For spouses

Surprise them by repainting the bedroom. Be sneaky, but make sure you figure out what color they’d like first.


Remodel the kitchen or bathroom. On your anniversary, cook a meal or take a shower together in your new room.

For another couple

Give a gift card to a hardware or home improvement store along with a note telling them you think it’s wonderful that their hearts are at home together.

Organize a group to pay for a needed improvement, such as repaired front steps or new carpet in a room.
