How to Celebrate Your One Year Anniversary

It seems like just yesterday you said “I Do” to each other, but believe it or not, almost an entire year has passed.  Now is the time to start planning how to celebrate your one year wedding anniversary.  The traditional one year anniversary gift is “paper”, which means celebrating by giving each other “paper based” gifts.  A couple gift ideas with the paper theme are:

  • Photo books
  • Tickets to a show or concert
  • An art piece for your home
  • Paper flowers
  • Custom portrait of the two of you
  • Hand written letters to each other
  • Map with a vacation place circled

Some people choose to break tradition and celebrate their first anniversary with a memorable experience instead.  Here are a few top ideas:

  • Eat the top layer of your wedding cake where you met each other
  • Take a second honeymoon
  • Have a formal night on the town with professional hair and makeup
  • Ultimate night in with massages, dinner and wine

However you decide to celebrate, anniversaries are an occasion to spend quality time together and get away from the hustle bustle of daily life.  Spend your special day with each other reflecting and enjoying the past year you’ve been together.
