More Cotton Anniversary Gift Ideas

Monday, April 29, 2013

Our second anniversary is a week from tomorrow. It's crazy how fast the time has gone!

Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of extra money right now, so we're not planning to do anything gift wise (which bums me out, considering how much thought I've put into it -- maybe I'll find a way to pull something off though), and I'm just planning to cook a nice dinner for the two of us.

Anyway, I'm going to stop being a downer now and get to the good stuff -- more cotton anniversary ideas!

1.) A blank canvas. A canvas is a nice cotton gift for an artsy type.
     -Bonus gift: pairing it with new paints and/or brushes.
     -Double bonus gift: if you want to give an experience, you can pair the new supplies with a painting class!

2.) Cotton candy. Married to a kid at heart? Cotton candy is a fun, silly way to satisfy a sweet tooth.
     -Bonus gift: You can pair the cotton candy with tickets to the state fair for a fun outing together.
     -Double bonus gift: If your loved one really loves cotton candy, maybe a cotton candy machine is in order?

3.) A nice cotton dress shirt (this one is Croft and Barrow, available at Kohl's). Most people could always use a nice button down; they're classic and can be dressed up or down.
     -Bonus gift: Make reservations for a nice dinner out so that he has somewhere to wear his new shirt :)
     -Double bonus gift: Perhaps give a coordinating tie as well. My husband, at least, would love that -- he's a sucker for ties!

4.) A golf towel (like this one from Golfsmith). Got a golfer in your life? You can have a golf towel monogrammed for them so they always know which one is theirs.
     -Bonus gift: Several courses/pro shops offer gift certificates for greens fees.
     -Double bonus gift: Want to give something more? A new club might be just the ticket :)

5.) A cotton onesie (this one is from Gymboree). Expecting a little one? A cotton onesie is a fun gift for a daddy-to-be. If you haven't told him yet, it can be a cute way to announce your pregnancy.

6.) Pajamas (these Justice League pj pants are from Target). Pajamas are cozy, and I don't think I know anyone who has too many pairs.
     -Bonus gift: Breakfast in bed could be a fun surprise.
     -Bonus gift: Have a family slumber party! The two of you (plus any kiddos you may have) don your pjs, order a pizza, pop in a movie, and snuggle down with some blankets. Togetherness is always a fun gift :)

7.) A quilt. You can make one if you're crafty, but if you're not, you can always buy one (like this one from Target).
     -Bonus gift: use the quilt as a picnic blanket, and pack a romantic picnic for two.

8.) A cotton robe (this one is from Pottery Barn). A cozy plush robe always feels nice, especially warm from the dryer.
     -Bonus gift: Plan an at-home spa day!
     -Bonus gift: DIY pampering not your thing? Schedule a couples' massage.

9.) A fun cozy hat (like this Stay Puft marshmallow man hat from Spencer's). My husband's a sucker for fun hats too.
     -Bonus gift: Are you guys a couple of ski bunnies? Plan a trip to the slopes.
     -Double bonus gift: New skis or a snowboard would surely be appreciated on the hills.

  1. These are really nice ideas!

    I love #1! Even though I can draw, I can't paint, lol. I ended up buying a 11x14 canvas of a picture from our reception last week on sale (under $20!). I can't wait to show my husband next month.

    1. I was actually going to put a canvas print on here, but decided not to at the last minute, lol. It's a great gift! (And that's an AMAZING deal you scored, girl!)

  3. Yesterday was a big day for me and my husband. He got me a bunch of flowers and rum cake and we enjoyed our anniversary with joy and shared every moment. To wish him I ordered a customized photo greeting card that has our lovely picture printed on it. Thanks to "Post My Greetings" that helped me to customize anniversary greeting card for a husband. I really like this website to shop gifts and cards and moreover it is very reliable and unique because of their customization feature. To know more -
