How to make pottery romantic? Try ceramic flowers or a personalized vase with fresh flowers. Or get a whimsical willow woven picnic basket and surprise your spouse with a private picnic in the woods (don't forget the bug spray!).
The 9th anniversary is also a great opportunity to purchase a gift together for your home, such as an artisan pottery vase. When you view your vase in future years, you will fondly recall your young family.
If you wish to give
a gift of willow, seek out a local woodcarver craftsman and have
him or her make a willow rocking chair, footstool or corner table. A vase with a pussywillow arrangement would utilize both the pottery and willow materials. A picture of willow trees would also match this material. Or plant a willow tree as a family in the backyard!
Leather is another great alternative where there are tons of possibilities. Visit our third anniversary page for a detailed list of leather gift ideas.
Lapis Lazuli and Amethyst are the alternate modern jewelry materials for the 9th anniversary.
