Spending 365 days in a relationship is no small feat. A one-year anniversary is a big milestone, and it should be treated as such. Whether you go out on the town or spend the night in together, there's no wrong way for you and your SO to celebrate. But if you two decide to exchange gifts, it can be tough to figure out a unique way to say, "Thanks for spending these past 12 months fighting over where to get takeout with me." No matter your budget, I've rounded up some sweet first anniversary gift ideas your partner is sure to appreciate.
Presents don't always have to be "things." You can always give your partner a fun experience for your first anniversary, or you can get crafty with a DIY creation. You can even celebrate with an anniversary present that barely costs you anything. Of course, store-bought gifts can be just as thoughtful as gifts from the heart. If you're open to potentially spending money on a tangible item, why not give your partner something they'd never expect? These one-year anniversary present ideas aren't just totally original — they're all under $100, so you can say "I love you" without breaking the bank.
