Love comes in many forms, but as far as symbols go, a simple piece of paper makes the most impactful statement. It’s an easy and practical way to celebrate your first anniversary and show your significant other just how much you care. Here are some thoughtful and meaningful paper gifts that are sure to make your special day truly unforgettable.
Home-made card. Nothing says “I love you” more than a handcrafted card from the heart. Whether you prefer to write out messages of love on colorful paper or construct an entire themed card in honor of the occasion, your special someone will definitely appreciate the effort put into it. You can also pair it with a sweet handwritten poem, or fill it with meaningful photos of your time together.
Love Letters. A good old-fashioned love letter is a timeless classic that never fails to tug on heartstrings. No matter how short or long you intend your letter to be, the mere fact that you decided to take the time out to write it will warm your beloved’s soul. Perfect for expressing your undying love and devotion, it’s a gift that will be treasured for years to come.
Memory Book. If you two have been together for some time, why not compile your memories into a book? Think of it like a scrapbook, with the pages encapsulating all the moments you’ve shared since you’ve been together. Include keepsakes like ticket stubs or dried petals in between jokes, anecdotes and special memories, and your heart will be bursting with love as you read it together.
Origami Gift. Origami is not only super-easy to make, it’s also a perfect symbol of love. You can choose to make cranes, a bouquet of flowers, a box or anything you like. Plus, the options of paper materials available are practically limitless!
Photo Collage. Whether you opt for a digital or a physical version, a photo collage is an excellent reminder of the ‘sweetest’ moments in your relationship. It may take a bit of time to print out, select and assemble the photos, but it’s all worth it if you’re looking to surprise your sentimental partner.
Love Map. For the couple that loves to travel, why not create a map for your journey? All you need is a map (it could be a map of the world or the city you live in), some stickers and vibrant colors to get creative. You can then track your destinations with cute stickers or mark special spots where you’ve had special moments or events together.
Heart-Shaped Artwork. Using craft materials like foam, felt, fabric or buttons, arrange the pieces in a shape of a heart or initials of you both. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just something that speaks to the both of you.
Love Coupon. If you’re someone that loves to show love through action, why not create special handmade coupons as a way of gifting? Think of activities that you love doing together and make sure each coupon has a special reward after the activity. It’s sure to be a fun and meaningful experience.
Romantic Scavenger Hunt. With a romantic scavenger hunt, you will get your special someone excited to search for the different items on the list – and it could also be a fun and playful race too. At the end, arrange as simple prize for your beloved as a token of your appreciation.
Love Poem. If you’re a sucker for words, why not express your love through a heartfelt poem? Words never fail to deliver the sentiments of your heart. Depending on your writing style, you can choose to go with a classic sonnet or a modern one. Whatever you decide to do, make sure your special someone will be moved by it.
DIY Bouquet. Last but not least, why not gift your special one a unique bouquet of paper flowers? With some colored paper, scissors and glue, you can create a stunning paper flower bouquet. Plus, it’ll last longer than a real bouquet ever would so it’s perfect to decorate your home or to keep it as a reminder of your love.
