Congratulations on your 8th anniversary! You may think this is not a special anniversary because it is not your 5th or 10th anniversary, however view it in this light...

The number eight is considered particularly auspicious in Chinese culture because it sounds similar to the word for 'prosper' or 'wealth'. It is pronounced like "bah" in Mandarin (pinyin: bā).

infinityWe also like the visual aspect of the 8th anniversary because it is similar to the infinity symbol which is a happy thing to associate with the connection you have with your husband or wife.

So from all of us here at, may your marriage be bountiful with infinite blessings and joy!

The traditional material of bronze is such a beautiful color and texture to have displayed in the home so take this opportunity on your eighth anniversary to find bronze home decor you both love. Bronze jewelry would also be a perfect gift for your wife and probably something she does not already have in her jewelry box.

If bronze does not appeal to you, the other traditional material of pottery (or ceramic) is another easy decorating item because you can choose whatever style and color best fits your home. If your wife or husband has a creative streak, consider finding a local pottery school and buying them lessons.

If you are looking for something specifically for your husband, and the materials of bronze and pottery do not match his personality, you can use the other modern material appliance and give him a cool boy's gadget type of gift, tools for around the home, or gear for one of his hobbies.

The romantic wood statuettes to the right are shaped like the number 8 and would also work very well for this anniversary year. Or these lovely personalized prints: infinity love or rings of love. Another possibility is to go for the shape of the infinity symbol as jewelry.

Linens are the alternate modern material. This provides a good range of practical gifts for the home. Donate your old sheets to an animal or homeless shelter and update your thread count. Throw pillows, tablecloths, tea towels, curtains, or pretty much anything of that nature would also apply.

Tourmaline and Tanzanite are the alternate modern jewelry materials for the 8th anniversary. If you would like to give your wife jewelry but cannot find bronze styles that suit, tourmaline or tanzanite may be the answer, especially if your wife likes to wear purple.

My wife and I brought back a bronze reclining buddha from Thailand and then I set up some soft feature lighting in the living room so that we could enjoy it in the evenings.
