It's that time of year again – your 4 year Anniversary. The traditional 4 year anniversary gift was something to be treasured, cherished and enjoyed for years to come; but as I watched my friend's celebrate, it struck me how different they were to last year. For instance, one of your guests had a basket full of hand-made potpourri. It included her favorite scents, a candle, a book by a favorite author, some beautifully wrapped sweets, a bottle of wine, and some delicious chocolates.
My friend was celebrating her 4th wedding anniversary, and she definitely did not plan on having a potpourri basket like that for her guests, but thanks to the internet and her creative imagination, she was able to pull off the look. The traditional 4 year anniversary gift would be the fruit, and she definitely did not plan on this one throwing for a loop. She ended up getting a nice combination of practical, fruit-related gifts such as an elegant, organic fruit basket and gourmet dipped fresh strawberries, more practical and gourmand themed gifts such as a cute little fruit knife and melon slicer (yum! ), and then more whimsical and sweet themed gifts such as an elegant gourmet cookie bouquet.
For silk or satin anniversary years, the traditional gift would be a beautiful silk wrap from their local florist or silk tie from their local tailor. However, my friend needed her tie to match her dress, so she decided to give her a matching silk scarf instead. And for those who cannot have enough silks or satins in their life, another great idea for Silk Anniversary gift is a very pretty lingerie set with matching panties and a matching robe set. These sets are made out of pure silk and satin and beautifully feature a beautiful brocade and lace trim that goes on either side of the panties. She absolutely loves it and will surely use it often during her many future anniversary years.

You can make your own silk scarf or satin robe with matching lingerie and panties and surprise your loved one with a personalized item such as a silk covered lipstick shade or a picture frame with your names and wedding date on it. Or, maybe you prefer to buy something more useful, such as a purse or tote that features a lovely pattern, an embroidered throw, or a colorful shawl or cap. These types of gifts are perfect for either a woman who will be hosting a formal party or gathering, or even for a friend or family member who will be attending.
Another popular idea that we have found is that of a fruit basket. This is especially wonderful for the female members of your family who may not enjoy fresh fruit. Instead, your best friend or sister would love to receive a nice selection of fresh fruit dipped in chocolate or strawberries. This can be packaged nicely and sent to any location, or even taken personally to a local farmer's market to be displayed. The other nice thing about fruit baskets is that they can be personalized with the recipient's name or initial.
