A decade and a half of marriage is quite a feat, and this special milestone calls for a celebration. As you might know, each anniversary has a gift theme—paper for the first year, cotton for the second, leather for the third, and so on. For 15th anniversaries, the traditional material to give is crystal, which represents the sparkling love of a marriage, and the modern gift to give is a watch, to represent the time you've spent (and will continue to spend) together.
If you or one of your favorite couples has a 15th wedding anniversary coming up and you want to align with the crystal theme, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve rounded up the best gifts from every price point—including classically romantic ideas and thoughtful, unexpected options that are sure to impress.
Here, the best 15th anniversary gifts for a husband or wife.
If you’re looking for the perfect 15th anniversary gift for a whiskey lover, check out the BROTEC Whiskey Stones and Glass Set. It includes two small crystal whiskey glasses and eight whiskey stones. The stones can be frozen and used in place of ice cubes to keep bourbon cold without watering it down.
This gift set comes in a wooden box with a metal latch and has a little velvet bag for freezing the whiskey stones. The stones are guaranteed to not scratch the crystal glasses, so you'll have both keepsakes for years to come.
Are you leaning toward jewelry for a 15th anniversary wedding gift? If so, this Swarovski tennis bracelet is a great option. The sparkly crystals are set in a cup-chain bracelet measuring 6.75 inches in length with a foldover clasp. This eye-catching, minimalist piece of jewelry can be worn for both casual and more formal occasions.
Swarovski is known for high-quality, scratch-resistant crystals that give off a gorgeous glow. To take your anniversary present up a notch, you might consider adding a set of matching stud earrings or a delicate pendant necklace as well.
Framed photos make excellent anniversary presents. But for a more unexpected memorabilia option, we suggest this etched crystal portrait from Etsy shop owner CCMShop. Using 3D lasers, CCMShop can engrave any photo, image, or message into the crystal.
To order a custom keepsake, first select from five sizes, which range from 2.25 to 5.9 inches in height. Then choose whether you want an illuminating LED base. After placing your order, your engraved 3D crystal tower will ship within four business days.
If you’re on the hunt for a budget-friendly gift (or a small crystal item to supplement a non-crystal present), you might consider the JIHUI Clear Glass Crystal Ball Prism Pendant Suncatcher. You’ll get a pack of two teardrop-shaped crystal balls, each just over 1.5 inches in height. They can be hung inside near a window or almost anywhere outdoors. When sunlight hits the glass, you’ll see tiny, beautiful rainbows that dance around as the crystal balls rotate ever so slightly.
If the gift recipient loves to host, the Godinger Dublin 5-Piece Beverage Set might be the ideal 15th wedding anniversary present. It comes with a stunning crystal 52-ounce pitcher and four highball crystal glasses featuring traditional starburst cut patterns.
This classic barware set can be used to serve cocktails, ice tea, lemonade, punch, or even water. To enhance the gift, you might consider including a set of stemware, all-purpose glasses, or other serving pieces from the Godinger Dublin collection.
Wine glasses are an excellent go-to anniversary gift, no matter how long you’ve been married. This modern set of two Crystal Stemless Wine Glasses from ZAVU is engraved with the words “Together Forever” on each glass. The 22-ounce, stemless crystal glasses come in a padded box with a gift card and a gold coin, which you can engrave with your own special message.
Made from dense crystal, the wine glasses themselves are durable yet delicate. Plus, the crystal has a high refractive index of 1.7, meaning the glass reflects more light than most drinking glasses. The result is a pleasant, sparkling effect that enhances the experience of drinking wine.
If you’re willing to splurge on jewelry, you may want to get your spouse a pair of Crystal Fireball Hoop Crystal Earrings from Macy’s. These small, striking hoop earrings measure about a quarter of an inch in diameter. They’re made of 10-karat gold, each featuring a single dazzling crystal fireball bead. These earrings are simple and versatile but also effortlessly chic and elegant. They’re the perfect jewelry for adding a little sparkle to just about any outfit.
For a fancy 15th anniversary gift for him, take a look at the beautiful Bulova Men’s Ocatava Watch. This dapper analog-quartz watch is made of gold-tone stainless steel and features 308 Swarovski crystals on the band, bezel, and face. It’s also a water-resistant product, withstanding splashes and brief immersion in water.
The Ner Mitzvah Round Base Crystal Candlesticks make a perfect anniversary gift for your spouse or a couple celebrating 15 years. They feature a sleek design that’ll look elegant on a mantle or as a table centerpiece for a romantic dinner for two. The candle holders fit standard stick candles. They’re affordable, compact, and sophisticated, making them a great present on their own or as a complement to a larger gift.
Crystal is a type of glass, but it’s also a type of earth-sourced quartz. If your loved one has an appreciation for the natural world and the healing power of crystals, we recommend the Extreme Amethyst Cluster from Extreme Rocks & Fossils. Amethyst is thought to have protective energies, and this beautiful cavity rock contains a strikingly sparkly cluster of deep purple amethyst crystals. The amethyst is surrounded by basalt (volcanic rock) and weighs up to a half a pound.
These Crystal Table Lamps from Petronius are modern and sophisticated with a classic, old-fashioned flair. Each lamp features gorgeously cut crystals, which are set a round silver metal frames. When the lamps are on, the crystals refract and reflect light for a striking, opulent effect and a pleasant glow. This crystal lamp set is a perfect option for matching bedside lighting, but it also works in a living room, office, den, dining room, or entryway.
If you’re looking for a slightly unconventional 15th wedding anniversary gift, how about this Crystal Ball from Amlong Crystal? It’s made out of reconstituted quartz crystal for a 100 percent clear, flawless finish. The 5-inch crystal ball comes with a sliver pegasus stand, making it a perfect decorative accent for a bedroom, desk, bookshelf, mantle, or credenza. Also, it comes in six different colors, including clear, amber, blue, green, pink, and yellow.
The Three Posts Verdell 5-Light Statement Chandelier is an eye-catching lighting fixture featuring tons of faceted crystals. But unlike traditional chandeliers, the clean, boxy shape and iron frame offer a contemporary aesthetic.
The metal frame comes in two finishes: black-brown and chrome. During the day, the crystals refract sunlight through nearby windows, creating a pretty twinkling of rainbows. When it’s dark out, the chandelier can be switched on to provide a chic yet charming ambiance.
For a more contemporary gift option that still aligns with the 15th anniversary crystal theme, take a look at the Levoit Himalayan Salt Rock Crystal Lamp. Salt rock lamps are currently having a moment, and for good reason. This best-selling lamp is made of 100 percent pure kana Himalayan salt. It’s 10 inches high and comes in two colors: pink and pink-orange.
When the light is switched on, it gives off a warm, relaxing glow. The Salt Rock Crystal Lamp is ideal for a nightstand, desk, bathroom, yoga studio, or any space that could use tranquil ambient lighting.
