4th wedding anniversary gifts February 2018

Still wondering what to give your spouse on your fourth year together? For the fourth anniversary, say it with flowers.

The fourth wedding anniversary is said to be the year of linen, silk, fruit and flowers, with couples giving each other gifts within those themes. The gemstone is a blue topaz and the flower is a geranium or hydrangea. Modern practice, however, is to give one another electrical appliances. Have a look through some of our top picks!

Top tips on wedding anniversary gift giving

  • The traditional flower for the fourth wedding anniversary is the hydrangea, or the geranium. Though it’s best to choose flowers that are in season as they will be cheaper and generally more fragrant. You can also buy potted flowers or a small tree for your home or garden, and watch your plants put down roots and grow as your relationship does.
  • Appliances are a pretty fail-safe gift on any occasion. Kitchen appliances, especially, are always useful and cooking together is a great way to share creativity and spend time together. For your anniversary, you could make a night of it, and together, you can try out a new recipe using your new kitchen appliance.
  • Get creative, mix traditional with modern themes, while giving something personal and useful at the same time. For the flower themed fourth wedding anniversary, what about a picnic in botanical gardens, or a trip to the nursery to choose a young tree to grace your yard in the years to come?
Are gifts expected at anniversary party?
Unless there is a ‘no gift’ requirement with the invitation, it’s likely you’re expected to bring a gift. However, if you break the ‘no gift’ invitation clause, and show up carrying a gift you will potentially embarrass the host and other guests. If you’re hosting the party, simply be clear to the invitees on whether gifts are necessary.

Gift ideas for fourth wedding anniversary

As flowers are both the traditional gift on the fourth wedding anniversary and a beautiful and romantic way to say ‘I love you’, thinking about flowers or floral-themed gifts is fitting. Flowers represent the blossoming of a relationship in its early years. But when picking the right flowers, it’s best to choose those that are in season as they will be cheaper and generally more fragrant. You can also buy potted flowers or a small tree for your home or garden, and watch your plants put down roots and grow as your relationship does.

The traditional flower for the fourth wedding anniversary is the hydrangea or the geranium. Again, though, think outside of the box. Feel free to choose flowers that your partner loves, that are in season, or that will look beautiful in your home.

Appliances are a pretty fail-safe gift for any occasion. Kitchen appliances, especially, are always useful and cooking together is a great way to share creativity and spend time together. For your anniversary, you could make a night of it, and together, you can try out a new recipe using your new kitchen appliance.

Maybe you would like to surprise your spouse on the morning of the anniversary day? Picture this: your spouse stirs from blissful slumber to the scent of freshly ground and brewed coffee wafting through the bedroom door. They go to the kitchen and find a new coffee machine gurgling, creating the perfect morning espresso. Waffles are ready, prepared with the new waffle maker, and in that moment, they hear the doorbell. Right on time, the flowers have arrived. Before they know it, they are holding a giant bouquet of colorful fragrant flowers.
