I don't know much about the "paper" "cotton" "china" themed anniversary gifts for a given year. We don't celebrate our anniversaries like that. I haven't been one to give a gift based on some arbitary standard that doesn't reflect our interests. Honestly I don't even know what the supposed gifts are for each anniversary although I've heard of it. I wonder if it's a regional thing because not too many people do that here.
If she likes watches and pampering, a watch and spa gift certificate are great.
A handwritten letter about your first two years of marriage is even better (if I were her). My husband did something similar, but not after two years of marriage. His letter is something I really cherish.
You could compile some of the best photos (if they're digital) into a simple photobook you can make on any number of online photo places like Shutterfly.com It only takes maybe an hour or less for a photobook. It's very easy to use these sites and they have so many looks to choose from.
