The first anniversary is traditionally called “The Paper Anniversary”. Maybe that’s because the ink is barely dry on the marriage certificate, and maybe it’s because year one of marriage is so young that it’s not solid enough to warrant a medal—or a metal. This list of first anniversary gifts has lots of the traditional paper represented, but we included some other elements to keep it interesting.
