Celebrate your first anniversary and remember it forever
The first anniversary is often the sweetest, since as the saying goes, the first year is the toughest in a marriage. You've come through learning to live together, learning each other's quirks and buttons, and forging a life as a couple, instead of two separate beings. If you have children, then you've learned how to navigate your relationship as parents, too. This is a celebration of successfully navigating through unknown territory, and as such, should be something you remember for the entirety of your marriage./p>
First Wedding Anniversary Gifts
If you are celebrating your first anniversary, you may want to get your partner a gift that will last forever. The first anniversary is known as the "paper anniversary", and some people choose to follow this tradition by getting their spouse a gift that has to do with this. Some people pick magazine subscriptions or books to represent this milestone, but some go even further and pick a unique gift that incorporates paper, but that is also a keepsake.
Some first anniversary gift ideas include tickets, picture frames with a special picture of the couple inside, books, personalized coupons for dinners out, massages, or chores, paintings or stationery. If you don't want to go with the traditional paper gift, you can get your spouse a clock or a piece of jewellery that means a lot to both of you and will last forever.
Useful Gifts for a Young Couple
If you are trying to find a gift for a couple celebrating their first anniversary, you could give the ultimate paper gift -- a cheque! This could help a lot for a young couple trying to save for a house or something expensive, for example. However, if you don't want to give money, then you could make them a nice picture collage or give them a book or poem that represents who they are and the type of relationship they have. An anniversary card is always appreciated, as well.
The first anniversary is special -- it's something that a couple will remember all their lives. Giving a gift that will be remembered is the key to celebrating this first milestone, and will set the tone for wedding anniversaries to come.
