8th Anniversary Ideas & Gifts
By: Amy Cunningham
You made it through the seven year itch and are celebrating your 8th anniversary! Now it's time to find a unique and romantic anniversary gift. The traditional 8th anniversary gifts are bronze or pottery and the modern 8th anniversary gifts are linens or lace. While both may require a little extra creativity, we've got some romantic gift idea to help you out.
