The ten year anniversary, is a special one. This is your first of the major milestone anniversaries! Celebrating your love at such an important milestone should be done with an event: A nice candlelight dinner, a romantic vacation, or a joyful party with your best mutual friends.
Additionally, it is common to give your partner a well-thought out gift. Traditionally, the 10th year anniversary is associated with tin or aluminum gifts. Tin and aluminum both are very bendable and should remind you of the flexibility a serious relationship requires from both partners. In modern times, the tin or aluminum gifts have been replaced with diamond jewelry, where the diamond stands for beauty and strength.
