15th Wedding Anniversary Gift Guide: Traditional & Modern Gift Ideas

Our 15th wedding anniversary gift guide is packed full of ideas to celebrate 15 years of marriage with the traditional gift of crystal or the modern gift of a watch

Crystal embellished Champagne flutes

If you or someone you know is about to celebrate a15th wedding anniversary, congratulations are most definitely in order.

The traditional 15th wedding anniversary gift for this marriage milestone is crystal. However, if you’d prefer to go with a modern alternative, a watch is the suggested gift for this anniversary. After all, 15 years is a long time and what better way to nod to that than with a watch?

"I love the idea of offering two crystal Champagne glasses and a bottle of your spouse's favourite Champagne," says gifting expert Elisabeth Noel Jones of GiftMeChic. "Alternatively, a crystal geode is a modern and spiritual way to incorporate crystal into your life. No matter what, thinking what will resonate the most with your spouse is the most important as you know them better than anyone after 15 years!"
