Give your girlfriend a gift that chronicles memories of the first year.Put together a photo album of the moments you have shared. You could also create an online slideshow, set to music, or have a calendar made for the next year.One idea is to give her a book or set of books from her favorite authors.
Choose romantic accommodations, such as a cozy winter cabin, a deluxe suite at a swanky city hotel or a secluded villa at a luxury tropical hotel.Give her a romantic item symbolizing one year together with a note attached.For example, you could give her a single rose with a note attached that says, "one rose for the love that has blossomed between us this year." Other items could include a plush heart, a heart charm necklace, a heart-shaped balloon and a hand-written love letter made into a paper origami swan or rose. This is ideal if you haven't taken a big trip together yet.Another idea is to create a scrapbook with mementos from events of your first year together -- movie ticket stubs, a takeout menu or the first card you gave her.Paper is the traditional first year anniversary gift for married couples, but you could give your girlfriend a paper gift for your first year of dating, too.
Many hotels offer romance packages to enhance your trip.
