The "traditional gift" for 2nd Anniversary is china. Since it doesn't specify what "china" means & we already own several sets of china, I thought a little outside of the box for hubby's gift.
First I made him a scrapbook that was made on paper made in China. The pictures were taken in Wisconsin, which is not in China, so I felt that that was kind of cheating.
So I sat & I thunk & I thunk & I thunk some more...what could I get him that is China or Chinese? I could get him a pretty little antique tea cup & saucer to add to the collection but that's my collection of tea cups, so that wouldn't be very fun for him. I could get him tickets to China but if we are going to fly over an ocean, it'll be to Ireland before anywhere else.
I thunk & thunk & thunk....

It's completely made in China. The scrapbook is of him at Tough Mudder. It took me 8 hours to complete. He better like it as much as he said he does.
I just realized I could have sent him to China. That would be a great Anniversary trip. I don't know why I didn't think about this before--nowhere does it say we have to celebrate our Anniversary together.
I'll go to Ireland.
