Be Creative, Give Something Memorable!
Everybody loves receiving gifts but not everyone thinks to buy for a wedding anniversary.
- You do not need to spend a lot of money.
- You can make it fun for the receiver as well as the giver.
- It is a thoughtful way to remember one of the most important events in a couples life.
The FIRST Wedding Anniversary is traditionally PAPER with modern being PLASTIC
I received a bundle of goodies the day before my wedding anniversary from my best friend who had been a bridesmaid They included a newspaper from the day we were married that also contained the wedding announcement, a small bunch of paper flowers, and croissants from the local bakery in a brown paper bag. A thoughtful yet inexpensive gift.
Couples might like to give each other more generous gifts such as airline tickets or entry tickets to see his/her favorite football team play/theater performance. Store vouchers come in both paper and plastic as well.
And if you need more ideas on what to buy as a 1st Wedding Anniversary Gift, think about these;
