We envision a world where gifts are deeply personal & meaningful.
Growing up, I didn't get to see my parents celebrate their love. You see, expressing love doesn't always come naturally. My dad tried, but he struggled. One year, he scoured the mall for the perfect gift for my mom. He picked her out an embroidered jacket & pants set. She absolutely hated it. I was just a little girl, but my heart sunk when I saw the look of disappointment on both of their faces. His attempt at showing love, fell flat.
Little Anna, Age 5. Already a romantic.
I knew that when I grew up, I wanted to experience deep, bountiful love. This yearning turned me into a true romantic. I decided to build a life where love is celebrated and expressed.
I started Paper Anniversary in 2013 out of my bedroom. I was obsessed with helping people find the most romantic, thoughtful gift for their loved one. My inbox was flooded with emails from men, saying my gifts made their wife cry like a baby. I knew I was onto something priceless. And I found my calling: helping people express their love.
Building this business has been an uphill journey. I don't have a degree in Business, and many days I have no clue what I'm doing. But I have learned these things: 1) With a team, anything is possible. 2) When your motivation is Love, even the hardest path is worth it.
We are truly honored that people trust us to create gifts for their loved ones. Thank you for supporting us do what we love!
