2nd Year Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

So yesterday I shared how I did LOTS of brainstorming to think of the perfect gift to celebrate my second year anniversary. The tradition is to give something cotton, yet finding the perfect cotton gift was a little harder than I originally anticipated. As my students would say, the struggle is REAL. haha #seriouslytho2nd Year Anniversary Gift Ideas

As I racked my brain for the past few months, I started keeping track of some of the ideas to share with my fellow wives (and husbands!) that may need a little assistance preparing to celebrate year two. Here are some of the ideas I came across (or stole from my clever friends who have already celebrated year #2).

2nd Year Anniversary Gift IdeasOur Anniversary Gift-Giving Motto: Casey and I enjoy being creative and love to use this creativity to show our amazing hubbies some extra thoughtfulness when it comes anniversary time. HOWEVER, we don’t always think a big price tag automatically means the best gift ever. We are all about using these traditional anniversary themes in a way that is meaningful to each of our relationships, which doesn’t always mean lavish gifts but instead ones that are unique/special to our better halves.

So as much as any of these cotton gifts could totally work, we encourage you to choose something that is SPECIAL to your relationship or pair the cotton gift with another, more meaningful ‘something’. Cotton or not, we know your +1 will be in l-o-v-e with anything you choose, especially when it’s special to your relationship.

    My husband and I just celebrated our 2 year anniversary. Cotton was hard, because I wanted to get something sentimental but, it’s cotton. Ha. My husband got me a very nice scarf in our wedding colors (yellow and grey) and I got him a shirt and sweater vest in our alma mater’s colors (and monogram). I thought we did ok! This is a great list!

    • OMG… you did awesome!! Thank you so much for sharing these ideas — I am officially OBSESSED with the idea of incorporating wedding colors into the gift ideas. And your alma maters’ colors?! Genius! I need to recruit you for year three ideas!

  • Love this idea, thanks for sharing!!

    My husband gave me a dreamlines wedding dress sketch, of my dress!!! Oh my goodness girls it was so perfect. I melted when he gave it to me and melt every time I look at it. I just ordered a sketch for a bridal shower. I saw that they have cotton mat frames for their 2 year gift idea. Love it.

    • Thanks so much for sharing, LOVEEE this idea!! =) That husband of yours sounds like a great catch.

    I think it is a good idea to be creative when it comes to getting an anniversary gift. It shows that you do pay attention to your significant other. However, I must say that you can never go wrong with chocolate. http://www.klassykgifts.com/store/c6/anniversary.html
