Leather Gift Ideas to Celebrate Your Third Wedding Anniversary

Today marks my 3rd wedding anniversary with Mr. Finn. In a way it feels like our wedding was only yesterday, but it also feels like we have been husband and wife for as long as I can remember. I can’t imagine my life with anyone else by my side and I could gush for an entire blog post about how I keep falling harder and harder for that man. Sigh.

But today we’re not going to get into the mushy-gushy stuff. Instead, let’s chat all about the gift giving aspect of anniversaries. Both Bridget & I have chatted about our wedding anniversary gifts for years 1 and 2, and today I’m here to chat about wedding anniversary number 3!

The traditional gift for the 3rd wedding anniversary is leather (the modern gift is crystal…but we both go by the traditional gift each year). At first thought…that’s a pretty tough theme for a gift. And of course my mind immediately goes into the gutter to think about risqué leather gifts. Oh boy! But don’t worry…all of my gift ideas today are PG.

Finn and I actually decided to treat one another to a leather gift while in Italy, each purchasing new leather jackets! Since Florence is known for their leather goods, we figured it was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary together!

Some of you guys saw my new jacket in our Insta Story fashion show (which was a hoot!), but if not here’s a photo of my gorgeous new leather jacket. I’ve always wanted a brown leather jacket and I’m already getting a lot of use out of it this fall.

But if you are not heading to Florence anytime soon, I have a list of other leather anniversary gifts that might be perfect for your partner.

3rd Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

Leather Passport Cover

A great gift for the couple that loves to travel. Or this gorgeous passport cover could be a nice hint that you want to celebrate year 4 with a big vacation. Wink wink!

Classic Leather Belt

Belts are staples for a classic wardrobe. Treat him to a high-quality leather belt that he will wear everyday!

Brown Leather Boots

Finn actually just purchased these exact boots for fall, so that makes me think these could be a winner for your guy! My guess is your hubby could get a lot of use out of a classic boot like this one.

Rejuvenation Cognac Bench

This could definitely be a joint present for you both! Why not buy something gorgeous for your home or master bedroom? While this bench is pricey, we can vouch that the leather is buttery-soft and complete perfection.

Black Leather Strap Watch

I actually purchased Finn a nice watch for our wedding that he still wears till this day. But a more casual watch (like this black strapped one) would be a nice addition to his growing collection.

Monogrammed Jewelry Box

We each have leather jewelry boxes from Pottery Barn that hold special objects and pieces of jewelry. Mine has a note from our wedding day, my handkerchief, and some of the jewelry I wore on my wedding day! A monogrammed box like this could make for the perfect anniversary gift.

Leather Briefcase

A quality briefcase is an investment, but it’s a functional piece that your significant other could use every single day. This Frye briefcase is stunning.
