Gift Idea

I was really stuck with this one, but I bought my wife a nice leather/brass key chain, and had it engraved with her initials. She didn't get a new car key to go with, but I noticed the one she had was worn. So, at least I know she'll use it.

My husband likes useful things, which sometimes makes shopping for him a bit of an issue, especially on anniversaries. This year I had a win though. I got him a Leatherman. He's a huge fan and although not actually leather I think it still works. He loved it!

The Obvious

I am about ready to celebrate our 3rd year dating anniversary, I think the best gift I could get would be some sexy leather lingerie. We both win :) At this point I don't think a wallet or belt exactly brings excitement or memories, maybe some crystal wine glasses or something shall come before the leather, to give me the confidence of course ;)

A Wedding Gown Sketch

A few wedding photos that get transformed into a sketch, which you can frame and give as an anniversary gift. MyDreamlines has this amazing gift idea ... one of their artists is from Europe so the sketches really take on sexy European feel.

Leather Gift Ideas

Hi there, For our 3rd anniversary my husband suggested that he wanted a briefcase. Again, I have spent hundreds of pounds on designer briefcases etc and all of them have scuffed and fallen apart, I found a store on-line called sage brown and cannot give enough credit to them. I hadn't heard of them before but seen they had great review so I took a stab in the dark and purchased him the http://www.sagebrown.co.uk/1-Business-Line/6-Briefcases/54-City-Briefcase/Detailed-product-flyer.html! He has now had it for 1 year, uses it every day and it still look as good as new!! Also thinking about buying him a personalized business card holder for his birthday :) Editor's Note: We cannot vouch for this website or the relationship of the writer with the website.
