1st Anniversary Gift Ideas For Couples

Exactly three-sixty-five days ago, when you took your marriage vows, you didn't imagine that in this one-year time you will have such lovely moments in your life. The first anniversary gifts were traditionally made of paper, as it is believed that a paper's strength comes from its interlaced threads, but now people do use other forms of gifts. The modern first year anniversary gifts mostly include watch (as it is believed that for those in love, time is eternity), flowers (to show purity) or hand-made personalized gifts (to give that romantic touch).

It is always better to be traditional as it has that unique quality of impressing the person you love within seconds. If you are planning to spoil your lady with something really special yet traditional you can make her a bouquet of roses with origami papers or make her a diary which will show her the first year of your marriage at a glance. If you are a Shakespeare naturally then you can consider the popular thought that a lady can never receive many love letters in her lifetime and write to her why she is will remain that special one all throughout your life. You can also bring out the real artist in your and make some paper made ornaments for your lady. They are quite simple to make and a will be a guaranteed head-turner for your lady royal. If you want to ditch the traditions and listen to your heart, you can bake your wife, her favourite cake or buy her favourite novel or take her out on a candle light dinner and gift her a splendid bouquet of chocolates.

Shopping for men is always the toughest. So it is always better to gift your man something quirky. If your man is of the cannot-go-without-newspaper type, you can think about printing a whole newspaper with your special moments and post it by the regular courier boy along with his much needed newspapers. You can also think of gifting your man a toilet roll full of thought written on it to give him that moment of laughter he deserves. If your man is of a very romantic kind you can think of a personalized message in a hand-painted bottle. If you want to buy him something you can definitely try the couple t-shirts with your favourite tag-lines. You can also gift him his much desired gaming console or a cool pair of personalized cufflinks based on the anniversary theme.

If it is not your first anniversary yet and you are looking for gifting idea for someone from your family or friends, you can think about buying them couple tickets for a romantic movie or can plan a night out for them. You can also make them a calendar for the present or upcoming years featuring all their special moments you captured or you can print a set of cards with their wedding moments. You can also think about sending them a personalized clock filled with memories to just remind them about the time they spent together. You can also follow the tradition and send then a bouquet of orange pansy. It is believed that pansy signifies that the recipient is being thought about and orange is the colour of purity, eternal love, marriage and fertility.
