4th Wedding Anniversary Gifts – Ideas for Him

Today marks our 4th anniversary as husband and wife. Finn and I have actually been together since high school (over 14 years!), and I feel like I’ve fallen more in love with him this past year than any year before. He’s been by my side on my darkest days, and I don’t know where I’d be without that man of mine. I’m so lucky to have him as a life partner. 4th wedding anniversary gifts for himEnough with the mushy-gushy stuff, let’s dive into today’s post topic….4th wedding anniversary gifts! Finn and I have always followed the “traditional” gift for our wedding anniversary. We like it because it forces us to think outside the box and get creative with the theme of the year. Instead of purchasing the same gifts year after year, we have some fun with the theme and challenge each other to always stick to it!

Anniversary Gifts from Years Past

Here’s how we’ve celebrated the first 3 years of marriage…

Linen & Silk or Fruit & Flowers?!4th wedding anniversary gifts for him

I started researching this topic a couple months ago and found some conflicting reports on 4th wedding anniversary gifts. In the U.S. it’s “silk & linen” and in the U.K. it’s “fruit & flowers.” That’s a heck of a lot of categories compared to the past 3 years of anniversary gifts. Finn and I chatted and decided that we could go with any (or all!) of the categories for our gift-giving this year. 4th wedding anniversary gifts for him

Here are some of the gifts ideas I came up with for Mr. Finn while planning his present. If you’re looking to buy something for your husband, hopefully one of these ideas catches your eye!

Linen Handkerchief

Finn is always looking to add some flair to his outfits and he’s all about the pocket square! This classic linen handkerchief would look fabulous with his navy suit.

Anniversary Journal

This gift doesn’t fit with the 4th year theme, but I think it’s a good gift for ANY anniversary. My dad gifted this to us and I love filling it out. It’s a beautiful way to document each passing year and there’s even a spot to store anniversary cards and a photo from every year!
