The 14th anniversary gift comes in the form of the limited tooth or tusk material, Ivory. Due to the widened ban on hunting for Ivory and the harvesting of it there is a scarce supply left. As a result of supply failing to meet demand it is therefore an expensive material to purchase. If you feel the purchase of this material will not agree with your conscience then there are alternatives such as “vegetable” and “mandarin” ivory which can provide just as stunning carvings.
Ideas for Ivory Anniversary Gifts (14 Year Anniversary Gifts)
Gifts on this wedding anniversary include different ornaments and carvings of many different shapes and sizes. A large collection of the ornaments however are based on Elephants. Ivory traditionally comes from the tusk of the Elephant and this is why they are displayed in so many stunning carvings. Additionaly if your partner has a passion for music and you are willing to spend excessively then you could buy them a Piano with keys carved from Ivory.

A further alternative to buying the real thing is making the basis of your gift the colour of Ivory. This color can be used for anything from bed sheets to table cloths to clothing. Finally, if you want to be very exotic and outrageous then a trip to the Ivory Coast would make it an anniversary that would never be forgotten.
