Fourth anniversary gifts can be celebrated with the traditional list and silk or linen. If you are feeling brave then you could have a look at the modern anniversary list as well, but I am warning you it is not pretty! We have put those ideas at the bottom of the page!
With silk anniversary gifts, think
Silk is part of some very pretty jewelry and the pieces end up being quite unusual too which is nice when you are wearing something that not everyone has! This silver heart pendant is worn on a silk cord. Although most of the pieces are for women you could look at silk cufflinks for men to keep with the theme.
With this year being silk you could look at sending silk flowers, that way they last forever too.
As well as a bouquet you could buy a box of silk petals and scatter them on the floor to an already run bath and a glass of Champagne to celebrate. That would be a fun way to start your celebrations!
Silk anniversary flowers are available from JustPaperRoses.
There is something very luxurious and sexy about a silk robe and because of this it makes a great anniversary gift. Plus this is another great gift for both or you, that way you won't have to share!
The great thing about silk scarves is that they can be a gift for your husband or your wife.
The men's scarf doesn't have to be just silk as quite often they have wool mixed in, which makes a more manly scarf!
When it comes to women's scarves there will be one to fit all tastes - even those that don't normally wear scarves! One really lovely idea I came across was to tye a really colorful silk scarf to a bouquet of flowers, it looked stunning. And if you are thinking of going on an anniversary vacation you could have a silk wrap for wearing at the beach.
Both silk and linen can make great gifts for both men and women. You can have linen suits or bed linen, you could have ties, dresses, shirts, scarves, sheets and silk paintings.
If you are a crafty person you could paint your own silk painting, you can even get painting kits if you are unsure.
If silk and flowers are not your thing you could focus on the number four and have 4 nights away, a set of 4 mugs and even a trip to the local golf course! Sorry couldn't resist that one! Fore! You might have seen that one coming.
The anniversary gift that really makes you think twice is the 4th anniversary gift idea from the modern list, I almost feel there should be a drum roll! That is the gift of appliances!
Now I know most of us will have a secret appliance dream, one that only comes out when you visit your local store, ours is the big American fridges. We walk the aisles and gaze at wonder at the ice makers and the water coolers but I am not sure about it as an anniversary gift, it just doesn't seem right. Maybe it just needs a touch of romance, I suppose you could always add a bouquet of flowers as well! Or a bottle of Champagne to celebrate.
Here are some more romantic ideas!
