The eight wedding anniversary celebrates the strength of marriage so far. Bronze is the traditional gift idea for eight anniversaries because it is the combination of two weaker metals, tin and copper, to create a really strong alloy. Much like the union of a man and woman, creating a partnership that acts as one.

The other traditional gift for eight years of marriage is pottery, because what was once a small lump of clay has turned into a wonderful piece of art. It is like the couple who shapes the marriage into a beautiful thing through eight years. If you are looking fro more in depth ideas for bronze gifts, you can look at these bronze wedding anniversary gifts for him and for her.

Modern themes include linen and laces. This gives you a fall back if you do not like bronze or pottery. Also, you are free to give non-themed gifts.

We have some eighth wedding anniversary gifts. Check these out!
