What do you give someone who is celebrating their 1st wedding anniversary? The traditional gift for the husband to give his wife on the occasion of their 1st anniversary is an eternity ring. This gift symbolizes that their love and lives together will last through eternity. However, there are numerous other 1st anniversary gift ideas that anyone can use. It is important to know the couple well and to choose according to their interests. This is true for the couple giving gifts to each other.

For the man or woman that loves books, the gift of a book is very appropriate for this occasion. This can be a book of poetry or a book about your spouse passion or hobby. The sports enthusiast would love a book about his/her favourite team, for example. Write a little love note inside the cover of the book so that it will always be a memento of this occasion. This really fits in with the theme of this anniversary ?paper.

Just about all couples celebrate their first anniversary by taking a romantic trip, whether it is a weekend or a longer trip. Friends could get together and chip in on a weekend at a cozy retreat or even give the couple a gift certificate for a romantic dinner at their favourite restaurant. Being creative with this theme is the fun of celebrating the anniversary. Love notes left around the house, paper decorations, coupons for gifts they can choose at their favourite store ?these are inexpensive gifts that relay your feelings of being thoughtful on this special day.

Anyone that enjoys scrapbooking could prepare a gift that would last forever with a scrapbook for the couple. There are many themes you could use for this scrapbook, such as pictures of the couple while they were dating, pictures of their engagement, pictures showing their wedding preparations and pre-wedding parties and a scrapbook of the wedding pictures. This is something that they will treasure and keep. Add funny comments to the pictures to make the gift that much more special.

A 4 X 6 recipe box filled with coupons is something different that works well for the 1st anniversary. The coupons could be for movies or fun filled ideas, such as bedroom favors. A piece of framed art or a book autographed by his/her favourite author is also a great idea for a gift.

For the couple that loves to play games, a gameboard would make a great gift. This should be a game that they don already own so it would be something completely new for them. An anniversary poem written on parchment paper and framed will really bring tears of joy to her eyes as she reads the love-filled words. Of course there are quirky gifts that you can also give for the 1st anniversary, such as toilet tissue with Happy Anniversary written on it.

Some other suggestions for gifts for this occasion include a frame for their wedding picture, n engraved message on a bottle, or a keepsake with their names and the date of their wedding engraved on it.
