15th wedding anniversary gift-giving tips

Giving anniversary gifts is an exciting time for the couple and their loved ones. The 15-year anniversary a huge milestone as the couple inches in on the 20-year mark, so it’s important to make some time to think about the type of gift you should give.

Generally, the gifts should be appropriate for the year that is being celebrated and in this case, you might want to consider getting crystal gifts or a nice watch. While those are the official gifts, you can bet that others are also thinking of them which means you might need to be a bit more creative in your pursuits for the perfect anniversary gift.

You’ll want to give a gift that stands out, so it’s also good to remember the gifts you’ve presented in the past. Repeating gifts is tacky and indicates a lack of seriousness as far as the whole idea of giving anniversary gifts is concerned.

Take your time researching and plan for the gift. You want to buy a gift that will be memorable. Last-minute shopping spoils the experience and you’ll only end up being forced to compromise. It’s also important to think about both partners.

15th wedding anniversary gift ideas

A good gift is one that is thoughtful and useful. There’s nothing worse than a gift that seems to have been prepared in a hurry unless it’s a useless gift. You therefore need to be crafty and creative.

First, decide if you’re going for the modern or the traditional theme. If you decide to go with the modem watch theme, you have to be creative. It helps to think about the type of watch you’re going to buy because remember – one can only have so many wrist watches.

Some great watch ideas include a heart rate monitor fitness watches if the couple work out, GPS watches, or even a wall clock for the home. In fact, with a clock, you don’t even have to buy two gifts! If you go with the traditional theme you’re in luck as there are countless crystal items you can work with. These could be jewellery, utensils, mirrors, vases and many more.

Remember: you don’t have to be limited by the official gifts and can branch out to gift an experience instead.

This could be tickets to the destination where the couple were married, or a vacation. His or her gifts are thoughtful and cute. These can be watches, mugs, pillows etc.

Frames are a good gift and it’s hard to find a picture frame that’s hardly being used. You can also go contemporary and buy digital frames, which are fantastic because you can create slideshows of multiple pictures with them.

Flowers are also fantastic and easy. We recommend you find out which flower symbolises the 15th year in marriage for this. You could also accompany the flowers with a clear or crystal vase to suit the occasion.

Tips to choosing 15th wedding anniversary gifts

When choosing gifts for the 15th anniversary, the first consideration is the couple. This means that you must consider their likes, taste and personality. While it’s the thought that counts, you don’t want to buy a cheap watch that’ll hardly be worn. Instead, you may wish to buy something more valuable - not by monetary standards, but by sentimentality.

Our second tip is to look for a gift that’s unique and personalised. Commissioning a work of art is a good idea. You could get an artist to draw or paint a portrait of the couple. This is something that will, without a doubt, be valued forever and one that will create many discussions. Every time the couple looks on the artwork, they will remember you. Familiarise yourself with the couple’s personal and religious beliefs to avoid buying an item that they cannot accept.

Unless you’re buying a gift for a close family or friend, we suggest you consult one or both parties. If that feels a little too personal, talk to people who are close to them for ideas on what would be appropriate.

Top retailers for 15th wedding anniversary gift

Buying a gift for the 15th anniversary doesn’t need to be complicated. It helps if you already know the traditional and modern gifts for the year as they will help you choose accordingly.

That said, those should not now nor ever be your ultimate guidelines while shopping. You want to buy a gift that your loved one will enjoy. It therefore makes no sense to buy a watch if the person you’re gifting isn’t inclined toward wearing watches.

Creativity will go a long way and you’ll soon learn there is no shortage of gift ideas which you can work with for this special celebration. Have a look at finder.com.au’s picks for the perfect gift, or what could inspire your onto the perfect gift.
