Great unique and traditional gift ideas to get your husband or wife for your 10th wedding anniversary
Unique and traditional gifts: 10th wedding anniversary gift ideas
Congratulations on celebrating your tenth wedding anniversary. After having been married for a full decade, I’m sure you’ll want to do something very special for this anniversary. The items normally associated with the tenth anniversary are Tin, Aluminum and Diamonds. I have compiled some ideas for you to get you started on your gift selection and the special ways you can celebrate this milestone.
If you would like to stick with the older tradition of giving tin or aluminum for the tenth anniversary there are a number of fun things you can give your spouse. A tin filled with homemade cookies or a pound of rich coffee in a decorative tin are both simple and inexpensive gift ideas. A picture frame, made from aluminum, with a photo of you as a couple, is another great way to keep your spouse thinking of you.
If you are looking for something a little pricier, you may find a set of aluminum yin and yang vases a beautiful gift or perhaps an aluminum wind chime or tree plate engraved with your names and anniversary.
If you’d like to go with a diamond gift, simple stud earrings for your wife or small cufflinks for your husband are a less expensive way to honor the diamond tradition. A diamond anniversary band for her, or diamond studded watch for him are more expensive ideas. These can also be engraved to give them a more personal feel.
Now, let’s talk about slightly less traditional gifts. Just because something is not a traditional idea from societies perspective doesn’t mean it’s wrong. Only you know this man or woman as well as you do and only you know what they would enjoy. I hope you can build on some of these exciting gift ideas for the non-traditional couple.
Look into marriage camps or retreats in your area. These are often a weekend long adventure that you and your spouse take together. They are a great deal of fun and help your relationship grow even deeper. Consider signing up for dance classes. The style of dance doesn’t matter as much as that it be something you’ll enjoy together. You’ll be learning a new skill, having fun and even keeping yourselves healthy so you’ll have many more wonderful years together.
The tenth anniversary is a perfect time to renew your vows. This can be done in a private two person ceremony on the beach or in front of all your friends and family as you dance the night away in a hotel. Tell the world, or at least your local geographical area, how much you love you spouse by publishing an announcement in your local paper. Be sure to keep a copy for the scrapbook.
One final idea is to start a tradition. Perhaps you can plant a tree each year from now on or make plans to visit the site of your first date. Making the promise to do this every year will help keep your love growing and renewing with each year that passes.
Whether you choose a traditional or non-traditional gift, something inexpensive and homemade or something pricey and store bought, the important thing is the thought behind it. Be sure to take the time to wrap the gift nicely and buy or make an appropriate card to go with it. If you take the time to think about the gift you choose you will find something that you know is just perfect for your husband or wife this year and in the many years to come.
