If your wedding anniversary is just around the corner, you’ll be on the hunt for a beautiful, cherished gift for your loved one. A hand-crafted Richmond copper kettle fits the bill perfectly, and can take pride of place in your marital kitchen for years to come. Not convinced? Here are five reasons why one of our kettles is a perfect anniversary present:
1: it’s a traditional anniversary gift.
Copper is one of the time-honoured materials that can be given to or between a couple when they reach a certain number of years of marriage. British tradition suggests copper can be given to a couple on their ninth wedding anniversary, although variations on the American list means couples in the US only have to wait seven years before reaching their copper anniversary. And for those that have been married longer, Richmond’s silver kettles make excellent gifts for those who have been married for 25 years.
2: it’s a suitable gift for men and women.
When looking for gifts, it can be very easy to fall into the trap of buying something that’s gender-specific or stereotypical, such as expensive perfume for ladies or a pair of cufflinks for gentlemen. But most items that contribute towards the interior design of your home don’t discriminate. So whether you’re buying for a man or for a woman, a stylish copper kettle from the Richmond range can be appreciated by anybody.
3: it can be enjoyed by both of you.
Gifts that can be utilised and enjoyed by both halves of a couple are perfect for underlining the strength of a relationship. As with many items for the kitchen, a copper kettle falls into this category as an important part of a shared environment within your home. Sitting on top of your stove or cooker, you can both look upon the kettle with pride and a sense of unity.
4: it will get used every day.
Richmond copper kettles don’t just sit around looking pretty: they’re practical pieces of equipment, too. Buying one as an anniversary gift is therefore a purchase that’s as practical as it is sentimental, and means both of you can enjoy memories of a special wedding anniversary every time you make a cup of tea.
5: it makes up for the one you didn’t get when you got married!
If a copper kettle didn’t make the cut when you created your wedding gift list, or it was passed over by your family and friends, then getting one as a wedding anniversary gift is an excellent opportunity to rectify the situation. A beautiful, melodic kettle, hand-made using the same methods employed by craftsmen for more than a century, can catch the eye of your visitors in the way that few other kitchen items can.
Richmond’s range of hand-spun copper kettles are the ideal gift, with models available to suit every type of stove-top. Take a closer look at our products here.
