Q. My husband and I have decided to celebrate our anniversaries with the traditional anniversary gifts. Does the gift have to be entirely made of the item? For instance, our second anniversary is in a few months. Does the gift have to be all cotton?
A. Not necessarily. For example “silver” can mean anything from sterling silver to silver colored. Remember, these are traditional gifts, but that does not mean that you are restricted to that particular list.
Nowadays, 100% cotton items are readily available in bed linens, table linens and clothing.
