Our one year anniversary is approaching and I was wondering if you could help me find/make a unique paper anniversary gift for my darling husband. I’ve been searching through Etsy but I can’t seem to find the wow factor I am looking for. What did you do? Planning to do? If you DIY’ed your gifts please share as I am pretty crafty and feel like the gift would be even more sentimental if I made it myself.
Thank you in advance!

I’m thinking way ahead because it’s not til May, but if I were buying something maybe a signed book from an author he likes, or concert tickets. As for homemade, I’ve saved a bunch of our ticket stubs and pamphlets from when we’ve gone away for basically our whole relationship so I could do a scrapbook type thing.

prinzesschen : For our one year (end of this month) I got our vows which we wrote together written out by the calligrapher who did our invites and escort cards and framed it. Its gorgeous! Shes very reasonable, let me know if you want her info!

MrsBuesleBee : that sounds pretty nice but we decided on having traditional vows so I am not sure if it’ll be as personal as yours is.
plannerbear520 : come to think of it, tickets sound nice, I might look into that 🙂

My husband gave me a sketch of my wedding dress and his suit. My husband copied off of my brother who gave this to my SIL for their one year. Her’s was so impressive and I am so happy he took my cues! They both used Dreamlines. I have since ordered two more from them for a shower and wedding gift. Nikki is the owner and just so helpful. I am addicted! 🙂 Good luck in your search!

My husband got me an anniversary sundial, it is a cool clock that uses the sun to tell the time. Actually, he gave me a paper gift certificate for it so we could figure out where in our house to put it. He found it online and it sits on the windowsill and makes rainbows when the sun hits it, and has a date line that the sun shadow follows each year on our anniversary. I thought it was a clever way to do both traditional (paper) and modern (clock) gift ideas in one!
