About Us

We know that finding the perfect gift can be REALLY stressful.

We're here to save the day!


We envision a world where gifts are deeply personal & meaningful.


A True Calling

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.
