July 24, 2017

Traditional sixth anniversary gift-givers will be relieved to discover that they have two materials to choose from this time around, and the pair couldn’t be more opposed if it tried. Your options? Candy… and iron. How the two came to coexist as traditional sixth anniversary gifts, we may never know, but it’s our duty to report on them, and so we’ve amassed ten suggestions to fill the void—five that incorporate sugary treats, and five our favorite heavy metal, plus, of course, one modern gift, a reprise of our most recent post in wood.
