Traditional 15-Year Anniversary Gifts

The traditional 15-year anniversary gift is crystal, a beautiful transparent glass that represents how well a couple knows each other after 15 years of marriage. It also shimmers and sparkles in the light, making it a fitting tribute to true love's bright and brilliant nature. While your feelings for your partner may be crystal clear, picking out a thoughtful anniversary gift for them is an excellent way to express your affection even further. Our crystal anniversary gifts cover a wide variety of options, including dazzling jewelry, whiskey tumblers, sentimental artwork and so much more.

Modern 15-Year Anniversary Gifts

If traditional anniversary gifts aren't grabbing your attention, look to the modern 15-year anniversary theme for inspiration instead. The modern gift for celebrating a decade and a half of marriage is a watch—a sentimental symbol of the time you've spent together as a couple and the many years still to come. Timepieces are great because there are so many different styles to choose from, so you're bound to find one your spouse will love. From fashionable jewelry gifts to practical fitness trackers, our list interprets the watch theme in a slew of creative ways.

Smartwatch Accessory Set

If your partner rarely leaves the house without their smartwatch, a brand new timepiece may be out of the question. Lucky for you, we've found an alternative in the form of Goldenerre's stunning accessory set. It includes a leather and gold interlinked strap that they can attach to their Apple watch and a studded bracelet they can wear with it for a chic layered look. The gift set is available in silver, yellow or rose gold and in several sizes to fit their specific watch model.

Still looking for a modern 15-year anniversary gift for him or her? A new smartwatch is an excellent choice, especially if you're married to someone who likes keeping fit. The Fitbit Charge comes with built-in GPS and a host of features that can track their heart rate, blood oxygen levels, number of steps, sleep cycle and so much more. It's compatible with both Apple and Android devices, so they can easily sync it to their phone to review their data after each workout.

Unique 15-Year Anniversary Gifts

For gifting options that go beyond the traditional and modern themes, look to the other 15-year anniversary symbols for inspiration instead. The associated color for this special occasion is red, representing a couple's deep and enduring love for one another. Thinking of giving fresh blooms as part of your gift? The 15-year anniversary flower is the rose, which is synonymous with good old-fashioned romance. Rubies are the gemstones tied to the 15th marriage milestone and are said to represent wisdom, protection and successful relationships. Even if you want to skip the themed presents, you'll find alternative 15-year anniversary gifts for your wife or husband below.
