Symbols and gifts for the 4th wedding anniversary differ depending on where you are in the world. If you’re from the UK, the traditional gift for this anniversary is either silk or linen. But if you’re from the US, the traditional gift for 4 years of marriage is either fruits or flowers.

If you’re looking for a modern gift for this anniversary, it’s quite a random one! It’s electrical appliances – very romantic, right? Green and blue are the traditional colors for 4 years of marriage. The gemstone is blue topaz, along with amethyst and blue zircon.

Fresh Linen – Cotswolds Candle

If you’re looking for a simpler gift that you’ll be able to make good use of, why not something like a candle? One of the most common candle scents is fresh linen, so it ties in perfectly with the anniversary. This fresh linen candle from Home County Candle Co. is currently on offer for £17 and offers free UK shipping. It’s vegan-friendly and has a burn time of around 45-50 hours!

Silk Personalized Family Wire Tree

If you’re looking for a silk gift, I would highly recommend this Anniversary Gift Silk Wedding Family Wire Tree from Digentus Craft, which is a store from Etsy. It’s a completely handmade gift and you can add up to 7 names to the tree. Prices start from £136, and if you’re a family of 7, there’s currently a sale, which makes the 7 name tree, the same price as the 2 name tree!

The wire branches are flexible and can be molded into different positions, depending on where you’d like each name to be. While this is a pricey gift, it’s incredibly thoughtful and something that you and your entire family will be able to treasure forever.

What Do You Buy For Linen Anniversary?

It may seem as though linen is quite a restrictive idea to base your gift around - but it's not as tricky as it may first appear. You can buy anything from luxury bedding, to a new set of towels, to some napkins for the dining room table, a linen notebook, a linen pocket square or even a linen scented candle. No matter what their preferences, their is something for everyone.

Is Linen an Anniversary Gift?

Yes it is. And although it doesn't sound very romantic, the gift of linen actually symbolizes truth and purity. Both of which are very important in any marriage. Paired with silk, which symbolizes strength and elegance - they really are the perfect pair. 

What Year is the Linen Anniversary?

The year in which you gift linen to your significant other is the four year wedding anniversary. It's important to note that this is only relevant to the UK, as the 4th year anniversary gift for the US is fruit and flowers.

What is the Silk Wedding Anniversary?

It's common to have two traditional gifts for each wedding anniversary. And while the main traditional gift is linen for the 4 year anniversary, silk is also the traditional gift too. If you're looking to buy a traditional gift for your partner after 4 years of marriage - silk or linen is definitely the way to go.
