10th Wedding Anniversary Gift Guide

Wedding anniversaries are always a cause for celebration, especially those in the double figures!

Similarly to the wedding held 10 years ago, anniversaries are a celebration of the love between two people and while this love is a gift all by itself, if you’re looking for an extra gift to show your spouse how special your relationship is, then we can help!

What is the significance of 10th wedding anniversaries?

Any amount of time spent happily married is significant and a happy occasion. The first double-digit mile stone, though, is particularly special. Customarily, wedding anniversaries are assigned materials from which gifts “should” be made and flowers that “should” be given. Ten years has traditionally been assigned:

  • Material: Tin
  • Flower: Daffodil

However, just because 10 year gifts should traditionally be made of tin (not the most glamorous of materials!), it’s a great excuse to get creative for that special someone.

Getting Personal

Tips for finding the perfect gift:

  • Think about who the gift is for!
  • Always remember that the gift is not for you but for your significant other! So as much as you might like daffodils, if the recipient of the gift has hayfever, they might not be the smartest idea!

  • Think outside the box
  • Some of the best gifts are the unusual ones, the ones that the recipient may not have thought to purchase for themselves.

  • This gift is from YOU
  • Traditions are nice but remember at the end of the day that this gift is from YOU, so you can take some liberties where ‘tradition’ is concerned, especially if the person you’re buying for is less than traditional themselves!

Tips for anniversary gift giving

  • Gifts for him: In general, many men prefer practical gifts that they can use in their daily lives. These gifts can be particularly lovely as something they use all the time will remind them of you and this celebration.
  • Gifts for her: In general, women often prefer more sentimental gifts. Wedding anniversaries are a great opportunity to be personal. Be sure to use the wedding date and initials wherever you can.
  • Family and friends: When buying anniversary gifts for family and friends, you can always go for matching gifts as a way to celebrate both parts of the couple. Or, choose a present reminiscent of the original wedding- a bottle of the wine you drank at the reception, for example.

Ideas for celebrating your anniversary

If you are celebrating 10 wonderful years together, here are some ideas on ways to spend your special day:

  • Go out for dinner or, stay in!
    Go for dinner in the same restaurant you used to go to on dates, or try somewhere new and treat yourself to a menu you wouldn’t usually splash out on. Or, if you have busy lives and are always on the go, why not celebrate by staying in and having a quiet night just the two of you? Cook a meal or order a takeaway, it’s up to you!
  • Do something for the first time
    Even though you’ve been together for 10 years, there’s surely still some things that neither of you have done before. Make your anniversary a day to remember by going rock climbing, skydiving, canoeing, whatever you fancy!
    • Go on a trip
      Whether you treat yourselves to one night away in a countryside B&B or two weeks in the sun, find a great deal and turn your holiday into an anniversary celebration.
