The first wedding anniversary is a special occasion to celebrate, you have made it through your first year of marriage and hopefully it has been a good year, and one that is worthy of celebrating. Maybe you are looking for a gift for your partner or maybe it is friends or family who are celebrating and you want to get a gift for the couple. Either way let us help with some great ideas.
Paper is the traditional symbol for the first wedding anniversary. It is believed this is because paper is delicate like the start of a new marriage and also it signifies the start of a new story to be written in time.
We have found some amazing paper related gifts that you can buy for your husband or wife. You obviously don’t have to stick with the tradition of paper and can buy other gifts. You might initially think what on earth can I buy that is paper, but you will soon start to get creative and be inspired by the fantastic gift ideas.

A great gift could be a personalised print so maybe one with the couples names and words associated with them as a couple, the date they married and the location etc. You can get these framed and then it can be hung in a special place in the home as a lovely reminder of the love they share. Another lovely sentimental idea is a large map that they can then pin or colour all the places they have visited together and where they plan to visit in the future. Or a framed print of how the stars were aligned on the night of the wedding or the night they met can be a beautiful and thoughtful gift.

You can get spoof newspaper front pages made up with headlines written about the couple which are a great fun anniversary gift. Date night cards or reasons why I love you cards also make cute little gifts to give to each other. If you are looking at jewellery but still want to stick with the paper theme you can get paper plane necklaces,earrings and even cufflinks which we think are really special as a first anniversary gift.
