Without further ado, here is a list of the 10 best 2nd wedding anniversary gift ideas she is sure to love and appreciate!
Wedding anniversary gifts for your husband
I have decided to start this 2nd wedding anniversary gift list with the men in your life. Let’s be honest, it’s usually the gals who get treated on this day, but it is clearly for both.
So we did lots of research to come with some great and practical anniversary gifts for him.

A gift you certainly can’t go wrong with is the organic cotton robe. We recommend the Etsy ones, which you know are handmade, quality items, rather than the high street products.

I may be biased but I strongly believe an anniversary photoshoot is a gift she will absolutely love each year. Not only that, but it’s a tradition you and your children will cherish even more years down the line.
It’s such a joy when couples reach out for an anniversary photoshoot in the Cotswolds. Being based here, we constantly discover so many gems in the Cotswolds area!
An anniversary or engagement shoot with us starts from £350.
What you get in return is a wonderful experience and beautiful photographs of your love together. And that is priceless as time flies…
Book an anniversary trip (to the Cotswolds)
If you’re considering coming to the Cotswolds for your anniversary photoshoot, why don’t you plan a getaway? A Cotswolds trip for your 2nd wedding anniversary gift is a fantastic idea!

Hammock anniversary gift
This could possibly be my absolute favorite wedding anniversary gift. Especially if you live somewhere with a garden, this one will certainly make your wife very happy. Once you stayed in a hammock, you know you need one for your home. It’s such a wonderful gift for any occasion, to be honest!

Cotton scented candle
Maybe your budget is slightly tight on this occasion (and that’s absolutely fine, don’t worry). In this case, I would suggest a cotton scented candle for your 2nd wedding anniversary gift.
It shows that you have definitely made an effort and it’s also extremely romantic. So pair it with a fun movie night with snacks and you have yourself a wonderful and thoughtful wedding anniversary activity.
Ceramics / China
I could not end this list without showing you some ceramics you could get instead of cotton-made gifts.
Needless to say, ceramics are always a great idea and you can never have enough. Etsy is a fantastic place to find handmade, beautiful ceramics for a gift.
The only issue here would be to stick with only one!
Real cotton stems
If you really want to make an impression and show how much this really means to you, add some real cotton stems to any of the wedding anniversary gifts from above. It is the most literal 2nd wedding anniversary gift idea, to get some actual cotton to put in a vase.
I hope it is very obvious that a wedding anniversary needs to also come with a thoughtful card and chocolate, right? Ok, good. Just thought I’d mention anyway.
And if ALLL else fails…..
Happy second wedding anniversary!
