apart from the obvious!

a packet of screws, or a hammer ?! My DH would be really pleased with that (but then he is odd )

My overflowing ironing basket?

ooh do you know what three years is?

Give him a voucher saying you'll do all his ironing for a month!

Titania Wed 27-Apr-05 14:22:51

eek..its my 6th coming up too!! whens yours?

zubb Wed 27-Apr-05 14:24:52

There is also a 'modern' list that I found and on that the 6th is wooden objects.
Compo 3 is traditionlly leather, but on the 'modern' list is crystal / glass.

Here's a list of anniversary meanings
lol at the ironing voucher - unfortunately I already do all the ironing...

Titania - ours is the 12th May

Titania Wed 27-Apr-05 14:25:59

ooh mines the 8th!

Compo three years is leather so not too hard.
Iron is a really tough one. My sister got given an iron by her DH!
I got mine one of those cast-iron grilly things but it was a present for me really.
If not somethign kitcheny or DIY-ey (or like mornignpaper’s idea) how about something for the garden? Cast-iron planter or similar?

we got married on a Wednesday which I suppose is a bit unusual - but if it had been the Saturday we would have been the same!

Titania Wed 27-Apr-05 14:28:06

buy HIM an iron to do YOUR ironing for a year! lol

JoolsToo Wed 27-Apr-05 14:28:46

iron tablets?

larlylou Wed 27-Apr-05 14:29:10

the modern wedding anniversary gift for 6 years is wood - a bit easier to buy for I'd say! 3 is leather for traditional or crystal/glass for modern.

cupcakes Wed 27-Apr-05 14:29:57

Luckily I have just bought a new iron so I needn't worry about being given that as a gift!
Dh really wants a cploured dualit toaster - do you think there's any way I can pretend that's iron?

morningpaper Wed 27-Apr-05 14:30:08

does he like golf?

cupcakes Wed 27-Apr-05 14:30:48

love the iron tablets!!

cupcakes Wed 27-Apr-05 14:31:24

ha! - a nine iron would have been perfect! (just not for him)

red wine, it's full of it

hannahsaunt Wed 27-Apr-05 17:14:57

Got my dh a cast iron griddle for making pancakes etc. He got me a rather nice cat arching it's back iron - not really ornament people but we've both really taken to this.
