As you consider all the ways to celebrate eight incredible years—maybe you'll plan a vow renewal!—consider expressing those heartfelt sentiments with a traditional gift. If you've done any eight-year-anniversary gift searches, you've probably discovered that the classic gift medium of choice is pottery.

We also kept your hobbies in mind when putting together this gift guide. Whether she's a gardener (we found the coolest planters) or he's a music buff (check out the ceramic guitar picks), we think there's a gift here for every spouse. Not seeing anything that resonates? No worries—we've included a company that will 3D-print virtually any object you can think of in a ceramic material. How's that for creative?
