Every year of marriage is worth celebrating, but especially when youâ€™ve been going a decade strong. Traditionally, tin or aluminum is meant to commemorate the 10th wedding anniversary. Known for their resilience and inability to rust, they symbolize the durability of your marriage. But if you want to giveâ€”or receiveâ€”a bit more glamorous of a gift, you might prefer the more modern 10th-anniversary theme: diamonds. Because by 10 years, your marriage is just as beautiful as that glittering rock.
From tin to aluminum to diamonds, weâ€™ve rounded up some gift options for all three. Of course, thereâ€™s sparkling jewelry on this list. But there are also a few practical gifts, like an aluminum cookware set and a portable backpack chair. We even threw in a few sweet, personalized items that will make your spouseâ€™s heart swell.
Read on for the best 10th anniversary gifts.
What to look for in a 10th anniversary gift
Tin, the traditional gift
A symbol of strength and durability, tin is a perfect representation of a decade of marriage. From personalized artwork to utilitarian gifts, there's something for everyone.
Diamonds, the modern gift
There's a reason that diamonds are a girl's best friend. Diamonds will last forever, and they pretty much go with any outfitâ€”they're classic, sophisticated, and elegant.
Thoughtful and personalized presents
Remember, the best gifts are not always the ones that cost the most. "The most important thing about a gift is the thought that goes into it," advises etiquette expert Myka Meier. "A photo that is in a frame and beautifully wrapped, or even something you made, can be a great option that may not cost a lot of money but does show a lot of thought."
Any anniversary is a major milestone thatâ€™s deserving of a thoughtful celebration. While giving a gift to your bae is a wonderful way to mark the occasion, sometimes the most meaningful gifts are the ones that money canâ€™t buy. After a decade of marriage, you know the things that will bring a smile to the face of your spouse, so a bit of thoughtful planning will go a long way.
If they enjoy low-key evenings at home, treat them to a special dinner complete with candles, a favorite meal, and their wedding playlistâ€”it's a super romantic way to create an intimate celebration with meaning. For the adventurer, surprise them with a day or overnight trip to a place that holds special memories. Whatever you choose to do, a little bit of thought and creativity will go a long way.
