Our Guide to 15th Anniversary Gifts: Crystal Clear

August 10, 2017

 

We’ve tried to be as faithful as we can so far to the original intent of the traditional list, but with the 15th anniversary, it’s proven just a tiny bit tough. Though the type of crystal you’re really supposed to look for this year is crystal glass, otherwise known as lead glass (eek!), we’ve stretched the truth a little and included all kinds of crystals in our 15th anniversary gift guide, from quartz to Himalayan pink salt. Read on for our top crystalline picks, including jewelry, mugs, and soaps, plus one watch for our modern crew.
