Second Wedding Anniversary Gifts

The traditional second wedding anniversary gift of cotton signifies durability and the need for a marriage to remain strong. I've also read that it symbolizes that by the second year of marriage, the couple is comfortable with each other :) There are so many cotton options, but here are a few of my favorites.

Lee and I recently had a conversation about his favorite oxford button down and how buying a second one would be probably be a good idea. If your husband is anything like mine (or me!), having a few tried and true items will make dressing in the morning a bit easier and his wardrobe timeless. Fine his favorite fit and why not throw a manly monogram on it? This is the south after all.

Canvas is another great option and these Lands End totes are a classic favorite. My first grade teacher gifted one to me for my high school graduation and I still use it to this day! Or why not buy new luggage for the two of you and take a vacation!

Still haven't printed any of your wedding photos? What a great opportunity to relive your wedding day and take the time to pick some of your favorite moments to cherish forever.  Gallery wrapped canvas prints make a statement no matter what the photo is of and with the internet at your fingers, they are so easy to print and have shipped right to your front door.

Crisp linens and fluffy bedding are always welcome in my house! Use your anniversary to make your bedroom a place you enjoy relaxing in. It's easy to put the master bedroom at the bottom of the redecorating list but it really does need to be a haven you find peace in at the end of the day.
