Cheers to three years! The 3rd anniversary is an exciting milestone in your relationship as a couple, and truly something to celebrate. Both traditional and modern guidelines for 3rd-anniversary gifting offer some fantastic options for selecting a token of your love and appreciation for your spouse.
If the traditional route is more your style, leather is an established third-anniversary gift, since it represents durability and flexibility. At this point in your marriage, you’ve been through a lot together and have undoubtedly weathered some hard times—but, as with any marriage, it’s about growing together through compromise.
On the other end of the spectrum, crystal is considered a more modern third-anniversary gift, as it represents brilliance, reflection, and fragility. However, if crystal feels a bit too formal—or if just you prefer more laid-back décor for your home—you can opt for glass pieces instead.
Read on for the best third-anniversary gifts that your spouse will absolutely love.
