Tradition dictates gifts made out of a specific material on each wedding anniversary. The materials for the 10th anniversary are tin and aluminium. Whether you need a gift for your husband or for a male friend celebrating his 10th anniversary, choose something that features aluminium or tin. For a creative touch, wrap the gift in aluminium foil so it goes with the theme.

Men often enjoy grilling during the summer and sometimes even braving the weather during other seasons. If the man celebrating the anniversary likes to grill and is lacking equipment up to his standards, get him an aluminium grill. Choose one that is large enough for the size of gathering he typically likes to have when grilling, whether it is just two couples or the whole neighbourhood.

Food Tins

An old saying claims that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Many types of foods come in tins, so choose some of a man's favourite treats and purchase versions of them that are packaged in tins. Ideas include cookies, tea and coffee. If you cannot find his favourite food sold in a tin, purchase an antique tin and fill it with a homemade treat.

Fishing Gear

Fishing rods and accessories are often made out of aluminium, so give a man who enjoys spending time outdoors fishing equipment. If a man already has enough fishing rods, try an aluminium tackle box instead. One way to make a fishing-related gift more special is to also give a coupon promising a weekend of fishing with the guys.


Although cookware is not always made out of aluminium or tin anymore, when it was, it was a common 10th anniversary gift. Follow the spirit of the tradition by getting a set of pots and pans for a man who likes to cook. If you want to be literal, choose a set that includes aluminium in its material. If you think he would prefer something else, just buy that and add a note that you wanted to get him aluminium, but you chose something better instead.
