Third Anniversary Gift FAQs

What is the traditional 3rd anniversary gift?

Leather is the traditional gift given on a third wedding anniversary. 

Traditional 3 year anniversary gifts include leather bags, belts, gloves and wallets; these leather anniversary gifts are often given to mark three years of marriage. A more modern twist on the traditional 3 year anniversary gift would be a personalised keepsake made of leather, such as the engraved keyrings or personalised bookmarks we make at Create Gift Love.

Why is year 3 leather?

The third wedding anniversary is celebrated with a leather gift because it is a material known for its resilience and protective qualities. It’s thought that by the 3rd wedding anniversary, a relationship will have developed strength and durability (characteristics shared with leather), in contrast to the more delicate paper and cotton gifts given in the first and second years.

Leather is a natural material that ages beautifully when cared for well, and, just like each individual relationship, every hide is unique with its own history, markings and stories to tell.

What should I do for my third anniversary?

Giving your husband or wife a leather wedding anniversary gift is the most traditional way to celebrate 3 years of marriage (and if you’re looking for 3rd anniversary gift ideas, you’re in the right place!). Another way to celebrate could be a date night based on the third wedding anniversary gift themes. Why not sign yourself up for a leathercraft workshop or get inspired by the official third anniversary flower symbol with a visit to a sunflower field?
