Any great ideas for one year anniversary presents?

My one year anniversary is coming up August 15th! I know that traditionally the one year gift is something paper-related. I've checked out some websites but nothing has really caught my attention. Has anyone done anything really cool or creative? Thanks!

Re: Any great ideas for one year anniversary presents?

  • How much do you want to spend?

    Tickets are always fun- can be as cheap as movie tickets, all the way up to airline tickets for a vacation you plan.

  • DH and I semi-eloped (guestless destination wedding). I ended up getting him a printed book of our wedding pictures. If I wasn't in the hospital for our anniversary, I was also going to do either a map of the virgin islands (where we were married) or one of those pictures where they do the sky on any evening, in any place.

     He got me an LP collection I wanted, and tickets to see my favorite band. We missed it because of my surgery situation, but it got me out of my funk until I realized I couldn't go.

  • I got my DH tix (paper!) to see Seinfeld in October.  I also went to and had a mosaic made from our wedding photos and framed it to match our bedroom.

  • Last year, DH got me tickets.  This year (our 2nd) we have forgone the traditional gifts all together.  It just seems too forced to us.

  • We just celebrated our one year and DH got me concert tickets to see Zac Brown. I went to shutterfly and made him a photo book of our 1st year of marriage. I was going to scrap book it myself. It ended up being cheaper to do it this way because there are always coupons. The turn around time on it was quick too, only a few days.
