10th wedding anniversary gifts (Tin)

Possibly the most difficult in terms of traditional gifts is the tin anniversary. We recommend hunting down some cufflinks, jewellery or trinkets, or heading to a site like Etsy which stocks hard-to-find gifts.

A silver wedding anniversary is a huge milestone and calls for a rather special gift. Jewellery is a great choice, as is a commemorative plaque or token.

Celebrating 40 years together calls for a unique gift. If you don't want something traditional like a ruby necklace, you can opt instead for a gift that has personal meaning to your partner – just make sure it's red.
