Can you believe that your wedding was almost a decade ago?! While it may seem like just yesterday that you were walking down the aisle, the memories and experiences that you and your spouse have shared over the past nine years can feel like a lifetime. There’s no doubt that your 9th anniversary is something to celebrate, which is why we have rounded up the best gifts that fit within the traditional and modern guidelines.
Traditional ninth anniversary gifts are pottery and willow wood. Pottery represents a simple natural element (clay) that’s been transformed over time (with lots of TLC) into a beautifully finished piece. You might have not heard of the term “willow wood” before, but you’ll be delighted to learn that it is a type of material used to make wicker and rattan goods. It’s both strong and flexible, just like your union. You can also opt for the modern ninth anniversary gift of leather, which represents durability, flexibility, and warmth—and is a gift that just gets better with time.
