Let your latent talent woo her! If you have a talent for painting, carpentry, or if you are a wizard with high-tech gadgetry, why not create something unique and exclusive just for her? You could paint her portrait (or, alternatively, get both of you painted in oil on canvas) or make her a table, a bookcase, a shelf, just anything that she’ll like and enjoy.
Handmade card or a handwritten letter. There’s little that can beat a letter or card written in the giver’s own hand. It makes the gift so very personal and meaningful. While a store-bought card may be more extravagantly worded, it lacks your personal signature. If you are writing a letter, use good quality paper, take time over the words as you highlight all the big and small moments that have become cherished memories of the past one year. You can affix your wedding photograph on the card cover to make it really exclusive and personal.
Personalized apparel and crockery. For a newly-married couple (after one year, you still feel newly-married, right?), cute and romantic gifts continue to be charming. So, monogrammed tees, dressing gowns, coffee mugs or even personalized photo quilts and pillow cases with motifs of hearts and heartbeats make for wonderful first anniversary gifts.
Where Can You Find Good Marriage Anniversary Greeting Sentiments? A great resource I’ve found for facing tasks like this is a handy little book called Words to the Rescue. It contains dozens of wedding anniversary greetings as well as hundreds of other greetings for any occasion or event you can think of. It’s a great cure for ”social writer’s block”.
The newer and modern types include a colored background that might look good as a invitation if the author of the invitation can combine two or more colors effectively so as to be eye pleasing and to give the message that you want to send. These types of wedding anniversary invitations tend to be a more modern approach to the subject and since their combination of colors are endless I will not discuss them here.
