#115 | First Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

In two months, Erik and I will be celebrating our one year wedding anniversary. Time really flies!

I am having the hardest time trying to come up with gift ideas though, so I went to my good friend Google. One of the first results was for an About.com article, titled Traditional First Year Anniversary Gifts – Paper. About.com is usually decent, so I figured I would check it out. This is legit the list of ten gift ideas:

  1. Photographs and Picture Frames
  2. Books
  3. Board Games and Puzzles
  4. Stationery
  5. Tickets
  6. Paintings
  7. Coupons
  8. Love Letters
  9. Posters and Art Prints
  10. Calendars

It’s bad enough I feel like we’re an old married couple on a daily basis, but this article is suggesting I give Erik board games and paintings for our one year anniversary?! He’s 29! Not 92! Ugh!

I need help you guys! What are some great gift ideas for a first anniversary?

We can’t take a trip because we are going on a week long vacation two weeks later. Oh and he’s an IT professional so he has every gadget he could ever possibly need. I thought about getting him a watch because he doesn’t have one, but when I asked him randomly if he liked a watch in a magazine the other day, he made a face and said, “ugh I hate watches.”

Help :(

  1. For our one year anniversary I purchased journals for myself and my hubby with a little note of what were were to do with them. Each night before bed we would write down something that the other spouse did that made us love them a little more that day. We wouldn’t share what we wrote with each other until the next anniversary where we would swap journals and read them. It’s also a fun way to remember all the things you did together the past year.

  2. My wife and I recently celebrated our five year wedding anniversary, and I wanted to get something made of wood, since that is the tradition for the fifth anniversary. I found a company online called Unique Custom Products that offered tons of customized wooden gift items. I chose a wooden jewelry box and engraved the beautiful alder wood lid with our names and the date. Also, inside of the box cover they imprinted our wedding picture. It is beautiful and my wife loves it. I am so happy I called them. if you need a wood gift for your 5th…call Ormond at (877) 282-9591www.woodinvitations.com
