Crystal can be found in a variety of forms. There are crystal vases, crystal jewelry, crystal sculptures, crystal flowers, and crystal glasses. You can find hand carved crystal, personalized crystal, and crystal sets that are mass produced. You can even locate crystal chess sets.
Many people choose this as the ideal anniversary to have something personalized. For instance, you might want to consider a crystal clock with both names engraved on the base, as well as the anniversary date. The same could be done with a crystal watch.
If you're looking for something a little different when it comes to your 15th wedding anniversary, then consider a trip to an exciting destination. The Czech Republic, for instance, is known for its Bohemian crystal. Going to Prague for a week is not only a great way to spend your anniversary, but you could also come back with a lot of good buys in the crystal arena.
If the Czech Republic isn't calling to you, then think about the Waterford Crystal Factory located in Waterford, Ireland. You can take a tour of the factory, purchase some crystal, and then spend a week or two seeing the sights in Ireland. What a wonderful 15th wedding anniversary that would be.
You could take the word "crystal" in a different manner and create a trip that has nothing to do with the glass itself. For instance, Crystal Pier in San Diego offers cute little cottages right on the pier overlooking the ocean. There is also the popular Crystal Cruise Line that offers luxury cruises to a variety of destinations.
If you want to skip the traditional crystal 15th wedding anniversary gift giving ideas, then you also have glass as an option. Of course, there are many different kinds of gifts that could use glass as the backbone. A beautifully framed photograph of the two of you might be one idea. Another idea is a shadow box filled with mementos from the past 15 years together.
Glass vases filled with beautiful flowers, glass jewelry, and glass trinkets are popular as well. I had a friend design and build a sunroom onto his house for his wife as a 15th wedding anniversary gift. Since all three walls were constructed of glass, they thought that fit the bill nicely.
Crystal and glass are both considered to be strong, yet malleable. In addition, they offer reflection, which is one of the symbols behind the meaning that they carry when concerning this particular anniversary.
Regardless as to what gift you decide to give, make sure that you put a good amount of thought into it, because although glass and crystal are both very easy to find, the 15th wedding anniversary is still a big one and should be taken with some degree of importance.
