Gift materials associated with ninth wedding anniversaries include willow, wicker, pottery and leather. Traditional gift lists name willow, wicker and pottery, while leather is a modern choice. Ideas for gifts between spouses or from others include patio furniture, picnic baskets, leather jackets or luggage, vases and candle holders.
An anniversary flower gift list suggests bird of paradise flowers for ninth anniversaries. A gemstone list suggests lapis lazuli gifts.
Prior to 1937, anniversaries with traditional gift types included only the first and those for every year of marriage ending in five or zero through the 25th, the 50th and the 75th. A retail jewelers association then supplied the remaining gift ideas for anniversaries up to and including the 25th and for every additional five-year anniversary.
