Anniversary gift traditions are an odd thing. If I were to follow the old tradition, I’d be giving my wife ivory (though, the updated, more politically correct gift suggestion stresses the importance of using imitation ivory). Don’t misunderstand me, I think fourteen years of marriage deserves something significant; I just know that my wife deserves more. Any woman who is able to accept a man for who he is and love him unconditionally is worth much more than ivory. I was fortunate enough to find such a woman and after fourteen years, I could probably get her the mounted elephant head and she’d still laugh about it (though maybe not right away) and love me anyway. For that I’m grateful and blessed.
