Lots of couples don’t believe that the 2nd anniversary and each year afterwards are as important as the 1st, 5th, 10th, 25th, etc. That’s simply not true. In today’s day and age where divorce rates are high and Michael Martin Murphy sang “Doesn’t anybody ever stay together anymore”, celebrating longevity in marriage regardless of the year is important.
With that said, here are the traditional and modern recommended gifts for your 2nd anniversary. The traditional gift is cotton as it represents durability and versatility, two strong attributes for marriage. Cotton is also very practical for this year as it may be the year you purchase your first home together and can be used for new sheets, table cloths, towels, bath robes, etc.
A more modern choice is fine china. You can go for a smaller scale purchase for each other in this department for the 2nd anniversary as purchasing a large set may be more than the financial limits you may set for spending on each other. Fine china can be a great gift to remember your 2nd year of marriage by and can be passed from generation to generation.
Regardless of your 2nd anniversary gift, the traditions you develop early on in marriage can have a dramatic effect on the life you build for your young family. The key is to keep the romantic flame kindled and having a guidepost like this ezine to help you with your gift choices doesn’t hurt either. Happy Gift Hunting and here’s to a loving marriage!
