Here’s to celebrating eight years of marriage! This important milestone deserves to be recognized with a thoughtful gift, but where to start? There are plenty of general wedding anniversary gift options, but if you want to go the traditional route, find a gift synonymous with the 8th anniversary’s gift themes: bronze and pottery.

Bronze is chosen to represent beauty and durability—two concepts very important to a marriage as bronze remains beautiful and resilient from any weathered storms. Pottery, on the other hand, is symbolic of nature and simplicity. But listen, if you’re not exactly adept at throwing clay on the pottery wheel, don’t sweat it. Check out these ideas for a meaningful 8th-anniversary gift, minus the kiln.

1. For the cook: This 8-in-1 pan

If they live for vintage aesthetics and can be found turning out fruit tarts on the weekends, then this Fully Baked Bakeware Set from Great Jones is for them. We found that it’s great for sweet and savory baked goods, plus there’s no icky residue left behind post-bake (like your average bakeware) due to everything being totally non-stick.

If like me, they’re always buying new plants and running out of planters to repot them into, this set of three Ceramic Planters would be a perfect 8th-anniversary gift. While the pots are 100% ceramic, they’re actually made to be 50% lighter than the alternative planter, which makes repositioning and carrying super easy. Their versatile design makes them perfect for any decor setting, too.
