Guest Post: Megan at Fried Green Pickles

If you like pickles, the title of this girl's blog will make your mouth water! Megan is a super sweet blog friend who has definitely provided me with advice and encouragement through the wedding planning process. I watched her plan and then have her wedding a little over a year ago, so it was super fun that she agreed to guest post for me while I'm off celebrating my new nuptials!

Hi everyone! I'm Megan from the blog Fried Green Pickles, where I just talk about the normal day-to-day things that happen in our newlywed life. You'll see lots of pics of our dog, Brady, yummy recipes, and random things I'm loving each week! I hope you'll stop by for a visit! 

Since my husband and I just celebrated our one year anniversary on March 30th, and Jenn just tied the knot (woohoo!!), I thought putting a list together of one year anniversary gift ideas would be helpful to Jenn, and any of you other newlyweds!
One Year Anniversary Gift Ideas

Framed First Dance Lyrics - This could also be your vows. Hang them in your bedroom so that you can read them and think about that special day, every day!

Photo Book from your First Year of Marriage - This is actually one that I did for my husband, Cameron. I went through all of my pictures on my phone, Facebook, and Instagram, and picked out significant and even non-significant things that we did together throughout our first year of marriage! How fun will it be to look back at it 10, 20, 50 years from now?? I think this may be a yearly tradition. 

Concert Tickets - This is a pretty common paper gift, but if a good concert is coming to town, it's a great one! I bought Cameron (and I) tickets to see Ray Lamontagne in July! Can't wait! 

Framed Photo from His Favorite Place - For my husband, it would be a picture of the Stono River here in Charleston. During the summer, we are on the boat every weekend, and even got married overlooking the Stono River! It's a special place for both of us. 

Masculine Stationery - I know guys don't get giddy over stationery like us girls do, but it's good for them to have. Perfect for sending a hand written note after that job interview. Just a simple navy blue or black monogram (block, no script for guys) on some thick white paper will do the trick! 

I hope this helped anyone out there that was having a hard time coming up with the perfect gift for your man!
Jenn, I hope you are having an amazing time on your honeymoon with your HUSBAND!
