Tin or aluminium are the materials traditionally associated with this important milestone in a couples married life together. Why tin and aluminium, you’re probably asking, so let’s explain……….
Both tin and aluminium are renowned for their pliability, and this quality matches perfectly the 10 year milestone in a marriage. A successful marriage requires flexibility, but at the same time durability, both qualities of tin and aluminium.
The modern equivalent of traditional tin and aluminium is the precious diamond. Any marriage that has lasted through ten years of trials and tribulations must be strong but still beautiful. An alternative gemstone is blue sapphire. The 10th anniversary colour is silver or blue. And if flowers are your thing, then the trumpeting daffodil is the one to buy for a decade of married life.

If you’re looking for something for a couple of friends how about matching tin lunch boxes. A natty idea that’s also a bit if fun. Maybe you think a decade together deserves a special holiday.

Take a step away from the hustle and bustle, with a night cuddled up watching a big screen movie.
Breakfast in Bed
