Great gifts for third anniversary getty

The third year of marriage is a milestone of sorts. At that point, you're not really a newlywed anymore, but your marriage probably still feels pretty fresh and new.

The traditional 3rd anniversary gift is leather, symbolic in its flexible durability, much like your marriage. But crystal or glass are also common anniversary gifts because it’s beautiful but also fragile and delicate, just like love.


Whether you choose a gift of leather, glass, or something else entirely, there are plenty of fun and exciting gift options out there that your partner is sure to love.
