Weddings Anniversary Gifts for your First Wedding Anniversary

The first wedding anniversary is one of most special firsts in a married couple’s life. At finder.com.au, we have gift ideas that will make your first anniversary truly unforgettable.

The first wedding anniversary is special. Not only are you celebrating your first full year as a married couple, but the first anniversary sets the tone for the years to come. Your love is fresh, your future stretches out before you and that’s definitely a reason to celebrate.

Traditionally, paper gifts are given on the first wedding anniversary. Paper symbolises the fresh start of a new marriage, like a blank piece of paper. Get creative and you’ll find plenty of romantic paper gift ideas, such as personalised photobooks, diaries or unique prints.

How to choose gifts for your first wedding anniversary

Every relationship is different and you need to consider what your partner does (or doesn't) like, as well as how your relationship works. Sentimentality is essential for your first wedding anniversary gift. It is a chance to show your devotion and loyalty and could make your relationship even stronger. Here are some things to consider when choosing your special gift:

  1. What are some memorable moments you have shared over the course of your relationship?
    From your wedding song to that delicious wine you shared on your first date, think about all of those moments you have shared with your husband or wife that have been unforgettable. It could be your first holiday together, or even just a movie that you both loved. These memories will surely give you inspiration in looking for in a sentimental first anniversary gift. Weaving these memories into your gift will definitely impress your partner.
  2. What are some of your spouse’s favourite things?
    If your wife’s favourite flavour is chocolate, why not buy her some chocolate-scented candles? If your husbands’ favourite colour is blue, why not look into some silver and blue cufflinks? If you know your partner's favourite things, the possibilities are endless! Think about their favourite foods, wines, sports, hobbies, or even clothing brands. Your partner will surely be impressed with the detail you put into your gift.
  3. What kind of personality do they have?
    Is your wife the type of person that loves to curl up with a good book? An e-book tablet might be the way to go. Does your husband spend most of the weekend mountain biking? Think about their personal qualities. Does your partner love adventure? Consider a spontaneous getaway! Or if your partner is especially sentimental, a photo album full of treasured memories is sure to get a great response.
  4. What are the traditional gifts for the first anniversary?
    Paper is the traditional gift to give on your first anniversary. You can make a photo album or scrapbook, giving your gift a real personal touch. Carnations and pansies are the traditional flower gifts for the first wedding anniversary. Carnations come in an array of colours, so you can personalise the arrangement to suit your partner. They symbolise admiration – a beautiful way to tell your partner how much you respect and cherish them. Pansies represent a message of loving thoughts. If you are in a long-distant relationship, or you aren’t together on your first year anniversary, these are the perfect flowers to send the right message.
  5. What do their family or close friends suggest?
    If you’re really stressing out about finding the perfect first anniversary gift, have a chat with your in-laws or friends – they may have a few ideas you haven’t thought of yet. However, whatever gift you decide to buy, make sure it’s personal. The best gifts are a reflection of thoughtful details.
