Congratulations on your 1st Year Anniversary!

Gift Ideas

1. Take and make a scrapbook of your first year together and present it to him.

2. Cook his favorite meal.

3. Make up a picnic and take him to a park, zoo or somewhere nice and secluded and enjoy the afternoon together.

Congratulations on your 1st anniversary! :luv:

We celebrated ours last month. Apparently, the first year anniversary calls for a gift made of paper. I gave him a "Battleship" lottery ticket (didn't win though), and I had a second gift which was not related to paper but it was small. He gave me a journal so we could write about our journey together as a couple. He actually started writing on it... he wrote about our interview at the consulate (which happened two days before our first year anniversary). That was fun to read.
