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. 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 14th anniversary is gold jewellery, making the gift possibilities endless. We've helped narrow down the search with 29 thoughtful gift ideas that your partner will no doubt adore.
