10th wedding anniversary gift ideas on some modern anniversary lists are celebrated with leather, but as with all modern anniversary lists that is not always the case!
The traditional gift for your 10th is tin.
Some modern lists have aluminum as their gift of choice, I can't quite see the difference between aluminum and tin but I am sure there is one! Answers on a postcard please!
Romantic Leather Gifts
One very beautiful way to incorporate leather into your gift is this lovely leather rose, or you could even send an aluminum rose if you were feeling more traditional.
Both are available from JustPaperRoses
Leather anniversary gifts are practical and are also seen on the traditional anniversary list on your 3rd anniversary, so if there is a gift that you missed out on 7 years ago then now is your chance.
Leather could mean a new leather sofa if anyone asks what you would like - donations to your new sofa fund would be a possible gift option as it is unlikely that anyone will buy it for you!
Handbags, belts, wallets and purses are a great gift as they are used every day, but don't forget to add a little love note or maybe have the purse personalized with their initials or the date of your wedding.
Although shoes are generally made from leather it is probably not the thing to buy unless they have requested it and give you the style and size, the same goes for leather trousers.
For those that love to write in journals you could get a leather bound book with a beautiful pen. This also works for avid readers - leather bound books of their favourite author or book and complete sets of classic books, or an atlas would be perfect. You could also put together a photobook from the last 10 years.
For those with a sense of adventure you could get leather driving gloves and the chance to drive a racing car.
For those of you that love to travel you can get leather passport covers and travel wallets and you could put tickets for a romantic getaway!
However it is not all about leather, it can also be about aluminum and that is not just about a tin of beans! 10th anniversary travel ideas could be to go to the countries that tin is mined. And according to Wikipedia that could be a number of places; China, Malaysia, Peru, Indonesia, Brazil, Bolivia, Russia, Thailand, Australia, and Britain are the main ones. Cornwall in Britain hasn't been a major tin producer since the 19th Century but it is such a beautiful place to visit we sneaked it back on the list!
