If you are celebrating 10 years of married life, then a big congratulations goes out to you! After a decade of marriage, you are sure to have been through some challenges and also have some great memories. Despite knowing each other so well, it’s sometimes difficult to know what to buy each other for your 10 year wedding anniversary.
The traditional gift for a 10 year wedding anniversary is tin. Tin has traditionally been used to store and preserve things, which is why it makes a great pick to honour a decade of love. Luckily, it’s also a fairly easy theme to get on board with; whether you want to pick up a little candle in a tin or buy a sentimental keepsake made from the metal, we have found some of the most inspired options.
If tin isn’t your thing, why not opt for diamond, which is the modern alternative for 10 years? Nobody could say no to a diamond, and these days, the variety in diamond jewellery is expanding so much so that you can buy all sorts of diamonds for different price points and in different sizes and cuts.
Take a look at some of our favourite 10th wedding anniversary gift ideas right here.
