Here are a few fun gift ideas with cotton. This is the traditional choice for the 2nd Wedding Anniversary but it need not be boring. Think beyond cotton T towels and T shirts. How about?

Modern China

There are so many gift items to choose made of china, there is of course dinner sets and figurines or beautiful tea pots and cups and saucers than many people collect, however these can be expensive. The first thing that sprang to my mind about china was the song 'Little China Girl' by David Bowie and you could purchase a copy quite cheaply or even consider looking for it on vinyl. But here are a few more ideas,

  • A china doll
  • Dinner at a Chinese Restaurant
  • Host a dinner party with a China theme
  • Painted paper fan from China
  • Chinese porcelain spoon set
  • Chinese Foo Dog or Dragon figurine
  • Coffee table book about China
  • Symbol of Yin Yang as a framed print
  • Chinese Lanterns
  • A china piggy bank
  • Chopsticks
  • A game of Chinese Checkers

These ideas should inspire your own imagination. Don't forget to share any ideas in my comment box.
