Hello Gents (and possibly Ladies?)

I am looking for ideas for a somewhat traditional 1st Wedding Anniversary gift for my wife. I know that it is the 'Paper Anniversary' so I was thinking that some nice stationary might be nice alongside any other book and other things I might get her. Does anyone know a good place or have any advice? What are some good 1st anniversary gift ideas aside from that as well?

Do you guys have a house yet? If so, I recommend getting something nice for your home. For our first anniversary we went out and got a nice big bookshelf. Something that is nice and that we use, yet something that we probably wouldn't have gone out and purchased any old Saturday
For my 5 year anniversary I got my wife a really nice bottle of wine (wine has a paper label). This wine was to be saved and enjoyed on our 10th anniversary. We had our 10th anniversary in December but are celebrating it this weekend so we will be enjoying the wine. I wish I would have given her a bottle on our 1st anniversary for us to drink on our fifth. I will be giving my wife another bottle for us to drink on our 15th or 20th anniversary. It is to celebrate the now and to look forward the future together. Go to a nice store and ask them what wine will be good to save for 5 or more years.
Start small, you've gotta top it every year.
My wife tells me it's diamonds every year....it's not? :-)
We're moving out of state in a few months, so buying furniture or anything like that is probably on hold till we find a new place. But thanks for the idea Ryan, might use that idea next year.

Paul, I love the wine idea. Very cool notion.

Micah, yeah I know what you mean. We started dating back when I was 16 (I'm 25 now) and it certainly is tough to come up with better stuff every year. Sometimes I get a great idea, sometimes its a bit more of a flop haha.
put together a video compilation of photos of all the adventures you have been on together.
Clock is a First Anniversary gift also (modern). We received a nice chiming clock that has that really neat loud ticking sound. Great in the living room.
My girlfriend (at the time) got me a first edition New Arabian Nights as a graduation present. It's still one of my favorite gifts.
You know what you need? Another Hepburn poster. I don't think you have enough.

But on another note, I saw a message in an engraved beautiful bottle the other day. Seems like a very good idea, get a good heartfelt engraving commemorating your first year with a message for her in the future sealed inside.

Tomorrow is our first anniversary, and I wanted to get my wife something she would use and appreciate every day, so I found a guy on craigs list selling antique wood flooring that has been reclaimed from an old grain silo in Great falls. The floor is beautiful in the pictures and we are picking up a sample tomorrow, after taking in a nice drive. I know that she will love it and use it every day.

Without knowing ya'll I'd only be taking stabs in the dark at what might be a good idea for ya'all. 

 A house cleaning service? 

 Take her some place nice for an extended weekend, like a cabin in the woods kinda deal. 

 A gift certificate to some place she would appreciate.
