What should i get my wife for our one year anniversary?

I'd like to get her something novel, original and inspiring... and ideally (though not necessarily) in the theme of traditional one year anniv (i.e. paper). Would especially love to hear from those of you who gave or received a gift that was particularly well received. :) Thanks!

I have three favorite first anniversary gift ideas. I have received none of these but would love any of them!

1) Paper Roses. There are many companies who will make exquisite Red (or any other) paper roses. They last FAR longer than real roses, can be personalized quite easily and are really beautiful. Here is a good site: http://www.justpaperroses.com/

2) A message in a bottle is a very romantic gift and lasts forever as well. It can be a really good keepsake to remind you of your first year of marriage.

3) A custom made poem. This site is AWESOME. http://agiftofpoetry.com/index.php. You can give them a BUNCH of personalized information and they will write you a poem and go through the editing process with you etc.

Now, I might suggest doing all three or two of three. IE: get the poem, put it in a message in a bottle or, get the poem and put it inside some of the roses or create a rose that needs to be unfolded to be read.

Good luck!

Those are awesome ideas! I haven't written poetry since highschool (that's an entirely different conversation...) and had no idea that there was such a service; awesome. Thank you!

Why don't you give her a tree... paper right? If you have a garden, you could plant one (or even container garden). If you don't have space for one, you could invest in one being planted.

This is very cool! www.mydreamlines.com offers a sketch 'on paper' of your wife's wedding gown. You email some photos to them and they will sketch it. You receive it and frame it to give to your wife. This would be good for any year anniversary!

These ideas are great. All I can add is make sure you guys don't forget the way to a woman's heart is with a thoughtful card. Store bought paper cards written with someone else's words are good but they aren't going to win you any prizes for effort and creativity. If you truly want to wow her and make her melt go to www.glasscards.biz, it takes literally only a few minutes to choose a design, choose your words and fonts, and your customized glass card arrives in the mail a few days later. Happy wife, happy life!
