Four Year Anniversary Gift Idea

Celebrate Your Fourth Anniversary!
Using the number 4, we’ve created this fun and unique anniversary idea for you to recreate! You’re spouse will feel so ‘fourtunate’ to be married to you after you pull of this darling gift idea. There are so many great ideas to celebrate anniversaries, but we wanted to focus on your four year anniversary today with some fun word play. Fortune cookies play a big part in this date – but if you aren’t near the amazing Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Company, we have some great options for you including fabric or printable fortune cookie templates!
Tell your spouse how FOURtunate you are to have been together 4 years!

My husband and I just celebrated our Fourth Wedding Anniversary a few days ago. It was a fabulous day, albeit low-key as we are both so busy! When he got home from school, I had a little surprise for him at the door:

Surprise your spouse with a very FOURtunate 4th anniversary.It’s a little fortune cookie with some cute four-themed fortunes! Attached to the top was a little sign that said “I’m so FOURtunate to have been married to you FOUR years!” and another little tag that told him to be on the lookout for FOUR other FOURtunes throughout the day {or in our case, the house!}.
Celebrate your 4th anniversary with good fortune.

The adorable Chinese takeout boxes are so easy to make! The printable download has 4 different styles and it’s easy as cut, fold, glue! I used a strip adhesive that made it super simple, but super durable! We also have 4 different styles of circles that can be folded in to cute little fortune cookies. I already had some felt fortune cookies on hand that I made from the tutorial here, except I made mine bigger. (You could do real fortune cookies if you wanted, but I liked the idea of felt and letting the kids play with them afterwards.)

Then I typed up four different messages and placed one inside each fortune cookie.

Hope this helps give some ideas if you are happening upon your FOUR year anniversary…or 14th, 24th, 34th, 40th, etc.

  1. I used the “FOURtunate to have you” ideas, combined with the breakfast in bed idea for our 4th anniversary this morning. My note said, “I’m so FOURtunate to have you. Enjoy a FOUR piece breakfast in bed and look forward to a new version of Connect FOUR tonight.” (wink) He saw the breakfast tray and said, “You’ve been reading the Dating Divas.” HAHA! I sent the site to him in case he was ever at a loss for ideas, but I wasn’t sure he’d actually use it! I also used your Wordle idea to make a framed picture for him. Thanks for all the great tips. I really enjoy the website and the fun ways to make my husband feel more loved. Thank you!

  2. Vee, that is SO great that he reads the site! 🙂 Tell him we are impressed. Glad the \FOUR\ idea worked for you and congrats on 4 years!
