The First Year: Your First Wedding Anniversary!
Wow – where did all the time go? It seems that only yesterday you were planning your wedding, and now here you are getting ready to celebrate your first wedding anniversary! Time goes by when you’re having fun, as they say, and now you’ve got a major decision on your hands. How will you set the stage for your future years of swapping anniversary gifts?

To celebrate your first wedding anniversary, consider a gift that shows your spouse how much he or she means to you. You can offer a traditional first wedding anniversary gift of paper, such as artwork or travel vouchers, or you can select a modern first wedding anniversary gift such as a wall clock or desk clock.

If you can’t find an appropriate paper anniversary gift to celebrate your first year together – or if you just don’t want to follow these traditions – you can easily find a great gift for your partner with a little creativity and a bit of shopping. Just don’t forget that first anniversary greeting card!
