This really depends on the preference of the couples that you are giving these anniversary gifts too. Often, stores that sell pens already do engraving for free as additional service to improve customer relations. Still, there are others demand payment. If you are not keen in paying for this kind of service, make sure then that the service is free before you purchase the items. The first thing that you have to think of is what kind of craft you can actually do. There are people who are good with woodworks while others are good in stitching and knitting. Are you a marvelous painter or can you compose a song or poem at the drop of the hat? By examining your talents, you will more be able to analyze what you can and cannot do. Having no money but wanting to give the best gift will still be meaningful if you focus on the main theme of making the couple happy with what you can give best rather than how expensive you can rip your pockets to give the luxurious gift. If you have special talents in crafts, you can personalize a gift out of creativity. Another great first anniversary idea is a photograph that you can frame. Choose a photo that best reminds you of your good times together and then have it framed. You can even have it enlarged in developing centers. Some also invests in expensive picture frames. Another idea along the same lines is creating a photo album that will tell the story of your year together. Romancing your 10th Anniversary Gift Wedding day, celebrating the culmination of vows and promises, two couples finally give it one last dot. The marriage itself is the new beginning just like the hourglass is inverted to count each anniversary year after year, in between passion and turbulence. Imagine what will life be in a decade of being together? In the third year, things can be get more exciting by getting something with leather. This can be a bag, a belt or shoes. The person can get a luggage set made of the same material with plane tickets inside to celebrate the anniversary away from other people. Those who are more modern choose to give an item that either has glass or crystal.
