LACE - 13th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas
(or Fur, Fabrics, Citrine & Moonstone Gemstone)



Lace is the theme for the 13th wedding anniversary gift and has been for a very long time indeed. The delicately woven intricacies of sewing lace patterns speaks of the patience and care needed to foster a relationship of 13 years. The balance of the pattern scattered with tiny holes make each piece of lace, a work of art. Remember, what makes a donut? Why the hole of course. Otherwise it’s just a bit of fried bread.

Originally in use by Catholic clergy the production of lace became popular in the 16th century and has been used both in clothing as well as decorative cloth covers. This naturally made lace a perfect present as it also represented a gift of labour, or a labour of love. What better statement for 13th wedding anniversary gifts?

The days of wives putting the doilies on their sofas is largely gone the way of Blanch DuBois, but the idea of buying lace lingerie for a 13th anniversary gift, is enough to get most husbands’ eyes moistening with wistful thoughts of honeymoon nights.

Strangely, it has a similar effect with wives as well. Isn’t love wonderful? A shopping item that both husband and wife can shop together for, a labour of love for both parties. Lace really is appropriate.

The other alternatives for 13th wedding anniversary gift ideas are furs, fabric and textiles. These days, animal activist groups like PETA are loudly discouraging the use of furs and fair enough too. As my militant animal activist husband says `the best place for an animal’s fur is on the animal’s back.’
