The traditional US wedding anniversary gift is paper. Quite frankly, paper is not that impressive of a gift if you just think of a piece of plain paper. But in fact, there are quite a lot of interesting and romantic gifts you can come up with if you add some creativity.
Alternatively, Chicago Public Library had taken the initiative to come up with a list of more modern gift list for the wedding anniversary. For the first year anniversary, they suggested a clock, perhaps signifying the precious moments of marriage. It’s not clear to me, out of any organization, Chicago Public Library would be the one to make suggestions, but it seems to be quite accepted anyhow.
Now with both paper and clock as choices, here are some of my suggestions to woo your sweetie when celebrating your first year wedding anniversary.
Get a designer to create a unique and personal infographic to commemorate your marriage of one year. You can include statistics like number of hours you know each other, number of nights you’ve spent as a marriage couple, number of countries you’ve visited together and number of pets you have, etc.
