11th Wedding Anniversary

Its our 11th Wedding Anniversary Tuesday ( err.. that would be mrs. G and me ) and while I have gifts picked out I thought I would take a quick look to see what is "tradional"

oh great... tradional is steel and as the list below that I nicked from an interweb site suggest... I could get her new flatware, or a knife, or maybe a nice kitchen appliance.

If I don't make it to the burger and beer event following monday you guys know whats happened

Traditional:
Steel


* Stainless steel flatware
* Quality steel kitchen knife
* Steel vase or statue
* Stainless steel kitchen appliances
* Steel home decor

Re: 11th Wedding Anniversary

In order for your safety I'd suggest something more like these
http://www.etsy.com/shop/nervoussyst...ion_id=7252139

Quite a few of them are made from stainless steel.

There was one playing in Luzern two weeks ago. I think it was supposed to be volksmusic.

You could always go with a new twist on the classic: Mineral B.

Re: 11th Wedding Anniversary

Oh, c'mon, grynch, this one's easy! She would much rather have flowers, dinner, an original romantic poem penned by her man, or any other thoughtful gift, combined with the sentiment that YOU yourself are providing the "steel" in honor of the occasion!

Wait, you mean you didn't plan ahead and already have tickets to take her to the Caribbean for your anniversary?


Whatever you do, don't give her this (the knives are stainless steel) - she may get ideas.

Re: 11th Wedding Anniversary

11 years ?
You're practically newlyweds !

As for the steel, pop by a nice jewelry shop and ask for: or et acier
Some shops have a steel and gold. It's rather modern, and quite elegant.
