The Ultimate Guide To Celebrating Your Monthsary!

How to celebrate your monthsary?

Your first will always be special.

Everybody knows about anniversaries, but what about you and your significant other’s monthsaries? Are you excited to have spent at least 30 days dating your special guy/girl? And aren’t you glad they’ve stuck with you for this long?

Let’s check out what monthsaries are – and what you can do to celebrate your happy monthsary with your boyfriend/girlfriend!

Monthsary meaning: What is a monthsary?

It’s just like an anniversary, except that you’re celebrating a month spent together instead of a whole year together. You can have up to 11 monthsaries, since the 12th monthsary is an anniversary. A year really is a long time, so it can be fun to honor each passing month of your still-developing relationship.

Happy monthsary: What can I do to celebrate my monthsary?

There is an infinite number of possibilities. In fact, there are so many options that it can be hard to choose just one (or a few). The most important aspects of celebrating one is that:

A.) You remembered it

B.) You did something special for your boyfriend/girlfriend

To help you brainstorm some ideas, consider the following questions: How did you two meet and start to date? What has kept you together? What do you love most about your boyfriend/girlfriend, and what do you love about your relationship as a whole?

If you still feel unsure about what to do for your special day, here are a few specific ideas:

Plan a date night with your boyfriend/girlfriend, like a dinner and a movie
Buy him/her a favorite treat or item they’ve been eyeing/talking about
Take a weekend trip out camping or to see an out-of-town attraction/concert/performance
Prepare a special meal or dessert for your significant other – something you know they’ll love
Plan a surprise of any kind, something he/she would really enjoy
Make sure to listen to your significant other so you know what is in their heart or on their mind. If your gift shows that you’ve been listening, it’ll be all the more special.

What if I’m on a tight budget?

Monthsaries are not like the anniversaries that “require” gold, silver, or diamond gifts. You can show your boyfriend or girlfriend that you remembered your special day without spending a penny! Here are some zero-cost gift ideas for your special someone:

Write out a list of things you love about him/her (bonus points if the number of items on the list corresponds to special dates!)
Draw/make/paint a heartfelt monthsary wishes/message/card
Go on a surprise date to a park or free tourist attraction
Do something nice for him/her (even a chore) and leave a note behind that shows you care
Express how much you appreciate him/her through actions – do it regularly!
As long as your efforts are heartfelt, there’s no wrong way to celebrate a day both of you will enjoy!

Final Thoughts

Every relationship is different, just like every person is different. The important thing is to show your significant other how important they are to you. This appreciation can take many different forms, but the underlying message will be the same: you are a special person to me, and I want to spend many more monthsaries and anniversaries to come with you!

Are you nearing your next monthsary with no idea how to express your feelings? To be fair, love is a tricky feeling to pin down to just one cause. It is an overwhelming yet comforting sensation that develops with each moment together, whether good or bad.

Happy Monthsary Messages, wishes And Quotes

That’s why this whole monthsary quotes aren’t as easy as you want it to be. Crafting heartfelt messages will take some special effort and a little bit of time.

How Do I Write One?

Don’t worry, it’s not as hard as it sounds! Here are some tips to help you create perfect wishes and quotes:

Although sweet text messages have their time and place, handmade and handwritten is almost always better.
Even though asking for help is okay, make sure that your monthsary messages come from the heart.
Include specific details like first dates, special moments, and inside jokes!
Put in the extra time and research to ensure the best gift and timely deliveries.
The most important part? Keep it a surprise, or if you like, turn it into a game!
Basically, just tell them how you feel! It’s always good to express appreciation and thankfulness for their presence and efforts. Finally, always try to do something different or better each month (unless you are doing a theme).

The length of your love messages doesn’t matter, just pour your heart into it! Love can be defined in both words and gestures. It doesn’t have to be some big romantic scene like in the movies – anything you put your heart into will be enough!

What else can I do other than a well-written monthsary message?

