My one year isn’t until July but I plan on getting him a bunch of pictures of me I am going to do for a bouduere (speling?) shoot. 

I think we might go to Amsterdam to celebrate. Or somewhere else.

I wanted to do the “traditional” anniversary gifts, so went with something “paper” and bought Eric Church tickets.  I also thought about doing a boudoir shoot and making a photo album (I asked him when I first heard about them what he thought of them and he loved the idea), but I just waited too long.  Maybe a V-Day gift one year.

I wanted to stick with the traditional gift of paper.  So I got him an expensive chronological bible that he had been eyeing for a while.  And had it personalised.

Gee, I wasn’t even thinking “paper” but I made a Shutterfly album of pictures from our honeymoon so I guess I’m inadvertently traditional!

We went on a trip to San Francisco and to a nice, expensive dinner that was partly our present to each other. Then  there were a few concerts we wanted to go to so instead of exchanging presents we just bought tickets to the three concerts.

We are going to a book festival during the day – which I guess is paper-related – and then out for dinner to our favourite restaurant! Not doing presents but we’re putting all our money into doing work on our house at the moment, so going out for dinner is a huge treat anyway!

I got my husband one of those dog tag necklace and had our wedding day engraved and a line from the verse that was read on our wedding day. I also got a notebook and  im going to make it  tradition that every year we write about that year of marriage and put a photo of us from that anniversary.

We are a little non-traditional. Instead of exchanging gifts, we purchase something together. For our first anniversary we got an antique clock. This works really well for us… in large part because our anniversary comes between Christmas and Valentines Day, so it ensures we celebrate without running out of ideas!

We agreed before we got married that we would never do anniversary gifts because our anniversary is too close to Christmas.

I’m thinking a box of nice cigars… I don’t really give a hoot about traditional paper, etc. gifts.

@swarlesk:  For our 1 year anniversary we are planning on going to Italy & Ireland. We decided that we want to start TTC, so that we should do one more big trip because after we conceive, we will be saving a lot more. I mean we plan to save even before we start TTC, but even more after the fact.
