It may seem like only yesterday that you were stressing out about the preparations before walking down the aisle to your beloved, when suddenly, a whole year has already passed!
It probably seems like just yesterday that you were celebrating as newlyweds. Where does the time go?
Although you may have a number of excellent present ideas for your significant other, tradition dictates that at least one gift be of paper. On the surface of it, an anniversary paper gift may not seem like the most exciting of gifts, but we have some quirky and imaginative ideas that may just change your mind.
They could be tickets to a show, a concert or even some train tickets to take you on a romantic trip away. The options with this one are endless.
written on paper, of course! An original poem is always a lovely idea, if you’re not confident in your shakespearean talents then you could always quote the bard and frame it to put on the wall.
3) A Book
If your partner loves to read then this one is a no-brainer. How about mixing it up and getting them a book of love poems or stories?
4) A Card
You’ll probably be getting one of these anyway, but how about a handmade one just so that it’s extra special?
5) Magazine Subscription
So maybe getting a subscription to a mountain biking magazine might not be the most romantic idea in the world but if that’s what your partner is into then they’ll love it anyway.
6) Scratch Card
Or a Lotto ticket. Both are on paper and both could win you some money… which is also paper. It’s a win-win!
If you haven’t already, this is a perfect excuse to revisit memories from the big day, alternatively if you are feeling a bit fruity then why not take some saucy photos to slip into their anniversary card?
8) An Invitation
If you forgot about the paper tradition and have already booked a romantic outing then why not write your sweetie an invitation to attend?
9) A Journal or Notebook
If your partner loves to write then this is always a good idea. Maybe they’ll use it to write you some love letters.
10) Message in a Bottle
Who doesn’t appreciate a sweet love letter? And if it’s in a bottle? even better! It doesn’t have to be pages long, just a simple “I Love You” would do the trick. Roll up the paper, tie with a red ribbon and slip it into a bottle for a cute gift idea.
