Second wedding anniversary gift ideas –
The Cotton Anniversary:
Second wedding anniversary gift ideas – in my recent blog Traditional Anniversary Gifts By Year we found out the historical origins of wedding anniversary gift giving. This blog is the second in our series of wedding anniversary gift ideas, do check out our first wedding anniversary gift ideas here if you’ve not had chance yet.
We also wanted to share the work of some other talented designers and makers. We have admired these along the way and had to share them with you as lovely second wedding anniversary gift ideas.
A cotton hammock for two
How cosy does this look, especially to share with your loved one! This hammock is hand-woven from three miles of soft, hand-dyed cotton cord and comes in a handy tote bag made from weather-safe canvas.
You will also be shopping with conscience the hammocks are made by members of a small village of endangered Mlabri people in northern Thailandas.
Uncommon Goods says ” The Mlabri were nearly wiped out in the mid 20th century, when the teak forests of their home were cut down for decorative wood. But they have begun a resurgence by turning to their traditional weaving skills as a source of sustainable income for their community. ”
A romantic gift to accommodate two loungers side by side. Priced at £105. MORE HERE.
A map printed on cotton
Remembering a place visited, a venue married or a moment treasured is always a lovely way to mark a wedding anniversary. Delightful Living, are a husband and wife team from Derbyshire offer a range of thoughtful, bespoke gift ideas.
They say “The cotton anniversary map print is the ideal gift for a couple who are celebrating 2 years of marriage. Your treasured location can be printed directly onto the natural cotton fabric. Finally, add the wording to appear under your personalised map. This could be the name of the couple, the year and the occasion, for example; an engagement, wedding or honeymoon.”
Your bespoke map print can be printed in 4 different colour options; teal, gold, french grey and duck egg, priced at £36. MORE HERE.
A cosy cotton throw
What’s sweeter in life than curling up on the sofa on a Sunday evening with a glass of wine in hand, an easy watch film and a cosy throw over your knees? Well Sophie Home brings us a gorgeous range of bold throws perfect for winter on the sofa or summer in the garden.
She says “Our throws are 100% cotton, carefully machine-knitted and, weighing in at over a kilo each, satisfyingly substantial. Generous yarn content and a compact knit give them a lovely soft hand-feel and the warmth you need in cooler months. Soft and machine washable, we love to throw them around our shoulders in the summer too; in the garden, after sun-down.”
Available in a number of colour options, priced at £68.00. MORE HERE.
This month will also see me making new work in cotton to celebrate my 10 years in business. I have set myself the challenge to make a new piece of jewellery per month for the rest of the year. Each month will be themed by the materials of the anniversaries 1-10. Do follow me on Instagram to track my journey.
