Modern 4th Anniversary Gifts: Electrical Appliances

I shudder to think of giving an electrical appliance as an anniversary gift! However unromantic they may be, they are a very practical part of our everyday lives. Take inventory of what you need, and get your spouse something that they will really appreciate. Better yet, go shopping together to pick out something that you both agree on.

  • Smoothie Maker
  • Electric skillet or wok
  • Dishwasher
  • Refrigerator

4 Year Wedding Anniversary Flowers

4th wedding anniversary gifts

If you choose not to go with the suggested traditional or modern gift themes, perhaps you could give a geranium plant (the 4th anniversary flower). You can attach a seed packet to the top of your gift, or better yet, surprise your spouse with a bed of geraniums or a pretty pot with them in it. If they are planted outdoors in a bed, they
will be annual plants (the kind you need to replant each year). If you have them in a pot, you can keep them indoors all year round. Annual geraniums are very popular because they have big, long lasting blooms, are available in vibrant shades,
have pretty foliage, and are easy to grow. Ivy geraniums have a vine-style growing habit making them perfect for containers and hanging baskets. Find a good garden center in your area to help you make the best choice. If the live plant version isn't for you, find something with a picture of a geranium on it.
