Three years have ​flown by and it ​likely feels like a lifetime. I should know, my third year anniversary was this year and I absolutely loved it.

​The honeymoon period ​may have lost its luster by now, but who says ​time has to go away for good? The third anniversary can be an excellent opportunity to extend ​your post-wedding glow just a little bit longer.

I bet you've accomplish a lot together, and now ​it is important to take the day and reminisces about all the wonderful times that have passed. Enjoy the day and evening together. If there is room in ​your budget, ​buy your sweetie a little something special.

Let's jump right in and find out what the 3rd anniversary theme is all about as well as inspire you with ​our roundup of gifts. 


What’s the Traditional First Year Anniversary Gift?

At this point in ​your marriage, you'll be aware of the durability of your relationship. ​Habits and patterns formed early in the relationship ​are solidified. It is also the time in ​a relationship where couples appreciate the security that ​a long lived bond provides -- knowing a lot about each other and being at ease with ​anything that comes your way.

​Perhaps that is why the traditionally the 3rd wedding anniversary gift in the US is leather. Leather is a material that is strong, flexible, and very durable.  ​A resilient and rugged material that reaffirms how much you value ​your life partner.

8 Leather Anniversary Gifts For Her

1. Leather Ballet Flats

My ​most favorite leather gift to give (along with Oprah) has to be a pair of tieks.  If your lady didn't ​wear them on ​her big day, now is a good time to gift a pair. Made of the finest Italian leather, and taking 3 days and over 150 steps to make one pair, these leather shoes ​are the perfect flats to wear all day, every day.

If your budget is a little smaller and you just want to give a token leather gift, think about leather jewelry. There are all sorts ​to wade through, but we love these cute double layered metallic leather leaf earrings in shades of gold.

Any interior designer lovers out there?

We had one of these leather ottoman's growing up and I still remember it as a comforting companion for my feet.

5. Leather Designer Handbag

From Michael Kors, Coach, and Kate Spade to Tory Burch and Rebecca Minkoff, a leather designer handbag is not only a practical gift it is very functional as well.

It's your 3rd anniversary -- kind of a big deal. Surprise her by ​spending a little extra and splurge on ​that dream leather hand bag.
