1st year anniversary gifts are normally in paper if you are following the traditional list or clocks from the modern list. But it is special in that it is the first of many so why not think about doing something special, just the two of you?
Go for an activity that neither of you have tried before, that way you will both be as good as each other to start with!? Scuba diving, riding, wine tasting, going to the theatre or seeing a ballet are all things that you may not have tried yet.
This is one of those opportunities in life to try something new and there are lots to choose from, here are just a few that are available from Great American Days!
The tickets for these experience days helps with the paper theme and it is romantic doing something together for the first time. You could spend the day doing something exciting and then have the evening for a romantic meal at your favorite restaurant.
Many couples like to return to the place where they met, or where he proposed or where they spent their wedding night, if this is at a restaurant then you could ask if you can have the same table or the same room where you stayed. On our 10th anniversary we stayed at the hotel we spent our wedding night at, this time round we were able to treat ourselves to the room that we really wanted.
