Have you wondered why paper is the first wedding anniversary gift? This video will give a quick explanation of why paper is the 1st wedding anniversary gift and give you an idea on a gift that will last a lifetime!
Hi! Jess here of Jessica Wilkeson Design Studio. Where we design and hand craft custom anniversary and travel related gifts.
Today, I’m going to discuss why paper is the traditional first year anniversary gift and give you a few ideas on how you can celebrate your marriage together.
First, and maybe most obvious, is that paper represents a blank page. It’s the beginning of all great ideas, however it needs to be added to, written on, held. Maybe even folded and creased a bit to give it some interest and make it unique.
In the case of your marriage, the paper represents your future being written together. Where you want to go, how you want to build a life together and more.
Did you know? Mike actually wrote me a love letter for our first anniversary and had no clue that it represented paper as a traditional gift. For the full story, watch the video above!
If you’re like me, you don’t want to display your personal letters for all to see. This is where custom art prints make great first year wedding gifts. One of my favorite is our personalized push pin world travel map. Not only are you giving a gift of paper, but you are giving a gift of a lifetime of planning, adventure and dreaming together. You can spend your lives using this one piece of paper and it will forever represent where you began and where you have gone and grown together. It really represents a strong start to your marriage.
