Like the hierarchy of wedding anniversary gifts, except when that totem pole—paper for first year, wood for fifth, tin for 10th, gold for 50th, etc—inspires not just traditional and budget-conscious gifts but unimaginative ones, too. Case in point: those first anniversaries. Letter writing might be a dying art, but you'd never know it from the dozens of stationery shops planted throughout each and every American city.
