The first anniversary is the paper anniversary right? Maybe a handmade card with a letter or poem. 

I don’t know if you send each other letters, but I know a hand written letter my partner wrote me is one of my most treasured gifts.

Can you plan some activity or meal for your trip away together when he gets back? That would give him something specific to get excited about (besides going away with you, of course!)

There might be some ideas on Etsy or Pinterest for paper crafty stuff you could make, but I like PP’s idea of a letter since you want to be romantic, and the traditional first anniversary gift is paper. Or something like this: https://ziploc.com/en/inspiration/activities-and-crafts/family-fun/small-but-mighty-ways-to-say-i-love-you where you put together a deck of cards with reasons why you love him.

For our first (paper) anniversary, I hired a calligrapher to write our vows. We’d wrtten our vows together, so they were unique and special to us. And then I framed it and gave it to him. We have it hanging in our bedroom now.
