The most important date of your relationship will soon be upon you, and you don’t want a boring gift that you could buy any day of the year. Anniversaries are a landmark. They make you look back on all the time you have spent with your special someone; how they were there for you during a difficult time, the fights you’ve worked through, and the triumphs they celebrated with you. So whether you’re celebrating your wedding anniversary or remembering the very start of your relationship, here are some thoughtful gifts that will say “Here’s to the next five years.”
What a difference a year makes. The traditional gift to mark your first anniversary is paper; simple, to be sure, but paper can cover a lot of things. You could choose to acknowledge the paper in the card you gift her, or a more heartwarming gift could be a journal, or handmade storybook about your first year together.
A more contemporary gift for a first anniversary is any gold jewelry with no specified stone. An infinity name necklace made of gold is both personal and has a beautiful message implied in the symbol. Make it more meaningful by engraving both your names on the necklace.
