It’s that time of year again! Time to celebrate 3 years of marriage here in Kat+Moose world. Last year I posted on unique cotton-themed anniversary gifts, and (randomly) it’s been one of the most widely read posts I’ve written. Which just goes to proves there aren’t very many good ideas out there and other people are searching for ideas just like myself.
As I mentioned before, we don’t usually do large gifts, and I like to use the recommended yearly themes (which can be found here) as a jumping off point.
Year three is leather. How do I feel about leather? Meh.
Leather clothes aren’t my jam, and, while I’d gladly take a new car with leather seats, that’s not going to happen. There are the obvious choices – a leather belt, a wallet, journal or shoes. (Yawwwwwn.) Also, leather tends to be pricey, which we all know I’m not a fan of.
Let’s explore some unique leather options to celebrate the third year of marriage.
We are country-music-lovers in this household. Fun cowgirl boots are always something I’m keeping my eye out for. Luke Bryan is something I’m always keeping my eye out for too. (*wink, wink) A western belt with a funky buckle and an Eric Church CD might work for him.
Get your Grace Kelly and Cary Grant on. If country isn’t your thing, try going for some classic glamour with some leather driving gloves like these beauties from Aspinal of London. Or perhaps a new steering wheel cover?
While I’d probably let a leather-bound journal gather dust, a leather-bound copy of a favorite book might get some attention. Barnes & Noble has come out with some beautifully detailed leather-bound versions of popular classics. These are some that you might find in our house! They are pretty enough to leave out on a coffee table.
Get it Together
If you travel a lot, Moose does, maybe this cord organizer (The Cordito – hah! a cord burrito) would be a helpful and handy on-the-go travel organizer. After all, when you have the iPhone, an iPad, a Kindle and headphones, the cords start to add up. And for her, I suggest a monogrammed leather business card holder? My cards are always floating around in my purse.
If you’re still uninspired, just tie any gift with a bit of leather rope as a nod to the tradition.
How about you? Any more leather ideas? I have a little bit more time to brainstorm!
