Happy 3rd Anniversary!
If you’re reading this post, your 3rd wedding anniversary must be coming up. Congratulations! Did you know: the 3rd anniversary is traditionally associated with leather? Yup, that’s why they call it the “Leather Anniversary“.
Whether you are celebrating your first month of dating or your tenth year of marriage, anniversaries are an occasion that you do not want to forget. Truth be told, anniversary gifts’ buying is quite a daunting experience no matter what sex you are!
Is your 3rd wedding anniversary date closing in soon and you can’t stop wondering “What exactly do I get my spouse this year?” If you are looking for the perfect gift to honor the milestone of your 3rd anniversary for your spouse, you are in the right place.
The 3rd anniversary is often the time when couples are aware of their strongholds and the durability of their relationship. That is why, according to the “official” list of anniversary gifts, the third wedding anniversary (from a traditional perspective) calls for leather anniversary gifts or (from a modern perspective) glass/crystal gifts.
If you are the traditional type and still believe in the “Old is Gold” adage like me, then you will choose a unique leather gift over a glass/crystal gift any day. C’mon, glass/crystal is boring! It’s your 3rd wedding anniversary, not your 30th… buy a gift you know your spouse will use, love and have fun with.
While you may be uncertain about how to proceed, simply putting a little thought into your special event will go a long way to help you pick the perfect leather anniversary gift for him/her that will show them you care not only, on your third year anniversary but also in the years to come.
That said, I know that most of us do not have a clue how to narrow down a gift to buy, so we require a few gift ideas. Here are some leather anniversary gift ideas from Isle of Vintage. Give your better half a truly special leather gift on your 3rd wedding anniversary:
Leather Anniversary Gifts for Her
To start off, For a guy, you want to get her that perfect gift that reflects her style and your relationship rather than the traditional flowers or chocolates and signed card – no matter how delicious, trust me that just won’t cut it.
For you guys, on your third anniversary this year, give her something that will surprise her and remind her that you really do pay attention to those quirky things she likes. Simply, make her say “Yes” all over again. After all, be sure that she will be spoiling you too.

Leather Anniversary Gifts for Him
Unfortunately, for women shoppers, it’s a whole other ballgame. Hopefully, you want to get him a thoughtful 3rd anniversary gift that is unique without being totally random, something romantic but not corny. Sounds tricky, right? I know it’s tempting to get him something you know he really needs, but it is always best to go with something you know he really wants and he will love.
Since the third year anniversary revolves around leather. This makes it quite convenient for us. You must admit there is something intrinsically masculine about rich deep leather. Think about libraries, clubhouses, smoking rooms adorned with elegant leather chairs and accessories. Leather as a material is warm, durable, flexible, and has a strong resiliency. Notice that all these qualities help a marriage thrive? Perfect material for an anniversary gift right!
Spoil your man on your third anniversary; get him something that will hit the mark and check off all those boxes.
