WHY & HOW TO CELEBRATE A VINAVERSARY

Your vinaversary is about to become your favorite day of the year!

Why reserve all of the love and fun of an anniversary to just your significant other? Show your vina just how much you love her by marking a day on your calendar to celebrate your friendship! Here are some ideas about how to plan a vinaversary for the books!

SET THE BAR HIGH

If you have never celebrated a vinaversary before, you’re going to have to do most of the planning.  Don’t remember the day you and your vina became friends? Pick one together! Once you have the date, you can get planning. For your first ever vinaversary, it’s important to set the stage for vinaversaries of the future. Want to go all out? Get some balloons, your vina’s favorite candy, and a playlist of your favorite songs to belt together. Prefer to keep it low-key and easy-going? Order your favorite takeout, or make reservations at your favorite restaurant. Set the bar high, and soon enough your vinaversary will be your favorite day of the year!

FOR FAR AWAY VINAS

If you can’t actually be with your vina on your vinaversary, never fear! You can still make their day special and show them how thankful you are for your friendship by sending flowers, or even just a nice post card with a sincere note. Make time to FaceTime on that day, and do something fun- like text everyone that will see them and ask all those people to tell them “happy vinaversary!”- super cute, right?

GIFT OR NAH?

For typical anniversaries with a s/o, the gift almost seems like the reason for the celebration. Friendship is a little different, but if you have the means and desire to get your friend a gift, by all means- treat them! A good rule to live by is to give without the expectation of receiving. If you don’t want to buy something, you can always search for a DIY project, or sign up for a class together. The point of the vinaversary is not to have another gift to worry about buying, but rather to celebrate your friendship and strengthen it at the same time. If it starts to feel stressful, you’re doing it wrong.

I am a college student studying in San Francisco, CA. Being a transplant from New Jersey in a city as unique as SF has proven to be very fun and interesting. I continue to grow every day through my writing, experiences, and friendships. It is my pleasure to share some of what I have learned with you :)
