Cotton Wedding Anniversary Gifts
Once the couple has successfully reached the two year mark, they are have left behind the dodgy one year anniversary well and truly behind and are together forever, for keeps. Well, it might not always work out; but we are all soft romantics at heart. So let’s assume our couple are in it for the long haul.
The First Wedding Anniversary is paper – and everyone knows that. But, come the second year landmark, everyone has forgotten you are still at the start of your married journey, and forget you until you reach half a century, when the silver anniversary is celebrated. That’s 25 years later!
The point is, wouldn’t it be nice to show a couple you are close to how much you care about them both by celebrating their second anniversary with a gift?
Question is – and isn’t it always – what to give? If looked at in a bad light, china is down there with chintz and other old fashioned tat.
However, if this is your take on china, think again. Why? Because the latest ‘chinaware’ is as contemporary as you choose to make it.
China – well, we are actually talking earthenware, but no-one will know the difference, except maybe the Queen, makes a lasting anniversary gift that can be displayed and admired or used and abused.
Let us introduce you to the versatile world of the signature plate. ‘The what?’, you ask. Well, signature plates can be signed by your family on any special occasion (think weddings, anniversaries, Christenings, and even hen nights). The messages are left to dry for 24 hours, then the plate is baked in a domestic oven for 35 minutes. This seals in the messages for eternity.
What’s more, a signature plate can be signed and baked over and over again. So if rellies are away at the time of your celebration, no problem! They can sign your plate at a later date. Good, isn’t it?
Cottoning on to a great gift idea
At first, cotton may seem to pose dilemmas on the gift-giving front. Put your cotton thinking cap on, however, and plenty of ideas can be harvested.
How about some Egyptian cotton sheets, for instance? Or a set of funky, fluffy cotton towels to go in that new bathroom, it's a great Anniversary Gift Idea.
A pair of His and Hers pure cotton pyjamas or bath robes could be appreciated, too.
Moving downstairs; a pure white cotton table cloth looks good in any household, whether it be modern or traditional. White or black crockery to go with it would make for a feast for the eyes, too!
If your second anniversary couple are expecting a baby, then buying them some breathable cotton romper suits for the new arrival will make a perfect gift they will use in a practical way. Bear in mind that the first born usually has lots of stuff initially, so a tip is to buy for a few months down the line, instead.
