Often glossed over in between the more popular first and fifth anniversaries, the third anniversary should not be overlooked. As a married couple, you should never miss any chance you have to celebrate your happy union. Instead, surprise your wife with one of the best 3 year anniversary gift ideas for her that shows her just how much she means to you. Here’s how.
How to Choose a 3 Year Anniversary Gift for Her
The easiest way to choose an anniversary gift that wows is to look to the theme of that year. The traditional gift for a three year anniversary is leather. Leather symbolizes the durability and flexibility of a marriage after three years. Leather has also been used to keep us warm, safe, and protected for hundreds of years. After three years, your marriage is starting to feel warm and as a safe escape from the pressures of the outside world. Leather anniversary gifts are among the most versatile because so many different products are made using leather. You could choose anything from a leather purse, wallet, belt, gloves, journal, and so much more. In fact, the possibilities are practically endless. It’s all about matching your wife’s tastes and hobbies with a leather gift she’ll appreciate.
If you can’t think of a leather gift that will make your wife happy, feel free to turn to the modern gift. The modern gift theme for a three year anniversary is crystal. Crystal is undeniably beautiful, yet still fragile. These qualities are both representative of a maturing marriage. At this stage of marriage, couples are still in the learning phase of marriage. Couples are getting used to each other’s quirks and idiosyncrasies, as well as learning to tackle issues as a team rather than individually. For the crystal theme, you could choose a crystal vase, crystal necklace, or even a raw crystal.
