The traditional material for a one-year wedding anniversary gift is paper. Gifts made of paper make meaningful gifts for celebrating a one-year anniversary with a boyfriend also. Gifts made of materials besides paper can wow your man as well. Whatever material you decide to give, make sure it comes from the heart.

Wedding Vows

Give your husband a paper copy of your wedding vows. Print or write by hand the vows you spoke to your soul mate on your big day. Frame the paper so you can preserve and display it somewhere in your home like your bedroom. If you did not write your own vows on your wedding day, but instead used the traditional ones, use your anniversary as an opportunity to write vows. Give your husband a copy of what you vow to do as of your first anniversary.

Reasons I Love You

Create a romantic gift that reflects the many reasons you love your man as an anniversary gift. This can be in the form of a handcrafted book that lists one reason you love him for each page of the book. Think of his physical characteristics or personality traits as well as kind things that he has done for you. Another option is to create many notes in tiny envelopes with one reason you love him on each note. He can open one envelope each day until there are no more left.


Write your man an original poem as a one-year anniversary gift. Write a poem that follows a free verse or rhyme format that reflects your feelings towards your significant other. Type or write the poem by hand on decorative paper. Frame the poetry or roll it up and put it in a decorative bottle to give the gift a message-in-a-bottle theme. Add real or silk rose petals in the frame or inside the bottle.


Give the man in your life a piece of meaningful jewellery as a gift on your one-year anniversary. Pick jewellery that fits your budget as well as the strength of your relationship. Choose from a ring, necklace, bracelet, stud earrings, cuff links, tie clip, pocket watch, wristwatch or pin. To further personalise the jewellery you select, have it engraved with a short message, his initials, his name or the date of your anniversary. If you are married, upgrade your husband's wedding band by adding a diamond.
