You have spent two years of wedded bliss with your loving spouse and it seems to have gone by so quickly. Now, the question is what to buy your other half for your second year anniversary? The traditional gift is based around cotton and there are so many items you can choose from and now, you know even more about what they want and what they are interested in. Here are some suggestions of great traditional 2nd wedding anniversary gift ideas.
Cotton Home-wares for the Decor Lover
If your spouse loves to decorate and create a beautiful and stylish home then the obvious cotton gift ideas are home furnishings. These can include bed linens such as cover sets, sheets sets, cushions, towels, serviettes, curtains, throw rugs and table cloths. The list is long.
Think of the type of decor and colors that are already used in your home and give something that compliments these. Ladies, you may want to drop slight hints for the gents if you need a particular home-wares item when your anniversary is around the corner. Something like “we may need to get new quality towels soon” may just help them out. Quality items will always be a better choice. A 1000 thread count cover set for example, would be more comfortable to sleep in and would last longer.
It is no surprise that cotton is the preferred material for dining and kitchen fabrics as it provides the best insulation for hot temperatures. If your partner loves to cook, kitchen items in the cotton fabric may be the way to go. Oven mitts, aprons, tableware such as place-mats and coasters are some recommended items.
A very unique and thoughtful gift is a his and hers cotton hammock. It is a something they just might need to help them relax and unwind every now and then. Imagine your loved one being able to lay back and read a book before having an afternoon nap on the balcony or a quiet space in the backyard.
Stylish Cotton Apparel
Cotton is known for its durability and comfort so what a perfect give idea for your love. By now you should know their size and fashion style and if not then maybe you just want to give them a gift card to their favorite store.
Some suggestions for cotton apparel gifts are pajamas, underwear and boxers, dresses and shirts. Pretty much any clothing that is made from sort of cotton blend are worthy gifts.
Matching cotton bathrobes is a popular second anniversary gift and it is even more special when they are embroidered. Couples traditionally embroider them with monograms. What a better way to cuddle up with your wife or hubby than in a fluffy robe.
