First Anniversary | Tips & Ideas

Happy First Anniversary! 365 days down, forever to go!! One year ago you were standing on a beautiful beach on Kauai while you said I do to your forever!

The traditional 1 year anniversary gift is paper and the more modern gift is a clock. You definitely don’t need to stick with these traditional gifts but its fun over the years to continue with the anniversary themes. If your ready to start planning here are the years to come as well:

  • 1st Anniversary: Paper.
  • 2nd Anniversary: Cotton.
  • 3rd Anniversary: Leather.
  • 4th Anniversary: Fruit or Flowers.
  • 5th Anniversary: Wood.
  • 6th Anniversary: Candy or Iron.
  • 7th Anniversary: Wool or Copper.
  • 8th Anniversary: Pottery or Bronze.

Paper is a fitting gift for the first year because it’s fragile, just like the beginning stages of marriage. But, if you take care of it properly, it’ll last a lifetime.
