Nine years is a huge achievement and something to celebrate for any marriage. It’s almost a decade since your wedding day and buying a 9th wedding anniversary gift to mark the occasion should be number one on your priority list.
If traditional gifts aren’t your preferred choice, then leather is the modern version of what is given for a 9th wedding anniversary. Leather is also strong and durable, just as the last nine years of your marriage have shown your love for each other is. Being available in a myriad of different forms, you’ll definitely be able to find something to suit either partner.
If your wife loves to receive flowers, the type that is associated with the 9th wedding anniversary is poppies. Different colors that are bright and vibrant, as well as rich allow poppies to make a huge difference to a room or a garden. They are strong and beautiful, just like your love for your wife or husband is, and are the ideal way of showing your true love for each other.
If you prefer gemstones, then the types that are associated with the 9th year anniversary include Lapis Lazuli and Tiger’s Eye. Both aren’t as commonly known but both are just as beautiful as each other. Tiger’s Eye is a member of the quartz group of metamorphic rock, and has a stunning brown, orange and red color to it. It’s perfect for jewelry or even just as an ornament itself. Lapis Lazuli is a little different, mainly due to its formation in Siberia and its shocking blue color that comes with it. It’s a rare stone, similar to your love for your wife or husband, and is mesmerizing to look at.
