Romantic First Anniversary Gifts

One of the most romantic first anniversary gifts is to start a tradition or collection that can be added to each year. The starting of such a tradition shows confidence that the marriage will last, and the resulting collection is a source of pride and accomplishment for the couple. It makes the first anniversary special and also makes the ritual of celebrating future anniversaries more special and more simple at the same time!

For example, one 1 year wedding anniversary gift could be a first edition book or piece of artwork. A new book or piece of art could be added to the collection in each successive year, resulting in an extensive and valuable collection after many years of marriage. These gifts celebrate one spouse's appreciation for the other's literary or artistic tastes and show a willingness to appreciate and share them.

A piece of jewelry that could be enhanced each year is one of the best first anniversary gift ideas. For example, on the first anniversary, the husband could present his wife with a necklace with one pearl or diamond or other precious stone. On each successive anniversary, an additional precious stone could be added to the necklace. This would also work with a bracelet, or even an anniversary ring, although additional rings would hopefully be needed as the length of the marriage grows. The result would be a beautiful and valuable piece of jewelry that celebrates the marriage.

Among other first wedding anniversary gift ideas are an annual trip or a spa weekend for two. The first year, this trip would be a "second honeymoon". Each year, the spouses could take turns selecting a destination based on their interests and goals for the trip. These adventures could be mostly for fun but could also include an element of reflection on the progress in the relationship and hopes and goals for the future. Scrapbooks or photo albums from these adventures can provide a source of common memories and enjoyment through the years.

Another 1st wedding anniversary present could be the beginning of a collection of holiday decorations. Many manufacturers of fine china, crystal and silver offer special edition ornaments each year. Beginning with a gift on the first anniversary, this collection can grow and become a source of memories as holiday decorations are placed each year.

For couples that enjoy fine food and wine, the first year anniversary gifts could include a wine cellar or recipe box crafted from a fine material. The intent would be to begin building a recipe archive, a collection of fine cookware, or starting a fine wine collection can be a way of celebrating the relationship as well as providing a source of supplies and equipment for entertaining and enjoyment.

Regardless of which romantic first anniversary gifts are chosen, a gift that can signify the beginning of a long collection or tradition is the most romantic of first anniversary gifts. A gift that signals a commitment of many years is a reaffirmation of the wedding vows and a vote of confidence in a lasting union.
