Celebrating Your Tenth Wedding Anniversary - What to Do and Gifts to Get

Is it time to celebrate your tenth wedding anniversary? Has it been a decade already? Need some ideas?

When you've been married for ten years, it probably feels as if the time just flew by. Your union and bonds are stronger than ever, and you have been through quite a lot together by now.

Kids, homes, pets, jobs, friends and, well, life, have all been experienced, survived, and muddled through with the help of your spouse. Sometimes, it might feel as if you're not going to make it, but here you are still together. It's no wonder that so many people feel that their tenth wedding anniversary is really something to celebrate.

If you're feeling rather romantic and you're able, this might be a good time to renew your vows in a nice ceremony that isn't too over the top. While you're not celebrating your 50th, your tenth is a time for reaffirmation and cherishing one another.

The traditional gift for a tenth wedding anniversary is tin, but if you can't find tin, you may want to consider a metal such as pewter, which has tin in it. You can find something beautiful and meaningful in tin because there are so many options - clocks, statues, figurines and even jewelry can be found in pewter. However, if the love of your life doesn't appreciate this metal, you might want to consider an alternative.

Diamonds are often a preferred alternative for tin when it comes to this anniversary, but you might be surprised to find that the sapphire is also representative of the 10th anniversary, so if you're looking for something that your wife will love and you have a little extra money, gifts with these shiny baubles will certainly delight her and let her know how much you care for her.

Consider something fun for your tenth wedding anniversary, too. Many couples who are at this stage of their marriage still have many things they would like to do together that they haven't done yet. Get together with your spouse and choose something on your "to do" list and do it. Maybe it's a vacation, or weekend get-a-way, or maybe it's just trying a new kind of food. When you make plans for the two of you to do something new together for your tenth wedding anniversary, you're setting the stage for fun and for building precious memories.

Remember that anniversaries don't have to include big extravagant gifts. If you're creative, consider making your spouse a compilation movie of the times you've spent together. Set it to your favorite music over the years and you'll find you've created a gift worth cherishing forever.

If you like to make scrap books, this is a great idea for a tenth wedding anniversary gift. Make sure to keep it lighthearted, and choose photos and mementos of some of the really great times that the two of you have shared over the years. Make sure to leave space for future memories, so you both can add to your scrap book should you choose.

As you age and grow as a couple, you might find that expensive gifts aren't always necessary and it's more important to have time spent together when you're able to pay attention only to each other. With daily demands that most people have, it can be an essential part of a strong marriage to take the time to express your true feelings for your spouse in ways that you might not have time to do anymore. Your tenth wedding anniversary is a perfect time to reconnect and fall in love all over again.

Enjoy the occasion!
