Opt for a Traditional Third Wedding Anniversary Gift for Parents
While leather may not, at first thought, be a very exciting gift to give your loved ones on this special day, it is important to understand the meaning and significance of this material. Leather has, from ancient times, been used for protection, warmth and shelter. Worn as clothing to keep out the harsh winds and used to make tents to protect the occupants from winter weather, leather represents security. Giving a gift made of leather to your parents on this special day reminds the couple to continue to provide a safe place for the other and to guard them with their love and care as a haven from the problems of the outside world. There are many wonderful leather gifts that you can give your parents on their 3rd wedding anniversary. A leather photograph frame showcasing an image of the happy pair together, perhaps on their wedding day, is a special reminder of this wonderful time. Alternatively, some lovely home décor items, such as a leather cushion is sure to be an appreciation present. An extravagant, yet appropriate 3rd anniversary gift for him is a stylish leather jacket, or for a lower budget alternative, a leather belt or wallet. For a third wedding anniversary gift for her, a gift voucher for a quality shoe store would be a great choice, or for those who can’t afford such a luxurious present, an attractive new purse or handbag.
