A third anniversary is a special milestone. You and your sweetheart have been married for three years and have now really hit your stride. The first year of marriage consists of just figuring things out, and the second is spent working out the kinks. But, by the third anniversary, your union has shown the test of time and your bond is much stronger. Be sure to take some time to celebrate this special milestone with a thoughtful gift and some time spent with your loved one. Here’s how to choose a third anniversary gift for your partner.
How to Choose a Third Anniversary Gift
The traditional gift for a third anniversary is leather. This material represents the durability of your marriage, but also the flexibility it depends on. You know by now that compromise is the name of the game when it comes to marriage. Leather is the perfect representation of this trait. You can find any number of leather gifts, including a watch, belt, jacket, purse, or even wall art.
If your sweetheart isn’t into leather, don’t worry. The modern gift for a three year anniversary is crystal. As with leather, when it comes to this theme, anything crystal goes. Consider crystal cufflinks or crystal stemware. Or, choose natural agate crystal for a unique take.
On the other hand, you don’t have to choose a “themed” gift at all. Feel free to choose a gift that you know your sweetheart would enjoy regardless of the theme. Consider a tasty food gift that she’ll love to indulge in. Or, choose something that she can use to make her favorite hobby even more enjoyable.
