Friday Favorites: Fourth Anniversary Edition

Our fourth anniversary is coming up on May 7th and it feels like we’ve been married for much longer than that. I love doing something special to celebrate these moments because all of you married people know that you have to celebrate the wins. Life gets crazy and there is nobody I would rather have as my partner in it all then my dear husband.

So every anniversary I try to stick with the traditional gifts. Year one was the paper anniversary and I made a date book with a pre-planned date for each month of that year. The second year was the cotton anniversary and I got John a really cool Michigan recliner. Unfortunately, that got trashed in our sewage flood last August. I am hoping to replace it when we get the new man cave set up. For year three, the leather anniversary, I got John a pair of Johnston & Murphy leather topsiders that he had been eyeing.

This year, the fourth anniversary, is the fruits & flowers anniversary. This stumped me for a while, I wasn’t really sure what I could do for a gift, but I came up with a few great ideas. On the flip side, I figured I would do my favorites post on some ideas for what to get your wife for the fruits & flowers anniversary in case my dear husband is reading this, haha! Love you babe! Here’s what I came up with:

1. Kate Spade Julie Sandals

I have been eyeing these adorable Kate Spade flower sandals for about six months. How perfect would they be for summer? These are the particular ones that I want.

2. Meyer Lemon Tree

John and I loved our honeymoon in Italy and we love limoncello. I thought it would be so much fun to commemorate this anniversary with a Meyer Lemon Tree and we could grow them all year round in our own home.

3. Kate Spade Lemon Tree Len

I wanted to get some of the lemon pieces from Kate Spade’s original collection, but missed out. Now I just want this adorable lemon tote!

4. Steve Madden Varrcity Floral Pumps

These are super cute and trendy right now!


5. Wine Cork Holder

Since wine is technically a fruit this still fits in with the theme. I would love to get one of these in our house except I would want mine to change the saying to “Home is Where the Wine Is.”

  1. I have never found lemons to be as good as the ones on the Amalfi Coast. We had the best lemon cream sauce there and of course, lemoncello! Have you found any good imported lemoncello in the States?

  2. I totally think the Kate Spade sandals are perfect! Too cute! I loved lemoncello in Italy–can’t wait until I can take Ricky there. Have you grown a lemon tree before? That’s such a cool idea. Our 3rd anniversary is on the 19th…I had no clue it is leather–better get cracking! (Lol….I’ll stop rambling now)
