Well if he wants a new suit why not do that? Or you could do a 1 year anniversary boidour shoot to remind him why he married you 😉 haha! Other ideas: nice wallet, tickets to a sporting event or a play he wants to see, a weekend getaway to somewhere he likes, a really nice bottle of scotch if he is a scotch drinker.

Apparently the modern first year anniversary gift is a clock. Our anniversary is coming up in 2 days, I’m giving him an engraved pocket watch.

But there’s no need to follow that, you can always buy him that nice suit that is ‘timeless’.

Yeah, I vote tickets to something awesome – game, concert, theater, whatever he would enjoy. And maybe a really nice steak dinner beforehand!

@MrsRichard:  If he likes watches and has a few, what about a really a nice watch box? They usually run ~$150 depending on the kind you get.

@MrsRichard:  for our first anniversary DH asked for some cologne which I think cost $115? I asked for a set of windchimes which were $130 I think… Then we took a road trip to the grand canyon since its fairly close (8 hour drive??) which probably cost $500 for gas/food/hotel… It was really nice to DO something together… 

if he had wanted a suit or something more expensive I would have gotten it for him… I know it’s supposed to be the paper anniversary but I think you both should just get whatever you want 🙂

this year I would live to go to Vegas and binge drink on slushies but I am pretty sure it’s a terrible idea cuz I’ll be 35weeks and I’m sure my alcohol tolerance has gone from a little to zilch lol!

@MrsRichard:  we’d never been to the Grand Canyon before even tho we’ve been in Utah for like 5 years :/   The drive was kinda boring visually, but great for just some “us time” to talk and catch up… Then when you’re at the park (south rim) you can drive and stop at like 30 different spots to check out the views… Very little walking if you don’t want (which would be nice for us preggers)… We had a blast and it was pretty cheap, like maybe $20 to get into the park… We stayed at a hotel just outside the canyon which we got on Priceline… It made heading back thru the next day really easy tho we mostly saw it all that first day…. If you haven’t been you should totally go… Bring post card stamps 🙂
