Congratulations on celebrating 14 years of marriage! Your wedding anniversary is that special time where you can pause and really take in the amazing life you have built together.
The traditional gift to celebrate 14 years of marriage is ivory. Genuine ivory is, of course, not something that you would want to give to your loved one due to the controversial ways it can be sourced. Instead show your love for elephants and nod to the tradition with an elephant-inspired gift.
Alternatively you could choose something that is ivory in colour, making the gift possibilities endless. The modern anniversary present for a 14th anniversary is gold jewellery.
