Gift giving doesn't get any more fanciful and elaborate than it does in accordance with wedding anniversaries. With each additional year of eternal matrimony, comes a whole new theme from which your anniversary present for her will be based. For the first year wedding anniversary, your gift for her is supposed to traditionally revolve around the theme of paper. Although in modern times, other similar themes can be employed as well.

Love Letter

The traditional paper-themed anniversary gift is the love letter or poem. To make a love letter or poem for your wife, you should start by taking a moment to sit down and contemplate why you fell in love with her in the first place. You should also make note of all her traits that you find attractive. You should think about all of these things from the heart. Then, write your entire letter or poem to her from start to finish coming from this same deep place inside you (your heart). When completed, you can check for grammar and spelling mistakes as well as make sure that you are satisfied with what you wrote. It's best not to overedit it afterward.

Other Gifts

There are also other traditional type gifts you can give her for your first anniversary. Some other paper ideas include books, scented papers, art, memory or photo albums, or even tickets to some sort of event (made of paper). You may also choose to purchase your wife a present involving the appropriate anniversary gemstone. For the first year, items with gold or gold jewellery is appropriate.

Modern Approaches

Some people would rather approach get her first anniversary gift from the modern perspective. The modern substitute for paper, as you might expect, would be plastic. So essentially anything made of plastic can be purchased in place of a paper gift for her. Examples of plastic gifts include kitchen utensils, cheap sunglasses, plastic mats, CDs, DVDs, and even sex toys.

Alternative Modern Approaches

For those who prefer to not only stride in the modern direction, but stride in a completely away from the traditional paper theme, the alternative approach of a clock theme may be suitable. There are endless ways to fulfil the clock theme. You may choose to purchase your wife a wrist watch, an artisan or vintage clock (such as a grandfather clock or a handcrafted clock), or even just a plain, old alarm clock. It may be wise idea to even seek out a clock that has gold incorporated into the structure so that you don't stride to far away from the traditional anniversary themes.
