Our first anniversary gift is coming up fast, and I have no idea what to get my husband! It would be fun to stay within the first anniversary tradition (paper) but I’m open to other ideas. I thought about tickets, but there aren’t many good tickets to be had for an under $75 budget 🙂 Any ideas?

Tickets for a sports game, gift certificate for a nice dinner, maybe movie and dinner?

Fortunately there are lots of creative bees that have tackled this. Phew!
Some of my favorites from other threads:
1) Paper gift certificate for his favorite store
2) A poster of the sky over the town you were married in (Indigonight.com)
3) A scrapbook of your first year together or maybe engagement photos
4) Custom jigsaw puzzle
5) Something wooden b/c wood is made from paper
I hear ya though b/c I’m facing the same problem! I don’t think he would go for #2 bc he likes picking out art together. I doubt he would want a scrapbook and he’s not into puzzles. I’m not sure about #1 bc if you share a bank account isn’t it like giving his own money back to himself?

I went for a book that he wanted to read. He combined our anniversary and Valentine’s day (well, kindof.. he bought something just because, not specifically for those occasions, I just said it covered both since he doesn’t think about this stuff..) and bought me tickets for a concert.
I personally like to give things that he can keep so that when he looks at it, he thinks of it as an anniversary gift.
A framed picture for his office maybe?
