Congratulations on your 14th year as a couple. Adventures are in order this year, as well as gifts of ivory and gold. Consider new horizons for making fresh memories! Here are a few gift suggestions to get you started…
Traditional Gift Ideas… Ivory
Traditional 14th anniversary gifts are made from ivory. If your love is a musician, a piano could bring music and creativity into your home. I have played the piano for most of my life, but found a traditional piano to be too heavy and cumbersome to move, so I opted for an electric piano. The sound quality is superb, the cost was about equal to that of a traditional piano, and it never needs tuning! Of course, electrical problems become the issue. However, the music store from which I bought mine had a technician to deal with these types of problems. I have owned my piano for over three years, and have never had any technical glitches, however. The gift of music is one of the most meaningful you can give, so be sure to consider it for a musically inclined spouse.
If travel is in your future and within your budget, this ivory anniversary is the perfect excuse to go visit Africa and go on safari! What an excellent opportunity to experience something totally new together. Sometimes an escape into the unknown is exactly what we need to light up a marriage or life that has become a routine instead of an adventure.
Other more traditional ivory gifts include:
- Ivory sculptures or other artwork
- Ivory-colored home décor items like sheets, curtains, etc.
Contemporary Ideas: Gifts of Gold
Celebrate Forever with Dahlias
The 14th anniversary flower is the dahlia. This colorful bloom is available in many colors, and is stunning in bouquets. This flower is often used in celebrations of love and marriage as it symbolizes everlasting commitment. Give her dahlias to let her know that your promise will last forever.
Enjoy your 14th anniversary! Hopefully you can share in an adventure on the wild side. You only live once, and only have one 14th anniversary, so make it count. Good luck with your planning! Join me next time for year 15.
