After three years of marriage, your relationship should be strong and durable – like leather! This is why third wedding anniversary gifts are traditionally leather. If you want to follow the traditional wedding anniversary gifts, give your partner a leather gift. If leather just isn’t your thing then you could go for the modern alternative - crystal and glass.
To help you plan the perfect celebration, we’ve picked out some of our favourite third anniversary wedding gift ideas to inspire you.

Candle Gift Set - Molton Brown
Ok we’re cheating a little bit here because this gift isn’t actually made of leather BUT it is Molton Brown so we’re making an exception. This gorgeous gift set includes foaming bubble bath and a candle, we think if you buy this gift for your partner then it’s basically the law that you also have to run them a bubble bath.
