You might not have guessed it but I like it the traditional way

When I was a little girl I always dreamed of having a big wedding. I wanted the whole traditional ceremony and walk down the aisle but sadly my wedding didn’t turn out like that. One thing I did make sure to keep tradition were the anniversary gifts by year. Everyone knows that that the first year  anniversary gift is paper and hubby thought he would be funny by giving me a bag full of toilet paper. If the toilet paper looked anything like this   I would not have minded in the least bit but nope it was ordinary toilet paper. He noticed my disappointment  right away and told me to cheer up as that wasnt my real gift. What was my real gift was he had our names and their meanings  engraved into some sort of rice paper and put into a frame. He also got me a teddy bear with his teeshirt engraved with out wedding date and the words” Happy first Anniversary” kind of like this teddy bear

He put so much thought into my gift that I felt bad giving him my gift (which were some  tickets to his favorite football team games) which I had wrapped up in paper,since his tickets were made out of paper I thought they went with the theme. He of course loved the tickets but I felt Iike I  didnt put as much  effort into choosing his gift as he had with mine.

Since that first year I make sure that our wedding anniversary gifts by year are made with much thought and I cant wait til we get to our 25th wedding anniversary and see what kind of silver goodies he gets me. I might not have had the traditional wedding I wanted but doing our traditional wedding anniversary gifts to me has been just as special and something I look foward to each year. Do you know which traditional anniversary gifts you are supposed to get each year? If you like things the traditional way you should learn them so when the time comes you will be prepared and know what gift to get.
