Cotton is the traditional gift for the second anniversary; move aside socks, there is a much more unique gift in town! Have your favorite song lyric, poem, voice love note, or even a snippet of your wedding vowels transcribed into a soundwave and woven into a cotton canvas. It is a gift totally unique to you and your partner which also looks fantastic on the wall.
For the dapper gentleman in your life, a silk pocket square is a sweet gift for a traditional fourth-anniversary gift. Ensure that you select a color that will compliment his favorite suit and have some fun learning the array of traditional folding techniques for a pocket square. Whilst he is already spruced up and looking smart, he might as well take you out for a special dinner!
You have been married five years now; it is time to start knocking some of those exotic and far-flung destinations off your travel bucket list! The traditional fifth-anniversary gift is wood so this superbly crafted wooden 3D world map is the perfect gift. Add a little extra hint by adding the wooden pins and pick a future trip!
Your stylish beau will adore this camel-colored, cashmere beanie. Adorned with the classic Gucci stripe, this hat is a definite Winterwear upgrade. Enjoy the cooler months this year with the soft, cozy yet smart beanie. He always strives to look his best, this Italian classic wardrobe addition will definitely be welcome!
There are many old jokes out there regarding men buying women vacuum cleaners as anniversary gifts and the devastating repercussions of this token. But all jokes aside, who wouldn’t be thrilled with this robot vacuum?! Although an untraditional 10th-anniversary gift, it still provides a nod to the theme.
Less time cleaning leads to more time focused on the finer aspects of life, like celebrating 10 years!
The old proverb ‘Give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime’ has never been more relevant. You could celebrate your ninth anniversary by making your husband breakfast in bed OR you could buy him an omelet maker and teach him to fend for himself! The traditional 9th-anniversary gift of pottery suits this beautifully handcrafted omelet maker perfectly.
You have been married for thirteen years and it has been an absolute dream – keep it that way with this intricate, lace, handcrafted dreamcatcher. Traditionally considered as a token of protection, armor, and love; these traits are a perfect symbol for the everlasting sanctity of your relationship.
The traditional anniversary gift for 14th years of marriage is ivory. Ivory does look better on elephants and it's best to avoid elephant ivory products altogether. Pick something along the modern gift theme (gold) or just ignore the whole theme alltogether and get something practical.
Like... a steak knife?
This steak knife set is both beautiful and purposeful; confident in their craftsmanship, the set comes with a lifetime warranty. It is the ultimate manly gift for a special eleventh anniversary! Combine this investment piece with two beautiful cuts of meat and a bottle of wine – he won’t be disappointed and he might even cook!
Upgrade his morning brew with this delightfully designed bone china mug. Lovingly crafted in England, Wedgewood has been producing fine china and luxury porcelain since 1759. The finish on the mug has almost pearlescent qualities which really upgrades his daily caffeine fix with a sense of indulgent occasion. Since it is your anniversary, perhaps you can make the coffee – but only for today!
You have been together for such a long time *get it*! What better way to celebrate this monumental milestone than a beautiful brass sundial. Perfect for your green-fingered or nature-loving spouse. This stunning garden piece will always remind you both of the twenty-one happy years together – quite the feat!
