First Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas


Congratulations are in order – it’s your first wedding anniversary! No doubt you’re planning on surprising one another with a gift to celebrate this happy milestone. If you want to stick to anniversary tradition, we’ve got your gift guide sorted, whether you choose classic wedding anniversary symbols or their modern counterparts.

Traditionally, the first wedding anniversary is celebrated with paper gifts, symbolising the newness of marriage. It represents the blank slate on which your love story will be written, and the delicacy of your new status as Mr and Mrs – the years haven’t given you the strength only time can give. Alternatively, the modern couple opt for clocks on their first wedding anniversary, symbolising the eternity of your love. What style of gift will you be buying your sweetheart?
