10th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

Ten Years, a decade! Congratulations - you have reached your 10th Wedding Anniversary. Sometimes referred to as the Decennial anniversary. Well done! This year is a celebration of the fact that together you have created a successful marriage. You have been together for ten years, no doubt with your ups and downs. What better reason to celebrate?

Some sources report that the tin and aluminum symbols of the tenth wedding anniversary gift represent durability and pliability, meaning it can be bent but not broken. Within your marriage by this stage you will have experience the need to compromise on some things, but your marriage is still going strong.

    How to Celebrate

    After ten years of wedded fun, some things have probably changed. Children might be on the scene, so the way you celebrate your anniversary might be different. But please if you do have kids, don't let them rule.

    You could divide your anniversary into two parts - one part as a family and the other adults only! If you can organize a getaway, if not - make the time for romance at home.
