Congratulations! You're celebrating your second anniversary with your husband or boyfriend. You want to make the day special but are void of any gift ideas. Traditionally, cotton is the second-year wedding anniversary gift, so sexy lingerie is one option. You may opt to steer clear from tradition and go for a gift of your choice. When looking for a second-year anniversary gift for him, several options are available.

Bed Linen

Personalise a blanket by placing an image of your wedding photo or a picture of the both of you on your first date onto the blanket. Include matching bed sheets and pillow cases. If you choose, monogram your names onto the linen. For a guy who enjoys the outdoors, purchase a king-size cotton hammock made for two. Give him a throw pillow with your family portrait on the front.

Casual Clothing

Purchase a T-shirt with the family name printed on the back. Include a wedding photograph on the front of the shirt. Give him a plush robe with his initials monogrammed on it. Include cotton pyjamas and a matching pair of slippers to complete the set. For a barbecue grill master, purchase a cotton apron and chef's hat. Have the apron engraved with something humorous, such as "World's Greatest Cook" or "Watch Out! Hot Stuff Coming Through."


Rekindle your romance with a homemade candlelight dinner made for two. Present him with all his favourite dishes when he walks through the door that evening. For those who wish to sneak in a little bit of tradition, serve the dinner in sexy cotton lingerie. Take him to his favourite restaurant and take charge. Order the soufflé in advance and pick up the tab. Take him home and continue the trend by taking charge in the bedroom.

Sports Fan

He loves his sports, so get him sports gear of his favourite team. Include items such as a baseball hat, socks and jackets with the team's logo. Purchase jerseys and other sportswear, such as socks and headbands. Surprise him with tickets to a game. He'll be able to wear his sports gear while cheering his team on.

Other Ideas

Snuggle together in an oversized cotton blanket made for two. Have a family heirloom photo quilt made. Include long-forgotten images of him as a child and his siblings. Include wedding photos as well. Give him monogrammed polo shirts he can wear for casual Fridays at the office or have T-shirts made of his college team. Whisk him away to a tropical island for an anniversary vacation or head off to a local bed and breakfast for some relaxation time.
