10 Year Anniversary Gift Ideas

Looking for a very special 10 year anniversary gift? We've got plenty of ideas and inspiration, whether you want to embrace the traditional 10th anniversary "tin" or "aluminum" gift, or just find a really sweet and thoughtful gift.

10 Year Anniversary Gift Traditions

The tradition is to give an aluminum or tin anniversary gift for the 10 year wedding anniversary, whereas the modern gift list says a leather gift. Daffodils are the traditional 10 year anniversary flower, although some anniversary flower lists say Sweet Pea. And the American Gem Trade Assocation says diamonds are the gem to give for your 10th wedding anniversary gift. I thought you only got diamonds after decades of marriage! It's our 10 year anniversary in a few months so I'm interested to see what my husband makes of these traditional gift ideas, LOL!

On this page you'll find a range of unique, creative, sentimental, and lovely gift ideas, whether you want to stick with tradition or not. I really hope you find something you like for this significant anniversary!

Aluminum & Tin Anniversary Gifts

The traditional gift for a 10th wedding anniversary is made of Tin or Aluminum. You'd be surprised but we're surrounded by some pretty cool things made out of these materials. Here is a brainstorm of ideas we came up with for interesting anniversary gift ideas. Treat them as a starting point, and then you can search online or at a shop near you to find the most appropriate gift. I've included links where I can to Amazon for your convenience.

Hammered Tin Anniversary Gifts

To me, hammered tin is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of tin jewelry. If you want to buy a traditional 10 year anniversary gift then a pair of cufflinks would be a good choice for a tin anniversary gift for him.

A hammered tin pendant would be a lovely 10 year anniversary gift for your wife.

And I just had to put these beautifully made aluminum bowls here as another gift idea for your 10 year anniversary. Varying in shape from round, oval, to square, they are a piece of art in themselves.

Gifts in a "Tin"

Not really into "tin" but want to make a nod to the theme, then buy your husband or wife a gift "in a tin" instead!

These candles in a tin are beautifully presented and you can buy them in the most divine fragrances.

10 year anniversary gift

I love drinking tea (I do live in the UK after all!), and I love the beautiful tin packaging. If you're partner is into tea, then they will really appreciate a tin of tea.

And if your husband or wife is a bit of a foodie, then a collection of gourmet nuts in a tin will be just the thing!

Aluminum Gifts for Home and Garden

If you're looking for a gift which really marks your 10 year anniversary, then a personalized aluminum wall plaque could be just the thing.

These beautifully made tin light fixtures are so intricate and a really unique gift idea. I think the Mexican hanging tin star lights are gorgeous!

10 year anniversary gift

Another 10 year anniversary gift idea for the home is a decorative aluminum vase. From a modern mirrored surface to bark-patterned, there are a lot of options available. An especially lovely gift if it comes with a beautiful bunch of flowers!

10 year anniversary gift

An aluminum fire table is a really special 10 year anniversary gift idea for any couple who love entertaining, or sitting out on their deck in the evening enjoying each other's company.

An aluminum garden bench is a fun 10 year anniversary gift idea if you enjoy sitting out in your yard together. It's almost an investment in your marriage as you will invariably spend more time sitting together enjoying each other's company now you have somewhere nice to sit! From more traditional to modern styles, there is something for everyone.

For a lover of coffee who is environmentally conscious and doesn't want to use a coffee capsule machine, these Italian coffee makers are perfect. They make the best espresso and take up very little space!

I just had to put this aluminum gift idea in. These retro anodized aluminum tumblers are so awesome. We had a set of these cups when I was growing up and I loved how colorful they were.

10 year anniversary gift

For a modern option, buy an aluminium water bottle. They keep your drinks cold or hot for hours, are super light-weight, and really robust. Great for an intrepid couple, or if you're looking for a practical 10 year anniversary gift that they can use every day.

More 10 year Anniversary Gifts...

Looking for more 10 year anniversary gift ideas? Aside from a bunch of flowers and a nice dinner out, here are some more gift ideas to inspire you.

Diamond Jewelry

The gemstone to give at your 10 year anniversary is diamonds. Really! I thought you had to wait decades to reach your diamond anniversary, but according to the American Gem Trade Assocation, diamonds are the gift to give after 10 years together. And it just so happens that my husband and I are about to celebrate our 10 year anniversary so I'll have to let him know of this discovery, LOL!

So, you'd like to buy a diamond gift? You could buy a diamond eternity band to complement her wedding and engagement set. Or some beautiful diamond earrings or a diamond pendant.

10 Year Anniversary Flower Gift: Daffodils

The traditional 10 year anniversary flower is the Daffodil. If your partner is a keen gardener, then buy them some daffodil (narcissus) bulbs so they can enjoy the flowers for years to come.

If you like botanical-styled prints, then you can find some beautiful Daffodil Prints online.

10 year anniversary gift

I love the vintage-style print on book paper, they're so cool! And the beautiful print with a quote form William Wordsworth's poem about daffodils "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud".


A photo-book of the first 10 years of your marriage makes a wonderful 10 year anniversary gift. You could start with a favorite photo or two from your wedding day, and then include photos from your honeymoon, of your house together, any special trips you've done, just hanging out at home. Try to include key events over the years - holidays, children, pets, houses, cars. It's a lovely memento for your partner and you to look through and reflect on all the things you've done together!

There are so many online services that you can use to design and print your book. Or you can do a scrapbook and include written notes and other tickets/mementos from the year too. This idea takes a bit of time to make, but it is a great one for those of you who are organised to do it in time!

Anniversary Origami

An "easy" 10 year anniversary gift could be to give your other half some beautifully folded money and tell them you're taking them out for a day of fun - whether that's to the mall, or to a bar dancing, or out to dinner, whatever suits their style. It's a thoughtful way to give a gift where the receiver can still choose the actual gift themselves.

These designs are not difficult to do, and have video and step-by-step photo instructions. Give it a try! It's a great option for a last minute 10 year anniversary gift.
