Are you celebrating four years of marriage but aren't sure what to get your spouse?

If you want to go with a more modern gift, opt for an appliance. The timing of this gift theme is perfect—at the four-year mark, you might be ready to replace some registry favorites that need a bit of a refresh.

No matter what, we've got you covered when it comes to picking a meaningful 4th-anniversary gift. Your spouse is sure to love our editor-approved selections, below.

Feeling stuck on which bouquet to choose? You're in luck—the brand has an entire section devoted to anniversaries.
