Traditional 15-Year Anniversary Gifts

The traditional 15-year anniversary gift is crystal, a beautiful and transparent type of 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 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 crystal anniversary gifts aren't grabbing your attention, look to the modern 15-year anniversary theme for inspiration instead. You may be surprised to learn that the modern gift for celebrating a decade and a half of marriage is a watch. A carefully chosen timepiece is a sentimental token representative of the time you have spent together as a couple, as well as the many years still to come. Watches are great because there are so many different styles to choose from, so you're bound to find one your spouse will love. From designer wrist candy to funny faces, our list interprets the watch theme in several unique ways.

If your partner goes nuts for vintage accessories, this Casio wristwatch will take them right back to their heyday. The digital square face and gold link strap resemble styles that were absolutely everywhere in the 1980s, proving that great style (and a great watch) never really goes out of fashion.

Funny Novelty Watch

Funny novelty watch from Etsy for your 15th wedding anniversary

The round watch face displays a series of jumbled numbers and a humorous message that reads: "Who Cares? I'm Already Late." While it may not help them show up on time, it's guaranteed to make them smile, which we think is far more important.

Unique 15-Year Anniversary Gifts

For gifting options that go beyond crystal and watches, look to the other 15-year anniversary themes for inspiration, like the associated color, gemstone and flower. The romantic hue related to this special occasion is red, symbolizing the deep and enduring love a couple has for one another. Thinking of giving pretty anniversary flowers as part of your gift? The 15th anniversary bloom is the rose, which is synonymous with good old-fashioned romance. If jewelry is on your radar, rubies are the gems tied to the 15th marriage milestone, which are said to represent wisdom, protection and successful relationships. Even if you'd rather forgo the themed gifts, we can help you find something really awesome with our alternative anniversary presents.
