Traditional Theme for 2nd wedding anniversary -Cotton

modern theme for 2nd anniversary gifts - china

Good quality china can last for generations. Or be smashed to fragments by an instant’s lack of thought. That’s marriage for you! But after two good years it’s time to get some decent crockery that matches and complements those MasterChef moments in the kitchen. Or explore the China theme in terms of the country itself, be it here via a restaurant or something Chinese or a trip abroad.

2nd anniversary modern gift ideas

  • Any sort of tasteful (or not!) china house items, like a vase, crockery, jug, plant pot, candleholders etc.

  • His and hers mugs (with amusing photo)

  • Classy and stylish dinner sets: Royal Doulton if that’s your thing; or a trip to a famous pottery during a romantic weekend?

  • Minimal design store china options for something more modern and useable

  • China sculpture or figurine – but remember you’re not buying for your Nan

  • A trip to the Forbidden City in Beijing

  • Buy some elegant new chopsticks and give them a workout in one of the UK’s five Chinatowns: in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, or Nottingham. Or one near you outside the UK.

gemstone for 2nd anniversary - garnet (alternative : Rose Quartz)

Garnet gets its name from the Latin word “garanatus” which means “like a seed”. This is a reference to the pomegranate, as small garnets look like the bright red seeds you find inside that fruit. 

Rose quartz is a name for specimens of quartz with a nice pink colour. Advocates say that rose quartz purifies and opens the heart to promote love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace.
