Choosing a gift for a man, especially if it's a special occasion like the first anniversary, is not easy. So, here is a list of gifts that you can surprise him with.

Or if you two are the adventurous sorts, you can even try out things like skydiving or paragliding together on your anniversary.

On each page you can write some romantic quotes or some heart-felt messages, if you're good with words. Your man will definitely appreciate your effort.
If you're a bit confused as what to gift your man and the anniversary is just a few days away, then you can probably give him money. As with money your spouse can buy what he would love to have or indulge in. This can be kept as the last option to gift.
A Piece of Art

A Letter
Expressing your love through a letter is the best way to express your feelings towards your spouse. No other thing can be compared to a love letter. It has your true feelings penned down in words which I am sure will spellbound your husband.
