Traditional Vs Contemporary: Gifts For Milestone Occasions

Every birthday, anniversary, and holiday is a cause for celebration, but truly special occasions only occur every once in a while. Silver wedding anniversaries, christenings, graduations, and twenty-first birthdays are big milestones in everyone’s life and they deserve to be honored in a special way. As these milestones have been celebrated for at least 100 years, there are traditional gifts associated with the occasion that can still make wonderful presents. However, depending on your budget, or what you think the recipient will appreciate more, there are contemporary gifts that still celebrate the event.

Christening

The phrase “born with a silver spoon in his mouth” comes from the tradition of gifting silver spoons on a Christening day. In the sixteenth century, any child receiving such a Christening gift would have to come from a wealthy background and were also blessed with a bit of luck. By the mid nineteenth century the Christening gift of a spoon was common amongst the middle and upper classes.

Today, an appropriate christening gift would be a rattle, a soft toy for the baby to sleep with, or a soft, fleece blanket. Anything the parents can use to entertain and comfort their child is usually appreciated.

Wedding Anniversaries

Each wedding anniversary is traditionally associated with a theme, and the gifts exchanged are usually in line with the theme. The theme for the first year is paper, the fifth is wood, the tenth is tin, and the twenty-fifth is silver. Couple can give gifts with the theme in mind, but contemporary gifts have taken the form of holidays, dinners out, or hosting a party for the big milestones such as ten year, twenty-five year, or even fifty year anniversary.

Graduation

The graduation ceremony dates back to the twelfth century, and has traditionally been marked with by wearing caps and gowns, with class rings making an appearance in the early 1900s. There are no official gifts to present to the graduate, but recently proud parents have rewarded their child’s hard work with holidays, cars, or expensive watches. However, you don’t have to buy them anything costly. Grateful graduates will be happy to receive any of these gifts, or just a free drink once the ceremony is over.

Recently, young children have been getting a taste of the graduation excitement with their own kindergarten graduation ceremonies. They also deserve some recognition, so find them some unique presents to mark the occasion. It’ll be years before they have another one.

Coming Of Age

The official age of adulthood varies between countries, but usually it coincides with the day they can legally drink. As a result, traditional gifts are related to alcohol, which can including buying them their first drink, or presenting them with various drinking paraphernalia. However, you could get creative and find them something they will still enjoy the next morning. Help them buy new furniture for the apartment, buy them new gadget that will help them sort out their busy schedule, or organize a group experience they will never forget.

Pooch Problems: Signs They Are Under The Weather

Image Source

It’s always a hard time when your beloved pooch isn’t being themselves. After all, our dog can’t tell us what’s wrong. Therefore, it can be challenging to pinpoint what is wrong with the pet. In fact, it typically ends up with us taking the dog to the vet to find out what’s occurring. However, if you look out for signs, you might be able to figure out what’s happening without even going to the vet. Therefore, here are some signs your pooch is under the weather.

They are not eating anything at all

If your dog is anything like mine, it will cry for food when it’s dinner time. And then gobble it down quickly to appease their appetite. Therefore, it can be a cause for concern if your dog stops eating their dinner. It might be a bad stomach which has stopped them fancying their food. And thankfully like our stomach bugs, it tends to go after 24 hours. However, if it’s longer than this timescale, you need to take them to the vet. After all, not eating could be down to a kidney or liver problem. Or they might have eaten something out of the ordinary which has now obstructed their stomach. And the vet might need to operate quickly to get them out of danger. Therefore, always keep an eye on your pet’s eating habits, so they stay happy and healthy!

They are constantly scratching their skin

It’s common for dogs to scratch their skin occasionally. After all, they might have picked up some dirt in their fur while they were outside and it’s bugging them. But if it’s becoming a constant thing, it’s a sign there is something else more serious going on. For one thing, it could be a sign that your pooch has got fleas or ticks on their body. And then you will have to quickly get treatment like frontline plus for dogs to ensure the fleas become a thing of the past. After all, the longer they stay on your pooch, the more chance your dog will end up with irritated skin. Not only that, but you could potentially end up with the fleas all around your house. Also, scratching their skin could be a sign of some form of infection. After all, they might have accidentally eaten something or come into contact with something which has irritated their skin. Therefore, check their skin thoroughly and go to the doctors for further action.

They are sleeping more than usual

Your dog is likely to sleep a lot in the day. After all, certain breeds do require a lot of sleep. And for other pets, they just love getting some rest! But if your dog is sleeping more than usual, there might be something else wrong. For one thing, they might be dehydrated and require more water to give them energy. The same goes for food; make sure they are eating plenty. Also, make sure it’s not dog depression. After all, more dogs than you realize suffer from this, and it can leave them sluggish. Therefore, do go see the doctor if you notice these signs.

And remember to take your pooch for an annual checkup. That way, the vet can spot quickly if something is wrong.
