Ivory Gifts for Your 14th Wedding Anniversary

Kate Mathis

We love the sentimentality behind classic anniversary gifts but recognize that some ideas are more dated than others. Take the theme for the 14th wedding anniversary gift by year: ivory. Nowadays, we wouldn't recommend giving something made from the material, considering its long history of unethical sourcing. But you can still honor tradition without harming elephants—there are tons of modern alternatives. Take the color, which is incredibly versatile and used in a number of present-worthy ways. You can also consider gifting cruelty-free options, like faux-ivory. Here, we've offered up a number of contemporary suggestions.

A popular 14th-anniversary gift is bone china, due to its elegance and timelessness. Here, we've picked out one of our favorite sets. That being said, the possibilities go way beyond new place settings. We've found his and hers presents in a number of different categories and price points to help you find something suitable (and affordable). Does your spouse love to travel (when it's safe, that is)? We've included more than one ivory-colored luggage option. Does your partner love to cook? We've spotlighted ivory-themed kitchen gadgets. We've also covered additional interests—everything from music, to gardening, to fashion.

As you plan how to celebrate your 14th wedding anniversary, think about your husband or wife's personality and the nature of your relationship. After all, as with all gifts, it's really the thought that counts. That's why we've compiled a bunch of unique recommendations to help you find an item that really feels personal. Happy gifting and more importantly, congratulations—you've come such a long way since your wedding day!
