3rd Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

Published date: 9th August 2020 | Author: Carrie O’Donnell


So, it’s been three years since you said ‘I Do’ and you’re about to celebrate your 3rd wedding anniversary but now you’re wondering what to buy your other half. We’ve done the hard work for you and found some unique and creative anniversary gifts to help inspire you.

Traditionally, the third wedding anniversary gift is leather. Leather is a flexible and durable material which represents the first three years you’ve spent together as a married couple, and any challenges you have worked through and faced together. Leather embodies all the qualities of a successful marriage; it’s flexible, strong, warm, durable and resilient.

The modern alternative for a 3rd wedding anniversary gift is crystal or glass. Crystal and glass have a special beauty and although are both fragile, they signify a maturing marriage.

We’ve put together 20 wedding anniversary gifts to help inspire you when choosing the perfect gift for your partner with both the traditional leather theme, and also the modern crystal/glass theme to inspire both you and your partner.
