Anniversaries

Traditional wedding anniversary gifts are chosen from a list of materials that are designated for each year of a couple's married life. The first wedding anniversary is symbolized with paper, and from there traditional anniversary gifts become more precious or scarce to reflect the growing number of years a couple has remained together. Noone seems to understand how these gifts were assigned to each year, but it is certain that as time goes on, the gifts become more lavish.
