9th wedding anniversary gifts are traditionally celebrated with pottery. The great thing about pottery is that it can be both practical with everyday mugs and plates, or ornamental - and there is nothing stopping you from having both.
When you think of ceramics, jewelry is probably not what you think of first.
However this gorgeous handcrafted ceramic ring will hopefully change your mind!
This ring is beautifully crafted from silver with Oaxaca's black pottery ceramic .Available from NOVICA
A romantic way to incorporate pottery into your 9th anniversary gift is to send a pottery rose. You could even send a whole bouquet!
The great thing is they will last for ages and are a sweet reminder of 9 years together.
These roses are available from Just Paper Roses.
As a romantic idea how about breakfast in bed, served with your anniversary gift of matching crockery. You can get fun designs with Mr and Mrs, or the 'World's Best Wife' and 'Worlds Best Husband'! Or you could be more sophisticated with classic tableware.
You can't get more classic than Royal Doulton, they are described as the "quintessential British tableware" and as they are fit for Royalty it is worth a peek.
I also love finding a bargain and have found some great pieces on eBay and there are also some great vintage pottery pieces.
