Ten years is a long time, an era by any estimation. When marking 10 years of marriage though, it’s a landmark celebration that deserves to be honoured with something special.
When Prince William married Kate Middleton in 2011, the national event was marked with royal pageantry, fanfare and boozy street parties up and down the country.
With the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrating 10 happy years together, we’ve put together an edit of gifts perfect for other couples marking this major milestone together.
Tin is the traditional gift for a decade of marriage, conveying strength, durability and standing the test of time. At first mention, it may not seem like the most glamorous gift around but there are some really rather lovely ideas that any couple would cherish.
We’ve put together an edit of the best, whether you’re sending something to your 10 year strong couple or shopping for your soulmate.
