Bronze is one of the traditional gift options for an eight-year wedding anniversary. Why? It’s produced by combining copper and tin to form a stronger metal — kind of like two individuals joining, in marriage, to form stronger versions of themselves. Are you misty-eyed yet?
These bronze chimes from Woodstock not only hit the mark for a traditional gift — but they produce beautiful music (like you and your partner!), too. Incorporating four smaller rods that harmonize with six chime tubes, this set of chimes is meant to recall the melody of Johann Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major. They’re made of ash wood and bronzed aluminum tubes, so they’ll stand up to weather if you choose to use them outdoors.
Real-life reviewers love these wind chimes for their excellent construction and beautiful sound — one reviewer wrote that she purchased several sets, so she could hang them all over her house!
Linen, one of the modern gift options for an eight-year wedding anniversary, isn’t just for beachy getaways or men’s shirts — it makes cool, comfortable and ultra-durable bedding, too. These 100% linen sheets from Simple & Opulence are produced using high-quality flax fiber from Belgium, and have naturally occurring antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Although linen makes an excellent insulator, it’s cool and dry to the touch — so you’ll stay warm in the winter and comfortable in hotter weather. Plus, it can be machine washed, doesn’t require ironing and won’t pill.
Available in seven different colors and a range of sizes — from twin to king — you can choose the perfect sheets to cuddle up with your boo. The best part of this gift? You’ll reap the benefits of comfortable, new bedding, too!
