8th Anniversary Ideas

Amy Cunningham

You made it through the seven year itch and are celebrating your 8th anniversary! Now it's time to find a unique and romantic anniversary gift. The traditional 8th anniversary gifts are bronze or pottery and the modern 8th anniversary gifts are linens or lace. While both may require a little extra creativity, we've got some romantic gift idea to help you out.

Traditional Gift: Bronze/Pottery

  • Send her a bouquet of beautiful bronze roses.
  • Send her a bouquet of beautiful pottery roses.
  • Get a set of matching pottery coffee mugs and promise to sit and share a moment each morning together while using your mugs.
  • Get a beautiful pottery vase and fill it with roses.
  • Personalized clay ornaments engraved with your anniversary for your Christmas tree.
  • Surprise her with a bronze sculpture for her garden.
  • A new set of mugs with the promise of morning coffee/tea together every day.
  • Take a tropical vacation together where you can relax on the beach and bronze yourselves.
  • Take a pottery making class together. You'll have a great time together while learning something new.

Modern Gift: Linen/Lace

  • Get a gorgeous tablecloth and pair it with a romantic candlelit dinner.
  • Surprise him with sexy, lacy lingerie.
  • Surprise her with new bed linens (silk or satin works well).

Romantic Ideas

  • Relive the past, watch your wedding video again, look at your wedding album together, and reflect on the last year.
  • Vacations are normally 7 days long. Break tradition and take an 8 day honeymoon together.
  • Give her 8 single roses (or whatever flower you used in your wedding) to celebrate 8 years.
  • Match the number of gifts to your anniversary: Give him/her 8 small gifts for the eighth anniversary.
  • Create an anniversary time capsule!
