More 3rd Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Him

The traditional theme when a couple celebrates three years of marriage is leather. By the third wedding anniversary, couples give each other presents made of leather to celebrate.

If you are a wife that is looking for a leather anniversary gift for her husband.

This list is divided into three ideas, something useful, something romantic, and something fun. Also, take note that this list is for presents for men.

Useful Leather Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Him

Most guys would want to receive a useful gift. You can get him one from the suggestions below:

  • A leather wallet. This is a classic gift suggestion for the third wedding anniversary and it is for a reason: men find wallets useful. Buy him a bifold wallet that does not get too thick because a thick wallet is uncomfortable to sit on.
  • A pair of leather shoes.
  • Reversible leather belt. I own a reversible belt similar to this Kenneth Cole’s reversible belt. Very sturdy.
  • A fashionable watch with a leather strap.
  • Leather bracelet. I personally like the woven leather. I used to wear these when I was dating my wife.
  • Leather backpack.
  • How about leather car seats? He will love that you know how to woo him and his car.
  • You can also buy a leather wheel cover.
  • A leather watch case.
  • A leather messenger bag.
  • Leather couch.
  • Leather slippers.

Romantic Leather Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Him

Some men would love to get romanced too! Here are some sweet leather anniversary gift ideas.

  • A leather-bound photobook of your travels.
  • Leather photo frame.
  • Get yourself a boudoir photoshoot then compile the photos in a leather-bound book.
  • A leather heart handmade card. Fairly easy to DIY, too.
  • A leather portrait of you two, on tanned leather. This is super novel and if you want a sweet leather gift, I’d recommend this one.

Fun Leather Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Him

Leather gift ideas that will make him laugh or excite him

Now have some fun with some leather!

  • A leather jacket
  • And leather pants! I can almost hear the footloose theme song!
  • A hide tanning workshop! You can learn how to tan the hides of animals to make fur and leather!
  • A leather necktie. Clearly, a leather tie is not for an office outfit. It is for casual preppy wear!
  • Water skin. This looks so authentic and makes a man feel macho (like my idol, Bear Grylls).
  • This leather-scented candle. This is especially good if he has a man cave.
  • A poker set. Poker sets are usually boxed inside a nice leather case. This gives him a new plaything he can use with the boys.
  • Football. This is a nice sporty anniversary gift for your man. Many men like sports!
  • A drinking flask with a leather exterior. You can also get the personalizable ones where you can engrave the receiver’s initials. Something like this super nice-looking leather flask from Personal Creations.
