You do not have to spend a fortune to come up with the perfect 1st wedding anniversary gifts. Anyone who is prone to forgetting special dates, needs to set a reminder to ensure you have your gift ready on the day. Forgetting or ignoring an anniversary because you don't think it is important, is not a good move for your relationship.
According to tradition and folk lore, paper is the ideal gift for a first anniversary. It should be something to mark the first year of marriage with a little romance and sentiment thrown in. When you are unable to think of something related to paper, you might like to try one of the following ideas.
Choosing the card is almost as important as the present. You have had a whole year to get to know your partners personality and should know if they like romantic, sweet or perhaps funny. If you feel creative, you can make your own specialized card which will be greatly appreciated, because you have made the effort.
The temptation when buying tickets for a special event such as a concert or a show is to go for something you would like. This is one time when you should be prepared to put your likes aside and make sure that the event is one your partner will enjoy. Booking a special meal for before of after the event is also a nice touch. If the finances will stretch to a nice hotel room for the night, it can make it a really special day.
A very personal gift for you both to share in future years is a scrap book of your first year of marriage. You can record what you did on the day and special events throughout the year. Every year on your anniversary add another chapter to the scrap book. It is a great and fun way to keep your memories and romance alive.
Special events vouchers keep to the tradition of paper gifts. You can book something you know your partner would love to do, but would never book for them-self. If you present them with a voucher for that flying lesson, or professional cookery course they have hankered after, you will store up points in their good book. If they are not that adventurous, but have a favorite hobby, you can buy them a subscription to a magazine for their hobby.
When you cannot come up with other ideas, you can always fall back on the old faithful, wine, chocolates and flowers. The only trouble with these items is that they do not last very long and can demonstrate a lack of thoughtfulness and caring. Try to find something that will last and be a constant reminder of your creative thinking, you should go for a paper of silk bouquet.
The first year of marriage is a getting to know the real you period. You learn a lot about each others personalities and likes and dislikes. You may be able to use the knowledge gained to pick out special 1st wedding anniversary gifts.
