Awesome anniversary gifts by year (the first 10 years)

As a newlywed (I just got married in October), I’m excited to have “official” anniversaries to share with my husband. We’ve always enjoyed celebrating special days in our relationship, but now it’s the real deal!

I was aware that there were different anniversary gifts by year because my parents (who’ve been married for 45) always have fun with this. But, as far as I knew, the first year was a paper gift, and then… no clue.

Like the naturally inquisitive person that I am, I went to find the answers—and came across some great inspiration, too. If you’re like me, and you’re wondering what’s on deck, here are the first 10 years (we’ll cover more years in future posts)—complete with a few fun, personalized gift ideas.

Hope you have a good time creatively celebrating your love!
