Because the third wedding anniversary gives couples a feeling of resilience and durability, the traditional gift is leather. The type of leather gift is limited only by the imagination of the giver.
While there is a list of traditional gifts for each anniversary after a couple's wedding, some landmark anniversaries are actually known by the names of the types of gifts given. For instance, the 25th anniversary is known as the "silver anniversary," and the 50th anniversary is known as the "golden anniversary." Ideas for meaningful leather gifts include leather gloves, a leather handbag and a leather journal or diary. The third anniversary gift on the modern list is crystal. Some examples of crystal gifts include jewelry, figurines and sculptures.
