Buying the perfect anniversary gift for her can be a challenge! Less significant years like the 2nd anniversary can be particularly challenging. Whether you want to go with a traditional 2nd-anniversary gift of cotton, a modern 2nd-anniversary gift of China, or something completely different, this list will give you plenty of good gift ideas.
2nd Year Anniversary Gifts For Her
A Beautiful Tea Set: Fuloon Chinese Kungfu Tea Set
While this tea set is technically ceramic rather than china, it’s close enough to the modern 2nd-anniversary gift category. It’s also just a lovely and thoughtful gift. You get 1 teapot, 4 teacups, a tea tray, a tea clip, a tea canister, a towel, and a lovely travel bag to store it all.
The ceramic is a pretty shade of jade green. The tea canister and the teapot have a Chinese symbol of some kind on the front. This most likely means tea or something of that sort, but you could probably get away with telling your sweetheart that it means something romantic. Overall, this is a very attractive set with high-quality craftsmanship. If she’s a tea drinker, this gift will be well-received.
A Unique & Romantic Take on Tradition: Personalized 2nd Cotton Anniversary Gift
The traditional anniversary gift for Year 2 is cotton which is not exactly the most exciting or romantic gift category. This personalized gift lets you give that traditional cotton but in a really sweet and special way. You provide some text such as the lyrics to your first dance song, your wedding vows, or anything else special to you.
This is then printed on some high-quality cream cotton fabric, in the shape of a heart. Below the heart, your names and wedding date will be printed. This gift comes unframed but when you put it in a frame, it becomes a really special and romantic gift. It will look great on your wall for many years to come.
Jewelry is Always Classic: 10k White Gold 7x7mm Stud Earrings With Garnet Stone
When buying an anniversary gift for her, you can never really go wrong with jewelry. To show how thoughtful you are, why not buy jewelry with garnet? This is the traditional gemstone for a 2nd anniversary.
Unless you know she hates garnet, this gift shows you are making an effort to give a special gift. These earrings are beautifully made and they are certified authentic. The garnet really pops against the white gold. The earrings come in a reasonably attractive gift box with a gift bag. As a gift to yourself and your own peace of mind, these earrings are covered under a Lifetime Warranty.
A Place to Sit: Mid Century Modern Style Chair
Is furniture a romantic gift? It can be! If you know that she swoons over Mid-Century Modern decor, she’ll probably love this chair. As you celebrate two years together, you’re probably at a place where you’re working to add more special touches to your home. Every woman needs a special chair to call her own and this chair is perfect for a reading nook or a cozy corner in the bedroom.
The grey is classy and will fit into just about any style. This chair is extremely durable and will hold up well over time. It does require a very small amount of installation (basically just screwing on the wooden legs) so be prepared to do a little bit of work before presenting this gift.
For a Romantic Picnic: 4-Person Picnic Backpack With Utensils & Accessories
There’s just something about a picnic when it comes to romance. Giving an incredible picnic set as a gift relies on that same romance factor. Of course, what will really make this gift special is the promise to actually go on a few picnics with her! Better yet, you could plan a picnic for that very day shortly after you give her the gift.
This picnic set really has everything you could possibly need and more for that perfect picnic experience. It includes 4 cloth napkins, 4 sets of solid stainless steel utensils, 4 plastic wine glasses, 4 9″ dinner plates, a set of salt and pepper shakers, a bottle opener with corkscrew, a bamboo cutting board, and a large water-resistant fleece blanket. It all fits beautifully into an attractive and high-quality backpack. The backpack even has a special insulated wine holder.
A Cute Ring Holder: Creative Co-Op Ceramic Bunny Rabbit Ring Holder
There are a number of reasons why she might want or need to take her rings off sometimes. Why not give her something that will hold her rings in an adorable way? This cute ceramic rabbit couple has ears that are eager to keep those precious rings safe.
The ears are long and slim so they’ll have no problem holding even the smallest size rings. The simple white coloring will look great on a bedside table or the top of a dresser or on the bathroom counter. The loving rabbit couple will look lovely even when they aren’t holding any rings.
Sheets That Celebrate Your Relationship: Bed Hog 4-Piece 300-Thread-Count His & Hers Sheet Set
Cotton may not sound like the sexiest possible gift but the sexy factor is definitely upped when the cotton is in the form of bedsheets. This set also offers a nice touch of romance with the design. The bedsheets and pillowcases have contrasting His and Hers designs.
On her side, the script is elegant and flowing. On your side, the text is more masculine. These sheets are soft and luxurious. High-quality cotton in a single pick sateen weave along with the high thread count gives you heavenly softness. If either of you is known for hogging the sheets, you’ll like the feature where the flat sheet has an attached cuff makes bed-hogging nearly impossible. This set includes 1 flat sheet, 1 fitted sheet, and 2 pillowcases.
A Fun, Versatile, & Comfy Place to Chill: Chillbo Baggins Inflatable Lounger Hammock Air Sofa and Pool Float

This gift fits the bill as a fun and unexpected gift she’ll love. This is a unique and versatile product that can be used as just a comfy place to hang out, like when camping or chilling at a park or even the backyard.
It can also be used as a pool float or even a hammock. If you hate blowing up pool floats, you’ll love this unique inflatable. You just scoop up some air and suddenly, it’s inflated!
That sounds impossible but it really works. There are large side pockets that can hold things like books or beverages.

Hopefully, you know her well enough by now to pick one she’ll like. To make this gift even better, consider planning an adventure where this will come in handy.
Keep Her Warm While Looking Cute: Splendid Women’s Thermal Wrap Hooded Cardigan Sweater
Women understand the power of layering. It can be fashionable but more importantly, it gives you some control over temperature modulation.
If she’s often cold, any kind of top layer fashion is a good gift idea. This cardigan has a classy design. It technically has a hood but it’s an extremely elegant take on the hoodie. It’s quite soft with its makeup of 48% Pima Cotton/48% Modal/4% Spandex.
The long-sleeve cardigan is just warm enough that it’s the perfect layering piece. It comes in three classic colors (black, gray, cream) all of which are good neutral shades that will work with almost anything else in her closet. It fits true to size but in case you get it wrong, there are free returns so she can get it in the right size for her. Splendid is the brand name but this cardigan sweater really is splendid!
Diamonds Plus the Traditional 2nd-Year Gemstone: Sterling Silver Trillion-Cut Gemstone and Diamond Accent Pendant Necklace
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. This necklace features diamond accents around a trillion-cut gemstone pendant.

With sterling silver, yellow gold, diamonds, and a garnet gemstone, there is a mix of materials used in this necklace but they work together beautifully. This has an 18-inch box chain.
