    I don’t think its a big deal if you’re not big on gifts! Some people are, some aren’t… no biggy. We’ve only had one wedding anniversary so far but we did dinner, a comedy show, and gifts. Although to be honest only SORTA gifts haha. Since it was our first anniversary (paper) we both got the other tickets! I got my Darling Husband tickets to see Ron White (our favorite comedian) and he got me an IOU for tickets to see Dave Matthews (my fav band) because the tickets weren’t going on sale for another week. Well, then we looked at getting the DMB tickets and they were SUPER expensive and we had so much other stuff going on this summer I kind of just told him not to worry about it. He wanted ot get me something else but I liked the idea behind his gift, even if it didn’t end up working out haha. 

    Moving forward I do think we will still get each other gifts, but probably smaller stuff except for big anniversaries.

    We plan to celebrate with just dinner and a small gift, so I chose other.  I think going without gifts is fine, if you’re not big gift giving people, but I like giving and recieving gifts so that’s what we plan to do.  Not anything extravagant though, honestly we’ve talked about putting a $20 cap on anniversary gifts and I quite like that idea.  I do think it would be nice to get a small token to remind you that you thought of each other though.  Big parties and fancy trips seem to me like the kind of thing that should be reserved for the milestone anniversaries, namely the 20th, but again, if that’s your thing then go for it.  I guess what I’m trying to say is do whatever you and your husband are most comfortable with, whatever works best for the two of you.  🙂  For us I think that will be dinner and a small gift.

    It’s definitely not bad to just go out to dinner yearly & then do something elaborate on the big anniversaries. Darling Husband & I went away for a week to Miami, Florida for our first anniversary. He wants to take a trip yearly for our anniversary, but I’m just fine with going to dinner and exchanging small gifts. He insists on doing something big yearly, but I think once he sees how costly that’ll be (especially with the arrival of a new baby soon), he’ll change his tune!

    I don’t really think gifts are necessary. Like, I know a lot of couples exchange gifts on their wedding day. We paid for the wedding ourselves so we just gave each other a nice card.

    Since this year is our first anniversary, we’re going away to our favorite B&B in Maine for a few days and exchanging cards. Next year will probably just be dinner out and maybe something small if we do gifts at all.

    I would maybe expect some jewelry or something for a significant anniversary (10th, 25th) 🙂
