The first anniversary is a special time in a new couple’s life. Your diamond engagement ring and wedding bands still have a new sparkle and shine, and your perfect wedding is still fresh in your mind – you’ve had a year to learn about each other and what marriage is all about.
What is the perfect gift for celebrating one year of marriage?
Each anniversary reflects unique gifts in three categories: gemstones, traditional and modern. Here are a few first anniversary gift ideas for your sweetheart.
Timeless and pure, pearls are the first anniversary gemstone. Colors and styles of this elegant gemstone are as varied as the women who wear them! This unique Chocolate Pearl Ring is a great choice for a woman with modern taste, while our Pearl and Diamond necklace is perfect for a woman who loves a classic with a twist look.

The traditional first anniversary gift is paper, but your gift doesn’t have to be dull – lots of great things are made from paper! Do you love live theater? Season tickets to your favorite playhouse are a great option. Have you been bitten by the travel bug? Print reservations, plane boarding passes or brochures for a romantic getaway and wrap them up. Other personalized gifts are a framed photo of you and your spouse, custom made stationary or a subscription to a favorite magazine or newspaper.
Clocks are the modern choice for a first anniversary gift. From an inexpensive wall clock to a jewel covered wristwatch, the choices are endless. Consider personalizing your gift – engraving a desk clock with your names, wedding date or quotes from a favorite song, or choosing a wristwatch with your spouse’s favorite sports team on the face.
Regardless of if you choose a gemstone, traditional or modern style, your gift should reflect your spouse’s personality – and your love for one another.
