Third wedding anniversary gift ideas –
The Leather Anniversary:
Third wedding anniversary gift ideas – in my recent blog Traditional Anniversary Gifts By Year we found out the historical origins of wedding anniversary gift giving. This blog is the third in our series of wedding anniversary gift ideas.
We wanted to share some items which we think make brilliant third wedding anniversary gift ideas. We selected a number of items from small, independent businesses in the hope to inspire.
A leather hanging nest
Giving a item to brighten up an interior and give a living plant a home, we think is a really thoughtful thing. These beautifully crafted plant nests are handmade in Shropshire by Te. by Kao. A lover of good design with functionality and simple, playful twists.
She says “”Te” is the Japanese word for ‘hand’. te. by kao creates handcrafted items for home, designed and created by Kaori Okada Hood. All items are handmade. The Leather Plant Nest is made from leather offcuts in a variety of colour to complement any home. Kaori aims to create objects with handmade warmth and care that brighten your home.”
Available in a range of colours including light pastels and brilliant neons, prices from £16. MORE HERE.
A leather notebook
How about buying your loved one a beautiful leather bound notebook from Hope House Press? Perhaps you could dig out your wedding day outtakes and curate them together? Or why not begin to journal your biggest adventures together to date? Or what about all the hopes and dreams you have for the future?
These beautiful books can also be personalised. So whatever you decide your book is going to be, it’s sure to be a hit and a thoughtful one at that!
They say “Our collection of notebooks, journals and diaries feature personalised prints, inspired by modern vintage letterpress typography. Customise a book with initials, a name, or other meaningful wording, to create memorable gift.”
Available in 3 sizes and 9 colour options, prices from £48.00. MORE HERE.
A heritage leather apron
Perfect for him or for her, these Risdon & Risdon beautifully made, artisan aprons are hardwearing and versatile. Perfect for in or outdoors, gardening, cooking, making, creating and more! They also do canvas and denim versions with leather trim if you don’t fancy the full hog.
They say “Before these aprons, nothing existed to fulfill the requirements of a superior choice of apron. Our aim has always been to produce something that has style and practicality, delivered with the finest materials. They are unique in their features and are built to last.
The durability and design of our aprons makes them an outstanding item. It is for these reasons that we give our aprons a Lifetime Guarantee.”
A practical gift and who says you couldn’t do his and hers? Prices from £75. MORE HERE.
This month will also see me making new work using leather to celebrate my 10 years in business. I have set myself the challenge to make a new piece of jewellery per month for the rest of the year. Each month will be themed by the materials of the anniversaries 1-10. Do follow me on Instagram to track my journey.
