So, you’ve pushed past the big 10-year anniversary mark and made it to 11 whole years together. Congrats! It’s a milestone worth celebrating (as is every anniversary, tbh). And what better way to express some excitement than with a gift or two? Of course, as you’ve likely figured out over the past decade, romance is about far more than presents—but that doesn’t mean the act of giving isn’t important. Treating your S.O. to a lil anniversary gift after 11 years (which is approximately 4,015 days, in case you were wondering) can help keep that spark alive going into your 12th year. At the very least, you’ll be showing your partner that you’re grateful for every second spent with ’em. That seems worth it to me!
Traditionally, the theme for an 11 year anniversary is steel. (Ya know, that tough, durable metal that’s used in construction?) It proves your love is super strong and can handle a few bumps along the way—which makes steel sound much more romantic than it actually is. Thankfully, this is also true for presents that go along with le theme. Think: watches, jewelry, and other sweet keepsakes made of reworked steel or even stainless steel (which looks v chic and still technically counts, okay?). Surprisingly enough, the number of 11th anniversary gift ideas is kinda endless.
Take a peek at 20 of the sleekest, most wonderful steel prezzies, below. Cheers to 11 years!
