Anniversary Gift Tips

I've noticed recently that there's a lot of people who are married, just got married or like to pretend. They call it tradition yet they don't follow the traditional process. So I thought I would post about that today.

For those of you that don't know each year you celebrate your anniversary (those of you that are at least legally married) you have to give a specific gift for that year. My parents did so all the way up until my father death. But also given the same token they were rare breed lol.

So there are themed gifts as well as flowered gifts. All of which is varies by country and recognition of course. I will post the list for both that recognizes the U.S. and U.K. traditions. I found this list on Wikipedia and I will go far as to say that this is correct. Why?? Because I know what's going on that's why lol. To see the history to the list and its entirety click here.
