11th Wedding Anniversary Gifts: 30 Steel Gift Ideas

Celebrate your 11th wedding anniversary with the traditional gift of steel or go for the modern alternative of jewellery

Steel cufflinks

If you are soon to celebrate your 11th wedding anniversary then firstly, a congratulations is in order. After 11 years together you are sure to know each other so well, but it doesn’t mean your other half is easy to buy for.

The 11th year of marriage may also pose a bit of a unique challenge, as it follows the major milestone of a decade of marriage, meaning it can feel a little overshadowed and underwhelming – last year was the first for double figures. But as always, you can still make things special and exciting for your wedding anniversary with the right gift and plenty of love.

The traditional gift for celebrating 11 years of marriage is steel – showing the strength and longevity of your relationship. But, if you want to go for the modern gift option for your 11th wedding anniversary then the theme is jewellery, which offers itself up to quite a broad range of gifts. For a truly unique gift, why not hunt for a piece of vintage jewellery (we particularly love the options from Dear Rose, With Love). Whether you're buying for him or for her, there are countless options for both steel and jewellery themed gifts.
