All recipients have a different sense of style and taste, so use this collection of themes linked with the 10th wedding anniversary to find a gift that will impress your loved one(s), while speaking to their own individuality.
Traditional 10th Anniversary Theme for Gifts: United States: Aluminium; United Kingdom: Tin
Both aluminium and tin are flexible and long-lasting, just like a marriage which has lasted for a decade.
Tin also brings a meaning of long life and preservation, just like the saving of food in tin cans. As tin protects from rust, so tin as a gift symbolises a marriage's ability to last for the long haul.
Modern 10th Anniversary Theme for Gifts: Diamond Jewellery
Diamond's radiance is equally matched by its strength and clarity. When given as an anniversary gift, it symbolises eternal love, beauty and an inner fire of burning passion.
Alternate Stone: Onyx, Crystal or Green Tourmaline
Colour: Silver or Blue
Floral Theme: Daffodil, **Silver or Blue Rose
The daffodil's meaning is one of honesty and forgiveness, as well as faith. As this flower returns every spring, so it indicates love in a marriage which is given unconditionally.
**The silver or blue rose is a romantic alternative for this anniversary, in keeping with the colour theme, and the symbol of eternal love that a rose represents.