Other than a well-crafted message, quotes or just a simple text message. The biggest thing you can do for your partner is to really let them know you appreciate them. Other than getting them gifts, which isn’t ideal since you can’t keep giving gifts (Unless you’re a trust fund baby). Gestures are a great way to show appreciation. Getting them food, water, something they need, help them with housework etc.

[su_tabs active=”10″][su_tab title=”Ice cream!” disabled=”no” anchor=”” url=”” target=”blank” class=””]

Monthsary gift idea #1: You FLOAT my boat!

Who doesn’t get sentimental when they get a frosty soda float in their hands?

Find a spare basket or gift bag that’s big enough to hold a 2-liter bottle of soda and pint of ice cream. For a thorough touch, include everything they might need to make it, such as:

  • A fancy stein or pint glass
  • An ice cream scoop
  • Straws with hearts
  • Sprinkles, cinnamon straws, or candy chips

However, don’t forget the most important thing – a note letting them how much they “float” your boat!
P:S Remember to include a card on your wishes!

Monthsary gift idea #2: Supper Across the Sea

Are you in a long distance relationship? Perhaps your partner is away on a business, volunteer, or study abroad trip. Surprisingly, you can still treat them to their favorite drink or dinner!

Send them a gift card to their favorite restaurant or café. Leave a loving note in the envelope or simply say “Can I buy you a drink?”

If they’re near an urban area of any country, they can use a gift card from the top international chains:

  • McDonald’s
  • Starbucks
  • Burger King
  • Subway
  • Pizza Hut
  • Kentucky Fried Chicken

Although you aren’t there to physically share the meal with them, but you’ll definitely be there in heart!

Monthsary gift idea #3: Creative Candy Whatnots

What’s your sweetie’s favorite candy? Present it in a decorative jar or use the packages to spell out a message.

Here are some candy-specific message ideas:

  • Reese’s Pieces: I love you to PIECES
  • Swedish Fish: You’re quite a catch!
  • M&M’s: I want to melt in your mouth. My place, tonight?
  • Almond Joy: It’s a joy being yours!

Monthsary gift idea #4: You can never go wrong with candles…

When you think of romance, a sultry candle is somewhere in the picture. Plain, unscented pillar candles are inexpensive and easy to carve!

Simply use a nail tool or something sharp to carve a heart or message into the candle’s side. Paint the carved-out part with nail polish or normal paint. Leave it out with a note that lets them know you’re burning up for their love!


[/su_tab] [su_tab title=”Handmade!” disabled=”no” anchor=”” url=”” target=”blank” class=””]

Monthsary gift idea #5: Pillow Pocket

Fabric crafts can be intimidating to those of us missing the artsy touch. Fortunately, it’s not necessary for this one!

Use fabric glue or thread to attach a heart shaped piece of fabric to a cute pillow (or make your own). Leave the top of the heart open so you can leave messages or small gifts. What better way to wake up than to roll over and find a handwritten, heartfelt letter?

Tip: If you don’t yet live together, take turns secretly trading the pillow out. When it’s your turn, leave it behind on their couch or bed with the note intact. It will quickly turn into a fun game!

[/su_tab] [su_tab title=”Sound card” disabled=”no” anchor=”” url=”” target=”blank” class=””]

Monthsary gift idea #6: Lyrical Love Card

How often do you find yourself swooning over the same song that reminds you of your other half? Find the specific quotes from that song and print them out on a card! If you want to get really sentimental, add a recordable sound chip with that song or your own singing voice.


[/su_tab] [su_tab title=”Self care gifts!” disabled=”no” anchor=”” url=”” target=”blank” class=””]

Monthsary gift idea #7: Cozy Slipper Spa Kit

Regardless of what month it is, everyone needs a night sometimes to relax and veg out. Find a pair of comfy slippers in their size. Then fill them with a kit of luxury monthsary gifts like:

  • A facial mask
  • Hot cocoa mix
  • Airplane size liquor/wine bottles
  • Lotion and body wash
  • Chapstick
  • Epsom salts
  • Bubble bath

What better way to express how much you care than to give them all they need to feel human again?
