Finding the Perfect 4th Wedding Anniversary Gift
Is the perfect 4th wedding anniversary gift right under your nose?
Deciding on a 4 year wedding anniversary gift can be a challenge, but you know your spouse better than most. Start your "gift brainstorm" by considering your spouses hobbies, interests and passions.
A few well phrased questions may help you discover what your suppose really wants. Maybe have a chat with your partners best friend or other family members for ideas as well.
Traditional Anniversary Gift List
Traditionally the 4th wedding anniversary gift is books, flowers or fruit. Three very different themes!!
Flowers have been historically played a big role in gift giving. For a modern twist on an old favorite, you could use flower petals as decoration for a romantic meal.
Each wedding anniversary has a symbolic flower and the fourth year is Geraniums. A bouquet of Geraniums would make a thoughtful accompaniment to your fourth anniversary present.
Fruit. Create an exotic fruit basket to enjoy after your romantic homemade anniversary dinner. After all - who said desserts couldn't be healthy?
Gemstones! Each year has wedding anniversary meanings for gemstones and the 4th anniversary is Blue Topaz or Blue Zircon.
Blue Topaz, a stone for true love and success, promotes individuality and creativity, while providing self-confidence. Any form of anniversary jewelry to your wife should be considered. Try to stick to jewelry styles she favors.

Modern Anniversary Gift List
Linen. Linen and silk are the modern 4th wedding anniversary gift. Set the table with a linen tablecloth for a romantic dinner. Celebrate it with wine and bouquet of flowers. Cover you bed with new silk sheets and light some candles, play some romantic music in the air, and put on your best lingerie!
Appliances. Though not a romantic material, with a bit of imagination appliances can become romantic! Be sure to not buy a "boring" appliance, but something fun for your spouse. A few modern suggestions are mobile phones, laptops, Ipads, and e-readers (my hubby got me a Kindle from Amazon).
Ways to Celebrate Your Fourth Anniversary...
Sprinkle flower petals leading to a romantic set up, like a romantic breakfast set up in the garden. Starting the day with a romantic gesture is the best way to ensure the rest of the day goes well!
Pack a gourmet picnic, and surprise your spouse. To add a touch of romance you could sprinkle the earth with flowers. Make sure to bring some champagne and a few of your spouses favorite dishes.
