Thanks to your wedding registry, you received everything from kitchen gadgets to honeymoon experiences. Your first anniversary likely included champagne and bites of that top cake layer—maybe even the classic, paper, with personalized stationery. So by the time you reach your second anniversary, you’re stumped. How exactly do you celebrate such an important event in a way that feels fresh and new?

With this gift guide, you’ll find plenty of unique presents that say “I love you more with each year.” The traditional gift for this anniversary is cotton—think luxe bedding, lightweight PJs and other soft items to make your life together even cozier than it already is. The modern gift tradition for this anniversary is china, and it's a perfect opportunity to update or add to your entertaining collection. If you're already covered in those categories, break out of the box something unexpected like a snazzy tech item or a sexy fragrance. Another option is to go super personalized and find something that reflects you and your partner's life together. Whatever you end up choosing, make it extra special with a thoughtful note and a romantic date night together.

Here, the best 2nd anniversary presents to woo your spouse all over again.
