5 Sentimental First Anniversary Gifts


5 Sentimental First Anniversary Gifts
Putting a lot of thought into your anniversary gift?
Picking out a gift for the first anniversary can be difficult. We give you five romantic ideas.

Do you own a copy of the first movie you held hands to? Were there restaurants, museums, bars or other places from which you can get gift cards, a sweatshirt or some other reminder of the time you spent there together? Fill the box with gifts tied to the things that made you fall in love in the beginning, then close it up and decorate it.

5. Scavenger hunt. A scavenger hunt can be a fun way to tie together a number of small, special gifts. Leave meaningful clues throughout the house ("The first place we kissed when we moved in"), that direct your spouse toward a big gift or to you. Along with clues, leave smaller gifts like a favorite book, a framed picture of the two of you or a note detailing your upcoming dinner reservation at the restaurant where you got engaged. Have fun with it and your spouse will too.
