9th Anniversary Ideas

Amy Cunningham

The traditional 9th anniversary gift idea is pottery, an elegant and easy to find gift item. You could go casual with a pottery pot containing a romantic rose bush or elegant with a pottery vase containing a single red rose. Want to have a little fun with this anniversary, try out a modern 9th anniversary gift of leather, an elegant, sexy, and sometimes kinky ;) material. Read on for creative and romantic 9th anniversary gifts.

Traditional Gift: Pottery/Willow/Wicker

  • 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.
  • Take a pottery making class together. You'll have a great time together while learning something new.
  • Give her a willow tree angel figurine.
  • Plant a weeping willow tree and watch it grow over the years, just like your love for each other.
  • A wicker picnic basket and an anniversary picnic date.
  • A wicker picnic basket filled with all of your partner's favorite treats.
  • Wicker furniture or even a wicker swing for your porch, patio, or deck. You'll enjoy many moments together using these over the years.

Modern Gift: Leather

  • Send her a bouquet of beautiful leather roses.
  • Give him a sexy leather jacket.

  • Give him an engraved leather travel kit.
  • A leather belt
  • A leather briefcase
