Happy Third Anniversary to us! While we typically choose to celebrate our anniversaries by doing something together like a trip or a weekend getaway, I love the tradition of anniversaries being tied to certain types of gifts for the year. Paper for year one, cotton for year two and now for year three, it’s leather. This post is full of gift ideas for your guy if you happen to be celebrating the leather anniversary this year too! Most of these are tried and tested favorites of MJD’s and the ones that aren’t, well I happen to know he would love them and I am sure your hubby would too!
Clockwise from top:
Shinola Canfield Chrono Watch: This one is a serious splurge, but it’s also such a well made and handsome watch that any guy would love to have. MJD wears his all the time and I love the pop of color from the blue watch face.
Fossil Leather Messenger Bag :Every guy needs a good bag for carting his stuff to the office and back. I got one for MJD a few Christmases ago and he uses it every single day. This version is both masculine and stylish.
Manhattan Cocktail Case: This is a bit of a novelty item, but if your hubby likes Manhattans I think it would make a fun gift. The leather case contains everything you need to bring your cocktail party on the go- just add whiskey.
Ezra Arthur Leather Notebook: A great leather gift that is under $35 dollars. It’s a perfect something to celebrate the anniversary without blowing your budget.
Filson Leather Flask: For some reason I always think flasks make great gift ideas for guys 😉 This one is leather and stainless steel for a classic look wherever he takes it.
Cole Haan Chukka boot: This may be cheating because I think I’ve actually included these in a Christmas gift guide for guys before too… but these boots are perfect for fall and winter. Another gift I once gave MJD that he wears all the time.
Shinola Leather Belt: An American made classic that he will have forever, making it a perfect piece to commemorate your anniversary.
Native Union Lightning Cable Charger– If your hubby walks around with his phone battery on 15% all the time like mine does (would give me serious anxiety- how can one instagram on low battery!), this charger is a great gift as it can be used on any USB port to charge. You can let him know it’s just so you can always stay in touch 🙂
