The Cotton and China Anniversary

The second anniversary was just as exciting for me as the first even though we were not really newlyweds anymore.

For the second anniversary, I had more gift ideas prepared and really wanted a way to highlight a precious memory from our wedding. My favorite gift for my husband was found on GeeZees, a website that will print custom text on a photo canvas, which is partly made of cotton. You can have your wedding vows or the lyrics to your wedding song printed on the canvas. This can be done around or over a photo from your wedding. You select the font and color to give it your personal touch. This is really a special and touching gift for your spouse and I loved the finished product so much I had a second one ordered for my sister! I believe this is so personal and thoughtful, it really makes a unique gift for a close family member or dear friend.

If you are traditional, then look for cotton gifts, or for the modern gift go with china.

Here are other gift ideas for your second anniversary. Cheers to you!

Monogrammed handkerchief set.

Nice Egyptian cotton sheets you have always wanted. (I also bought luxurious bed sheets as a second anniversary gift to both of us and this was a GREAT idea. We are still so thankful for these sheets a year later!)

A fancy bathrobe to wear on the weekends.

A beautiful canvas bag for your wife or weekend canvas tote for your husband.

An art class, where you paint and drink vino!

Purchase any China dishes or platters remaining on your wedding register. Kate Spade and Bernardaud were my picks.

A beautiful China vase.
