15 year anniversary gift ideas for him
There’s no denying that men can be tricky to buy for – especially after a decade and a half of gift-giving. More often than not, he has everything he needs already or has a totally different idea of what classes as a ‘good gift’.
But don’t worry – we’re here to help! We’ve compiled a list of our favourite 15-year anniversary gifts for him to help you find the perfect present. Whatever you choose, it’s sure to be a sure-fire hit with hubby.
One of the more traditional 15th wedding anniversary gifts is a watch. Thought to be a symbol of the time you’ve spent together, as well as all the time you have to look forward to, a crystal-encrusted watch makes for a great 15th wedding anniversary gift.
If your man is a watch fan, you can use your 15th wedding anniversary as an excuse to splash out on a signature timepiece – it might be pricey, but hey, you only get to do your crystal wedding anniversary once! After all, there aren’t any more milestone anniversaries for another five years until your 20th wedding anniversary – plenty of time to save up again!
Crystal glasses and a bottle of his favourite booze
Perhaps he’s a neat whisky fan or a beer lover – whatever his favourite tipple, a cut crystal glass is the ideal 15-year wedding anniversary gift for him. So, whether it’s a crystal cut whisky glass and decanter or a crystal pint glass, he can use it to enjoy a glass of his favourite booze at the end of a long day – just don’t forget a bottle of the good stuff to go with it.
We can help with that part, too! From the award-winning James Eddie Scotch Whiskey to a six-pack of pale ale from Cornish brewing geniuses Firebrand, and the best bit – all our gifts will arrive with next-day delivery… just in case you need something last-minute. Whether you two are always hosting happy hour or simply like to sip together, our boozy crystal wedding anniversary gifts will make any round of drinks feel like an occasion.
Glass accessory box
If he’s already fully equipped with an expensive assortment of watches, cufflinks or other accessories, a glass accessory box would make a great 15th wedding anniversary gift. And, if you really want to go the extra mile, why not get it engraved with your names and the date you got married? That’s sure to earn you some extra brownie points.
15th wedding anniversary gifts for her
No matter how well you know your wife after 15 years, it can be hard to know what to get to make your 15th wedding anniversary extra special. After all, you’ve done this 14 times now, and your ideas might be starting to run dry!
Luckily for you, we’ve decided to give you a helping hand. We think these 15th wedding anniversary gifts for her will hit the sweet spot. If you need more ideas, make sure you go check out our other thortful gift ideas – especially useful for last-minute gifting… shh we won’t tell anyone!
A smart watch
Okay, we know what you’re thinking – a watch as a 15-year anniversary gift idea for him and her? Isn’t that cheating? It might be a bit, but a smartwatch makes the perfect 15th wedding anniversary gift for her too. Not only is a timepiece the traditional option for crystal anniversary gift-giving, but your wife’s sure to fall in love with you a little bit more.
But, here at thortful, we don’t do anything by halves – we wouldn’t stop at just giving her a smartwatch. Oh no, to take your 15th wedding anniversary gift to the next level, why not get super sweet with it?
Before giving your wife her present, set up custom reminders and alarms for random days and dates, so when she’s least expecting it, she’ll receive an alert reminding her how much you love her. Or, even cuter, you could remind her of romantic anniversaries. Think, “today is 14 years since we watched our first movie together” or “it’s been ten years since our trip to Rome”.
Whether she likes super-sparkly style or something a little more understated, crystal jewellery makes (unsurprisingly) a very appropriate and timeless 15th wedding anniversary gift for her. Incredibly versatile, able to be worn for every day or for fancy occasions, jewellery is a classic choice for any anniversary – but throw some crystal in there, and it’s the perfect 15th anniversary gift.
Cherished for years to come, a crystal bracelet, necklace or pair of earrings is an infallible option for solidifying your 15-year-long love for your missus. Whether she likes a lot of sparkle or something more subtle, there are crystal anniversary gifts to suit all tastes.
Why not consider a more naturalistic option if your wife isn’t a fan of anything too sparkly? A more naturalistic option is a raw crystal – a semi-precious stone that hasn’t been cut and faceted to make it shine. Or you could choose her birthstone or a stone that means a lot to her. Whatever type of jewellery you choose, it will surely be a crystal wedding anniversary gift that she’ll remember.
Inspire some positive vibes with a crystal candle – the perfect 15th wedding anniversary gift to bring some positive energy into your relationship. A crystal candle is a scented candle with crystals embedded in the wax for a unique and spiritual crystal anniversary gift.
If you’re stuck on where to find the perfect 15th anniversary candle for your wife, go ahead and check out our beautifully presented range of candles from NOA – stylishly-designed, naturally-scented candles, available with next-day delivery along with a card of your choice.
