My husband got me rose gold studs for our first anniversary. Other things I would like are: tickets to a show or concert, a piece of art, a nice bible, maybe a Christmas ornament.

1st Anniversary is paper so tickets to a concert are a great idea.

Sunglasses definitely come to mind.  I love designer shades.  I’ve also been wanting a great statement necklace.  A massage would also be great!

A lot of Etsy stores have good return policies.  I bet you could find something you love from a shop that lets you return it if it’s not perfect.

Kind of random, but I really want a clarisonic! lol

I think I might like something more sentimental & lasting, like jewelry, though. I would totally ask for an etsy ring…as another PP mentioned, many have great return policies. Just read the seller’s reviews!

I know you said you were nervous about Etsy, but I’ve seen so much beautiful jewelry on there.  Maybe find some other piece of jewelry you know you would wear, regardless of perfection? 

There’s plenty of cute stuff (my fav seller is Karen Yost of Anomaly Jewelry:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/AnomalyJewelry  Her stuff is not for everyone, but SO CUTE, and very well made.  She often has discounts on her Facebook page, too.)  I have her Standing Fawn necklace:

Otherwise, I vote for an experience – like babymakes3 suggested.  Maybe a concert?  Or a day out at an awesome museum if you have one within comfortable driving distance?

I’d keep looking for a rose gold band in your price range, sunglasses just don’t seem very special. Darling Husband bought me some rose gold charms from helen ficalora but I think one runs $125…

I like the ticket idea as well, I bought Darling Husband tickets to see Bruce Springstein (this Friday!)

I would say a necklace. I would save the band for the 5 year.

I’d probably ask for a diamond or gemstone pendant necklace. Or, I’d ask him to go to the outlets and get me a new Coach purse.

For $150 I would ask for artwork. I think it’s something that can last a lifetime and it could technically qualify as a “paper” gift? We were really adamant about sticking to the paper gift theme.
