Which wedding anniversary is the 4th?
Your 4th wedding anniversary is a time to show you are a “smooth operator” and find an equally smooth silk or linen gift. These materials are the traditional gift given on this occastion due to their soft feel but also because they are a stronger, more valuable material than cotton and therefore represent the strength of the marriage. In ancient Egypt, mummies were wrapped in linen due to it being so light and pure and furthermore linen was often used as the currency, showing its symbol of wealth.
Considerations around Linen Anniversary Gifts
Although silk and linen typically are thought of as more “female materials” there are still plenty of options for male presents. Of course there are the feminine options of silk pyjamas, scarfs, underwear and so on. But what man wouldnt appreciate a luxurious pillow or duvet to end a day with. Other gifts include tablecloths, dressing gowns, shirts, ties, pyjamas, napkins, the list goes on.
The 4th anniversary has endless options for gifts. You can even add a unique twist to the gifts by getting them embroidered, an option which will be available at a range of online sites. Simply have a look at the ideas above, decide which one your partner could do most with and buy a quality silk or linen version of it.
If none of these ideas appeal to you then there is always the option of a dozen silk roses or the traditional 4th anniversary flowers, Hydrangea. With
around 70 – 75 species of Hydrangea, there are a huge selection of colours and sizes to suit everybody.
