How often do you truly take the time to reflect on the previous year? Wedding anniversaries offer a special occasion to reflect on your year of love - all the trial, tribulations and triumphs you've overcome with your significant other. It's a day to celebrate when you proclaimed your love and committed yourself to your partner. And if you're anything like me I wish I could relive that day over and over again. 

Luckily my husband always does a great job of making our anniversary a special day, so I get to relive the memories at least once a year. We normally do dinner and gifts and we spend time talking about our family and friends that celebrated with us when I wore my white dress. Our wedding day was one of the most special days of my life and I remember it with very fond memories. It seems like almost yesterday that I walked down the aisle. Which is why it's crazy to me that we're about to celebrate our three-year wedding anniversary at the end of the month. So in honor of anniversaries I've put together a gift guide of traditional anniversary gifts.

First Wedding Anniversary

The traditional first wedding anniversary gift is paper. If you're looking for some great first year wedding anniversary gifts you could always get:
  • Wedding pictures or a wedding album
  • Personalized stationary
  • A coffee table travel book and tickets to visit that destination
  • Tickets for a date night (movies, tickets to the zoo, broadway, a sporting event...)

Second Year Wedding Anniversary

The traditional second wedding anniversary gift is cotton. Some second year wedding anniversary gift include:
  • Sheets - monogrammed or not who doesn't love to cuddle up in new sheets?
  • A Stay at the Cotton Mansion Bed & Breakfast in Minnesota. This place looks incredible and so romantic.
  • Nightwear, like cotton pajamas, a robe...

Third Anniversary - Gift Ideas

The traditional third wedding anniversary gift is leather. Who doesn't love leather? Some great third-anniversary gift ideas include:
  • Furniture - A beautiful leather chair or love seat could be cherished for years
  • Shoes
  • A handbag
  • Travel accessories, with the added bonus of travel tickets inside of course
For all of you celebrating an anniversary congratulations on a year of love. 

Do you have any great ideas for the fourth year wedding anniversary, which is fruit and flowers - I need to start shopping now!

Be Blessed,
