Third (3rd) Anniversary Gift Ideas

skye Ah, three years already? If you're like most couples, you've begun planning a family, and are ready to write a new chapter in your beautiful life-story together.  Your love is durable (like leather), and bright and perfectly shaped (like crystal).  Here are some anniversary gift ideas for the 3rd anniversary:

The traditional symbol of the Third Wedding Anniversary is Leather.

Traditional Leather Gift Ideas for a 3rd Wedding Anniversary:
  • If you live in a colder climate, a leather jacket, scarf and a pair of leather gloves is always a great idea.
  • A stylish leather sofa or ultra-comfortable leather recliner are practical gifts that will give you both many years of use.
  • Leather accessories – shoes, belts, handbags or wallets – are always welcome additions to an existing wardrobe.
  • For the business persons, a new leather brief case or desk set would be appropriate.
  • Surprise her with a new set of matched leather luggage.  Hide a pair of airline tickets in one of the zippered compartments.
  • Purchase his and hers matching leather cowboy boots and chaps and plan a Dude Ranch vacation together.
