Since the first anniversary is looked at as one of the hardest years of marriage, plan an anniversary surprise for your husband that makes it all worth it. Take him on a trip, a night on the town, to watch his favorite athlete or just purchase humorous gifts that you know he will enjoy, just as much as he enjoyed being committed to you for the past year.
If your husband is a sports fanatic, surprise him with an outing to see his favorite athlete or favorite team. If there are no sporting events going on around the date of your anniversary, order him personalized sports memorabilia, with an invitation to attend a game in the future. For instance, purchase a blanket, throw, glove or basketball, then wrap the tickets for the future game inside the gift.
Cruise or Trip
Who says you’re only allowed to celebrate your honeymoon once? As a first-year wedding anniversary idea, take him on a romantic cruise or trip and consider the trip your second honeymoon. There are various cruise lines and travel agencies that can help you plan the perfect anniversary getaway for a few days, weeks or more. He will not only enjoy the cruise ship activities, but the relaxation and alone time with the one he loves, you.
Humourous Anniversary Gift
Men enjoy a good laugh, so give him just that on your first anniversary. The night before your anniversary, make sure he is asleep and put your practical joke into action. Switch the toilet paper roll in your bathroom, or the bathroom that he frequents in the morning with anniversary toilet paper. Just Paper Roses has toilet paper available with “Happy 1st Paper Anniversary” printed on it. The toilet paper is sold by the roll; the more rolls you purchase, the more of a discount you will receive.
