Jar of Romantic Memories
In truth, we’ve all got a jar of romantic memories in our brains, though they’re not always the most reliable (just ask anyone who’s ever forgotten an anniversary). So it’s always better to make sure you’ve got the hard copy. And in a digital world, real life gifts like this can feel even more special and thoughtful. There’s no limit to what you can scribble down on your memory tickets, so when the jar fills up and you go digging through this thing, expect a few surprises.
You have a book of wedding pictures, but it’s that first year of marital bliss that is really worth remembering. Collect all your favorites and have them printed and bound in a lovely little book. So much more fun than looking at stressed out and drunk pictures of yourself, right?
It’s easy to see why old romantic gestures are getting less and less common now in the digital age of social media, it’s quicker to text than it is to phone and more convenient to email than to write. We think that makes a love letter all the more special. We bet there’s not an emoji to capture how delighted they’ll be to receive such a loving and thoughtful gift.
Give the gift of beautiful views, bucket-list achievements, and especially if they’re afraid of heights, hours of entertainment for you. It veers away from cruel since it’s completely safe, but you’ll definitely get your money’s worth watching them rotate between admiring the splendor and clutching the basket while praying in four languages. Especially since they only speak one.
The first year of your marriage may have been an absolute dream and you can rest assured that all the years to come will be too as long as you follow the golden rule to never go to sleep on an argument. Luckily, if times are tough (or if someone forgot to put the toilet seat down, gentlemen?), these pillowcases will serve to remind you to tell each other, ‘I love you’.
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?
Being in love can make you feel like you’re floating amongst the clouds, on top of the world. What better way to celebrate that feeling than with a hot air balloon ride to watch the sunrise or the sunset together, floating amongst the clouds, on top of the world, quite literally. The perfect end to a perfect first year and a magical beginning to many more to come.
The heart-shaped heart is kinda played out, don’t you think? An anatomically correct heart, though, that’s cool. And one made of rose gold, hung on a necklace is actually sweetly romantic. Any biologically inclined bride will treasure this lovely gift.
We have been informed that there couples in existence out there who met each other in beautiful, romantic places and not in the dingy back hallway of the local dive bar while waiting to pee. This first anniversary gift would be perfect for them.
