The 8th Anniversary Gift Guide: Bronze

Year after year, millions of couples around the world celebrate a wedding anniversary. Unlike birthdays or Valentine’s Day, a wedding anniversary gift has to be memorable and distinctive; sometimes a bouquet of flowers is simply not enough. Thanks to a tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages, we have a helpful guideline to help us choose that exceptional gift that commemorates each year of marriage. The first year is paper, the second year cotton, five years wood and the eighth is bronze. Some years the gift choice maybe easy, but others can leave us clueless. No need to resort to the ho-hum bouquet, we’ve found many striking gifts to celebrate your 8th wedding anniversary.

One of the oldest and most durable materials in the world, bronze represents strength and fortitude to many people. A peek into the history of cultures around the world reveals the Bronze Age as a significant period of development and often the start of its urban civilization. Used for advances in technology and trade networks, bronze has always been a valuable and trusted material.

Today, bronze is commonly used in the creation of home d├ęcor objects, jewelry and fine art sculpture. For the 8th Wedding Anniversary Gift Guide, Pure Sculpture is thinking outside the box and has scouted the web in search of the most beautiful and thoughtful bronze gifts on the market. Get ready to wow your spouse without breaking the bank!
