as mammymcphee said your 1st anniversary is paper I don't know how into this your husband might be but i I made up a big collage of all our wedding bits bobs and put in a mounted frame for my oh. He loved it. I tried to keep it all in order of how things went, so like it started with our hen and stag do's so I had a card my sisters made me and everyone signed it on our night. I had no idea what to do with it after the wedding and didnt want to put it in a box so that went on. Then i put on one of our invites with all the inserts attached. His grannys RSVP with here name on it. :) The cd of the song i walked up the aisle to. a booklet on our venue that we got when we booked it. Our menu from the tables. We kept the seating arrangement and our name place cards, and we kept the best mans speech. In between all that i put in cards we received from close friends and family. It took quite a bit of time to put together, but we had all these bits and bobs that were precious to us to keep but no where to put them and now we have it in a frame on our wall. its a lovely keep sake and my oh loved it so much. He even got a little teary :lvs

what about a photobook, from either Photos from when you started going out, right up to your first year of marraige OR Photos from your wedding, honeymoon and your first year of marraige or Do a secret boudoir photo session and get some nice prints done? I am the same lullabelle...our anniversaries are the same day, i was going to get the secret boudoir photo session done,...but bit pointless (as you can see from my ticker)

My mum told me that the other traditional gift for a first wedding anniversary is a clock. I would have bought DH a watch but he won't wear one - I found him cufflinks made from old watches instead in NY. I'm sure they can be bought online: [url:1vtg93fe][/url:1vtg93fe] He loves them.
