A lot of us wonder if giving someone a gift is really worth the hassle; isn't it enough to just give them a greeting card? While that sounds like a logical argument, the idea of giving someone a gift goes beyond the act of spending. It's about taking time out from a busy schedule to select a gift specially for someone, choosing something after careful consideration.
The first wedding anniversary is always special. The theme for this year is paper. Granted, it sounds boring when pictures of flashy jewelry, expensive perfumes and such and such flashes before your eyes, but the good news is that all these gifts will follow in the later years. For now, focus on paper and what will be a good gift with this theme. Try some Chinese paper lanterns that you can hang up over the dinner table, or a unique paper painting to adorn your living room.
