If you are not sure about what to buy, then it may be advisable to go along with the traditional meanings to anniversaries.

The tenth wedding anniversary is aluminium or tin. This one is a bit trickier, but a gift which is suitable for the kitchen might be ideal here. Gift ideas As the years go up, they gifts get better. The 15th wedding anniversary is crystal and the 20th is china. You will be able to purchase some nice quality gifts made out of either of these.
