Traditional gifts fit for a ‘duchess’

Tying the Knot

“Creating personalised items offers a unique approach, and with many people favouring off-the-shelf presents, the traditional element of cotton provides countless gift ideas. Plus those without a Royal budget might find this much more feasible!

Find out what type of Royal wedding anniversary gift ideas would best celebrate the two-year mark with a little help from the UK’s premier wedding planners, Tying the Knot.

On Friday 29 April 2011, Prince William married his childhood sweetheart, Kate Middleton, in the fairytale wedding of the year. With her dress handmade especially by one of the world’s leading designers, Alexander McQueen, coverage of the event was watched by millions across the globe – noting every detail right from Kate’s tiara to her wedding bouquet.

Tying the Knot’s Simon Barwell commented: “As a trusted source of all things wedding, we’ve been there every step of the way – from planning the event right through to post-marriage celebrations. Quite regularly we’ll be asked for typical wedding anniversary ideas, whether it’s modern or traditional gift suggestions to symbols and ideas for celebrating the special date.”

For second year wedding anniversaries, the traditional gift is cotton – but a contemporary (and slightly more luxurious) present is china. However, for those worrying about handing over cotton buds as a potential present, gifts can come in the form of crisp cotton placements or decorative cotton bedroom pillows. But for those leaning towards china, tableware or even jewellery is often well-received.

“Nowadays people are becoming a lot more imaginative, even going back to basics by making their own presents,” explained Barwell.

“Creating personalised items offers a unique approach, and with many people favouring off-the-shelf presents, the traditional element of cotton provides countless gift ideas. Plus those without a Royal budget might find this much more feasible!”

Presents could also be designed around the location of the Royal wedding, Westminster Abbey. Or for marriages that took place in UK wedding venues, many can borrow inspiration from notable landmarks nearby – so for weddings in Newcastle, there’s the famous Angel of the North and for marriages in Edinburgh, the historic Arthur’s Seat.

Whether the present is bought or made from scratch, get inspired by the following locations for anniversary gifts with Tying the Knot wedding venues: Yorkshire, Manchester, Birmingham or Glasgow.
