Third Anniversary Gifts: Leather

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We started our anniversary celebrations early (3 years this Wednesday!) with Friday night Mexican dinner, some golf on Saturday, and kickball, brunch, and football-watching on Sunday.  Every year, I love sharing inspiration for traditional wedding gifts.  
Here are my links to year one (paper) and year two (cotton).  Year three is leather, and we stretched this one a little bit with our new driveway addition of a golf cart.  It has leather seats, right?!  Well, we decided that was our gift to each other for the year (even though I had already bought Mike a little something else), and I'm so glad we did!  So because we already did gifts, I don't have to worry about spoiling mine to him (yes, he reads my blog - haha!), I thought I'd share my ideas ahead of our anniversary.
1. Coasters: We collect leather coasters from different breweries we travel to.  A fun idea would be to stash one away each time you go to a different brewery and tie them all together for one gift on your anniversary.

2. Anchor bracelet: I love gray leather!  You could go with something cheesy about being the "anchor" in your life ;)

3. Earrings: Every lady loves some jewelry, and how unique is this rose gold leather?!

4. Trinket tray: These are so versatile and we can personalized with your wedding vows.  Perfect mix of sentimental and practical.

5. His and hers watches: I gave Mike a watch as a wedding gift, but if I hadn't (and honestly I almost forgot I did), I would have gone with a watch as a gift.  I love that many can be engraved on the back, too.

6. Passport cover: This would be a great little gift to go with the traditional theme, then you could go over the top and surprise your significant with tickets somewhere awesome inside!

7. Luggage tag: Same idea as above!  Why not plan a fun trip for the two of you.

8. La-Z-Boy recliner: When Mike first said he wanted a La-Z-Boy, I seriously rolled my eyes because I thought they were all old man-looking chair.  Well, we got an awesome navy blue leather chair with a brushed nickel handle, and it's SO comfortable!

9. Golf scorecard holder: Like 6 months ago, I actually bought Mike one of these to save for our anniversary, so I did give him something other than our golf cart.  This Etsy shop is fantastic and can personalize the scorecard holders with different colors and/or embossing the leather with names or initials.  I guess he liked it because he shared it on Insta, and he never posts on social media - haha!

10. Coffee sleeve duo: Gifts you buy for someone else where you also get something for yourself are the best!  This would be awesome to keep in my purse, along with my beer koozie.

There you have it!  Anyone else have leather ideas for me to add to my list?

Happy anniversary! We haven't done traditional gifts for our anniversaries but I love the his and hers watches. I've always wanted a white watch. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

So many good ideas when it comes to leather. I love a good leather journal.

We love doing the traditional gifts too. Leather and paper were good ones. We're hitting 4 years in a few days so will have to get creative with getting a flower gift for a guy
