3. Plant a Tree

Plant a Tree

Budget: Approximately $25, depending on the tree

Perfect timing: Married for one year

How romantic: Very romantic

What better way to express the permanence of your love than to plant a tree to celebrate your first year together?

Choose a spot in the garden where your type of tree will have plenty of room to grow, and where it will get the right amount of sunlight. A local nursery will have seedlings or young trees to choose from, and their arborist can recommend just the right tree. Even more romantic? Fill a tin with love notes to each-other and small tokens, then plant it with the tree. Agree to dig it back up again on a particular special anniversary, like 25 years.
