It's the beauty of being in the company of the one you love that you enjoy each other so much that you do not even know when weeks become months and months become a year. Although, most of the time, it is expected that men would fuss over their women on such occasions by gifting them something unique or taking them out to some nice place for food and fun, yet, if you want to show your man how much you love and appreciate him, you can do the same for him. 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.
1st Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas
A Weekend Far Away!
Plan a weekend for just the two of you to some picturesque place, away from the noise and chaos of the city. Or, if there is a place where you two went for a holiday together for the first time, then one of the romantic gifts can be to arrange a visit to the same place and relive your memories. Or if you two are the adventurous sorts, you can even try out things like skydiving or paragliding together on your anniversary.
As is said that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, so why not cook for him his favorite dishes on your first anniversary? Along with the food, keep a bottle of wine and some heart-shaped chocolates. Decorate the table for just the two of you, complete with candlelight and flowers. It is indeed one of the most romantic first anniversary gift ideas for your husband.
Scrapbook Made by You
If you are looking for some creative first anniversary gift ideas for him, then a scrapbook made by you, with both of your photographs will be just perfect. You can paste a number of photographs of your first holiday together, a dinner you might have gone together to and enjoyed, or photographs of how you spent your birthdays after your wedding. 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.
A Piece of Art
If the special someone in your life appreciates art, then you can consider a painting about love and life as first wedding anniversary gift for him. Or if he loves to read, you can gift him his favorite author's books. I am sure both these gifts will instantly bring a smile to his face.
If you plan to go all traditional, then make a gift for him on your first anniversary with paper (First anniversary gifts being associated with paper traditionally). There are a number of ways in which you can make gifts with paper.
This is one of the most unusual ideas to surprise your spouse. You can hide yourself in a beautifully decorated cardboard and let your spouse unwrap it. This would be a big surprise for your man as he would be least expecting you inside a cardboard!
Most men usually pretend that gifts and such small romantic gestures are not important. But believe me, when you do throw a surprise at him, he will love you even more for your effort and the thought behind it.
