Readers have shared successful gift suggestions and ideas for how to make your eighth anniversary an anniversary to remember throughout your marriage. Traditional gifts are pottery and bronze, while more modern gifts often include lace and linen.

Paint Your Own Pottery

Since pottery is one of the traditional gifts suggested, we went to a local pain your own ceramics place. It was a lot of fun. I painted a lion for our youngest child, and my husband surprised me by picking a plate, and hand stenciling the word "Family" and painting five sets of feet (us, our kids, and our pooch).

Gift "basket"

Put some treats or other small items in a bronze or pottery bowl as a gift basket.

Color-Me-Mine

An idea for this one is to go to a Color-Me-Mine location where you get to pick, paint and decorate your own pottery.

Bronze Shoes

With the help of my mom and my mother-in-law, I was able to locate a pair of baby shoes for each of us. I had them bronzed and put in a nice shadow box. My wife was thrilled with the gift.
