On the 24th this month, my husband and I will be reaching our first milestone - our 1st wedding anniversary.
I cannot believe it has gone this quick, it almost feels like we just got married a few days ago.
And as you may know, anniversaries come tied to celebrations, and we are very eager to celebrate our marriage.
Nowadays you can find a few different lists out there indicating what type of anniversary it is - there are traditional and modern lists, and from country to country they may also vary.
We have decided to stick to the traditional list, and since we live in the UK, whatever is followed here.
Now this list below, is a great simple guide of the years and not only the traditional and modern themes but also what kind of flowers are related to each year.

So here I am to list out a few ideas for gift giving on the 1st anniversary, some ideas in which I had myself, some in which I will do, and some that I found on the Internet and thought it was cute.
These ideas are good for either one in the relationship, very unisex.

I have nothing more to say, this is more of a fun gift but still quite cool. Be careful though if you aren't a typical funny couple your partner may not enjoy getting only that as a gift.

There are other ideas, like if you don't want to frame your wedding certificate, you can make or buy a little box for it, or if budget is really low you can make a card with something sweet written in it, or get tickets to a movie / event / show / trip. You can make an intricate origami, or a post-it surprise (you write sweet things on post-its and glue them in a heart shape on the bathroom mirror), or make little paper hearts and sprinkle them on the bed, have some flowers waiting for him/her.
And then the obvious like give them a book, a photo album, a notebook, a sketch book, or a gift card for a bookstore.
Paper is a hard year to think of gifts, specially if you want your gifts to be useful apart from romantic.
But I think I tackled quite a few ideas and that should make it quite easy for you.
I hope you have enjoyed this post, if you had your first anniversary already, what did you do?
If you haven't, are there any ideas you have that we could use?
Leave me a comment letting us know.
