Traditional Anniversary Gifts

I was talking to my husband the other day about “traditional wedding gifts” and he’d never really heard of such thing… 

 OMG really?

That got me to wondering who out there didn’t know about them so I thought I would share today 🙂

I was reading a blog (I have followed since before I got married) but right now I can’t share which one because hubby reads my blog and it’d give it away what his anniversary present might be but you know who you are 🙂  Thanks for the tip off! (after September I’ll reveal) 

I’m just going to throw out a few ideas… Just remember, think outside the box!

Ok now that I’ve bored you… lay back down and go to sleep 😉

  1. Hahah! My hubby was clueless about traditional gifts as well. Alright but I'm a little disappointed, we are celebrating our 6th anniversary next month – iron or candy? I need neither. Can you swap that with a diamond and then I can direct my hubby to your blog? Please?? HA!
    Oh and PS I tagged you today on my blog!
    Happy Humpity Day!

  2. We haven't followed thia at all ,I got a Canadian diamond solitare last year (9 yrs) and this year , we bought a horse trailer (aluminum and steel ) all messe dup but Its oK

  3. I just asked my husband and he had no idea either. Haha. I knew that they existed, but I honestly only knew what year one was. I'm so glad that you shared these!

  4. We didn't do this for our first anniversary because we weren't together for it, but I'm already thinking about what to do for the second! Cotton?? NO clue!
