8th Wedding Anniversary
Congratulations on your 8th anniversary! You may think this is not a special anniversary because it is not your 5th or 10th anniversaries, however view it in this light...
The number eight is considered particularly auspicious in Chinese culture because it sounds similar to the word for 'prosper' or 'wealth'. It is pronounced like "bah" in Mandarin (pinyin: bā).
We also like the visual aspect of the 8th anniversary because it is similar to the infinity symbol which is a happy thing to associate with the connection you have with your husband or wife.
So from all of us here at happy-anniversary.com, may your marriage be bountiful with infinite blessings and joy!
The traditional material of bronze is such a beautiful color and texture to have displayed in the home so take this opportunity on your eighth anniversary to find a decorative item you both like.
And if bronze does not appeal to you, the other traditional material of pottery is another great decorating item because you can choose whatever style and color best fits your home. If your wife or husband has a creative streak, consider finding a local pottery school and buying them lessons.
If you are looking for something specifically for your husband, and the materials or bronze or pottery do not match his personality, you can take the other modern material appliance and give him a "boy's gadget" type of gift or something for around the home or for one of his hobbies.
If you would like to get your wife jewelry but cannot find bronze styles that would suit her, you may also consider copper since bronze is essentially an alloy of copper and tin. If you want to move away from the traditional material of bronze altogether but like the color, you could substitute gemstones such as amber, smoky quartz, yellow sapphire, tiger eye, or citrine. Another possibility is to include the infinity symbol in the jewelry you choose.
The romantic wood statuettes to the left shaped like the number 8 would also work very well for this anniversary year.
Tourmaline and Tanzanite are the alternate modern jewelry materials for the 8th anniversary.

My wife and I brought back a bronze reclining buddha from Thailand and then I set up some soft feature lighting in the living room so that we could enjoy it in the evenings.
