4th wedding anniversary gift ideas

 Here is a comprehensive list of the many items, themes and colors linked with the fourth wedding anniversary. You can mix up these ideas to form a gift that is perfect for a special someone.

Traditional 4th Anniversary Gift Theme: Fruit or Flowers (USA); Linen or Silk (United Kingdom)

Interesting 4th anniversary gift

Given on the occasion of the fourth anniversary, a gift of flowers and fruit represents the way a relationship blossoms and ripens. As flowers nurture our souls, so fruit nurtures our bodies and this gift idea reflects the couple's nurturing love within their relationship, and the deepening of their commitment to each other.

In the Bible, clothing that was made from linen represented the Divine truth, as holy figures wore pure white linen, and angels were also illustrated in this material. Reflecting these concepts, a gift of linen on the 4th wedding anniversary has a meaning of purity, honesty and truth.

Silk, on the other hand, has a more sensuous overtone, reflecting the elegance and beauty of a couple's romantic love. 

Modern Gift Theme: Electrical appliances

Symbolizing the practical nature of every day, appliances reflect how settled the relationship has become.

Flower: Geranium; Hydrangea.

** ** A green or blue rose is also suitable in representation of the 4th anniversary colors.

Although the geranium has negative connotations of folly and stupidity, it also has positive overtones of gentility and comfort within marriage.

The hydrangea too has a few negative connotations, like heartlessness, vanity and frigidity, but within a stable marital setting, its meanings include gratitude, appreciation and pride.

Gemstone: Blue Topaz

Substitution: Blue Zircon; Amethyst

Color: Blue; Green
