Traditional 14-Year Anniversary Gifts

While the traditional 14-year anniversary is ivory, we've chosen elephant-inspired and off-white gifts instead to honor the theme more ethically. Not only is the ivory trade illegal and unethical but it's also known to have severe ecological and economic consequences. Ivory gifts originated from Hindu mythology and symbolize luck and protection, while elephants are known to develop strong, intimate bonds with each other (much like a couple celebrating 14 happy years together.) Choosing an ivory-inspired present allows you to honor the sentiment without infringing on animal rights, plus it's the perfect opportunity to get creative. Shop our favorite ivory anniversary gifts for your wife, husband or partner below.

Clever gifts always grab our attention and this multi-purpose necklace is no exception.

The letter can be customized with a thoughtful message and even includes an option for your actual handwriting. With a gift this whimsical and charming, prepare to be greeted with a few happy tears.

Unique 14-Year Anniversary Gifts

While ivory gifts and gold jewelry are the milestone's official themes, there are other 14-year anniversary symbols to turn to for inspo. The 14th anniversary flower is the dahlia, a vibrant bloom representing beauty, love and commitment, and the designated color is ivory, echoing the traditional anniversary material. Finally, opals are the official gemstones of the 14-year anniversary. These iridescent stones are believed to promote passion and romance (and who doesn't want that in a loving relationship?) If you feel like swapping tradition for something else, we've also included some cool alternatives that break the mold.

Diamond and Opal Necklace

We love gifts that incorporate more than one anniversary theme, which is why this opal necklace tops our list. It combines the 14th anniversary gemstone and the modern theme for a pretty pendant your spouse will want to show off. A small diamond and teardrop-shaped opal hangs from a 14K gold chain for an understated look they can wear any day of the week.
