Husband and I celebrate 10years of marriage next month. Tin is the traditional gift and I've been desperately trying to find perfect present for him to celebrate 10 fab years but I keep hitting a brick wall. Why are men so hard to buy for!
I asked my blogging pals to share their ideas for 10th wedding anniversary gifts for men and while I can't reveal what I've decided on just yet, I can share their fantastic suggestions...
The Manly Man Co's ''I bought my husband a personalised photo frame with a photo of us stood in front of a tin mine' eastsussexmummy.wordpress.com
'A nice watch and get a message engraved on the back of it' anklebitersadventures.co.uk
'As a man I would like new power tools 😁 always lots of power tools 😁. But if it’s got to be romantic I would like a weekend away with my wife at Zip World adventure sports in north Wales 🏴😃 hope this helps!' wood-create.com
'A nice framed picture using maps of where we went on honeymoon, something that would look terrible if I tried to make it but there are lots of clever creative people who could help!' mummyswaisted.co.uk
'My husband loves jewellery so I'd probably pick a signet ring!' katykicker.com
'We tend to do events or getaways as anniversary presents. So a weekend away with Dinner in a posh restaurant or tickets to a concert/festival or theatre production always goes down well with either of us! 👍' thesillydaddychronicles.co.uk
'Tickets to their favourite sporting event or team. An executive box would be best!' householdmoneysaving.com
'I always take this opportunity to be a little selfish and do something that is going to benefit me too.... so a night away it is. I make sure we go to different places each year. It is really fun and so nice to be baby free.' mybump2baby.com
'My partner loves a drink. So I opt for a brewing experience or a beer subscription box. Both keep him happy and let me catch up on my trash TV without any complaints. 😂' maxandmummy.co.uk
'A spa weekend away with lots of good food and indulgence!' lyliarose.com
'For a 10th wedding anniversary I think a gift of a weekend away or a slap up meal out would be ideal, even with the kid(s) in tow. It's a chance for some extra family time and I'm not sure my man would be bothered about a gift that he can open. Your wedding day holds so many memories that it's nice to be able to go out together and really sit and talk about them' ourbucketlistlives.co.uk
'My husband would enjoy a homebrew kit. You can get really simple ones now with quick and easy results. I would particularly enjoy sampling the results so it's a winner all round! 😉' falcondalelife.com
'It is our 10th this year as well! I planned us a trip to Scotland which is something he always wanted to do, and I'm going to do all the things he likes (like every castle in the country I think!) I love giving people time and experience as a gift by doing something they love, especially if it's something you wouldn't usually do' welshmum.co.uk
'This has to be something you can enjoy together! Things we have loved... A day experience flying birds of prey in their own habitat. If he’s the outdoor type. A racing day - this is fabulous for a car enthusiast!
Money tight? Arrange to meet all your family and friends for a celebratory drink. Tell him it’s just the two of you going and ya-dah!' spinninplates.com
'Something to upgrade the car? I surprised my husband with those fancy new shoes for his car in hopes of getting him motivated to travel on the road with the family more! :)' myparentingjourney.com
'Something really personal, for example I would choose an engraved plectrum because my husband plays guitar. I also think handmade gifts are the best, such as '100 reasons I love you' all in a jar. I think the simple and thoughtful gifts are the best.' kellyallenwriter.com
'10th is tin so how about - tickets to see the wizard of oz and the tin man or a night in a hotel with tin in the name (I took my husband to the iron bridge for our iron anniversary)' thestrawberryfountain.com
'What about a subscription to love drop box!! It's a couples subscription box, certainly be something different!!! I've reviewed it here' freddiesmummyuk.com
'I wrote a post on what I got for our 10 year anniversary!' Check out the post here: homeandhorizon.com
There was also the suggestion of some specific sexual favours which made me laugh out loud!
Another idea I really like for anniversary presents is the Manly Man Co's flowers for men which are edible bouquets! My brother recently received a bunch of real flowers from his girlfriend and it was the first time he had ever received them. Guess what? He loved them. Definitely need to start sending the men in our life some lovely blooms (edible and non edible!) so they don't miss out!
What did you give you partner for your 10th anniversary?
