3rd Year Wedding Anniversary Gift Buying Criteria
Shopping By Theme
A popular idea for buying wedding anniversary presents is shopping by theme. Every anniversary has at least one theme directly related to this milestone. The 3rd wedding anniversary traditional theme is leather, and the modern themes are glass or crystal.
You can choose to shop for a significant gift with the theme incorporated, or you may just get a small thing – like a photo frame, keepsake, or phone cover – with this theme.
Shopping By Wants and Desires
Suppose you are not following traditional ideas like shopping by a specific year’s associated theme. In that case, you may just shop for something they want or need. Here are some ideas to consider.
Do you want them to have something to commemorate this anniversary? If so, get them a gift that says explicitly third wedding anniversary.
Do you want to highlight who they are as an individual? If so, buy presents that reflect their activities, hobbies, and skills.
Do you want them to be able to try new things? Try getting several small, varied gifts. Ideas could be perfume, jewelry, makeup, books, movies, art supplies, grilling supplies, gadgets, and more!
FAQs About 3rd Year Wedding Anniversary Gifts
What is the 3rd Wedding Anniversary Symbol?
The third-anniversary symbol is leather for the traditional theme. In recent years a modern theme of glass and crystal has also emerged. Suppose the person you are shopping for does not like genuine leather or is morally opposed to it. In that case, you can get leatherette or vegan leather items.
3rd Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas For Husband
Start with what you know about him, and then sprinkle in some traditional gifts. For instance, does he read? Watch TV? Watch Movies? Love Sports? Keep a Journal? Love taking photos? Does he like to hike, fish, or scuba dive? Start by focusing on his hobbies or even things he has said he wanted to eventually buy.
If you have tried to ask these questions to yourself and still have no ideas try some of these: cologne, aftershave, shaving kits, grilling kits, craft beer kit, electronics, movie passes, concert tickets, football or hockey tickets, gadgets, tools, clothing or a weekend away together.
3rd Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas For Wife
Your wife would really appreciate a gift that shows her how much you know about her. This includes both the things she is good at and what she loves. For instance, if your wife is a great cook, do not buy a small appliance unless you know she really wants it and she does not look at cooking as a chore. However, if she bakes for fun as often as she can, splurge on a stand mixer or some fancy measuring cups and spoons.
Pay attention to what she does for fun, and give her a present that reflects this. Or, give her something that is all about the two of you as a couple, such as his and her coffee cups, to enjoy every weekend together or board games for only two players – to promise that you will spend time with her as much as possible.
If you are unsure, she may like spa gift baskets, clothes, jewelry, makeup, housewares, or perfume.
