A decade and a half since you said “I do” is something pretty special. I hope you’re both patting yourselves on the back and looking forward to celebrating 15 special years together. This 15th year anniversary is a pretty big one, so I’m sure you’re looking forward to reminding your soul mate just how much they mean to you.
And if you’re looking for an extra thoughtful present to give your sweetheart, our guide to 15th anniversary gifts can help guide you to a sparking idea.
What is the Traditional 15th Anniversary Gift?
The traditional gift for a 15th wedding anniversary is crystal, which symbolises the clear and sparkling love the two of you have for each other. As you can see it in my go-to book – Blue Book of Social Usage by Emily Post – crystal is one of those gift ideas that was already completely cemented in the mind of society by the time the book was written in the early 20th century. Its the traditional gift choice in both the US and the UK, and I just love the inventive options with this one.
If crystal isn’t quite your thing, the good news is that anything made from glass is also fair game. That said, we’ve got plenty of great crystal gift ideas to help you get your search started.
Modern Fifteenth Anniversary Gift
Modern gift guides list wrist watches as the must have piece for this anniversary. It’s a cute option, as your sweetheart can wear it every day and be reminded of all the good times you’ve spent together.
- Rose: Give one of the most romantic flowers of all time on your 15th anniversary – roses. Go for the traditional deep red, pretty in pink, or choose yellows and peaches for a sunny combo.
- Rhodolite: This gorgeous, deep pink garnet gemstone got its name from the Greek word for rose. How perfect is that? It’s also associated with the feelings of joy and inspiration, two things I bet your sweetheart makes you feel on a regular basis.
