Did you know leather anniversary gifts are the traditional option for the 3rd anniversary?
Anniversary gifts can be tricky–should they be aimed at one spouse or applicable to both? As the Two Drifters approached the third anniversary of our wedding, we started thinking about the myriad possibilities to commemorate this, our third year as a married couple.
We’ve done some digging, and it turns out there are a world of options out there for anniversary gifts. Since the traditional theme of the third anniversary is leather, we have assembled a list of 18 possible leather items to give to your partner.
Many of them you will enjoy as well. So dig in with us and have fun shopping! Also, congratulations!
Psst! Check out the whole list of traditional anniversary gifts by year.
