For your 8th Wedding Anniversary, you'll need to get a little creative as the traditional gift this year is...bronze and pottery! As for your modern gift, look for linens and lace! Still stumped? Well then lets dive into the best 8th anniversary gifts for him and her!
For the 8th anniversary one of the traditional gifts is pottery! Sign up for a pottery or ceramics class with your partner and create beautiful vases, bowls, cups and other unique creations! This is a great bonding experience and you'll get to take home your hand crafted art work and add to your decor! Be prepared though! Making pottery can be messy!
Linen Pillow Cases/Sheets
Spruce up your living room or bedroom decor with a touch of brand new linen! Look for linen pillow covers with fun designs or stitching or throw blankets with tassels and pretty patterns! Incorporating linen into your decor will add a splash of boho chic into your space and can be an excuse to donate your old sheets and pillow cases for something new!
Linen Silverware Place-mats
In addition to your new pillow cases and sheets, incorporate some flatware accessories like this useful and easy to wash silverware place-mats. They're perfect for when you have guests over or to use while travelling/camping with your reusable wooden forks, knives, and spoons!
Cobalt Blue Linen
Cobalt Blue is one of the themes of the 8th wedding anniversary. So why not get the best of both with blue linen? Look for curtains, sheets, throw blankets, clothing, re-usable napkins, the possibilities are endless!
One of the 8th wedding anniversary flowers is lilacs! Lilacs come in beautiful purple tones and make lovely bouquets! Present her with fresh or false lilacs in a creative vase such as a cute watering can OR better yet, a ceramic vase you made yourself!
Store Bought Pottery
Nothing wrong with buying pre-made ceramic pieces! Gift your partner a new kitchen set of unique ceramic bowls, cups, plates, tea pots, candy dishes, you name it! We can't all be creative, but we can appreciate a nice bowl when we see it!
While bronze gifts are kind of hard to find at the average store, you can always settle for copper as they are almost completely the same minus a few mineral elements. If you do find bronze, hooray! Gift your partner with new bronze or bronze plated kitchen tools such as a kettle, mixing tools, serving spoons, pots and pans, and even flatware! Bring a little color to your kitchen with a gift you can both put to use!
