My husband and I have been together for almost 13 years, married for now 4 years. They say the traditional gift for the 4th wedding anniversary is fruit or flowers while the modern gift is a/an applicance(s).
Flowers die. Well, at least mine do. And I can’t imagine a more backhanded way to tell someone what you think of them than to buy them a Dirt Devil vacuum, so I guess the fruit will just have to do.
And I don’t mean that I will be expecting fruit. No, no, ladies. As with every year, I will be giving the gift.
I have said this to my male friends, and they go into shock. Apparently most women only anticipate receiving gifts on such events rather than gifting one to their man, too.
This is unacceptable as it was a shared day when you and your partner joined in holy matrimony. Why shouldn’t both parties be on the receiving end in celebration of your union?
For my and my husband’s wedding anniversary, chocolate covered strawberries will be given to him in celebration of our love. How many will remain in the box before I give it to him as a gift is a different post entirely. One strawberry out of eight would still count, right? Mmm, chocolate covered strawberries.
