If you’ll be celebrating your four years of marriage soon, or know a couple who will be, it’s time to start looking for a special four-year anniversary gift. It doesn’t have to be something large; a small token to show your partner how much you care about them is often enough.
Or, maybe you and your partner like to splash out every year to celebrate the love you’ve built together. That makes total sense too. Marriage isn’t easy, after all. Either way, we’ve put together a list of some pretty awesome four-year anniversary gifts to choose from, whether you’re shopping for your spouse or even for a happy couple that’s special to you.
What is the Traditional Fourth Anniversary Gift?
But first, let’s take a look at some of the more common items given for a fourth anniversary. The traditional gift? Fruit, or flowers. Easy, peasy, right? But if that’s not your speed, you could always opt for the modern four-year anniversary gift of an appliance. And we’ve got some top-notch appliances to choose from on our list!
When it comes to fourth anniversary gifts of gemstones, it’s blue topaz you’ll be shopping for. And the official colors for this milestone are blue and green. Finally, if you will be shopping for blooms, know that geraniums and hydrangeas commonly represent four years of wedded bliss. Lots of options to choose from, so hopefully you’ll have an easy job.
