Wedding anniversary gift giving etiquette

When planning an anniversary gift, there are rules of etiquette that must be followed by the couple, their friends and their family. For starters, soliciting gifts and suggesting registries where people can buy gifts is common practice - but Miss Etiquette gives this behaviour a thumbs down. Asking for money as the host is considered below tacky and people should avoid requesting for monetary gifts.

As a guest, your gift needs to be appropriate for the relationship you have with the couple. It’s always best to stick with the traditional gifts but be creative with your present and, of course, keep it appropriate.

10th year wedding anniversary gift ideas

10 years of marriage requires celebration. While people don’t ordinarily give gifts to loved ones to celebrate each and every anniversary, this is one that you cannot ignore. There are various ways you can approach this gift giving ceremony. You can choose to go with the traditional gift approach or a more modern practice. Flowers make great gifts and for those who don’t want to spend much cash, flowers are always a great option. However, you need to know that even with flowers there are few things you need to think about. For starters, the colour of the flower is a huge consideration and different colours have different meanings. The same goes with the type of flowers. Flowers are symbolic and they have different meanings. Find out which flower is used to celebrate the 10th anniversary.

Let’s have a look at the traditional gifts you can buy for the 10th anniversary. As mentioned, tin and aluminium are the ideal gifts. However, you don’t specially have to buy items made with these materials. Silver coloured items would work and items such as picture frames, plates, opera glasses and even watches can make good gifts. Diamonds are used to signify beauty and strength. This makes diamond-encrusted items and jewellery good gifts for the spouse to buy. However, we suggest that you buy a formal piece because chances are your partner already has casual pieces that are worn often. This also makes the piece special. When it comes to selecting the colour of the gift, silver and blue represent the 10th anniversary. Colour significance gives the gift special meaning and gifts can include electronics, clothing and jewellery. Gifts don’t have to be expensive and you can select gifts with sentimental value such as a scrapbook and other keepsake items.

Tips to choosing the ideal 10th wedding anniversary gift

When buying the gifts for the 10th anniversary, you first have to determine if the gift should be traditional or contemporary. This helps give you a theme to work with. Of course you need to consider the couple and in this case, it’s both persons that need to be considered, not one partner. Think about the age of the couple when buying gifts. The kind of gifts you buy for a young couple are much different to what you’d buy for an elderly couple. You don’t have to buy expensive gifts. A scrapbook is not only creative but inexpensive too.

When going with contemporary gifts, you can buy diamonds without breaking the budget. Tiny studs are great and cufflinks are also be useful. Be creative with your presentation - you can use a traditional gift option such as aluminium for wrapping. For example, you could buy an aluminium tin or bucket and place your gift inside it. This way, you stay true to the traditional theme while being creative. It’s always best to have the gift delivered by a courier service to give a more personalised feel. If you are able to deliver it in person, it’s even better.

Top retailers for 10th wedding anniversary gifts

For those buying the gifts for a couple, you’re also in luck because at finder.com.au, there are plenty of vendors that you can access to make your gift buying exercise much easier. Before we can proceed to highlight these gift ideas, it’s important to give you a few tips on what to look for the gift.
First, the gift needs to be useful to your recipient. Second, it needs to creative. For example when thinking of tin, you don’t necessarily have to buy tin gifts. A tin of cookies or gourmet coffee would work.

The importance of the 10th Wedding Anniversary

The 10th anniversary is special and cannot go without recognition. There are lots of gift ideas you can work with and you don’t have to be fixated on buying anything officially affiliated with the event.
