The Traditional Anniversary Gift List
A traditional anniversary gift list is a fun way to find innovative ways to celebrate a wedding anniversary or the anniversary of a long-term committed relationship.
Anniversary gifts do not necessarily have to be traditional, but can be a modern and unique twist on the traditional anniversary gifts for each year.
For instance, for first anniversary gift ideas, instead of paper how about making a scrapbook of your first year as newlyweds? Include some pictures of the wedding, the honeymoon, and other big events that may have happened that first year. Did you two buy a house? Did you go on a vacation abroad?
Make sure that your paper scrapbook anniversary gift is made with archival paper so that you will be able to enjoy the anniversary present for many years and anniversaries to come!
Or if you giving anniversary gifts for a one-year anniversary, how about getting the still newlywed couple some really nice stationery with their names and addresses pre-printed? This could be a very classy addition to their office and fulfill the traditional anniversary gift list item for paper.
