Finding a beautiful and memorable 4 year anniversary gift for your wife may not be as easy as you may think. You may want to come up with something more creative, more unique, or more special than the standard chocolates or underwear, but lack inspiration for an unusual 4th wedding anniversary gift.
While several anniversary years have a well-known theme, like the silver, golden and ruby wedding anniversaries, the 4th wedding anniversary isn’t familiar to most people. However, if you look at the list of materials that are linked with every year of marriage, you will find that the 4th year of marriage is associated traditionally with fruit and flowers.
If you are feeling creative, there are several ways that you can incorporate these themes into your 4 year anniversary gift for your partner, or you can seek for something unusual and out of the ordinary for your spouse to mark this special day.

Traditions Behind the Customary 4th Wedding Anniversary Gift
The reasoning behind the association of flowers and fruit with the 4th wedding anniversary is steeped in history and tradition. Both these items are thought to represent fertility and fruitfulness, and therefore to give these tokens on the occasion of the 4th anniversary is to wish the couple luck in producing and raising healthy children and many productive years of marriage to come.
Although these historical meanings are beautiful and symbolic, today it may be considered more appropriate to offer a gift from the contemporary list of materials associated with anniversary years, which for the 4th anniversary is linen or silk.
Fun Ideas for a Fruit Related 4 Year Anniversary Gift
If you like the idea of sticking with a classical theme, or you feel that your wife would appreciate a traditional gift, why not opt for a lovely fruit basket? Choose her favorite varieties or try to source exotic and unusual fruits, both fresh and dried, and present them in a decorated basket as a delicious and fun gift for your partner.
If you would like to go for a fruity yet romantic touch, chocolate-dipped strawberries are hard to beat. Feeding your wife these chocolate coated sweet treats has a truly sensual appeal, and will make the event memorable for both of you, especially if you give them together with a bottle of champagne for extra indulgence.
4th Wedding Anniversary Floral Gifts
A floral gift is a simple yet effective present for your wife on the occasion of your 4th wedding anniversary. Whether you select a delicate floral display or a huge, elaborate bouquet, you can choose something to fit within your budget, as flowers always brighten up your home in an elegant fashion. A florist can even arrange something special for an anniversary surprise, such as pretty accessories or extras like teddy bears, champagne or fine wines to accompany your bouquet.
Blue and green are the traditional colors for the fourth anniversary, and choosing a bouquet that features these hues is a good way to incorporate these themes into your present. There are some beautiful blue colored blossoms, such as blue roses, delphiniums and irises which combine perfectly into a stylish anniversary arrangement.
The traditional flowers linked with the 4th year of marriage are the geranium and the hydrangea, both available in blue varieties, so give a really symbolic gift by selecting these colorful blossoms. Or opt for a potted flower to give a green-fingered spouse who will love the opportunity to see her gift flourish in the garden or window-box as her marriage also thrives on.
If your wife lacks the green-fingers required to grow her own enduring blossom, why not give the gift of a blue glazed rose? Serving as an eternal reminder of this special event, each natural rose has been individually crafted into a gorgeous and unique work of art and then trimmed with fine 24 karat gold. What more opulent and luxurious gift could you give your wife as a lasting memento of 4 years of blissful marriage?
Silk Anniversary Gifts for Your Loved One
Any husband who chooses the modern theme of silk for his wife can give a beautiful and romantic gift of silk underwear. Few materials have the luxurious texture and appeal of silk, and every lady appreciates the opportunity to feel truly beautiful with the touch of real silk against her skin.
For a less intimate gift, a silk scarf is a gorgeous accessory that can be worn regularly and shown off as a present to be treasured. Silk scarves never go out of style, and will last a lifetime. Find a silk scarf with a floral print and twin both traditional and modern themes together in one beautiful present, or why not incorporate the themes of silk and the color blue together in an elegant blue silk scarf, blouse, dressing gown or nightdress as a token of love that is just as beautiful as she is?
Silk flowers are another long-lasting and pretty option for silk anniversary gifts for your spouse.
