3. Diamond Bracelet
A more modern trend for the tenth-anniversary gift is to go with diamonds instead of aluminum or tin.

If you and your spouse are fans of splitting a bottle of wine every once and a while, then a great way to commemorate a whole decade side by side is a set of personalized wine glasses.

Either way, your spouse will love it!

Bar tools are a fantastic anniversary gift because they serve both of you: he can have fun playing with new drink makers, and you can enjoy the result of his drink-making adventures.
8. Date Idea Game
When you’ve spent ten years beside the same person, you might find that your dating life is a little less exciting than it once was.

9. Decanter Set
Decanters are a great way of showing affection and care to the drink-maker and cocktail-lover in your life. Add stylish glasses, and you’ve probably found the perfect anniversary gift idea.

Show your man how much you love him with a gift he’ll use for the next ten years together and beyond.
10. Diamond Ring
No rulebook tells you precisely what kind of jewelry to get your lovely lady. After ten years together, you probably know what she loves and doesn’t prefer.
Small but elegant, this diamond ring is a great way to show love to the simple jewelry-wearer in your life.
Diamonds are a more modern gift for the tenth anniversary, but it’s a much better choice than pounding a ring out of tin or aluminum yourself.
11. Anniversary Art
If you want to incorporate creativity, style, and aluminum in one epic gift, consider this watercolor portrait that features you, your extraordinary someone, and the most critical dates in your relationship.
The personalized touch is what makes this gift even more special. Your partner will love the detail that goes into ordering something like this, and it will fit in your home no matter your decor!

A charcuterie board might not seem like the best anniversary gift. After all, doesn’t ten years together deserve more recognition?

14. Monogrammed Wallet
There are a lot of guys out there who have had the same wallet since junior high. That means there are wallets everywhere that need to get replaced.

Make it extra special by adding a monogram of his name, initials, or your wedding date. He’ll have a new place to store his cash and credit cards that will always make him think of you.
If your lady loves to cook, then odds are she needs new cooking supplies. Or maybe she doesn’t, and you feel the urge to surprise her anyway.
Whatever the state of her current pots and pans, it’s worth considering an upgrade for the woman who has made the last ten years absolute heaven.
16. Portable Charcoal Grill
Consider getting her these pots and pans for your anniversary, but don’t make her cook your anniversary dinner; that would be insensitive.
Charcoal grilling is an art that gas and woodchip grills can’t match. There’s something unique and manly about grilling perfect meat on a charcoal grill.
Even though charcoal grills are less standard than their gas counterparts, plenty of people still enjoy cooking with charcoal whenever they get the chance.
Consider getting your man a portable charcoal grill for ten years together so he can stretch his grillmaster skills and impress you more than usual.
Having a diffuser around is a great way to improve the aroma and mood of your house. There are a lot of benefits to having essential oils diffusing around the house daily.
Suppose you don’t have a diffuser; it could make a great anniversary gift. Not only will your spouse love setting up their oils for daily diffusing, but you’ll also appreciate having those pleasant smells and delightful health benefits around the house.
18. Espresso Machine
After ten years together, you might feel that there are no more gifts. Finding something your spouse doesn’t have or something they’ll love becomes harder and harder.

If you have yet to bring an espresso machine into your coffee-making equation, your tenth anniversary is the time to leap.
19. Wedding Photo Frames
After ten years together, you’ve probably been looking at the same wedding photos repeatedly. Even if they’re your favorite photos in the entire house, they could use a little innovation.
Try finding new, fresh frames in which you can house your photos. These frames will bring new life to the photographs captured that particular day.
You could also have anniversary photos commissioned along with your brand-new frames!
