If you are soon to celebrate your 11th wedding anniversary then congratulations! After 11 years together you are sure to know each other so well, but it doesn’t mean your other half might not be a nightmare to buy gifts for!
Year 11 may also pose a challenge as it follows the major milestone of a decade of marriage, meaning it can feel a little overshadowed and underwhelming. But don’t worry, you can still make things special and exciting for your wedding anniversary with the right gift and some extra effort!
The traditional gift for celebrating 11 years of marriage is steel – showing the strength and longevity of your relationship. Alternatively, if you want to go for the modern gift for your 11th wedding anniversary then the theme is jewellery, which offers itself up to quite a broad interpretation meaning less stress overall!
