Anniversary Cotton Gift Ideas
From this fussy little plant comes an amazing fibre. (Cotton plant -3 image by Alexey Burtsev from Fotolia.com)

Cotton is the traditional gift for the second wedding anniversary. Cotton gifts aren't difficult to find, as it is a fibre used to make clothing, shoes, household items, book covers and more. Cotton, perceived as both simple and sturdy, is a natural fibre.

Linens

An intimate cotton gift that can get over 3,000 hours of use in one year is a set of cotton sheets for the master bed. For a luxurious gift, select cotton sheets with a high thread count, such as Egyptian cotton sheets with 1,200 thread count. Cotton bedding might include a new comforter, bedspread, or soft down pillows encased in cotton pillowcases. For the bathroom, give monogrammed bath towels. If you have a swimming pool or spa, give your spouse a luxurious monogrammed cotton spa robe.

Chef Apron/Hat

If your spouse loves to cook, give the chef in the family a cotton apron, selected to reflect his other interests. For example, if he is a sports fan, give him a chef's apron decorated with the logo from his favourite team. A less practical, yet playful cotton gift for the spouse who loves to cook is a chef's hat.

Hammock

Spoil your spouse by giving her a place to read on lazy Sunday afternoons, by presenting her with a hammock made from cotton fibres. Instead of a hammock for napping, give her a hammock swing. If there isn't a convenient tree to hang your gift, don't forget to purchase a frame to go along with the hammock or swing.

Clothing

One of the most obvious of cotton gifts to give your spouse is clothing. If the budget is a little tight this year, your spouse might accept a pair of cotton socks, as long as you include a foot rub. Cotton clothing gifts, such as a robe or jacket, might get more use than a cotton blouse or shirt, as those items may get less frequent use before going out of style. For something a little funky, have matching cotton T-shirts made, for you and your spouse. There are a number of online vendors where you can upload digital artwork and make and order just one (or more) cotton T-shirts at a time.

Homemade

If you want to make something for your spouse, make a gift from cotton. This might be a homemade quilt, cotton throw, whimsical stuffed animal or scarf. If you knit or crochet, make something from cotton yarn, such as an afghan or sweater.
