Traditional Gift Ideas For Your Third Marriage Anniversary

Whether you lived together before your wedding, marriage still changes things. Once married, you are going to make the relationship work, whatever it takes. With this commitment comes strength, more openness and an honesty which can lead to couples being more attracted to each other than the day they were married. This makes early anniversary dates just as special as the milestone anniversaries, so here we provide a list of gifts for your 3rd wedding anniversary.

Leather gift ideas

Having celebrated your ‘paper’ and ‘cotton’ anniversaries already, the traditional gifts for your 3rd anniversary are made from a more durable material, representing the lasting nature of your marriage. As leather changes over the years, to become softer, darker and showing scars and imperfections over time, it acts as a reminder to stay flexible to sustain your wedding vows.

Vintage luggage

A vintage, oversized backpack with enough space for a laptop and several zipped pockets for necessities, means your beloved will not need another bag again. A duffel tote bag is another style option and both will look more beautiful the more they are used.

If you are going to travel in style, consider a real leather passport. These come in several colours to suit your beloved’s personal style. Add in some plane tickets for a fun adventure.

Premium Leather Cover for hand-held devices

Whether it’s a kindle, a tablet or a smartphone, a premium leather cover is one of our gift ideas that offer protection and quality.
