Bean Box

Fourteen years of marriage is a major accomplishment. You've stood by your partner's side for as long as it took Mount Rushmore to be sculpted, and that definitely calls for some celebrating! If you're on the hunt for anniversary gift ideas to mark this major marital milestone, we've got you covered. 

While the traditional gift of ivory is no longer a good option, there are plenty of other great 14th wedding anniversary gift ideas out there. So, whether you're looking for a way to say "I love you" to your spouse or want to congratulate a happy couple in your life, read on for some of our favorite present picks. 

What is a traditional 14-year anniversary gift? 

Historically, the traditional 14th-anniversary gift is real ivory, which is banned in the United States (and much of the world) due to the devastating effects ivory trade practices have on the elephant population. However, that doesn't mean you have to discount ivory gifts altogether, as it's still a beautiful color you can use when selecting a gift—you can also consider taking a twist on the ivory theme to incorporate gifts that honor elephants instead. 

Luckily, the modern 14th wedding anniversary gift theme—gold jewelry—offers options aplenty. Even more inspiration can be found in the anniversary's gorgeous gemstone, the lovely opal, or its flower, the fabulous orchid.  

The Best 14-Year Anniversary Gifts

While this anniversary presents a bit of a problem when it comes to traditional gifts, there are plenty of other great keepsakes worthy of celebrating 14 years of marriage. We've rounded up a wide variety of anniversary gift ideas that include a mix of modern and traditional presents, those that incorporate the year's flower and gemstone, and alternatives that make unique gifts for any couple, any time.
