Why is it called a paper anniversary? Some theories are because the first year is the most fragile year; or that newlyweds typically in their first year are focused on making ends meet thus, to find a gift of something as simple as paper to celebrate. I'm not really sure why, but I do know that most sites reinforce that the first year anniversary is as special as the 50th, but probably not as lavish of a celebration.
The types of paper gifts you can give can include photos, love letters, the gift of actual paper - stationary, posters & prints, books, tickets and much more.
Modern gifts for the 1st year anniversary is the gift of a clock.
