Ringing in another year of wedded bliss is definitely something to celebrate. As you reflect on another milestone you and your spouse made as a couple, it’s fun to keep the tradition alive with the common traditional and modern anniversary gift themes. 

9th Anniversary

Traditional: Willow/Pottery
Potted plants add some much-needed green to any interior space and can be a chic gift that lasts a long time. With Willow collectables and more handmade pottery, the traditional 9th anniversary gift is as solid as your marriage.

  • Succulents are some of the longest-lasting plants; pick up some succulent planters to display these beautiful plants.
  • Take your greenery to the walls; a set of animal wall planters holds some nice flowers and adds to wall décor.
  • Add to your Christmas tree with a willow tree ornament to commemorate the milestone.
  • Handmade pottery bowls are unique and versatile; personalize them with a sweet message inscribed on the bottom.
  • A personalized willow tree figurine will forever remind your partner of your nine wonderful years of marriage.
