First Wedding Anniversary Gifts

Happy Tuesday, ladies! Let's hop right in and take a look at some of my favorite gift ideas for first wedding anniversaries.

Monogrammed stationery is at the top of my list for almost any occasion, but for a wedding anniversary it's particularly charming if the bride has taken her new husband's name. Such a sweet sentiment when coming from the proud groom. 

In this digital world, a beautiful pen might not get used as much as it would have in past generations, but I would jump at every chance! Men and women alike will both appreciate the gesture. {Have it engraved with your wedding date for bonus points!}

Tickets. The options are endless! Take your husband on a date to see his favorite band or football team and promise not to complain :). Lee and I are taking a trip to New York City for our anniversary and I plan on printing our boarding passes from the United app {digital world, remember :)} and framing them to keep. Do the same with your tickets to help hold on to that memory.
Where did you and your husband fall in love? Is there a city that is significant to your relationship? Find a drawing or print that helps tell your love story. With so many creative artists on Etsy, it will be hard to choose one!

The vows that you recited in front of your family and friends are so meaningful, but so easily forgotten in the day to day. This beautiful print from Southern Weddings is the perfect reminder to celebrate those very important words.

Lastly, if all else fails, a love letter can mean so much more than a gift ever can. Tell your spouse exactly how many days you've loved them with this personalized card and have it framed afterward. Fun fact: I wrote my vows on Emily's 'You're My Very Favorite' card <3
