Year 2 Anniversary Gift: Wedding Year Two Gift Idea

2nd year anniversary gifts

If you don't want to give the gift
of cotton or china, consider giving Cosmos (the 2nd anniversary flower). They come
in many colors and varieties, so
pick the one that is best suited for the area you live in (a local garden center can steer you in the right direction). Attach a packet of seeds to your gift, buy them from a garden center, or better yet, "do-it-yourself" and present the flowers that you've grown yourself from seeds! Take it one step further and surprise him/her with a cosmos garden to celebrate your second year of marriage!

Alternative 2 Year Anniversary Gift Ideas

If you're still unsure of what to buy, and have a little money to spend, stick with the old standby...jewelry! The gemstones associated with the second anniversary are rose quartz (pink stone) and garnet (red stone). You can find these gems in necklaces, bracelets, earrings, pins, rings, cufflinks, and tie tacs. You can also find figuirines that are made out of rose quartz.
