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.
The second wedding anniversary gets a special mention because it's not that late into your marriage and not that early either. The traditional theme for this year is cotton. What might be some of the second anniversary gift ideas that you can use? How about a huge basket of all things cotton? Slippers, bathrobes, cotton pants, lingerie, hammocks, quilts? Sounds good?
