August 17th will be my 3rd wedding anniversary to my tall leggy blonde I met in South Korea so many moons ago. Our first year of marriage was spend apart since he was deployed to Afghanistan, so wedding anniversaries are a special time for us. Last year was kinda like our first official anniversary together, so when I came home from work I was really surprised. My hubby bought me flowers, lit candles and had my anniversary gift on the dinner table.
My gift was 2 big fluffy cotton beach towels. Now I know what you’re thinking “beach towels? Seriously?” but for me it was the sweetest gift ever. A) because we were going to the Bahamas the following month for two weeks and 2) because he said “it’s our second anniversary, it’s the cotton anniversary”. I had no idea what that meant but since he put some genuine thought into my gift, I loved it even more.
Turns out each anniversary has its’ own appropriate gifts you should give each other to celebrate your wedded bliss. First year is paper, second cotton and third you guessed it, the leather anniversary.
While thinking of “leather” things to get my hubby (and yea you can think of FUN things too lol) I came across a few ideas I wanted to share with you. Especially you newly weds looking to change things up with fresh new gift ideas.
Leather jackets anyone? These jackets are so sexy how can you not want one? Not matching completely but enough that you can have that special bond over some sexy leather. These Danier leather jackets are kinda pricey but sooo worth it!
Leather band watches. These Tommy Hilfiger leather band watches from Nordstrom can be a great way to extend the bond from the wedding bands to the leather bands! *cheesyyy* I know, but aren’t we all? lol
Who said leather bags were just for women? If your spouse travels a lot and lugs around a laptop or itablet lol this is a great gift idea. Bags from Danier
For those looking to stay within a reasonable budget, these Danier leather wallets are always a great gift for updating your money holder 😉
Now on to what Patty wants :
What hubby wants:
The Vreta leather chair from Ikea. Hmm how could I possibly hide that? lol
I did go on the hunt for his anniversary gift and got something I know he’s gonna love. You’ll have to wait for my post anniversary blog to see what it was and his reaction 😉
Oh and my hubby for thinking outside the box when it came to anniversary gifts. My turn to do the genuine thinking 😉
