A picnic basket is a promise. You can’t just let it sit around collecting dust. No. You’ve gotta fill it with food on a regular basis and take it places. It doesn’t always have to be wine and risotto. Sandwiches and soft drinks are fine, too. But you’ve got to use it.
Traditionally the first anniversary gift should be something made of paper and we think that this deck of cards is one of the best paper based gifts we’ve come across.

Your first year of marriage will no doubt be busy as you settle into married life together. As wonderful as you both think it is, even if you don’t want to admit it, you could probably do with sitting down and relaxing with a glass of wine, or perhaps even the bottle. It looks like a thoughtful gift for them, but really, it’s a present for both of you. Marriage is about sharing after all, isn’t it?

What better way to express your eternal adoration for the love of your life than with this delicate, yet fiery rose, gently tucked into its own little keepsake box. A tender and poetic gesture of unwavering loyalty, this unforgettable present could start a whole new love story.
Marimos are little fluffy balls of aquatic moss native to Japan (because of course they are) that you can keep as a pet. They can live a long time if properly cared for - like 100 years - and in rare cases grow in the shape of a heart. The rare first anniversary gift that can outlive a marriage.
