Inside: 1 year anniversary gifts for teens to celebrate your beau.
Young love is a beautiful thing. It’s the first experience that we have with romance, and it opens a door to a whole other part of ourselves we didn’t know was there. When you’re a teenage, time moves differently then when you’re an adult. It’s much slower. You also are going through so many changes, mentally and physically.
This make getting to the one year mark all the more exciting because the odds were stacked against your favor. So this is a time to celebrate!
When it comes to anniversary gifts, it can be pretty confusing. Especially for those of you who have never given an anniversary present before. Your instincts may be to shower them with their favorite things. The socks they’ve wanted for a while, a poster of their favorite artist. But it’s important to keep in mind that the point of this celebration is the relationship that the two of you have created together.
It isn’t about the individual, but the collective. Otherwise your anniversary turns into their birthday. It’s about the two of you TOGETHER. So the presents should be an example of that. Though it may seem cheesy, it is a wonderful way to make the relationship feel as special as it is.
This can be done by choosing a gift that reflects your time with your partner. Like getting your favorite photo of you two printed and framed, or starting a scrapbook.
These kinds of gifts will set the groundwork for your relationship going forward.

When creating a close relationship with someone, you have to accept the good, the bad, and the hilarious. It’s hard to imagine when you aren’t in a close relationship, but the amount of yourself that you end up sharing with the other person is unfathomable.
