A 15 year anniversary is something to be proud of. So much can happen over a 15-year span, but you and your spouse made it through. Now, you get to celebrate this important milestone with the love of your life. Instead of getting something your spouse will expect, surprise them with a 15th anniversary gift they'll love—whether you stick to the traditional 15 year anniversary gift (crystal or watches) or get something more modern.

What Is the 15 Year Anniversary Gift?

Traditional: Crystal

Luckily, the traditional 15th wedding anniversary gift isn’t as old-fashioned or hard to incorporate as some other years. Crystal has been associated with the 15th anniversary because it represents the sparkling love between you two, and it’s clear to see by now that you're meant for each other. Crystal can come in many forms: You can give crystal jewelry, crystal home décor or even crystalized items like purses or beer mugs.

Modern: Watch

The more modern take on the 15 year anniversary gift is a watch. Honor the time you’ve spent together by gifting your loved one some new arm candy.

15 Year Anniversary Gift Ideas for Her

All anniversaries have certain elements attached to them, but we all celebrate uniquely, so it’s totally okay to forgo the 15 year wedding traditions and get your spouse something completely different for this special celebration. Whether she craves chocolate or has an addiction to accessories, here are a few gifts she'll love.

  1. Flower bouquet

    Just like this company says, flowers never go out of style. Instead of sending the typical dozen red roses, get your wife something she will love—and something that’s super Instagramable.
