What Is the Traditional 15th Anniversary Gift?

The fifteenth anniversary is a major marriage milestone that is traditionally celebrated with crystal. Crystal is glass that has been combined with other minerals that increase the strength while allowing for thinner, more intricate patterns that can refract light. Representing the strength and clarity required to achieve a long-lasting relationship, crystal is a decidedly decadent gift. And, because it is easy to engrave, you can instantly add sentimental value by choosing a personalized gift.
