The Complete 14th Wedding Anniversary Gift Guide: 23 Thoughtful Present Ideas

Discover the most romantic and thoughtful present ideas for celebrating 14 years of marriage with an elephant-inspired gift, or gold jewellery!

Two marble elephant tea light holders

Congratulations on celebrating your 14 year anniversary! 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 way it is sourced - plus it is banned in the UK, with good reason!

Instead show your love for elephants and nod to the tradition with an elephant-inspired 14th anniversary gift. Elephants represent loyalty and kindness so they are a lovely way to represent the years you've spent by each other's side.

Alternatively, the modern anniversary present for a 14 year wedding anniversary is gold jewellery, making the gift possibilities endless. We've helped narrow down the search with 23 thoughtful 14 year anniversary gift ideas that your partner will no doubt adore.

We've also picked out a few of the most popular presents for some speedy anniversary shopping - there's a gift to suit everyone's taste!

What is the 14 Year Wedding Anniversary?

The 14 year anniversary traditional gift is ivory, but as you wouldn't want to give that, elephant-inspired or ivory coloured presents work perfectly.
