For my son's birhday every year, they give him a 100 year old silver dollar and a current year silver dollar.
Daughter B's Silver Pattern Joan of Arc by International
My silver pattern: Modern Victorian by Lunt (this is my mom's too--am I smart or what! I have 24 placesettings for large parties!) Some pieces are monogrammed with an "A".
My dream patterns (for my second set) are either going to be from Tiffany or Christofle (my everyday stainless is from Christofle. )
