Steel Gifts for Your 11th Wedding Anniversary
Celebrate eleven wonderful years as husband and wife with a gift made of this traditional material.
If there's anything that 11 years of marriage has taught you, it's that your relationship is stronger than you ever thought it would be. Whether you're raising your children, supporting each other through career changes, or navigating a big move, there's a lot of life happening around you—and you two have stuck together through it all. A marriage that rock-solid deserves to be celebrated with a gift that's nearly as strong. That's why it makes perfect sense that the year's traditional wedding anniversary gift is made of steel. Don't think there are items luxe or special enough to match the occasion? Think again.
We've curated an elevated list of anniversary-worthy steel presents that's sure to impress your longtime partner. Have they developed a passion for collecting rare wines? A tried-and-true compact wine cellar is a winning choice—as is an infallible bottle opener that'll be there when it's time to uncork something special. If caffeine is more their drink of choice, you can't go wrong with an at-home latte machine and a set of sleek espresso cups that are sure to make your breakfast coffee dates even better (we're all for presents that benefit the both of you!). Of course, we haven't forgotten your favorite cook. Gift them new pots and pans (and a new cheese knife!) to make their culinary process even smoother. Pair new supplies with a new silverware set that'll make eating even more enjoyable.
These thoughtful, next-level items do more than pay homage to your 11-year-long relationship. They'll delight the love of your life, whatever they're into. Click through to discover the best steel anniversary gifts that'll make you spouse of the year.
