........10th wedding anniversary next week? The gift lists say tin or aluminium and I'm stumped. I'd like to get him something really nice (although im sure he'd appreciate a few tinnies grin). We are in oz btw so preferably something online. Tia.

My DH thought he was being super original buying me a Tin Tin book,Tshirt and tray.
I would have preferred a tin of beer TBH.

What about something made of pewter, a variation of tin?

So what is he into?

Aluminium alloy golf clubs? An aluminium fishing rod?

Ooh, like the sound of the fishing rod! And I might leave the pewter idea lying around for him to me - can imagine getting a few tins of XXXX, which would be great. If I wasn't six months pg grin

Planes are made of aluminium (I think) so what about a flying lesson?

Get him FIFA and box of tinnies. Sorted.

Best Anniversary Ever.

I found a vintage toffee tin in an antiques shop and used it as the box for some lovely cuff links (DH wears them all week for work). Could you do something similar, use a tin to house something he would appreciate?

Yanbu and you can put the full question in the thread title. And also this is a chat question.

In oz? It surely has to be...a tinnie!

I'm just gobsmacked that anyone sticks to the paper, tin, or whatever for anniversaries - I'd far rather have concert tickets or something than the "proper" gift.

A silver, engraved 'love heart sweet'- dh keeps his in his wallet

He bought me a silver 'last rolo' that was engraved.

Not aluminium or tin but a silver colour at least!

I got DH some tin can shaped cufflinks made of tin, from South Crofty Mine, a Cornish Tin mine. They do a range of jewellery and stuff for men and women. Goggle "south crofty jewellery".
