I've been inspired.
Those who follow me on Twitter already know May 1st was the second anniversary of my first date with Sweet. (And those who don't follow me...why don't you follow me?) It was a total gift fail on both our parts. She bought me chocolates, but then I guess I did something to piss her off, so she ate them all herself. LOL. So I went out and bought her a cinnamon bun, and I ate that myself as payback.
Yeah, we are sooooooooo mature! hahaha...
Anyway, having anniversaries on my mind got me thinking about traditional anniversary gifts by year. Yeah, sure, those gifts were traditionally intended for wedding anniversaries, but why not celebrate a first date, first kiss, first fuck, or anything else momentous? Sweet and I celebrate our first date as our annual anniversary, and that's fine by us. We don't need to be married to celebrate our life together.
And thus begins a new feature here at Donuts and Desires: an erotic spin on traditional anniversary gifts! For those who haven't heard, there are traditional gifts for every anniversary.
The Paper Year
The traditional gift for a first anniversary is paper.
How can we spin this into an erotic gift? There are oh-so-many ways!
What a great place to start! Pick up some gorgeous stationary and get that pen in gear. If you read my work, your head is likely full of naughtiness to begin with. Let it all out!
At the one-year mark, write your sweety the kind of note that will move them. For a romantic, write a love letter. For a self-diagnosed nymph, write something hot and porny!
To commemorate the occasion of our first night together, Sweet and I wrote each other poetry. If you're really ambitious, try that!
Well, of course I'm going to recommend buying a book on your paper anniversary! What kind of an author would I be if I didn't? There are so many theme anthologies out there. If you browse together, it gives you a chance to discuss fantasies and turn-ons as a couple.
Of course, I'm going to get in a plug for my bisexual novella Ondine, which is available from Amazon, but by all means buy a book you can enjoy as a couple. If you're daring, read to each other. If you're beyond daring, act out your favourite sex scene!
Those are my ideas for the paper anniversary. What are yours? Have you received any great paper gifts over the years? Do tell! We welcome new ideas! And be sure to come back next week for an erotic twist on the traditional second anniversary gift: cotton!
