2nd Cotton Wedding Anniversary Universal Gift Ideas

Last but not least, if you don't want to go for a serious cotton gift like the ones above, here go a few easy ways to still honor the tradition without going too deep in cotton-themed madness:

-Give your spouse a cotton candy bouquet!

-We know DIY isn't everyone's thing, but did you know you can use cotton to make a neat nebula in a jar?

-Getting a dog is a serious decision, but just so you know: white Pomeranians look a LOT like cotton balls ;)


The symbolic flowers for the 2nd wedding anniversary are Cosmos & Lily Of The Valley. Unless your significant other is allergic to pollen, you can’t go wrong with a bouquet that contains these flowers - and it doesn't actually matter what gender your spouse is, flowers are for everybody. Cosmos represents a playful love because of their liveliness and is full of life without being showy. Lily of the valley symbolizes purity and also smells delightful. You can also find flower gift ideas here.
The gemstone traditionally associated with second anniversaries is garnet, and it's not surprising that the ideal (and traditional) second wedding anniversary color theme is red. Garnet is undeniably romantic, and its deep red sparkle is the perfect symbol of a marriage celebrating its second year. Therefore you can't go wrong with giving garnet jewelry as a gift! But, basically, any other jewelry that your partner would love will work just fine.
Another universal gift choice for an anniversary is sweet gifts. It's romantic, useful, and extremely thoughtful at the same time, especially if your spouse loves chocolate. Lovely shirts and bedding also go really well with the cotton anniversary theme while being an extremely practical gift that will surely be loved and used a lot.
In case you want to get something cotton-themed and really practical but don't know what to choose, you can check out this cotton anniversary bundle that checks all of the necessary boxes while still being thoughtful and unique.

Modern 2nd Anniversary Gifts

The modern take on the 2nd wedding anniversary gift is china or porcelain gifts. It's both delicate and resilient and symbolizes the fact that the marriage and the couple's relationship is both strong and fragile at the same time.
Also - it's a perfect opportunity to update or add to the tableware collection, which is important for young families. But if they already have everything, a porcelain figurine or decor item will be a great addition to their family home. China provides lots of interesting options in a very large price range! And, if chosen wisely, this gift can even become the family heirloom :)
But of course, if the couple doesn't need any of these items, modern and practical gifts are always welcome! Don't limit yourself on the options - tech items, good expensive alcohol, subscription boxes, etc. But whatever you end up choosing, make sure to make it extra special with a thoughtful 2nd wedding anniversary card.

Looking for some ideas for a 2nd wedding anniversary celebration? You've come to the right place.

Your first anniversary likely included all possible classic celebration options, including champagne and biting that top cake layer. So you can be rightfully confused when you reach the second anniversary. What should you do now? How exactly do you celebrate such an important event in a way that would feel fresh and new? Well, no matter if you're leaning more into traditional themes or you're a step-outside-the-box person, we've got advice for you!

2nd Wedding Anniversary Date and Activities Ideas

-Create cotton-looking clouds in a molecular cocktail masterclass;

-Embark on an adventure in some theme park with cotton candy, or hire a photographer do a photoshoot in some kind of cotton or cotton candy-themed photo zone;

-Fly above the fluffy cotton clouds in a romantic hot air balloon;

-Relax together in luxurious cotton robes on a special pamper day at a spa center;

-Relax and slumber all day in high-quality fresh cotton bedsheets;

-Have a relaxing shopping day and buy some cotton clothes along the way;

-Arrange a gift basket with a variety of cotton seeds (or cosmos seeds if you like flowers), along with two pairs of cotton garden gloves and a handmade card that states a promise to plant these seeds together when springtime comes. You can also plant them right on your anniversary day if it's the appropriate season for it!

-Make some handmade paper together. It's a hobby that requires a little bit of preparation and equipment, but if you're both into crafts and arts - you'll end up with incredible thick handmade cotton paper for drawing pr making postcards for one another;

-Go camping - if you both are into it, of course. It's a relatively affordable option and, if the weather is right, it'll beautiful and romantic. Stargazing under the warm cotton blankets is a perfect way to end your second anniversary celebration day;

-Don’t feel like going out for your second wedding anniversary? That’s totally okay and you don't have to, and spending lazy days in the comfort of your own home is an essential part of life. You can just make your night a little extra special and themed. Snuggle up on the couch under a soft cotton blanket, have some hot chocolate with soft-as-cotton-clouds marshmallows, and of course, some cotton candy if you like it sweet. Just so you know, movies with a "cotton" in their title exist as well :)

There are all sorts of ideas that are at least vaguely related to cotton, so there's no need to only limit yourself to the options we've been able to come up with. You know your spouse better than anyone else, so if something comes to mind and you know you both will love it, it doesn't even have to be about cotton. The biggest treasure is the time spent together having fun!

2nd Wedding Anniversary Party and Decor Ideas

The second wedding anniversary celebration can traditionally be a dinner date. Going out to dinner may include some cosmos or lily of the valley bouquets and possibly a piece of garnet jewelry as gifts for the main couple. If it's a simple romantic dinner at home, fancy china and a bowl of cosmos flowers on the table would look fun and perfectly align with the theme.
The cotton wedding anniversary celebration is really special to you and your spouse because you keep going your way to an exciting lifetime together. So if you're serious about the celebration, it's a good idea to carefully plan the dinner party to reflect that theme. You can turn your home into a dressed-up french cottage, a sophisticated restaurant, or simply adorn it with flowers and red decoration elements. The different aesthetic will totally change the feel of your home and make it feel like you're on a staycation, so you won't even need to rent a restaurant.
Flowers always are a beautiful touch for any occasion and date, and they can be used to add color, texture, and vibrance. When it comes to wedding anniversaries, don't forget about the specific corresponding flowers to match the number of years being celebrated. As we mentioned before, for the cotton wedding anniversary it can be cosmos, lily of the valley, or - surprisingly - some cotton flowers, real or fake.
Cotton tablecloth, cotton napkins, and porcelain will totally turn your small tea party into the fanciest royal dinner! Tables often play a huge role in designing any party since they’re perfect for décor and can be functional and fun at the same time. A table runner can be placed over a tablecloth to enhance the color scheme and put everything together, or just to add an extra touch. The table runner for your party can also be made custom using the couple's wedding photos as prints!

2nd Wedding Anniversary Cake Ideas

Adorable toppers! They can be a go-to for every cake and every occasion and making them themed is an amazing addition to any celebration feast! Choose something that has a special meaning for the couple and that matches the party theme. A versatile and traditionally themed option can be a cake shaped like a spool with a cotton thread. Some can even make edible cotton flowers out of fondant or chocolate, but if you can't find any bakery that can do this, toppers saying something like "Happy 2nd anniversary" would be just fine too!
The party cake or cupcakes should incorporate the party’s theme in some way, whether it’s with the toppers, icing color, or embellishments, so keep an eye on that. A muted, pastel color scheme of the toppers, icing, or sprinkles might also go well with the topic of cotton.

Other 2nd wedding anniversary symbols can be:

Modern American: china

United Kingdom (Traditional): paper

Netherlands: cardboard

France: leather

Eastern Europe: paper
