Recently my husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary. I've been meaning to write about that, but I am so behind in just about everything right now. :-)
On our anniversary my wonderful husband brought a box into the room. He said he has not done a good job of giving me the traditional gifts on our anniversary, and so this day he wanted to make up for it.
On the first anniversary, the traditional gift is paper. He opened the box and handed me that day's newspaper.
The second anniversary's gift is cotton. My husband reached into the box and pulled out a cotton ball.
Leather is the traditional gift for the 3rd anniversary. He gave me a leather shoelace.
The fourth anniversary has a choice between fruit and flowers. My husband handed me a bag of dried apricots. I love dried apricots! :-)
Anniversary number 5 is wood, so my husband gave me a wooden knob, or drawer pull.
The sixth anniversary also has a choice, between candy and iron... my husband knows me well and knows I wouldn't even know what to do with an iron, so he gave me a snicker's bar. *lol* :-)
Number 7 is a choice between wool and copper, so my husband gave me a penny.
Since bronze and pottery are the choice for the 8th anniversary, my husband gave me a bronze drawer pull.
Anniversary number nine has a choice between pottery, willow and china, so he gave me a little clay flower pot.
And for the 10th anniversary, the traditional gift is tin or aluminum. My husband handed me a sheet of aluminum foil. :-)
I loved my husband's creativity as he put this gift together! Here's a picture of all my anniversary gifts.
