Comments Off on Gifting in Permanence: Show Love on Your First Anniversary with a Gift On Paper
A traditional first anniversary gift is often a sentimental symbol of the love and commitment between two people who, through their bond, is able to withstand the test of time, even more so during this economic and social upheaval. An altogether romantic and creative idea is to create your own personalized gift! Here’s some ideas that can stir up some inspiration:
1. An Open When Letters Gift
These little love letters are not only a sweet gesture but also a heartfelt bunch to look back on even after years to come. Gather up a few sheets of love notes on different topics, and tuck them into envelopes marked “Open When…” “Open When You Feel Sad” or “Open When You Need A Laugh”. Ponder the moments where it would be great to have these little letters to open, and fill the envelopes with sweet messages and instructions for your partner.
2. Picture Perfect Memory Book
Put together a collection of wonderful memories from the past year, and make it tangible with a Memory Book. Select the most precious photos from the year, funny quotes from inside jokes, and heartfelt notes from date nights. Nothing says “I cherish you” better than a gorgeous physical compilation of the warmest moments. You could also combine this with a personalized fingerprint heart in the cover of the Book.
3. A Scavenger Hunt Of Love
Set up a romantic scavenger hunt that leads to several locations to various fun surprises, fun activities, love notes, and ultimately end the day with a beautiful dinner. Add a festive twinkle to the event with unique decorations and themes, and celebrate your day with a heart-filled love story.
4. Build A Time Capsule
Let this memorable day be a reflection of your beautiful journey in life together. Create your own Time Capsule with heartfelt items that remind you of your world together, such as movie tickets or receipts from your dates, and a love letter for the future.
5. A Dream Come True Adventure
Plan the dream trip you always wished for, and surprise your partner with it. Whether its exploring the beauty of the Selous Game Reserve or the yachting life in the Mediterranean, an extravagant experience is an unforgettable way of saying “you mean the world to me.”
6. A Moment of Reflection
Sometimes, the simplest of gifts packs the biggest emotional impact. Find a quiet location during sunrise or sunset, and admire the beauty of the moment. Share your innermost thoughts to each other, the things that binds you together, and your dreams for the future.
7. Old School Games
Sometimes, you don’t have to go big or grandiose to show your love. Come up with a fun and intimate evening of playing games like monopoly, scrabble, or life. Enjoy the playfulness and nostalgia of the evening, made even more memorable with gourmet snacks and drinks.
8. Personalized Cookie Box
Say it with love and sweetness. You can make or buy heart-shaped cookies inscribed with your names, wedding date, and a romantic message. Then, craft a personalized box, carefully wrap it with a bow, and tuck the items of your choice inside.
9. An Epic Basket Of Treats
Enlist your partner’s favorite things: a favorite wine, film, snack, book, music, or anything else that your partner enjoys, and create a gift basket with each of these items tucked inside. You can make it extra special with little mementos like homemade cookies and handwritten love letters dotted around the items.
10. A Magical Date Of Wonder
Surprise your partner with a romantic getaway or weekend retreat. Head over to a tranquil and beautiful surrounding, filled with stars in the night sky and mouthwatering meals both at the hotel and around town.
These are only a few of the many possibilities for creating a memorable, traditional first anniversary gift. Whichever you choose, be sure that the gift is heartfelt, personal, and conveys lasting emotions of love.
