My first wedding anniversary is coming up next month and I have no idea what to get the wife. I know the 1st year is meant to be paper but I have no idea what to get.

I have thought about concert or theatre tickets but the people she wants to see aren't till a while next year and she is pregnant and due to give birth in April so taking a heavily pregnant woman to see the wanted in March is probably not a good idea.

Any ideas? What did everyone else get their husbands/wives for their 1st anniversary?

Isn't cotton year 1?

Matilda is supposed to be a good show and something we've both been wanting to see.

What about taking her out for a nice Saturday (Christmas markets, meal etc?) and buy a simple gift.

To be honest we don't do very much for our anniversaries, and definitely don't stick to Paper, Cotton, Silk etc.

Well that's what I was thinking to just ignore the traditional and just get something different. My wife loves the film Matilda I might actually look into that.

1st anniversary - I bought her a coffee in Dubrovnik airport.
2nd anniversary - posh meal in Madrid
3rd anniversary - intended to have a posh meal in Madrid but it was ****ing ****
4th anniversary - kids had arrived by this time, so a posh meal locally
5th anniversary - weekend trip to Barcelona
6th anniversary - I was on a stag do In Leeds (well, I was best man after all). I believe she went to our nephew's birthday party.

A mixed bag there. Must do better next year than this!
