A wedding anniversary is a very special time. If you truly want to celebrate, use one of the gift ideas below.
1. Give A Journal
Stick with me here. I know this doesn't sound very creative, but have you heard of Q&A journals? This is a project that you and your spouse can work on together. Each day, you both answer a question in the journal. You can do this for one year or even longer, if you wish. When it is complete, you have a beautiful record of your time spent together in the beginning of your marriage.
2. Utilize Tradition
There is a traditional wedding gift for each of the first five years of marriage, and then for the 10th, 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries. For example, the first is paper, the second is cotton, the third is leather, the fourth is fruit/flowers, and the fifth is wood. Use tradition, but put your own personal touch on the gift.
3. "Travel" to Another City from Home
Is your budget tight? Consider ordering a "city in a box," so you and your loved one can experience another city from the comfort of home. These boxes generally cost less than a hundred dollars, and they arrive with local products that will help you get a feel for a particular city. Spend time "exploring" with your spouse in a unique way!
