The Creation of Family Traditions: Anniversary Gifts.
In honor of Valentine's Day, thought we'd discuss the tradition of gift giving on your anniversary. I'd be safe to say that every girl loves chocolates and flowers, but why not shake things up a bit this year and get back to the basics. I found this wonderful list to share of the "traditional" anniversary gifts. I love this. I think this is simply a wonderful thing to follow - it makes you focus on things that are more meaningful and makes you be creative with such things as "paper" for the first year! Careful!
Another wonderful idea to consider creating as a tradition for your next anniversary, as a gift alternative, is one I'll share from April. Plan a trip to celebrate each anniversary. It doesn't have to be a week-long vaca to Europe (though nice ...) it could be a simple weekend road trip to some quaint B&B that you've been meaning to checkout by the beach.
