Title: Anniversary Gifts
Post by: Bob K on February 13, 2013, 09:00:56 pm
I am looking for a definitive list of Anniversary years gifts, to set up a scathingly brilliant suggestion.
 
ie:  1st year Paper, 2nd year Cotton, 3rd Leather etc.  50th is Gold.
What I need is independent proof that a 47th Anniversary (which is today!) is in fact 'Model Boat'.
We should give each other model boats  O0
 
Can anyone help here ?

Well, the only list I found that actually has 47 (the others only do every 5th or 10th at that lofty level) says 'Books'. But they probably misprinted a couple of characters ('Bo--s'), so probably should be 'Boats'.

Model boat was actually 46 years, option 2.
47, is expensive jewellery and or a weekend spa.


Sorry!

Oh dear, looks like I've blown it.  Should have researched this last year.  {:-{
 
As for 'expensive' jewellery, it could be fatal to quote Captain Nemo . . .
