Tin or aluminium is the traditional symbol of the 10th wedding anniversary. When selecting a 10th anniversary gift for a couple or your spouse, look at antique shops, online retailers or jewellery stores to find the perfect tin-themed gift. Wrap it in aluminium foil with a red ribbon for a shiny touch befitting the anniversary theme.

Home Decor

Many home decor items are made from tin. Wall hangings with sayings on them are sometimes printed on tin for a distressed look. Custom-made signs that look like street signs are typically tin. Other options are tin plates, picture frames and clocks. For an artistic person or couple, give a sculpture made of tin or aluminium.


Jewellery is sometimes made out of tin or pewter, an alloy consisting mostly of tin. Cuff links and pendants can make memorable tin anniversary gifts. Their distressed look can be a testimony to the marriage still intact after 10 years of struggles and triumphs. A tin jewellery box or jewellery tree would also be an appropriate 10th anniversary gift.

Tin Canister

Give a present that comes in a tin canister or box. For example, collectable versions of board games are often packaged in tins. Some cookies, teas and candies also are packaged in tins. Another option is to place a gift inside a decorative tin canister or even just a basic aluminium can. This clever wrapping method connects any gift to the tin anniversary theme.

Alternate Modern Gifts

Some couples might choose to give diamond gifts to each other instead of tin gifts, especially if they have the budget for it. The wife would enjoy a diamond ring for her right hand to complement the diamond engagement ring and/or wedding band her left hand. The husband could get a diamond-studded watch or desk clock.
