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.
Whoever came up with the concept of anniversary gifts by the number of years married was a genius. Enough of having to scratch your head over and over about what to gift the couple, we say.

Then again, why just for others? The couple is also quite likely to want a choice to make when it comes to gifting each other. No more wondering what to gift him, her or them, instead, simply refer to the list provided below and go right ahead and gift that perfect gift. Simple and efficient if you ask me. Read, read...and take notes.
