I am interested to know what gifts people got their husbands for their ten year wedding anniversary?
I have bought M a gorgeous pair of silver cufflinks, which will be getting engraved with his initials, but I want to know what others got their husbands/ SO?

No gifts, just went out for special dinners. Gave each other silver watches last year for number 25.

We are doing a weekend away. Only wedding anniversary gifts we got eachother were watches for our first. Otherwise we spend money on dinner and night away.
We are 10 yrs too next month.

We went on holidays. With our children LOL.
We were due for a family holiday anyway, our anniversary just coincided with it. At this time of our life, we wouldn't want to have a 'big' holiday without our children anyway.
It was the best family holiday we've ever had and was a very special time

We tend to buy something bit for the house every year and the 10th year was no different. Our wedding anniversary is also in November so it's our Christmas gift too. We don't tend to do anything else.

For 10th anniversary, we're planning to give the USA to each other, for good and have a renewal ceremony when we get there as our first five years have been a serious uphill trek.

we don't normally do gifts, but we go out for the night, and have dinner and a show normally, but considering it is always around Mardi Gras our options are limited.
This year it's a suite in the Shangri La and dinner at Mr Wong!
