Second-Anniversary Ideas

Looking forward to your second wedding anniversary? Celebrate with the traditional second-anniversary material: cotton! It signifies durability, comfort and adaptability. Gift ideas like luxurious Egyptian cotton bedding, lingerie, a brand-new mattress, a meal served with fancy cotton napkins -- even jewelry tucked inside a cotton pouch -- are appropriate for this amazing day. Looking for a modern spin on second-anniversary materials? Try china. A gorgeous vase, a porcelain photo frame with your wedding picture inside or a brand new china serving set (if you didn't register for one, of course!) would make a great gift. We've got inspiring vacation ideas for your second anniversary, as well as smaller weekend trips and date night ideas. Cook a fabulous, romantic anniversary meal with our dinner and cocktail recipes.
