My gift basket consisted of cotton candy, two clamps, a cotton t-shirt, a black tie, Q-tips, personalized whiskey glasses, and cotton balls.
I typed up and printed out the letters to spell out C-O-T-T-O-N along with what gift matched that letter and a saying to go with it. I also typed up a short note about how long we've been married and how much I love my husband and attached it to the gift basket. I used a hole punch and some string to hang my cotton notes above the gifts. You can hang them like I did, tape them to the front of the basket or tape them to the item they go with.
Before you start shopping for items to put in your Cotton Anniversary Gift Basket, I recommend brainstorming items that can go with each letter. If you can't think of an item you can always match it with another word like One, Two, or New. You can buy cotton items that match the letters such as a cotton T-shirt, you can buy items that use the word "cotton" such as a cotton candle, or you can buy any item and just match it to the letter kind of like what I did. Below I made a list of some possible gift ideas you can use in your gift basket. Feel free to comment with other possible gifts to match the letters! I hope this helps you come up with ideas for your husband or wife's Cotton Anniversary Gift Basket!
