Your focus right now is on your wedding day - and rightly so! It is one of the most important days of your life, and a truly unique one. But what about the days and years following? Your wedding day is the beginning of something, not a solitary event. There will be decisions to make and crossroads that you will reach over the course of your life together.

Hopefully, you and your husband will celebrate each other all year long, but one day a year will forevermore be extra special to you and your marriage - your anniversary, of course! There are many ways you can make that day memorable each year, but one of the most common is giving each other an anniversary present. And if you're anything like me...giving presents can be quite difficult!
Though it may seem silly to stick to the "traditional" anniversary themed-gifts (ie, 25th is gold, 50th is silver), it might be a good place to start. Even just to get ideas churning in your head.
Happy-Anniversary has a great table that lists all the different Traditional and Modern gift themes, plus various ideas for each one. Check it out! Its never too early to start thinking about your first anniversary...maybe you can even steal an idea or two for Christmas or his birthday.
Let me leave you with one of my favorite Anniversary ideas. On your first anniversary, find your favorite, framed picture of the two of you on your wedding day. Then, take a picture of the two of you holding that picture. On your second anniversary, frame the picture from your first anniversary, and take a picture of the two of you holding that picture. Eventually, you'll have a picture within a picture within a picture (and so forth) of the two of you from every anniversary you've ever had:
