If your anniversary is right around the corner or simply just planning something special for a loved one, ideas can be difficult to come by since there is so much variety on hand. As always, the key is to pick something which you will both enjoy, but that doesn’t mean sticking to the same old date-nights that you’re used to. Below are just a few suggestions to inspire your own special evening together.


An anniversary doesn’t have to mean losing your head and all of your money. As long as you’re both having fun, isn’t that the best gift of all? If no parties are up for a big night, consider drinks and a bite for an ideal way to celebrate the special day. Indulge in delicious cocktails, and a variety of dishes which are best shared.

Longrain – 85 Commonwealth Street, Sydney


A dinner date is probably the most popular way to celebrate an anniversary, although this doesn’t imply that it’s dated or boring in any way. There is nothing better than a personalised menu for your big night, and Sokyo at The Star lets you create a variety of Asian-fusion dishes which no doubt everybody will enjoy. Before you sit down for some dinner, grab some delicious cocktails at Sokyo Lounge which are exclusive to the bar.

For a one-of-a-kind dining experience definitely try a degustation course which is perfect as an anniversary gift. Small courses of meals are made with great care and allow guests to taste the chef’s signature dishes in one complete sitting. Often matched with delicious wines that help to bring out the flavour of the meal, and usually consist of eight or more small dishes in one night. A truly unique experience that combines delicious taste and beautiful presentation into one dish.
