I’m looking for ideas for gifts for DH for our first anniversary, and I’m trying to stick to the paper theme, and inexpensive. What kind of gifts did you give for your first anniversary? Did it fit into the paper tradition?

One idea I love is tickets to something. The tickets count as the paper but then you also get to go to a concert/baseball game/football game/show as part of your anniversary gift too. I like the idea of a framed map – maybe something that has to do with where you got married. I am thinking of getting my husband a print that says “Wilco” on it and add the name of our first dance song (A wilco song) underneath with our wedding date and info to hang in his guitar room. http://blogs.delawareonline.com/pulpculture/files/2010/03/wilmo1.jpg
Also, clocks is the modern day version of the paper anniversary! Here are some other gift ideas – http://www.happy-anniversary.com/year-of-marriage/index.html

I did a boudoir shoot for my husband and had a book made. I also got him a travel book for places we want to travel to in the future.

Did you look at the happy-anniversary.com link? They had the funniest suggestion for Modern Plastic 1st year anniversary gift (instead of the Traditional Paper gift)– adult toys–bwahahahaha

I bought my husband a book. It’s called The Vault and they have it for all of the different football teams. He loved it.

If you search the boards there are TONS of threads with great ideas!
I’ve been contemplating a few ideas:
I really like Mrs Ballet Flats “52 Favors” Idea
Our First Anniversary: His Gift
I love the idea of having our vows that we wrote our selves framed. I’m thinking a professional calligrapher and having “Our Vows” letterpressed.
Another I’m thinking of is a handmade book of 365 reasons why I love you
getting a professional pencil sketch of a fave wedding pic
