So I am a sucker for lists and tradition (I’m sure being Catholic has something to do with that…lol). Well our wedding anniversaries are no different! I have decided to sick to the traditional anniversary gift list first inspired by my grandmother’s Emily Post Etiquette book. This month, we are celebrating our second wedding anniversary (in Spain no less!) and the traditional gift for year 2 is: cotton. So boring huh!?
I spend awhile looking at idea pages for second-year anniversary gifts and I had all the suggested items (towels, bathrobe, sheets, etc.). But I finally thought of something: pajama pants! Still sounds boring? Well, yes it is, but my husband desperately needs a new pair. He has one set that he has worn a million times in the years we have known each other and I am sick of the high-water, worn out blue pj bottoms. So I bought him this nice pair of 100% cotton Nautica cotton pj bottoms for our second wedding anniversary.
If you are interested, the traditional gift for the first wedding anniversary is paper, so I bought Will a copy of the poster we had (& lost!) at our wedding with the quote from Pride & Prejudice he used to propose to me. 🙂 Sentimental, yet gorgeous for our new home. This gorgeous wedding is the thanks to the Buffy Wedding shop on Etsy!!! Check her out! Great custom work.
P.S. Year 3 is leather, let’s see what I come up with for next year!
P.P.S. Thank you Scott David Photography for all the photographic memories of our wedding day!
