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.
You wouldn't forget the day you were getting married, so make it a point to celebrate the anniversary of that very special event each year. How you celebrate the anniversary depends on many factors. Can you find a babysitter? Can you book that favourite restaurant? If it's a surprise, will it be a welcome one?
