While you may still be coming off your honeymoon-high, it’s important to mark your first anniversary in a special way. The first wedding anniversary is traditionally celebrated with paper. A sentimental way to start off your anniversary gift-giving is to frame your wedding certificate and hang it in your home. Other paper options include books, journals and more romantic ideas like a message in a bottle. The modern first anniversary gift is a clock. Consider getting a statement standing clock for your hallway or a funkier one for the kitchen you can personalize with photos from your first year of marriage. You can also gift a watch that you engrave with a sweet sentiment for your better half.

The traditional fifth wedding anniversary gift is wood so a keepsake wooden plaque is a great gift option. You can engrave the plaque with a sweet message or keep it simple with your names and wedding date. You can also make the wood theme more practical by getting something your spouse would use like a wooden jewelry box or high end cutting board. If you’re handy, why not craft something yourself out of wood? Silverware is the modern gift for fifth anniversaries. A beautiful set of silver utensils, possibly engraved with your wedding date, would make an excellent modern gift.
