There's something to be said for sticking to traditions. With each year of a marriage, a time-honored practice is to gift a partner or couple something symbolic on their anniversary. First there's paper, then cotton, and so on. Some years may seem harder to shop for than others (really, what do you get for willow?), so we've curated some inspiration to honor your next three decades of wedded bliss.
One year in, the wedding is still fresh. Honor the first anniversary with something from the big event, like artwork made out of the lyrics from a first dance.
