Second Anniversary Gifts Cotton Bedding

Why not buy cotton bedding? Look out for Egyptian cotton. Usually a little more expensive than the normal sets. When purchasing Egyptian cotton bedding look for the cotton count on the label. The higher the count, the finer the cotton. Notice the difference when you climb into bed. The cotton will feel soft and warm to the touch.

Cotton Paper

You will also be able to find paper that has been made from Cotton. Having it personalized with the family crest and/or name would make it a more personal gift.

Cotton Clothing

There are many cotton items that would make ideal second anniversary gifts. Look out for 100% cotton clothing. Ideal in hot weather (or for a holiday). You could give a nice pair of cuff links or tie pin with a good quality shirt. With a blouse you could attach an attractive brooch. Why not have a piece of clothing monogrammed? Or a T-shirt printed with a special message.

Information About Cotton

Cotton comes from the cotton plant. It is a soft fiber that grows around the seeds. The cotton plant is a shrub native to the tropical and subtropical regions of both Asia and the American continents. The fiber is often spun into thread and used to make a soft, breathable fabric. Cotton is the most widely used natural-fiber cloth in clothing today.

Cotton has been used to make very fine lightweight material in areas with tropical climates for thousands of years. It is possible that it was being used as early as 12,000 BC by the Egyptians. Egyptian cotton is considered to be one of the finest types of cotton.

Evidence has been found of cotton in Mexican caves which dates back to approximately 7,000 years ago. There is clear archaeological evidence that people in South America and India domesticated different species of cotton independently thousands of years ago.
