tIf a special couple in your life has reached the milestone of their third anniversary, you may be wondering what you should give them as a meaningful gift. Although some wedding anniversary traditions are well known, such as gold for the 50th anniversary and silver for the 25th, the third anniversary is one of the less well known years.
Tradition dictates that the ideal 3rd wedding anniversary gift should be made from leather, although more modern experts say that crystal is a better choice. If you are wanting to give a symbolic 3 year anniversary gift, you could consider incorporating one of these options into your gift choice.
Traditions Behind Leather Anniversary Gifts
Many people wonder why leather has been linked with the third year of marriage. The reason behind its association is thought to be from a Russian and German tradition that says that by three years into a marriage a couple feel as though they are inside each other’s skin.
Leather is also a durable and resilient material, and after 3 years of married life, a couple will often have survived through many trials and tribulations and come out the other side successful and triumphant. Giving a leather gift to celebrate this milestone is a testament to this long-lasting and flourishing love.

Floral 3 Year Anniversary Gifts
If you would prefer to give a different style of gift for a couple’s third anniversary, you could consider giving the gift of sunflowers. These beautiful blossoms are the flower associated with the 3rd year of marriage and represent the warmth and strength that develops over 3 years of married life. A gorgeous bouquet of sunflowers is the perfect way to mark the event, and will brighten up any home in honor of the occasion.
Crystal 3 Year Anniversary Gift

Stylish crystal ornaments are a good choice, and can be found in all price brackets so even those on a low budget can afford to buy one. Crystal jewelry also makes an excellent present for a woman celebrating her 3rd anniversary.
Crystal glasses or goblets perform both a decorative and practical function, used for special occasions and displayed proudly for the rest of the year. These are an especially lavish gift when presented with a crystal decanter, and make lovely personalized items for a unique touch.
An elegant crystal vase would be much appreciated by any couple, with its functional nature and timeless beauty. It could be presented with a single sunflower or a sunflower bouquet to bring together two themes of this special day.
