4th anniversary gifts

Fourth anniversary gifts – let me guess, you’re out of ideas. Marriage is hard enough, so no need to make things more complicated with “What the hell do I get for him/her?!” We’re proud of you for even remembering your fourth anniversary. So don’t worry about coming up with a romantic gift; we got you. What even is the traditional 4th year wedding anniversary gift? Year one is paper, year two is cotton, and year three is leather. Year four is a fun (and admittedly easy) one: flowers and fruits. While the American tradition veers fruity and floral, you could also veer the British way of linen or silk. And if you’re feeling more modern, less traditional, the newer riff on a 4th anniversary gift theme is electrical appliances. 

It goes without saying – though we’ll say it anyway – that above all, your 4th anniversary gift (and any gift!) should be meaningful and useful to you and your partner. If it sticks within the theme, if that’s your thing, even better. 

Lucky for you we’ve scoured sites for the best 4th wedding anniversary gifts so you don’t have to do the looking. Scroll on for a few of our favorite 4-year anniversary gifts for her, him and both of you.

The Best 4th Anniversary Gifts:

Floral Print Long Robe

A silky floral robe combines two 4th anniversary gift traditions: silk and flowers. Even better, it combines comfortable with sexy, which hopefully are also two descriptive words of your marriage. Gift wrap this one from Nordstrom for an easy, impressive gift.


Meant To Be Bouquet

With a theme like florals and fruits, you cannot go wrong with the easy route: a bouquet of flowers. Teleflora makes it easy: simply search their site by your zip code and find bouquets of all styles available from local florals. Maybe mimic your partner’s wedding day bouquet, or select a bouquet featuring their favorite colors and flowers. 


andSons Chocolatiers Strawberry White Chocolate Malt Balls

No anniversary gift is complete without a little chocolate, but instead of chocolate-covered strawberries – love ‘em, but they’re predictable – how about these Strawberry White Chocolate Malt Balls from Food52? They’re made with all-natural ingredients (no preservatives!), and have a crunchy center topped with strawberry white chocolate with a crunchy center that’s been finished off with strawberry white chocolate. Yes please.
