Love Q&A: Paper Anniversary Gift?


The Nest Q&A

Any ideas for a creative first anniversary gift for my husband using the traditional paper theme?


First off, don’t worry about spending a lot of money -- like many newlyweds, you're probably saving for a house or paying off debt. Instead, focus on “together” gifts. You can go with the paper theme by giving your husband tickets to a show or a gift certificate for dancing lessons -- two activities you can do as a couple. You can also create a scrapbook chronicling your first year as husband and wife (sites like and can help you put it together). If you’re not strapped for cash, the only paper gift worth giving is a plane ticket. Holla!
