    The lady and I celebrate our one-year anniversary in July. What's the deal? Is there something in particular I'm supposed to get as a gift? All I have planned right now is a nice dinner, and I don't even have a place picked out yet.

    For those of you who've been there, what's worked? What hasn't?

    For the one year anniversary, I took the lady out to the place where we had our first date, bought her flowers and generally swept her off her feet. The key is to communicate with the person and find out what is special to them and then do your darndest to make it a night to remember.

    Congratulations on the milestone. My wife and I mark our 10-year anniversary today.

    While moments like this are nice, I wouldn't worry about making it ultra special. A nice dinner, some flowers, a meaningful road trip, a small token to let your wife know how important she is in your life. But if you do these things consistently throughout the year -- building a relationship on respect, love and friendship -- then one silly little day out of the year shouldn't be all that important. In the end, it's just a day.

    You're supposed to eat the tier of your wedding cake that's been in the freezer.

    First anniversary gift is traditionally paper.

    Nothing is as thoughtful and personal as a book.

    Don't be nice to them or they start to expect it.
