A decade is a milestone for any reference, but it is especially important for a marriage. That’s why a 10 year anniversary gift should reflect just how much the couple has shared in their first decade together.
As with any other year there are designated items that are supposed to be used to represent your time together. For this year it is tin or aluminum for those who are more into the traditional style. For the more modern couple, the emphasis is placed on diamond jewelry.
To be honest, normally when you think of a nice present you don’t often think of tin or aluminum as your first choice. But that is where imagination can come in handy. This is a way to take an idea and customize it to your own tastes.
A man would have to be creative here so that he does not offend a woman. He will need to look at her individual tastes and interests in order to make this work. Also, take into account if she works from home or goes to an office, as this can make a world of difference in the options.
For the woman who works from home, something decorative to place out in the home would be a nice choice. It could be something general for decorating or it could focus strictly on her loves and interests.
If she happens to be into gardening there are quite a few options. Perhaps something for her gardening needs, whether it is decorative or something that she can use on an ongoing basis when she works in the flowers.
If her passions lie within the walls of the home then you can look at something just for her needs. It could be something like a nice tasteful piece for the kitchen or even a plaque for a specific room in the home.
For the professional woman a nice aluminum business card holder or wallet would do well. These can even be monogrammed as an extra touch.
Men are easier to buy for in this category as you can find them quite a selection of items that they can use around the home. Or if they have a special interest a reproduction of a collectible toy from their childhood that would be a nice touch, as well.
More modern choices for a 10 year anniversary gift would be something in diamond jewelry. This really doesn’t need further explanation, as women will be easy to please when it comes to this area of gifts. Even men can benefit from this choice as long as the man is comfortable with diamond adornment.
