More Second Anniversary Gift Ideas
Cotton gifts are mainly going to be something to wear;
- a shirt,
- or handkerchief to name a few.
practical for the house;
- tea towels (yes, we have
received those!) you can get some great tea towels and aprons with witty
comments on some are more obvious than others but anything to make you
grin when drying up is a bonus!
- Men also seem to be drawn to the
barbeque, a great apron and the latest gas powered burner and they will
be in their idea of domestic heaven.
- You are probably going to have more luck finding a gift of cotton unless you live in the countryside where straw and straw dollies are available at most local craft shops. You could twist the straw theme to have a weekend away in the countryside - we stayed at a guest house in Yorkshire near our 2nd anniversary and that was in a perfect location for walks and finding great local pubs.
- Strawberries could also fit with your theme, I can hear your groans from here! It may be a bad pun but you could have a cosy night in with strawberries dipped in chocolate or in your Champagne to celebrate ;o) You can even get Chocolate Covered Strawberries delivered to you! Yum! Or you could have them delivered as a surprise!
- You could always incorporate the strawberries with a wicker hamper (more straw) and a cotton picnic blanket and disappear off for a romantic day with lots of yummy treats.
Modern List - China Gifts
- For those that are following the modern list then your second wedding anniversary
gift idea will be in china. By now you will know which bits you are
missing from your wedding list and here is a great excuse to add to your
collection. Or have a look at modernising your kitchen with a set of
funky mugs or plates.
- For those that love to go out then a trip to your best
local Chinese restaurant is a twist on the china theme or if that is not
possible then a take-away and a cosy night in is just as nice.
- If you are wanting to celebrate in style then a trip to
China is a big wow or you could have a city break at one of the many
great China towns. Mmmm the honey buns at the Chinese bakers in Manchester or the duck at London's China Town are wonderful.
- For those who love to travel you could tease your partner
with a new holiday outfit - a gorgeouse new t-shirt wrapped in a
