The traditional second anniversary gift is cotton. A wonderful gift for your spouse (or for a newlywed couple) is a 100% cotton bedding set. The great thing about cotton bedding is that is stays cool in the summer and provides warmth in the winter. There is nothing like the feeling of slipping into cool cotton bed sheets on a hot summer night.
100% cotton bedding
Cotton is a natural, durable and breathable fabric. Choosing 100% cotton bedding means you are getting a high quality product that will last for many years. The 4-piece Utopia Bedding set shown is very affordable, high quality and easy to take care of; the fabric is pre-shrunk to protect against additional shrinkage after washing and drying.
This 200-count cotton bedding set has a fitted sheet that fits mattresses that are deep or that have a pillow top, so it will definitely fit your mattress. I love that it is stain-resistant and fade-resistant. That means I could use them for years!
Utopia Bedding also offers the following products with the same high quality:

Patterned cotton bedding
If a floral, stripe or damask bedding is more your style, there are plenty of options in 100% cotton bedding. This lattice duvet cover set has to be my favorite. I think the cool gray (or platinum) and white pattern would be perfect year round. Pair it with the sunny yellow sheets for summer and a dark teal or maroon for winter. Very versatile.
At 300-count, this bedding set is soft and comfy. The button enclosure makes it easy to remove and wash. Plus it is machine washable.

Egyptian cotton bedding
Top-of-the-line sheets are 100 percent Egyptian cotton. If you haven’t experienced the luxury and elegance of high quality Egyptian cotton bedding, you need to try it; there is a big difference! Egyptian cotton has extra-long fibers (1 3/8 inch). The long fibers can be wound into extra-fine strands, creating a durable and luxuriously soft material for Egyptian cotton sheet sets. The softness of Egyptian cotton bedding is enhanced with each washing. Although this means Egyptian cotton bedding is more expensive, it isn’t as expensive as it used to be.
Here are some beautiful Egyptian cotton bedding options for a second anniversary gift:
