Full Answer

Leather is the traditional gift for a three-year anniversary as it symbolizes strength and durability. The modern gift for a third anniversary is crystal because its ability to reflect light symbolizes the manner in which the beauty of a good marriage affects those around the couple. Bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings, tie tacks or cuff links made of pearl or jade represent the gemstone for a third anniversary. A bouquet of fuchsias is also appropriate.
