Celebrating two years together as a couple traditionally calls for a gift made of cotton; or if you're applying modern etiquette, a china-related anniversary present is appropriate. Inventive ways to tell your girlfriend or wife "happy second anniversary" involve using her favourite things along with traditional and contemporary anniversary materials to create a gift she won't soon forget.

Cotton Gift Basket

Give your wife a gift basket filled with cotton themed items as an anniversary gift. For instance, present her with a white basket -- the second anniversary colour -- filled with comfortable cotton pyjamas and plush slippers in the colour she likes best, a set of white hand towels monogrammed with her initials, and an assortment of gourmet teas and coffees to help her unwind after a long day. Or, present her with a couple of cotton blouses she can wear to work, along with a cotton fashion scarf and handbag made of cotton as a fashionable second anniversary gift. Include her favourite perfume, or an accessory like a belt or hat to complete the gift.

China Tea Set

Since china is the modern gift for the second anniversary, give your girlfriend a tea set made of china in her favourite colour. Have the pitcher or tea cups professionally painted with your sweetie's initials, and give the present to her on the picnic you've prepared for your anniversary. Bring along a white cotton blanket for you to enjoy your meal on, and prepare a light, healthy meal for her to enjoy, such as pasta salad with fresh veggies, finger sandwiches made with chicken or turkey breast, and of course, shortbread cookies to eat with the tea you'll be serving in her china gift.

Cotton Jewelry

Give your wife jewellery with cotton accents as an eye-catching gift that is sure to impress. A watch with a cloth band is a fashionable gift, particularly if the band is in her favourite colour. Bracelets and necklaces featuring beads wrapped in patterned or solid cotton fabric, or necklaces made of cotton fabric in the shape of flowers are a sophisticated anniversary gift that can also have a crafty look. In addition to the cotton jewellery, present her with a bouquet of cosmos -- the second anniversary flower -- in fresh colours like pink, white, and yellow.

Furniture Accents

Cotton furniture decor will make your second anniversary memorable for your girlfriend or wife. Purchase a throw blanket for her sofa or armchair, and have it professionally embroidered with her name or your anniversary date. Or, give her a mini room makeover by purchasing for her a white sofa cover made of cotton, along with throw pillows in her favourite shades and cotton drapes to change the look of her living room. A bedroom comforter set is an appropriate second anniversary gift as well; purchase a set in the colour she likes best, along with an additional bedroom accent like a set of decorative fragrant candles or an elaborate bouquet for her dresser.
