Custom-printed on high quality parchment paper and inscribed in elegant calligraphy, MyDayRegistry’s Certificate of Ownership makes for a memorable anniversary paper gift when given to your wife, your husband, or another happily married couple on their first anniversary.

But that’s not all! Upon registration, you’ll also receive access to a unique and secure online memory book. Personalize it yourself with photos, video and music, or leave it to your gift recipient to add their own special wedding and first-year anniversary memories.

How Works

MyDayRegistry is an online registry where you can dedicate a day in honor of the important events and people in your life. In addition to making the perfect first anniversary paper gift, MyDayRegistry gives you a creative way to celebrate and preserve many of life’s other precious memories.

Every day of dedication comes complete with a beautifully framed Certificate of Ownership as proof of your gift recipient’s ownership rights. Also included is an online profile that can be personalized with music, photos, video, and other details-perfect for sharing treasured wedding and first anniversary memories with family and friends.

With three affordable packages to choose from, you can register any available day by state, country, or worldwide. Every owner’s title and ownership rights are recorded in the official International Day Registry database-the only registry of its kind!

Claim Your Day . . . Before Someone Else Does!

With there being only 365 days in any given year and only ONE owner per day, there’s only ONE opportunity to get the day you want in the registry of your choice.

If you’re looking for a truly unique and meaningful gift idea for a first wedding anniversary, milestone birthday, or other occasion, there’s no better gift than MyDayRegistry. So don’t let that special day pass you by – make it your own today!

Is Your First Anniversary or Wedding Day Already Taken?

Don’t fret! If that all-important day appears to be taken, perhaps it’s available in a state or country registry other than your first choice. Also, don’t forget to check our Worldwide Registry – the only registry that allows you to claim yourself or your gift recipient the exclusive international owner of a day.

With a little creative thinking, ideas for an alternative day may also come to mind. For example, if you want to dedicate a day to your husband or wife as a first anniversary paper gift, but your wedding day is already taken, perhaps the day you met or the day you got engaged will be just as meaningful. Even the day you were born is an option. Just tell your sweetheart it’s the day you began your search for your soul mate!

A short first anniversary paper story

For most soldiers, it was just another long day in Iraq. But for Corporal Erikson, it was a day of special importance. It was one year from the day he married the only woman for him…his 1st wedding anniversary

The thought of being so far away from the love of his life on such an important day wasn’t easy. But Corporal Erikson was determined to make their 1st anniversary a memorable one, no matter how many miles stood between them.

Two months prior, Erikson began scouring the Internet for 1st anniversary gift ideas. While he wasn’t sure what he was looking for, he knew that the typical gifts like flowers and jewelry weren’t going to cut it. He wanted to give her something completely different, something that would express his love for her in a way she’d always remember.

When Erickson came across, he knew in an instant that dedicating a day in honor of his beautiful wife was the gift he’d been searching for. After typing in the date, Erikson was happy to find that the day he and his high school sweetheart committed their lives to each other was available. And in a click, he made that special day their own.

In the weeks thereafter, Erikson worked covertly with his mother-in-law through email, gathering as many wedding photos and video files she could send him. Erikson used these to personalize the online profile included with his MyDayRegistry gift, along with a few added touches, including a song and some personal notes of his own.

With everything in the online profile ready to go and the personalized Certificate of Ownership wrapped and ready to be hand-delivered by his wife’s mother on his behalf, there was just one thing left to do.

On the evening before their first anniversary, Corporal Erikson sent his wife an email. In it he wrote, “Meet me in my memories at 2:24 p.m. Just click the link below.”

The next morning, Erikson’s wife, Julie, found her husband’s email waiting for her in her inbox. After reading it, her heart filled with curiosity and anticipation. It was all she could do to wait until 2:24 p.m. But it meant the world to her to know that he had remembered the exact time they were pronounced husband and wife on their wedding day.

Finally, when the clock ticked over to 2:24, Julie clicked on the link in her husband’s email. Within seconds, Julie’s computer screen transformed into a gorgeous online wedding album, complete with photographs, videos, personal notes, and even the song she and her husband had danced to on their wedding day.

At that same moment, Julie’s cell phone began to ring. The second she heard the words, “Hello, beautiful,” come across the line, she knew it was her loving husband. And the second Corporal Erikson heard Julie sniffing back her tears, he knew he had succeeded in finding his deserving wife the perfect 1st anniversary gift.
