Our Paper Anniversary Gifts

Well we already know what The Husband got me for our anniversary (click here), but part of our gift to each other was the gift of tickets... i.e., tickets to Las Vegas, where we spent our Mini-Moon one year ago.

According to the chart, i hit a few of the suggestions listed below.. Yay, me for being traditional with a modern kick :)

Alternate Modern:
  • Artwork
  • Love letters and poetry
  • Favorite book
  • Memory album
  • Stationary with new married name
  • Home decor
  • Gift certificates
  • Cigars
  • Book of floor plans (if building a house soon)
  • Life insurance
  • Geneology
  • Tickets to a play, concert, or sporting event
  • Wood sculpture
  • Kitchen appliances
  • Tupperwear
  • Household appliances
  • Household items
  • DVD or CD
  • Sunglasses
  • Sports gifts
  • Yoga mat
  • Luggage accessories
  • Adult gifts
  • Artisan clock
  • Personalized clock
  • Watches
  • Feature-rich alarm

The gift of tickets was our biggest gift to one another, but another gift that I gave (allowed) The Husband to have was the gift of paper... the slang term - MONIES! but in the spirit of being creative, I actually got him a newly needed Wallet

And inside the wallet, I gave the paper gift of a picture of the two of us on our wedding day

And attached to this image, is a index card with our handwritten vows... ending with "renewed on March 6, 2011". And while I hate my penmanship, i knew it would mean more in my own hand.

"I, AmyJean, take you Larry to be my husband, my partner in life, my one true love. I will cherish our friendship and love you today, tomorrow, and forever. I will trust you and honor you. I will laugh with you and cry with you. I will love you faithfully through the best and the worst, through the difficult and the easy. Whatever may come I will always be there. As I have given you my hand to hold, so I give you my life to keep. So help me God"

So whaddya think? Cute ideas? it's paper, its monies, its pictures, its kinda poetry, its a love letter, its our Paper Anniversary!
