From me to you -- one year on
THE traditional first wedding anniversary gift is paper. You can give your beloved tickets for a concert or the theatre, or for a trip abroad.
Alternatively you can gift money, an invitation to join you on a spa weekend, or a copy of a favourite book. Celebrity couples who might be scratching their heads wondering what to buy in the run-up to their first wedding anniversary include Prince William and Kate Middleton (left) who wed last April.
They are an exceptional couple of course, and Wills can always pop into the tiara room in Buckingham Palace and pick out a new sparkling headpiece for Kate.
Supermodel Kate Moss and rocker Jamie Hince will celebrate their first anniversary in July, and many commentators have felt that this year has been tough for Kate, as she has adjusted to being a wife.
Jamie will probably do best to get tickets to take holiday-lover Kate for a fortnight of frolicking in the sun.
Bond star Daniel Craig shocked fans by secretly wedding actress Rachel Weisz last June. The couple married in an intimate four-person ceremony in New York, so perhaps the perfect gift would be the novel The Secret Wedding, by Jo Beverley.
Another couple who'll similarly be looking for the perfect first anniversary gift is actress Reese Witherspoon who last March married her agent Jim Toth in a traditional ceremony at Witherspoon's California ranch. Maybe he could present Witherspoon with a good film script.
While for Canadian crooner Michael Buble, who wed the Argentine actress Luisana Loreley Lopilato in a ceremony in Argentina last March, how about he pen her a new love song -- on a piece of paper of course, and not his laptop.
As for Brian Ormond and Pippa O'Connor (above), who married last July, there's always the piece of paper every Dublin gal wants -- a voucher from Brown Thomas or Harvey Nicks!
