After three years of marriage your relationship will be strong and durable, which is why third wedding anniversary gifts are traditionally made from leather.
Luckily, leather lends itself to some fabulous wedding anniversary gift ideas – from purses and phone accessories to luggage. However, if leather isn’t really your partner’s thing and you want something a little different you could opt for the modern third wedding anniversary gift – crystal and glass.
To help you plan the perfect present, we’ve picked some of our favourite third wedding anniversary gift ideas to inspire you.
