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.

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.

A Pair of New Leather Shoe Laces

For our "Third Anniversary," a pair of new leather shoe laces is how we tied a Knot of Love forever & always. One for my husband to hold his cords, and one for me. I will never untie the knot of love. It has one bead to represent our love, never to be untied.
