Presents for a Paper Anniversary.

My 1st wedding anniversary is coming up. It is also known as the paper anniversary and traditionally the couple would exchange presents, paper related. I have officially 1 month more to figure what to get and to make sure it gets here in time for the special day. Meanwhile we are also deciding what sort of celebration would befitting of the occasion. 

Thought I would share with you some plausible options for the paper anniversary. 

Personalised Stationery from Crane's.
Or the most wonderful Smythson of Bond St. If it is good enough for Royalty, it is good enough for my Dearest.

A Passport Holder. This one is from Hermes. Love the colour and the details.

An Organiser. This is a Aligator leather organiser from Hermes as well.

A Painting. This is "A Bridge over Seine" by Marc Chagall. Love the surrealism in his work.

A First Edition of his favourite book. This is one of my favourites. Alice in Wonderland By Lewis Carroll and illustrated by Arthur Rackham. The book was gilted, had tissue guarded full page colour plates and with decorated initials. Splendid!

Look at the Gorgeous Illustrations.
