The traditional wedding gift for an eighth wedding anniversary is either bronze or pottery. Bronze represents durability and pottery represents simplicity. Both these gifts are appropriate and practical for a marriage that has lasted for eight years.
Suggestions of gifts using the bronze theme include bronze lamps, picture frames, home decor or jewelry. Pottery options are such items as bowls, cups or other home decor pieces. For those who want to be traditional but do a little more, a ceramic bowl or mug is a great place to hide a piece of jewelry or tickets to a romantic getaway destination.
