Every anniversary is sentimental in its own way, but the 10-year anniversary is an exceptionally noteworthy event: you're in the double digits now. With such a milestone on the horizon, look to the traditional and modern anniversary gifts by year for some inspiration, then let the shops on Etsy make those ideas dazzle.

Traditionally, the official 10-year wedding anniversary gift is tin or aluminum, and the 10-year anniversary flower is the daffodil. Both tin and daffodils are symbols of strength, resilience, and durability—a nod to a happy and long-lasting marriage. There are also traditional anniversary colors, the 10th being silver (hi, tin and aluminum!) and blue. You can also opt for a modern 10th anniversary gift: diamonds.

Whether you’re feeling the traditional 10th anniversary gifts or a more modern approach, or if you want to do something completely different, we’ve got a selection of the best 10-year anniversary gift ideas for her and him to celebrate this amazing accomplishment.
