@Brideonabudgetlauren:  I’m going the traditional route and getting him something paper. I thought about giving him a newspaper – maybe a back print issue from the day and city we got married in, and one from the city we are taking our anniversary trip in. I ended up changing my mind, but it is still a fun idea!

 I decided on having a custom drawing done from a photograph of our ceremony spot at the wedding venue. I’m going to put it in a cute frame and think it will be a really awesome thing to have for years to come! We can always display it and move it around to different areas of the house as a reminder if the vows we made. 

Some other ideas if you go the paper route:

tickets to a sporting event or concert.

homemade coupon book 

print of your first dance photo, matted on the lyrics of the song

gift certificate for a couples massage 


a nice journal, if he is a writer 

handwritten letters – one to open each month 

a jar filled with little folded papers, each with a different date idea on it

something to repurpose wedding cards you got – a little cutout collage or shadowbox

Photo book or scrapbook of your first year together

@Brideonabudgetlauren:  I found an etsy vendor to do the drawing – I am so excited to see it! 

I know what you are talking about, those things are so cool! You can tell I have been thinking about this a lot lately haha, that is why all these ideas are fresh in my mind.
