What is the Traditional Gift for a 10 Year Wedding Anniversary?

"If you’re one to follow the 'rules', the traditional 10th wedding anniversary gift is tin and the modern being diamonds," explains gifting expert Elisabeth Noel Jones, of GiftMeChic.

"For the 10th anniversary milestone, I lean into diamonds but I love the idea of giving the gift even more meaning by re-purposing diamonds from an existing family heirloom and using them to create a 'new' piece of jewellery with your spouse's aesthetic in mind. You could even create it together as a fun 10th wedding anniversary project," Elisabeth continues.

What Does Tin Symbolise for 10 Years of Marriage?

You give tin gifts for ten years of marriage as tin is a symbol of strength and durability - after 10 years together, you will have a bond that is strong and durable like tin, so you know you can overcome any obstacles together.

What Do Diamonds Symbolise for 10 Years of Marriage?

 The modern gift for a 10 year wedding anniversary is diamonds - this is because diamonds are super strong and durable, just like tin - and we suspect somebody out there fancied a sparklier gift than tin!

Is a 10 Year Wedding Anniversary Special?

Celebrating 10 years of marriage is super special - after a decade together, you have likely been through an awful a lot. Some say the first year of marriage is the hardest, but getting to 10 years isn't something to be taken lightly.

"Buying an anniversary gift for your spouse shows that you are honouring the special day between you and the life that you are building and have built together, no matter how much time has gone by," adds Elisabeth Noel Jones on the importance of treating your partner on your tenth marriage anniversary. 

As well as buying each other tin or diamond 10 year wedding anniversary gifts, make sure you also spend time focusing on the intimacy in your relationship and sharing what you love about each other.
