Third Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas

If you’re hitting the three-year-married milestone, you may be wondering – are you officially a newlywed still? Maybe technically not, but if you want that title – own it! Anyway, today I thought I’d share some gift ideas for your third wedding anniversary.  There’s some presents for him, and presents for her – so have a browse!

Present ideas for your 3rd wedding anniversary

The typical present for your third wedding anniversary is leather – that’s consistent with both the US and UK versions of the wedding gift list.  Click on the images below to find out more information or to purchase. Lots of the suggestions are personalised, so will take a little time to arrive – so get in early.

Third wedding anniversary gifts for him – what to buy the man in your life

I found our 3rd wedding anniversary really hard to by for – what on earth could I get Craig? I settled on a leather gun strap – he’s a huge hunting and firearms fan, and really appreciates practical, useful presents.

A monogrammed leather toiletries bag could be the perfect gift idea too. If you’re relatively young, he’s probably still carting around his toothbrush and man-stuff in a canvas bag his mum bought through Avon, so upgrading to something a bit more grown up and masculine would be appreciated.

For a jet setting husband, a travel tag helps identify his luggage and is a reminder of you whilst away from home. This example includes a beautiful vine personalised with your monogram.

If you’re into your first home and slowly upgrading from the “hand me down” stage to “actual grown ups who visit Mitre 10” then these leather coasters that are engraved with your names, initial and wedding year would be a thoughtful present.

Third wedding anniversary gifts for her

This gorgeous rose is actually made from leather! If your wife loves flowers, give her one that’ll never wilt (just like your love for her, waaa)


Is your partner an avid reader? These personalised leather bookmarks and a novel from her favourite author could be a thoughtful present idea for your third wedding anniversary.

A personalised diary or journal might just be the ticket to her heart… I love this one

I’ll let you in on a secret. A photo collage is the way to a woman’s heart. Every. Time. So this big “three” is the perfect expression of your love (“see honey, I know how many years we’ve been married”). While not leather, it’s a lovely idea, can incorporate pictures from your first three years of marriage…and might be a better idea than leather if your partner is vegan 😉

Reflect on your wedding day…

I Still Do Marriage Journal

Perfectly matching the “little white book”, the sequel  is the ‘I still do’ diary. It is a beautiful and unique anniversary journal made up of thoughtful prompts and questions to reflect on your wedding and your marriage, while setting goals for the future. ‘I still do’ encourages meaningful conversations between couples, helps them celebrate their marriage; and creates a special keepsake and memory book.
