The ten year mark is the first true milestone anniversary. You have been married for a decade, and a true celebration is in order!
Be sure to make it a special time with the one you love by reading on!
8 Original Ways to Celebrate a 10 Year Wedding Anniversary
1. Recreate the Honeymoon
You were newly married ten years ago, and the honeymoon probably brings back a ton of amazing memories. Try recreating your wedding night, and visit your honeymoon destination again for a weekend or longer. If you didn’t go on a honeymoon, your ten year anniversary gives you a reason to go on one. Set off for your destination, and enjoy one another!
2. Give a Traditional Tenth Anniversary Gift, Which is Something Made of Tin or Aluminum
Tin or aluminum symbolizes the flexibility and durability of a marriage. It also symbolizes its ability to bend without breaking. One gift idea is to buy a tin box filled with chocolate, coupons from you to your spouse (i.e. for a free massage), magazines, books, and love letters. An antique tin toy would also be a cute gift to give. You can find these at garage sales, thrift stores or antique shops. You could also have something engraved. Get creative!
3. Buy Diamond Jewelry as a Gift
The gemstone symbolizing the tenth anniversary is the diamond. A marriage that lasts ten years is just like a diamond–beautiful and durable. You can buy your loved one diamond jewelry, such as earrings, a ring or a necklace. Get something pretty, but don’t go into debt doing it.
4. Find a Bouquet of Daffodils
The tenth anniversary flower is the daffodil. The daffodil symbolizes the happiness and joy that comes with being married for ten years. If you want to buy something smaller than a bouquet, you can buy your loved one a daffodil corsage to wear when you go out to celebrate.
5. Give a Gift That is Silver or Blue
The tenth anniversary color is silver or blue. You can buy your loved one a shirt, dress or tie that is blue or silver. Make it even more interesting by telling him or her that you chose this particular color because it represents ten years of marriage. Your loved one might not have even known that blue or silver is the color for the tenth anniversary!
6. Get Tickets to an Event
You can see a sporting event, concert, ballet or Broadway musical. Start the evening with dinner at a nice restaurant. Afterwards, head out to your event. Enjoy your time together, and be sure to pick something that you will both enjoy for a mutually enjoyed time.
7. Make a Romantic, Candlelit Dinner at Home
Cook dinner for your loved one, and serve it by candlelight. Play your wedding song in the background, and dance to it when it comes on.
8. Pack a Picnic
Put together a picnic lunch, and enjoy eating it in a beautiful park or a spot overlooking the ocean. If you drink wine, bring some wine–if not, bring some sparkling cider. You can serve the drink in plastic wine glasses.

Tips and Warnings
- Writing a love letter is affordable, and it will be appreciated by your loved one for a lot longer than something store bought.
- Don’t go into debt for the sake of a nice gift. If you are going extreme in your celebration, be sure to talk it over with your love beforehand. You share financial responsibilities in the marriage, and you don’t want to create a fight around a beautiful celebration!
