Traditional Wedding Anniversary Gifts - what to do

In case you all didn't know it, we also run Isabel's Paper Boutique. Most of our business is not local. We do a lot of custom work - it's my favorite part of the business. So we get a call yesterday, and I was touched by the guy on the other line. The traditional gift for the first anniversary is Paper. He wanted to get the vows he wrote calligraphed and framed. How sweet! I can't stand all this sugar.

Anyway - it got me to thinking...What are the traditional gifts for anniversaries. I can't say I have thought about it for many years - not even for my own. So, in honor of Reagan, who is giving a great gift for his wife, here it is:

  1. Paper
  2. Cotton
  3. Leather
  4. Fruit / Flowers
  5. Wood
  6. Candy / Iron
  7. Wool / Copper
  8. Bronze / Pottery
  9. Pottery / Willow
  10. Tin / Aluminum
  11. Steel
  12. Silk / Linen
  13. Lace
  14. Ivory
  15. Crystal

20. China

25. Silver

Some of these are interesting - Wool / Copper? I'll have to work on that one.
