The first year of marriage is commonly referred to as the most challenging because it will be the time of adjustments in building a home together, categorizing finances and planning for the future. And at the same time, it is the moment to get to know each other in a deeper way and to enjoy each other company. Sacrifices have been made and the first anniversary will be the time to strengthen more the love for each other and to show how you value your partner.
Traditionally, the paper is the symbolic gift for the first year anniversary. Some would not appreciate it at first glance, but if you have much inspiration and has wide imagination, you’ll later realize that there will be a variety of choices, depending on your creativity.
The most apparent gift related to paper is cash. Although, cash is not a romantic gift for some people. But, ideas that worked out is putting the cash in something they like most can be more fun and exciting. For instance, if your loved one is into golf, you can purchase him a new golf bag with gift certificates inserted inside the pockets. Similarly, an active gardener will be surprised and happy with set of garden tools with a nice gift inside. Indeed, gift certificates are really awesome if they are with something that is related to the interest of the person you are giving.
Also, a love letter or a poem expressing your love and admiration is very suitable for the paper theme. If you are not good in writing or don’t have any writing skills, there are services available that will do the writing for you. It is always a thoughtful move to include a small gift with a love letter inserted on it.
Books can be an excellent apparent choice of gift. Choose not the latest bestseller, rather pick one that they will inspire and something for them to cherish. Know first what topics they like, and look for the best book suited for that topic.
A printer is also a good present if your spouse is into paper works or photography. Also, a photo book or a scrapbook is the best idea. Keepsakes like photos, souvenirs of the memorable events that had happened to you in your first year of marriage may be included.
Having your paper anniversary celebrated with success and romance takes only a little imagination from those varieties of choices above.
