Traditionally, your first anniversary would be commemorated with the gift of stationery – no seriously, that’s what newlyweds bought for each other before text messages and email :-) It can often be a challenge to modernize the anniversary gift-giving conventions. For your first “paper” anniversary, might we suggest swapping the gold leaf, monogrammed stationery for a big, beautiful gold leaf framed vintage lithograph? Whether it’s a travel poster from your honeymoon destination, a poster for a cherished film, or a racy Bardot or Brando for your bedroom wall, vintage posters can fulfill the tradition with a modern twist. You only get one chance at a first anniversary, why not make it something a bit more memorable than stationery? And don’t forget, while you are building your future together, vintage posters make much better long-term investments than iThings and other consumer culture disposables!
