For an anniversary gift for your ninth anniversary, we take a trip back in time to anniversary number eight. Yes, one of the gift ideas from that anniversary makes a return engagement, except in this case, it is the only choice you have. So we’re going to have to really dive into this one in depth if you’re going to come away with something that you’ll be proud to give to your spouse for this special day.
The return gift for this year is something made out of bronze. Originally one of two traditional gifts for anniversary number eight, it is now your only option this year. So if you sprung for a bronze made gift eleven years ago, then you’re going to have to dig really hard to come up with something different this year. Do not worry, we have you covered.
Before we get into this, there is one thing you better know right up front. A nice bronze oriented gift is going to cost a lot of money, especially if you go for one of the more popular bronze gift ideas, the bronze statue.
There are more bronze statues than you can possibly imagine. Many of these are designed after very old or even ancient themes. For example, you can get a bronze Feng Shui statue for about $ 1,000. No, that’s not a typo. Of course, if you want, you can get what they call a faux bronze statue. This is a statue that is made out of cold cast resin. Technically, it’s probably not a real bronze gift, but if you can not afford the real thing and want to get your spouse something close, this is as close as you’re going to get.
Most bronze statues are custom made. At least the really good ones are. Yes, if you want, you can head on down to the local gift shop and pick up something for twenty bucks, but it’s not going to have the same effect. And after nineteen years of marriage, your spouse describes something a lot better.
Of course, if you think the Feng Shui statue was a lot of money, you might cringe at the thought of getting your spouse a Celadon Prunus Vase. This is one absolutely gorgeous piece. It also comes with a price tag of about $ 2,400. Or you might want to go with a White Dragon incense burner. You’re going to have to get a price quote for one of these things.
You might want to go with a simple bronze dish and lid with a geometric pattern. You can practically steal one of these for about $ 1,900. Or you might want to go with a simple bronze dish that you can have made with a design of your choice. This will only set you back about $ 500.
Who said that anniversary gifts were not expensive, did not make it to anniversary number nineteen. But, with a little thought and open mind and a credit card that is not yet maxed out, you can actually pick up a gift that will not break you and make your spouse one very happy married person.
