It is two years since your wedding (doesn’t time fly) and your second wedding anniversary is fast approaching; here’s the facts on what the material or symbol is appropriate for 2nd anniversary gifts:
A Traditional Anniversary gift should be themed around Cotton or Straw or for a more contemporary gift idea the modern list shows China as the appropriate theme.
You could also look to the Gemstone Anniversary list which suggests Rose Quartz (although some variance is possible with Garnet also quoted) and if this is still not your ideal theme the appropriate flowers are Cosmos, of which there are many varieties.
For 2nd anniversary gifts, Cotton themed presents are relatively easy to find with Handkerchief gifts sets or personalised Mr and Mrs Robes/ Towels a great choice. If your looking for a getaway break why not theme it to match the second anniversary. Something like a trip to the cotton fields in America or with straw you could look to have a picnic in a hayloft or simply arrange a hoe-down party with authentic straw bales.
We see a lot of Rose Quartz items purchased for the 2nd Anniversary both Necklace/Pendant sets and a lovely double Rose Quartz heart which is great for the 2nd year anniversary
