This year is our first wedding anniversary. So much so, it needs to be a good one. Luckily it also coincides with May Bank Holiday so we will probably do something nice, plus our wedding venue was also an English Heritage site so we’ll be calling in there on the Sunday before for afternoon tea, a stroll in the grounds and a reminice with the wedding organiser Carol. But when it comes to gifts. What is suitable? In the same month I also have Andy’s birthday so I have double bubble in a period of a couple of weeks . . . I need some ideas.
Being a traditionalist, I’m thinking it will be nice to keep to the “list.” Year after year, I will therefore try to think of an item which relates to the following. . . first year being – Paper! Oh dear.
|9th||Watch||Pottery||Leather goods||Lapis Lazuli|
|75th||Gold or Diamond||Diamonds|
And, just in case there are any fellas reading, here’s a list of the flowers you should consider buying, although I personally think it would be nice to buy your wife flowers that were featured in her bouquet – just a little hint there for you Andy (Avalanche Roses, Daisies and Lily of the Valley if you’re wondering by Lily and May!)
|2nd||Lily of the valley|
|9th||Bird of paradise|
|50th||Yellow rose, violet|
