One Year Anniversary Gift Ideas You Can't Miss

By Annie Symmonds

Making through your first year of marriage is an exciting, whirlwind time, and you'll want to find the best anniversary gift ideas in Australia to commemorate such an important milestone! Whether you’re looking for anniversary gift ideas for him, gifts for her or for unique anniversary gift ideas for couples to enjoy together, one thing is certain: you know you want to give them something special.

Finding the right wedding anniversary gifts needs to be as wonderful as the wedding itself (and after just a year, it probably doesn't feel like very long ago). Don’t surprise your loved ones with a new toaster or something for the house – think outside the box in order to find something that’s slightly more special than a practical object. Instead, organise fun gift experiences and help the happy couple to create priceless, long-lasting memories together. The first year of marriage is the year all couples remember the most, so let’s help you find a special gift experience!

As more and more people become conscious of their consumption habits, unique gift experiences are on the rise. Who wouldn’t prefer spending their time trying new experiences with loved ones instead of buying more? When you try new arts, craft and food experiences across Australia, it can transform your lifestyle and create room for improved health and wellness, providing you with long-lasting happiness. Many people aren’t using their creative sides as much as they’d like, but art, craft and food can really help you to become more in tune with yourself and much happier in the long run.

Getting started with art classes in Australia can feel overwhelming, which is why gift experiences are the perfect way to have a go. Our beginner art classes are designed in a way that will make everyone feel 100 per cent comfortable, so you won’t need to worry about any egos being present. With local makers, artists and foodies to guide the classes, you’ll be given the knowledge and tools you need to be able to continue on with the skills you’ve learnt, which could result in a new hobby being formed. Trying new things is a great way to take time out of life’s daily stresses and do more things you really love.

Whether it's pottery classes in Sydney or cooking classes in Brisbane, these one-year anniversary gift ideas are a great way to show the man, woman or favourite couple in your life how much you care! With that in mind, let’s help you find the perfect first year wedding anniversary gift ideas for men, women and couples so you’ll have it all covered when the day rolls around.
