I won’t lie, it’s a little sad that I can’t really call myself a “newlywed” anymore (time to update my about page!), but my gratitude for celebrating my 2nd anniversary married to Ryan far ourweighs that sentiment! Our wedding day was an amazing celebration with our family, friends and even a surprise performance by the Ohio State Alumni Band, but the true bliss comes in the marriage itself, not its inception.
Remember how I was stumped over what to get for our 1 year anniversary (the paper year)? Well I struggled even more with finding a modern spin on the 2 year anniversary gift (cotton). See, I strive more than anything when gift giving to surprise my gift recipient, and I felt like cotton clothing would be too predictable. Since I knew cotton would be a struggle this year, I got started hunting early and found some really creative cotton anniversary gift ideas!
Mr. and Mrs. Pillowcases
Cuddly Throw Blanket
Canvas Print with First Dance Lyrics
Plush Bath Towels
Luxurious Bed Sheets
Wedding Date Cotton Print
Snuggly Bath Robe
Personalized Cotton Pillow
Lucky for me, the week before our anniversary Ryan randomly mentioned that he would like some plush, white towels, so although I had come up with several anniversary gift ideas, he handed it right to me!
We had a great anniversary. We checked out a new restaurant in Grandview and had a great meal and wine. Since the cotton gift was covered, I also got him a massage which he really needs for his back pain.
Happy Anniversary Ryan! xo
