It would seem that the wedding march has only died away, but the first year of life together has already flown by. This period, especially if the young are not so long ago in a relationship, and have not lived together before, becomes a real trial period and a test of strength. This is the time when feelings are bright and exciting, when a couple is just beginning to comprehend the basics of a joint household and life. The characters have not yet got used to it, and the husband and wife did not recognize all the dark and light sides of each other.
1 year of marriage together is called a print wedding. And there is a completely logical explanation for this symbolism. Chintz is a bright, but not very durable fabric. So the relationship of young people is full of colorful sensations, but still very fragile. This is a test of common life, which is much more difficult than a pleasant and light candy-bouquet period.
What kind of gifts are given for 1 year of the wedding? What can you give your beloved spouse? And what is appropriate to give to friends on this day? How can parents please their children? Let's think together.
What can you give your husband for your first wedding anniversary?
According to tradition, on that holiday, gifts made of chintz should be presented. You can donate a chintz shirt or underwear. Or you can do it easier and more versatile - wrap the gift itself in a chintz ribbon or wrap a box with a present with a piece of bright fabric. In the latter case, just think about what would be nice for your spouse. If your relationship began shortly before the stamp in your passport, and you are not yet sure that you are familiar with all the tastes of your husband, choose something neutral.
So, what to give your husband for the first wedding anniversary:
- Almost every man will be happy about the good instrument... If the spouse often makes something, or is faced with the need to use all sorts of screwdrivers and other useful pieces of iron, you can donate a good set of tools.
- A person who leads an active lifestyle can be given knife... The choice of models is huge - from compact sling cutters to functional multitool, with which you can tighten the screw, open the bottle, and cut the sausage. Or your man will be happy with a collectible katana or a replica of a medieval sword. And also everything that you may need on a sortie or on a hike - thermos, flashlight, burner, flask etc.
- If your husband is a stay-at-home, and nothing is so sweet to him as home comfort, present a nice soft blanket. Today there are interesting models - blankets with sleeves... On long winter evenings, they are comfortable to play on a console, watch a movie with coffee, and at the same time stay warm all the time.
- Many men remain children in their souls, and therefore you can look at helicopter, typewriter or Drone radio controlled.
- Watches... Despite the fact that today mobile phones have replaced many accessories for us, many men continue to wear watches. A good chronometer will definitely delight your spouse. But when choosing a model, be guided by the tastes of your husband, not your own.
- Decoration... Stylish men's bracelets, pendants, cufflinks, seals - whatever your heart desires. But only on condition that your husband wears such things at all. Also pay attention to which precious metal the spouse prefers - gold or silver.
- Gadgets... Men love toys, including modern ones. Maybe he wants a gaming keyboard or mouse for a long time, a new player, a USB fan for the summer heat, or something else.
We would like to note a separate point Certificates... Not only girls will be happy with such a present. It's just all about choosing the right store or service. Today, you can buy a certificate in almost any store - in a fishing, weapons, book, clothing store, sports equipment or equipment for outdoor activities. In general, everything that any man may need to be happy.
A certificate is an ideal choice if you want to surprise, know about your spouse's hobby in general, but are not sure if you can choose the right item.
But a comic, but cute gift to your beloved husband for a chintz wedding (1 year) can become ... medal... With individual engraving and original design. You can present it to your husband in a joking manner, and explain that for the difficult first year of life together, he was awarded the highest award. This medal may become one of your first family heirlooms and will certainly be remembered for a lifetime.
It is not so important to follow the symbolism and canons and "dance" around the chintz. After all, you want to please your loved one, and not just keep traditions. For a year of living together, you can give impressions and emotions. For example:
- Joint massage at the spa,
- A romantic evening in your favorite restaurant, in the place of your acquaintance, or even just on the roof of a skyscraper,
- Horseback riding or horse riding lesson,
- Quad bike ride
- Hot air balloon flight,
- Flight by plane or helicopter.
Etc. It all depends on your financial capabilities and the tastes of your spouse. Only you can know what he will be sincerely happy about - a massage or a parachute jump.
In the end, a year of married life can be celebrated simply with a romantic dinner at home, and then presented to your spouse ... yourself... In ribbons, lace and other nice elements. To make it more interesting for a man to unfold his present.
