Leather was the first type of material ever created and it is still used today because it keeps you warm, plus it's strong, pliable and can be molded and shaped into many different forms. In much the same way, a marriage that is celebrating a third anniversary is considered to have weathered the storms.
3rd wedding anniversary gifts of leather could be a bit costly on the pocket, but if it's well thought out, it could last a lifetime. Leather briefcases, jackets and leather bound antique books can be bought for men. Women would enjoy a pair of leather gloves or boots, leather bound telephone books, bibles or a scrapbook. Perhaps the most unusual gift would be a portrait burnt into leather that could be framed and hung over the bed.
Ever wonder where your mom got all those crystal ornaments displayed in that antique show case? Well, now you know that most of those precious treasures that are dusted every week without fail were probably given to her on her third anniversary as 3rd wedding anniversary gifts.
The reflection of the light that plays across the glassware is a symbol of fruitful happiness that the couple spreads into the lives of others, as well as reminds the couple of the dazzle and sparkle they share with each other. There is a huge range of crystal cut glassware that can be given to a couple to use to decorate the table on special occasions; they come in all shapes and sizes, from serving bowls to wine glasses, not to mention the new, innovative designer jewelry and ornaments available for you to choose from.
Another interesting 3rd wedding anniversary gift is to give a butterfly carved in jade gemstone, as the jade is the traditional gemstone for this anniversary. There is a Chinese legend that tells the story of a young man who wanders into the garden of a wealthy Chinese mandarin looking for a multi colored butterfly, and instead of being punished, he ends up marrying the mandarin's daughter. Based on this legend, the butterfly carved in jade is meant to bring wealth and love to whoever owns it.
How about 3rd wedding anniversary gift ideas for gardening enthusiasts? Make up a planting basket with a medium sized flower pot, adding a small bag of potting soil and fertilizer, sunflower and fuchsia seeds or small plants, then round it off with a pair of leather gardening gloves and a small gardening fork. Wrap it altogether with cellophane and a huge bow then add a personalized card for the perfect gift.
If your budget allows, you can also give your loved one jewelry with pieces of jade and pearl in. A favorite is to buy a charm bracelet and have a new charm for every anniversary added to it. This gift works well as you can have charms made out of the gem stones or simply have them molded into the traditional flower for that year's anniversary.
Spend your third anniversary rewarding your loved one for the time, fun and enjoyment of working towards a happy, fulfilled and contented marriage.
