So yesterday marked our 14th anniversary. Out of curiosity I looked up to see what the traditional gift is for 14 years. On the Hallmark website it said Animals*. What? So the asterisk basically said that the traditional gift was ivory, but that's not ethical. So they changed it to animals? So I'm supposed to come home with a kitten? That's crazy. They could have changed it to bone, antler, or just something ivory colored, but no, they chose Animals.
I won't even get into the more modern anniversary gift suggestions. It is basically the same stuff over and over again: jewelry.
