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.
But these days, traditions are 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!

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!
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.
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 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.
