8. Leather Jacket

Another retro blast from the past that's made a comeback is the leather jacket. But did it ever actually go out of fashion? It's the very definition of cool since the days of Grease.

There are lots of options to choose from too when it comes to leather jackets. You can get so many different colours and styles, ranging from classic to modern and daring. There's something to suit any style.

You can't go wrong with a classic brown or black. But if your partner is more daring, colours range from bright reds and oranges to lime green. And pretty much every other colour in the rainbow.

Remember to pick quality though. The strength and quality of the material are going to make all the difference in a leather jacket. You don't want something that looks like the bees-knees but falls apart in a few wears. You want something that will age well, is durable, and lasts your partner a lifetime, like your love for them.

9. Matching Leather Bracelets

This is a great choice for those love birds looking for leather anniversary gifts for a couple. And it's especially sweet and full of sentiment as it's a gift that you and your partner can wear all the time.

You'll always have something on you to remind you of each other. As long as you're both wearing it, you'll always think of each other and your love. This is also one of the main ideas behind your wedding rings.

Whether you went for wedding rings or not, matching leather bracelets are a more casual item. They'll go with most everyday looks. They're a great accessory to use to spice up your wardrobe if you're looking for that extra, stylish touch.

Unlike a jacket or a shirt, you can also wear them pretty much daily. They'll act as a constant reminder of your love.

Given their wider, large size you can have them embossed and personalised in more detail. You can have your initials, your partner's name, or even a personalised message or image. This adds extra, personal meaning and makes for the perfect, unique gift.

There are also a variety of leather types, styles, designs, colours, and patterns too. You'll be sure to find options to suit every taste and personal preference.

You may want something bold and ornate that stands out from the crowd. Or, you might want something strong, plain, and simple. Something timeless, classic and won't ever look too much or out of fashion.

You could even go for a leather cuff to add a touch of historical, fantasy flare if that is your partner's passion. They're thicker can go over a long-sleeved shirt, or around bare wrists. It's sure to add some personality to any attire. So, let your creative, wild side out to make the perfect gift that sums up your love for each other.

10. Leather Earrings

Third-anniversary gifts should be as special as any other anniversary. One of the best leather anniversary gifts for her is a gorgeous pair of leather earrings.

It's sure to be a surprise, as most people don't associate leather with earrings. What better way is there to show her the depth of your love, without being predictable.

Leather isn't the typical material used for making earrings. You're more likely to see it used for bracelets and necklaces. The fact it isn't often used is a reason to pick it though; these earrings will be a real statement piece for your partner. They're sure to start a conversation and earn compliments wherever your partner goes.

There are plenty of options to choose from too, to suit any style. If your partner prefers a natural, rustic look then stick with a classic brown. Using a simple pattern will show off the leather's natural beauty.

For those who love something bolder, there is a variety of colour choices out there - reds, pinks, greens, blues and yellows, any colour you can think of. Paired with fine metalwork in silvers and golds, these earrings are as bold as they are beautiful. This is a gift that will warm the heart of any jewellery lover.
