Anniversaries are always exceptionally special to couples, especially the first wedding anniversary. It is the most special occasion for a couple because it marks the first year the couple spent as a married couple.
In the United States alone, there were 61.96 million married couples in 2019, with 80 percent of them celebrating every wedding anniversary.
Because first wedding anniversaries are so special, you must be worried as to what to gift your partner to make the occasion romantic and lovable.
Here are six amazing gift ideas that you can present to your partners on your first anniversary:
1. Tickets or couple coupons
I know that this idea might seem a little far-fetched, but the greatest gifts are the ones that are customized and personalized.
So, on this special day, give your beloved partner a customized voucher or a special coupon because that way, you’ll get to know what your partner actually wants.
The same thing is applicable to the tickets. Gift your partner a surprise trip to their favorite basketball or football or any type of game, or even to a magic show and stand-up comedy, and make this day even more special for your beau.
2. Customized stationery
Customized stationery is my all-time favorite. These are so cute and meaningful, that I had to add this idea to this list. Present your partner with a pen or a cup with something meaningful inscribed on it. This will make your partner feel special and validated.
Gift your loved one a stamped notebook with their initials or watermarked business cards. This gesture might seem very normal and simple, but trust me, it will add great value to your gift.
3. Customized hampers
Custom-made hampers are elite if you ask me. Put together all the things that your partner likes and is fond of and give them a hamper for your first wedding anniversary. It is meaningful and exciting. Wrap the items in colored paper, so that you can give them pleasant surprises throughout their unboxing journey.
To make things extra thoughtful and romantic, throw in a handwritten card, expressing your love and appreciation towards them. I can bet, this will immediately put a smile on their face and create a wonderful first anniversary.
If your partner loves to read and is a fanatic of books and literature, then this might be the perfect gift idea for them. Surprise your beloved one, with books from their favorite genre and author and watch how that lights up their face.
You can also give them a stylish and trendy bookmark in addition to a book. This is a simple but meaningful gesture, and it’s even better if you hand-make an origami bookmark for them to remember where they left off.
Perfumes are a very common gifting item in today’s world. And if your partner is inclined towards collecting various varieties of scents, then take this opportunity to give them a perfume to add to their collection.
If you’re a guy who is reading this, you can just search online perfumes for women, and you’ll get thousands of ideas you can choose from.
You can either get them perfumes from a brand that your partner already loves or be slightly more creative and give them a bottle of a handmade perfume like the ones found in the Middle East.
6. Customized Utensils
I have written about gifting your partner with customized stationery, so I couldn’t help but add this to the list. On this anniversary, gift your beloved husband with a customized bottle opener, with their initials inscribed on it or a cup or plate or literally anything you want.
You can also add cute, romantic phrases like ‘mi amor’ or ‘i love you’ to make the gift even more special and heartfelt. You can also inscribe the date of your wedding with a cute little heart because it was your special day.
Over to you…
A gift is a gift. Whether you give them just chocolate or come at them with a big gesture, it would be out of the tremendous love you have for them.
So don’t fret, if you haven’t thought of something big. It’s the little things that matter in a relationship and everything you do, you’ll know that you are doing it out of love and adoration.
