Total Basset Case: Fruit & Flowers : 4 Year Anniversary Gift Guide

Fruit & Flowers : 4 Year Anniversary Gift Guide

My 3 year anniversary gift guide was a huge hit last year so I am back again this year with a 4th year round up.  

And for a little back story, at our first year of marriage, Mister and I (let's be honest I did) decided that we would attempt to go the traditional route with gifts each year.  
We both love the challenge of coming up with creative, clever and thoughtful gifts this year.
And here we are at year 4 and the traditional gift is...are you ready for this...
fruit and flowers - at first glance, not the easiest of prompts
And the 'modern' gift is appliances.
Well lucky for both of us, we did invest in new appliances for ourselves back in January.
But we still wanted to go the traditional route (and on a budget) on our actual anniversary.

Let's get the obvious gifts out of the way...
Wine and flowers.
Easy peasy, done and done.
And I honestly don't think any girl would appose either of those.

But! Let's take it a few steps further and get a little more creative.

A few of these may be a stretch, but let's just call them extra clever.


Wine of the month club (great for girls and guys)
Edible Arrangements (I mean it's fruit in the shape of a floral arrangement)
Apple products (iPhone, iHome, iPad, iPod, iTunes gift cards)
Fruit themed kitchen towels/accessories (Target or Crate and Barrel are good places for these)
Seeds to plant apple, orange, banana, etc trees
Nutribullet, Ninja, Vitamix (to make fruit smoothies)
Flowers/landscaping items- a 'day in the yard' gift basket
Kate Spade often has fruit and floral themed items - bagswalletsclothing etc.
Cologne/Perfume (floral scents)
Garden tools (to plant flowers)
Fruit flavored olive oils

And there you have it, fruit and flowers!
What ideas do you have for 4 year anniversary gifts?

Come back by tomorrow to see what Mister and I gave each other and how we spent our anniversary.

We like to go the traditional route too...for our 4th year we bought an Apple computer...still counts for fruit, right?! :)

I like the idea of a fruit tree that could grow in your yard each year. And I love those edible arrangements. The chocolate covered pineapples and strawberries are my favorite :)

You guys are soooo much better than us....we have never followed the traditional route of anniversary gifts....I didn't even know fruits & flowers were the 4 year option!! We are old!! LOL!

You are so conveniently 6 months ahead of us, anniversary-wise. I remember consulting your 3 year guide last year and taking notes for September! Love these ideas.

Kayla MKOY said...

I wonder if Caleb and I will do this?!?! I should probably ask him...as our 1 year anni is coming up next month already -- which seems crazy, ahh! You guys are so good :) I love it! Those edible arrangements are awesome!

Angie said...

You are so creative!
I'd love to receive pretty much any of it!

You shared a nice information about "Anniversary Gifts" for couple. Fruit & flowers are forever gifts which we can give to our partner..

You have a very inspiring way of exploring and sharing your thoughts. It is very uncommon nowadays, lots of sites and blogs having copy pasted or rewritten info. But here, no doubt, info is original and very well structured. Keep it up forth worth florist

Jack son said...

A large portion of the online bloom shops keep their sites refreshed. So while settling on a decision for the flower vendor do see his past work. bouquet
