The Best 10-Year Anniversary Gift Ideas for Her, Him and Them
10 years! How did the time go so fast? The wedding seems like it was just yesterday, and now you're celebrating a major milestone. A decade of marriage is definitely something to commemorate, so you're probably on the lookout for a gift that reflects such an incredible journey. We've got 10-year anniversary gift ideas you'll love, whether you're a friend or relative looking for the perfect gift for the happy couple, or you're a husband or wife looking for a present for your spouse.
What is the 10-year anniversary gift?
According to etiquette, the traditional 10-year anniversary gift is tin or aluminum. That doesn't exactly sound glamorous, right? The good news is, there are tons of creative, fun and romantic gifts made of these silver-toned metals.
The other upside is that the modern 10-year anniversary gift is diamond jewelry, which definitely feels glamorous. Plus, each anniversary is also symbolized by a shade: the 10-year anniversary color is silver or blue. And who's to say you can't make tradition, anyway? Your present certainly isn't limited to these categories. Whether your 10th wedding anniversary gift budget is big or small, we've got a variety of classic and unique ideas—in fact, we'll start off with the latter. Happy shopping—and of course, happy anniversary, lovebirds.
