The second year of marriage is not supposed to be as difficult as the first one, when partners have to get accustomed to living together and accepting each other's habits and way of life. So, once the first wedding anniversary is gone, spouses are more understanding with each other, and they are now looking forward to celebrating their second anniversary as a married couple. While this anniversary approaches, each of them will wonder what would be the best gift to offer the other one, to show their love and appreciation, and meet the partner's style, necessities and preferences.
I truly hope that my suggestions of second anniversary gifts will be useful for those having to choose the perfect gift for this special occasion.
Many people follow either the traditional, or the modern themes for the giftgiving on their wedding anniversaries, and I also recommend you to do so. As far as the traditional symbol of the second year of marriage is concerned, it is represented by cotton – a material suggesting warmth, coziness and versatility, which should feature a strong marriage.
The most common cotton anniversary gifts are personalized bath robes, pillow cases or cushions, personalized underwear both for women, and men, usual clothing items (personalized T-shirts, coats, trousers, etc.), armchair throws, tablecloths, etc. The most perfect one is the one you consider best fitting your partner's style and necessities, and if offered with love, it will definitely have the impact you are expecting.
If you are one of those who usually choose the modern theme for their wedding anniversary gifts, then this second year you will have to purchase a china item for your dear one, to surprise them with. It can be a china figurine, a tea or coffee set, china candlesticks, a vase or a photo frame, according to what you think would best suit his or her character.
