Celebrating an anniversary is a fun and momentous event. An anniversary is a time to show your appreciation for the past, but also a desire to continue on together in the future. A 3rd anniversary is special because you’ve likely weathered both good and bad times together and this is a time to show how your love is durable through it all. So let’s dive in a bit more….
Leather traditionally represents the 3rd wedding anniversary because it’s a flexible and durable organic material. One that is used to protect, keep warm, safe and secure.
Real leather artwork that showcases your personal love story is a gift that you will be able to cherish for a lifetime together. Leather is strong and durable and represents the journey you have taken thus far. And will continue to change as you grow together through the years. Consider a custom leather Our Journey keepsake map by JW Design Studio Gifts.
Leather is traditionally the 3rd wedding anniversary gift because leather represents durability and flexibility. At 3 years of marriage, couples are typically still in the learning phase of marriage. As couple’s we’re getting used to each others quirks and idiosyncrasies. And more importantly, we’re learning how to cope with big and small issues as a team instead of individually.

Still at a loss for ideas? The symbolic meaning of the leather anniversary gift, can be engraved as a beautiful piece of art as seen below:
“Leather is durable, warm, strong, flexible, and has a sense of resiliency to it. Leather is a perfect reminder of how we have to stay flexible in order to sustain a strong marriage. As we go through changes, there are times we will have to be flexible and make compromises. Leather, just like a marriage, continually transforms over the years; it may grow softer, darker, or develop nicks and scars. These changes are what give it the character and beauty that I see in you every day”.—J.W.
