Congratulations on your first year of marriage!
Your first year of marriage, your story as a couple and all your memories deserve to be celebrated. What is the perfect gift to show your partner just how much you love them on your paper anniversary? We have some ideas to inspire you.
Why give a paper gift?
The first year of marriage is celebrated with a paper gift. It is a gift that is tied up with lots of symbolism. A paper gift is a reminder that you are at the start of your story. A hundred sheets of paper can transform into a beautiful story just as a hundred years of marriage is a story of love. It is also symbolic of the strength of a marriage, as the paper is held together by the strong connections of the individual threads.
Idea 1: Transform The Story of Your Relationship Into A My Icon Story
Remember the first time you met your partner, where was it? University or on holiday? Through friends or family? Where did you first go on holiday together? Somewhere sunny or cold? What was something you loved to do together? Where did they propose? ……………………….Did you smile?
Our memories with our loved ones are often something that brings joy and happiness. Why not remind your partner of those memories every day with a My Icon Story. Capture the story of how you fell in love and symbolise it through icons.
We absolutely love this photo below of Dom giving his wife Charlotte a My Icon Story for their Paper Anniversary. Dom created our largest print, the Wallhogger, featuring 12 icons to represent their South Africa to Mauritius honeymoon adventure.

Idea 3: Turn Your Special Day Into A Special Piece Of Art
You spend months planning and making decisions for it to turn into a magical day that you’ll never forget. With all of our wedding and relationship themed icons, you can turn your special day into a unique piece of art. Hang it up on a wall in your home as a reminder of that day you and your partner celebrated your love with all of your family and friends. Don’t forget we also offer a FREE icon request service so if you’d like an icon of your wedding venue, church, shoe, special bottle or anything else, just get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll design your bespoke icons for you.
Below is an example of an icon we were asked to design for a wonderful couple celebrating their wedding anniversary. They wanted an icon of their first dance embrace. Nothing it too much of a challenge for us! We take great care in making sure our customers not only get a bespoke piece of art but that the service they receive from us is equally as special and personal. What bespoke icons would you like of your special day?
Idea 4: Use An Icon To Reveal A Surprise
A paper gift is a perfect way to remember old memories but it can also be an exciting way to reveal new memories to come. Why not reveal a surprise trip to Paris through the icon of the Eiffel Tower? Or maybe you have a new addition to the family and an icon of some little feet is the perfect way to surprise your partner.
Using My Icon Story you can create a paper anniversary gift that is personalised and will make your partner smile. Isn’t that the entire reasons we remember these special moments? They bring us happiness and joy, one of these gifts will certainly do this. If you need some more inspiration on creating your icon story then check out this blog.
Give your partner a special gift this year and share it with us on Instagram with #ouriconicanniversary.
We can’t wait to see what you design.
