You could write him a letter. You could tell him what this first year has been like for you, how you feel about him, and stuff like that. 

It fits the paper theme, and it tends to mean a lot to people when they receive letters like that.

AlmostHisWife:  i guess our anniversary gift is paper – we are traveling to Ireland and Italy for our 1 year (so the plane tickets are paper lol)

Since you are on a budget, maybe a concert to see someone he likes? Or get him a nice card and make him a really fancy dinner followed by “dessert” lol

I don’t know where you live, but maybe look up free or inexpensive things to do in your city

AlmostHisWife:  You can make that yourself SO easily. Find a USA map, buy the heart and small dot stickers at a craft or dollar store.

They used to sell scratch off maps at Paper Source.  I’m not sure if they still have them, but this also might be a cute idea if you like traveling.

maybe you could check out a cool exhibit at a museum?

we didn’t mean to follow the paper theme, it just worked out that way, kind of. we went to sea world (free tickets because my husband was in the military at the time), disneyland (we had annual passes), and to the movies. not all in the same day of course, lol, we spread the festivities out over a weekend.
