Our 1st anniversary is coming up in 3 weeks (eek!) and I want to get him something special but I have no idea what! I can’t to a boudior shoot like I wanted because I wont be down to the size I promised myself I would be. (I don’t want to have half naked pictures of me in a size I am unhappy with) And he isn’t into jewelry or watches or anything… I am so stuck!
What do you guys plan on getting him when your anniversary rolls around?

Traditionally, there is a corresponding type of gift for each year of marriage:
First anniversary is paper – so maybe tickets to something? A sporting event, theatre show, etc.?

I made a framed gift with paper–the background was the sheet music from a song performed at our wedding and on top cut out hearts from an atlas with the cities from where we met, wed, and live.

I like the ticket idea, I got Darling Husband Bruce Springstein tickets

I did the boudoir shoot… But I didn’t have any pictures printed… (I am only 10 pounds less than our wedding day, and I hoped to weigh less, so I understand what you are saying)… I had an electronic keepsake album made… it came in a little leather case… It is technically a album to put pictures on and carry in your purse or something but I put the pictures on there for him, and no one else will see them now….
I did print 1 of my favorites for the paper symbol of 1 year, and I got him a card as well. My experience was different though because my best friend, who was also my maid of honor, took the pictures for me (she did our Epics also, she LOVES photography, it is her hobby)…. But my hubby LOVED them and said that I looked hot… as long as you have fun with the pictures, he will think your gorgeous!!!!!
Good Luck!! 🙂 Happy early anniversary!
