Every anniversary is unique in its own right, but your 10 year anniversary is by far a special one. You’ve made it through one whole decade with your significant other. But there’s one challenge you might face after ten anniversaries together – the fact that you’ve already gone through ten years of gift-giving! It may seem like you’ve exhausted every gift option you can think of after all this time.
Fear not! We’re here to help guide you through this. Based on the list of traditional wedding anniversary gifts by year, couples gift each other an item made of tin or aluminium to mark a decade together. You’re probably thinking “what romantic gift could I possibly give my spouse made out of tin?!” Well, we’ve put a bit of a creative twist on the traditional theme, giving you a list of tin-tastic 10 year anniversary gifts your spouse will love.
Traditional 10 Wedding Anniversary Theme – Aluminium or Tin
Traditionally, 10 year anniversary gifts are something made of tin or aluminium. While it may sound a little strange, these materials represent the durability and flexibility you need to sustain a loving marriage. Now that you think about it… it seems quite sweet! While you may have needed to compromise or have some “flexibility” over the years, your love remains more durable than ever a decade later.
Just as the material represents flexibility, you may also have some room to be flexible in your gift-giving. We have some gift ideas for you that are a bit out of the box but still stay true to that theme.
Modern 10 Wedding Anniversary Theme – Diamonds
Whoever changed the 10th anniversary gift from tin to diamonds might’ve been up to something. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend after all right? While a new diamond jewellery necklace might not be a financially feasible option for everybody, there are still ways to make the tin and aluminium theme just as exciting.
10th Wedding Anniversary Flowers – Daffodils
If you’re looking for flowers to accompany your gift, then a bouquet of daffodils is the perfect flower. Daffodils represent rebirth and new beginnings. You two are going into a new decade of your relationship, which means you’re going to face so many new experiences and opportunities together. What better way to symbolize this than with a bouquet of these cheerful flowers?
