A leather Belt

This is the perfect gift for a man or a women who loves practical gifts. The belt is not only made from leather and therefore in keeping with the tradition but it is also something they can use daily making it a worthwhile gift and one that will remind them if you every time they were it. This one from Dobell is perfect and available in black or brown.

A leather Journal

Leather journals are a beautiful gift and can be given blank for a partner who loves to write or can be filled with memories or love letters written by you for them.

A personalised key ring

I adore personalised gifts and try and get them for people when ever I can so this key ring is perfect to me. It is not only special because you can add your names and the date you got married but it’s also leather so fits with tradition, plus it’s practical and can be used daily which I also like.

Leather Satchel


Another great gift that is leather but also practical is a satchel or bag that they can use on a regular basis, I personally love this Gusti Leder studio one.
