Celebrate your 8th wedding anniversary with gifts inspired by bronze, the traditional 8th anniversary gift material.

Hey, it's Nicole of Making it Lovely bringing you some traditional anniversary gift ideas inspired by bronze. My husband and I will be celebrating our eighth anniversary next year so I'm getting a head start on my planning.

I had so much fun pulling this together, so I hope you enjoy my “bronze" anniversary gift picks.
