night skies for the star signs linked to this special day so you can look out for them for years to come.
Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone that works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience and peace.” Quoted by: Miranda Kerr
