The best way to commemorate the occasion is by choosing gifts that symbolize the nine years you’ve spent together.
Traditional standards mark the ninth year as the willow or pottery anniversary, while modern lists regard leather as the representation of divine happiness.
No matter which material you use to express your undying devotion, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best gift ideas for the ninth anniversary.
What Is the 9-Year Anniversary Gift?
The materials in both the modern and traditional 9th anniversary gift lists represent desirable attributes found in every good marriage.
Traditionally, pottery uses elements of nature and simplicity to suggest these same qualities in building a healthy relationship. Willow also uses natural elements but ties in the idea of flexibility and compromise that make a marriage truly cohesive.
On the modern gift theme, leather exhibits a sense of warmth and comfort. It also alludes to durability in terms of strength and withstanding the odds.
Other elements that make up the iconic gifts for anniversaries by year are gemstones and flowers.
The ninth year is depicted by the gem lapis lazuli, which symbolizes wisdom and truth. In a similar vein, noting characteristics of faithfulness and thoughtfulness are the Bird of Paradise flowers.
With such wonderful images and concepts to represent the love and growth in nine years of marriage, it’s easy to see how these materials have quickly climbed the ranks.
