Every wedding anniversary is a milestone in your relationship. Completing 15 years of wedded bliss is a laudable feat in this day of short-term marriages. On your 15th wedding anniversary you can gift your husband any number of things that he likes or wants. It can range from a set of golf clubs, to a brand of wine that will complete his collection at your home bar, to even that really expensive set of cuff links for his formal wear. But the 15th anniversary is also a great time for an extra special gift for your husband. And so you can think of adding something truly from the heart as well.
If you want to go the traditional way – the 15th anniversary gift has to be something made in crystal. If your husband’s study table could do with some sprucing up, then a personalized crystal clock with an engraving of your names and wedding date would do nice. Also a crystal frame with your wedding photo or even a collage of your special day would add character to your husband’s work space.
Another interesting idea will be to get a beveled crystal frame which can hold a photograph at one end with some empty space for engraving right next to it. You could use this space for those special wedding vows you may have written for your husband on the day of your marriage.
A watch also makes for a great 15th anniversary present. Personalizing any gift with some words or a picture is a great way to mark the special occasion on which it is presented. Though crystal is representative of the 15th anniversary, it is today also acceptable to present glass. Any of these gifts can also be thought of in the glass form.
Your 15th anniversary may also be a time when you might decide to get the family together. If it is an informal function like a family barbecue, then you could get your husband some specially designed cooking apparel. These could be T-shirts proclaiming his culinary skill, or his adeptness at the grill. It could be aprons commemorating the special occasion on which it is being worn.
For a 15th anniversary wedding gift for your husband you could also zero in on a hobby of his. If it is golf, get him that special club he has been hankering after. On the weekend after your anniversary or at a time you may deem appropriate, schedule a surprise day of golfing with his friends and let him know on your anniversary. He will be thrilled. Try and get him ringside seats to the game of his choice and tag alone to make it a fun day. If it’s not really your thing, get a like-minded game fanatic to join your husband.
If your husband loves his music, get him that sleek electric guitar he may have been pining for or branded crashes for his drum kit. For those with a taste in cigars and good spirits, you could think of a branded hip flask and a lighter set. You could get him some really expensive wine that was missing from his collection in a personalized single bottle basket. A double wine bottle tote for those outdoor picnics would be a wonderful addition to his bar accessories. Personalized crystal bottle stoppers and wine bottle accessory sets are good ideas too.
You could make the day special by gifting your husband something that has been designed for a couple. It could be platinum love bands or a holiday at your honeymoon spot. Personalize the gift in a way that only you would know how. After all you have been married for 15 years.
