ABOUT 2ND WEDDING ANNIVERSARIES
Congratulations on your 2nd wedding anniversary. In many countries (including the UK and US) the 2nd wedding anniversary is traditionally known as the Cotton Anniversary. So, how did cotton become the traditional second year anniversary gift? There’s a lot of symbolism at work here.
Cotton has long been held as the classical token for the second marital year as it is through to symbolize the intertwining of a couple’s lives and loves after two years as husband and wife. The interwoven nature of the cotton fibers mirrors the intense strengthening of the couple’s relationship.
HOW TO CELEBRATE A 2ND ANNIVERSARY
With the theme “Cotton”, there are many ideas for you to celebrate your 2nd wedding anniversary.
Attractive yet functional home furnishings
Some stylish cotton bedding which matches their home décor or a pretty tablecloth for the dining room are just two perfect ideas to select from. Clothing is another good choice for a cotton gift, with shirts, blouses, handkerchiefs or even monogrammed fluffy bathrobes being perfect gift solutions. Decorations like cotton flowers or cotton picture frames are also a great idea.
A holiday together
You can gift yourself and your spouse a pair of tourist tickets to spend a romantic vacation together, in an exotic setting, with a range of excursions and activities that match your shared interests and interests. Closer to home, a night at the theater, followed by a candlelit dinner near a river or lake, and a hearty wine dinner is also a good idea. And don’t forget to save photos of the two of you.
