7-Year Anniversary Gift Ideas for Your Spouse or Favorite Couple
Congratulations! Seven years of marriage is a huge accomplishment that deserves to be recognized. This wedding anniversary puts you one year closer to the decade milestone—now it's time to celebrate with a romantic gift. We know that "romantic" means something slightly different to everyone, so we've created a one-stop shop for seven-year anniversary gifts that range from unique and creative to classic and practical. It can be tough finding gifts that fit the traditional anniversary theme, but these handpicked items will leave him, her or them really feeling the love. And if you'd rather break with tradition, not a problem. We've got present ideas for you too!
What is the seven-year anniversary gift?
Traditional: Copper and Wool
Traditionally, the seventh wedding anniversary is represented by copper and wool. (Copper and wool anniversary gifts?! We know what you're thinking, but don't panic. That's why we've created this handy gift guide.) Copper is seen as a durable metal that, according to Greek mythology, attracts love and protects against evil. Wool, on the other hand, symbolizes warmth and comfort. Together, these materials represent your strong and loving marriage after seven years together. Whether you're searching for a copper gift for your husband, a wool gift for your wife or a classic seven-year anniversary gift for the couple, we've got inspiration for you right ahead.
Modern: Desk Sets and Stationery
For those out there who prefer something a bit more contemporary, desk sets and stationery have become the modern symbol of the seventh anniversary. They represent the love and pride couples have for each other's work. If you're unsure, cover all your bases by celebrating you or your favorite couple's copper anniversary with a desk accessory made from the long-lasting metal.
