The 25 year mark is getting to be quite rare in this day and age, so that's really reason enough to celebrate. The official theme for this year is silver. That's more like it, right? Cause there's sooo much you can do with this theme. Apart from the obvious choice of jewelry, the other gifts that you can present include silverware, engraved silver key chains or a ƈ and 5' days vacation at an exotic location (second honeymoon, why not).
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.
