3rd Anniversary Gift Ideas

Traditional 3rd Anniversary Theme for Gifts: Leather

In historical times, leather was used for protection and to cover from poor weather. When given on the third anniversary, leather holds a symbolism of warmth and provision of shelter, signifying the way in which a couple will protect and provide stability for each other.

Traditional Anniversary Gift Suggestions

  • Leather-covered journal, photo album, diary etc.
  • Leather accessories (gloves, cap, jacket, belt, shoes)
  • Leather case or briefcase
  • Leather passport-holder, handbag, wallet etc.


Modern 3rd Anniversary Theme for Gifts: Glass or Crystal

With its dazzling beauty as light reflects from its surface, crystal reminds the pair of the way in which they can be an inspiration to others when they work in tandem. As both crystal and glass are fragile, so is a marriage, and on the occasion of the third anniversary, the couple are reminded never to take each other for granted and to handle their union carefully.
