Reached your fourth happy year together but still not sure exactly what to get as a gift? For your fourth anniversary, say it with flowers.
The fourth wedding anniversary is said to be the year of linen, silk, fruit and flowers, and this is a great place to start when looking for inspiration. The traditional gemstone for the fourth anniversary is blue topaz and the flower is a geranium or hydrangea. Historically, silk would have been the most traditional gift but recently the the modern practice of giving one another electrical appliances has begun to take over.
In the 21st century, traditions are often considered more as guidelines than steadfast rules. So although it’s a good place to start, don’t feel restricted by what tradition dictates you should be buying your significant other.
Below you’ll find our top picks for fourth anniversary presents. Some are sticking to tradition, some are a modern twist and some of them are just fun! So happy shopping and happy anniversary!

Tips for anniversary gift giving
- The traditional flower for the fourth wedding anniversary is either the hydrangea or the geranium. Depending on the season though, it can be best to choose flowers that are in season as they will be cheaper and generally more fragrant.
- Appliances are actually a great gift because they’re also practical. Continue to grow and build your home together and fondly remember your anniversary each time you use the gift!
- Get creative, mix traditional gifts with modern themes and try to give something personal and useful at the same time. The fourth anniversary is flower and fruit themed, so why not consider a picnic in a botanical garden or a buy a fruit tree that you can watch grow?
Gift ideas for a fourth wedding anniversary
Flower gift ideas
Flowers are a classic, romantic gift idea. The traditional flower of the fourth anniversary is either geraniums or hydrangeas. Above we’ve linked some beautiful arrangements that use these flowers but you could also stop by your local garden centre and pick up a plant that would have a longer life than cut flowers. If either of you have green fingers you could also buy seed packets and grow your anniversary flowers together!
Fruit gift ideas
As the anniversary of ‘flowers and fruit’, the fruit theme can be interpreted in many ways. While simply buying pieces of fruit may not be very appreciated, you can think outside the box with this one and buy something with a fruit print decoration or a beautiful decorative fruit basket like the one above.
Silk gift ideas
If you want to buy something particularly traditional, silk has historically been the gift given for the fourth anniversary. Above, we’ve linked to a couple of silk gift ideas, including a silk scarf for her and a silk tie for him. You could also shop for your home and buy some silk pillows or other silk home decor.
Linen gift ideas
Linen is the other traditional material for fourth wedding anniversaries. You could apply this material to fashion with a linen jacket or to your home with a linen throw like the one above.
