Cotton Anniversary Gifts
Cotton anniversary gifts for your wife can be fun and romantic, you can even get roses made from cotton and funny 2nd anniversary t-shirts from Just Paper Roses.
And if your wife enjoys relaxing and needs some pampering, cotton might be the best choice. Purchase one of the most luxurious cotton towels you can find and maybe a high quality, very soft bathrobe as well. Fill the tub with warm water and bubble bath, as well as a few rose petals, right before she comes home from work or from running household errands. While she's in the tub, scrub her back and feed her decadent chocolate covered strawberries and maybe a glass of bubbly, then let her use those two wonderful cotton gifts you just purchased. She'll love you forever.

The trip could be a bit expensive so you could bring China to your wife, this could be with a romantic meal for two at your favorite Chinese restaurant or a fun night in with a Chinese take out!
If she has a sense of humor, purchase some small trinket that says "Made in China" and give it to her along with a nicer gift. Give her the cheaper one first to get a reaction. Of course, you can always stick to the traditional meaning of China and purchase some dinnerware to match your existing set. This way you can entertain a larger number of people. Or you could cook her favorite meal and have a romantic night in.
