What Is the Traditional 9th Anniversary Gift?

The traditional ninth anniversary gift is pottery. Tough enough to be a part of everyday life but fragile enough to treat with care, pottery represents the dedication required to maintain a loving marriage.

Willow is considered an alternative traditional gift for the ninth anniversary. Because willow is such a specific material, the gift options for this theme are mainly limited to basketry and wickerwork products. For this reason, we recommend choosing pottery as your traditional ninth anniversary gift theme.

What Is the 9th Anniversary Gemstone?

A universal symbol of wisdom and truth, lapis lazuli is the gemstone for the ninth anniversary. Considered a “celestial” stone, lapis lazuli is composed of a deep blue lazurite, white calcite, and golden flecks of pyrite that give it a cosmic appearance. Said to promote self-reflection and inner-peace, lapis lazuli symbolizes the honesty and compassion at the core of your marriage.

While jewelry is always an excellent anniversary gift, you can also surprise and delight your spouse with a gift of lapis lazuli jewelry given on any special occasion during your ninth year of marriage.
