Often companies will produce a box to commemorate an anniversary or special event filled with sweets, drink or biscuits. You may be able to pick up old boxes at an antique auction. Some of the older ones may go for a bit of money depending on what they are.

Luxury Biscuits

Purchase a tin of luxury biscuits for the couple. This need only be a small part of the gift. If you wish to make it bigger add a bouquet of flowers or a bottle of wine.

Facts about Tin

Tin is a very poor malleable metal which is not easily oxidized in air and resists corrosion. It is therefore used to coat other metals to prevent corrosion. Tin plated steel containers are widely used to store food.

Tin is one of the earliest metals known and was used as early as 3,500BC in bronze implements.

In 1998 the last Cornish tin mine at South Crofty near Camborne, in the UK, closed after 4000 years of mining.
