The traditional gift material for a first wedding anniversary is paper, which offers many gift options, from a framed photograph to concert tickets. For Jewish couples, the traditional first anniversary gift is a type of marriage contract called a ketubah.
Card games or board games are good gift options for first anniversaries, as well as books. Stationary is also a simple, yet lovely gift, especially when it is personalized. Paintings or posters are fitting gifts for couples who just moved into a new home that needs decor. Gift certificates to a favorite restaurant or a spa day are thoughtful options for spouses to give to each other.
