When it comes the time to celebrate second anniversaries, many of us draw a blank on what to get for our spouses. Sure, there's the good old, tried and true, flowers and candy route, but maybe this time, you want to be a little more personal, and a lot less predictable. We'll take a look at both the traditional and modern suggestions for second anniversary gifts, and then some suggestions for each.
Many people prefer to use the traditional suggestions for each anniversary. The traditional suggestion for a second anniversary gift is listed to be cotton. At first glance, that may seem like a tough subject area to pick out a gift for your spouse, but with a little bit of creativity, your options are endless.
Cotton is such a versatile medium, and whether your gift-buying budget is small or large, you've got many choices in this category. One suggestion is a new bed set, containing sheets, pillowcases, and comforter, made from 100% cotton.
If you're handy with a sewing machine, make a set yourself with fabrics purchased from your local textile / fabric shop. This gives you ultimate customization control and endless options; you can make something exactly to the taste of your and your husband or wife.
You could also go as simple as getting your spouse a 100% cotton t-shirt with a design or wording on it that you know will appeal to him or her. If you're willing to spend a little more money, you can purchase something bigger, like a cotton hammock, and all the parts needed to get it set up. This is a gift you're both likely to really enjoy. Those are just a few ideas for a cotton-themed second anniversary gift.
The traditional list has been revamped, and there is a more "modern" version of it now. This modern listing suggests china for a second anniversary present. This category does put a few restraints on you as you're going about picking something out. But don't be afraid to be creative.
Go to an antique store and pick up one item, perhaps something in your spouse's favorite color, and that can be your china item. Or, if you've got the money for it, buy a whole new set for your spouse to display. If you've already got a china set, look into buying a display hutch to show off your treasures.
If you really are into going all out and extravagant, you could plan an actual trip to China for a second anniversary gift! That would be taking this category about as far as you can go!
These are some ideas within the traditional and modern suggestions for second anniversary gifts. Don't be convinced that you have to stay in these subject areas. If you know there is something that would really mean a lot to your spouse and you've got the means to provide it, go for it! After all, you know your spouse better than anyone else!
