traditional 8th anniversary gift: pottery

modern 8th anniversary gift: linens

Happy Infinity Anniversary! Yep, just turn the number eight on its side and you have the infinity sign or, in this case, a symbol of forever love. Kinda makes year 8 feel even more special, doesn’t it? As it should.

The number eight also represents balance because of its shape. And we all know that marriage is a balancing act every day of wants, needs, priorities, schedules…you name it. So eight years of maintaining a healthy balance with your forever love is really an amazing accomplishment.

The traditional 8th anniversary gift gift for this anniversary is pottery which takes time, patience, and care to mold into a beautiful a work of art. (Hey, that sounds like marriage, too!) And the modern gift of linens adds a personal and romantic touch to the celebration. So, overall, eight is a very special anniversary with lots of super-cool gift ideas…from infinity-shaped jewelry to handcrafted pottery to luxurious bedding. Or you can just keep it simple and fill a vase with this year’s very fragrant flower, the gorgeous lilac, and love will certainly be in the air.
