    How important is the job to you? Is it something you will want to remember later in life that is a big deal to you? If so I would get something I can keep, pass down to the kids etc. like the Tiffany bracelet or frame, probably the bracelet. If not I would get something I want and can use like the Ipod or DVD player if you dont have them already. I wouldnt get a non digital camera as those are most likely on the way out and the Coach stuff doesnt personally interest me unless it is a bag.

    I'd probably go with the portable DVD player.

    Do you have any need for the ipod, camera, or portable DVD player? If I wanted any of those anyway I'd maybe take them, otherwise I'd take something Coach - probably the wristlet.

    Initiall, I was leaning towards the Ipod or the DVD player. I was waiting until chrismas to shop for a portable once since I figure prices will fall so I may as well get this one. But then friends are suggesting I get the most expensive item and then I can return it if i want to or exchange it and add some moneyinto it and get something nicer from Tiffany's. I"m still deciding. I already have an MP3 player and the shuffle is like $60 anyway so I can always pick that up if I wanted.

    dont go with an electronic gadget, it will be out dated soon. take something that will last over time.

    If you do take something with the intention of returning it, make sure to check out the store's return policy first. I don't think Tiffany's return policy is great.

    Definitely go for the portable DVD player. Watching movies in odd places can come in more handy than you would imagine.

    Pretty sure Sureshot is their digital brand. Nice company you work for!

    my thinking exactly.. which is why i voted for the tiffany bracelet..

    i received a few tiffany's items 13 years ago.. they were not my style then, but now i'm wearing them and i'm so happy i didn't return them and that i kept them..

    Shockingly, I agree with zmanz, but I can temper it with including my agreement of goldy's post. Get the Tiffany bracelet.

    Don't get the DVD player. You can find them for as low as $80 and you can play DVDs on just about every laptop so what's the point?

    I vote the Tiffany bracelet. Some of their silver bracelets aren't that expensive, but it's something that will last and remind you of this anniversary.

    you all have made some good points. things I hadn't even thought of.
    the bracelet seems to be the frontrunner. Thing is I'm not much of a bracelet wearer. I'm more of an ring and earring girl. I suppose I could exchange the bracelet for a ring.

    here's the bracelet. list price $130.

    hmm maybe I'll get the bracelet adn then exchange it for this ring which I really like.

    I would have chosen "none of the above" if you had it as a choice, as none of the listed things interests me. I chose the bracelet, just because it's the only thing that seems worthy of a 10th anniversary gift.

    I never got anything good for my first few service anniversaries. They gave you an ugly gold pin with some kind of miniscule stone like a sapphire, but so small you couldn't really see it. And the pin was only 10K. Cheese-oh.

    Later they improved. I did get a very nice gold Raymond Weil watch for one anniversary (now I have to get it fixed, but I wore it for a long time). Last time I made a big mistake and got a 35mm camera to replace my old one that broke. Of course, I never use it now since it's not digital. So, I agree with Z about not getting electronics. I'd take the bracelet.
