Traditionally, cotton is the gift of choice for a second wedding anniversary in the US. Interestingly, in the UK, cotton is the first year wedding anniversary gift, so the two countries have the gift suggestion of first and second year flip-flopped. The Chicago Public Library also helpfully establish another second anniversary gift suggestion–china. So with cotton and china as options, your selections of gift greatly increased.

I searched high and low for some awesome second anniversary gift ideas for you to celebrate your momentous event.
