Traditional 10th Year Anniversary Gifts

Back in the day, people started this tradition of giving specific materials as gifts for each wedding anniversary. It's thought to have kicked off in Victorian England during the 19th century.

Now, when it comes to the 10th wedding anniversary, the tradition suggests giving something made of tin. Why tin? It's a flexible and durable material that doesn't easily rust or corrode, so in a sense it symbolizes the strength and endurance needed for a marriage to last a whole decade. 

And while traditional gifts aren't mandatory for a 10-year anniversary (or any anniversary, for that matter), here are some ideas for if you want to incorporate tin into your gift giving: 

  1. A Tin Kit: Feel free to embrace a literal approach when searching for a 10-year anniversary gift with a tin theme. Consider gifting your significant other a tin kit, whether it's a kit that's holding self-care items, art supplies, or something else that aligns with their interests. It's a creative and functional way to commemorate this special milestone.
