What Is the 4-Year Anniversary Gift?
So, what is the 4-year anniversary gift, you ask? That not only depends on who you ask, but also where you’re asking. In the United States, the traditional 4th anniversary gift is fruit and flowers, while the modern 4th anniversary gift is appliances. That said, if you ask someone in the U.K., they’ll tell you that the go-to 4th anniversary gift is linen.
And it doesn’t stop there. Every anniversary is associated with a certain stone. When looking for a 4-year anniversary gift, the stone of choice is blue topaz. Naturally, that lines up with the 4th anniversary gift color: blue. (Green is also accepted.) And while a traditionalist will tell you that your 4th anniversary is your “flower anniversary,” there’s also a special 4th anniversary flower—the geranium.
