It’s year 7 of your marriage, hooray! Anniversary time is upon us again! The 7th year of marriage is an interesting one because of the superstition of the 7 year itch. Most divorces that occur happen at the 7th year mark or a little bit before. Why that’s the case, who knows. But if you’ve made it this far into your journey together with no sign of stopping, then this is a big deal! And this year, the traditional wedding anniversary gift is…COPPER!
With copper gifts comes kitchenware, jewelry, creative wall prints and much more! Secondary to copper, we also have WOOL! Think sweaters, blankets, pillows, socks, scarves and anything soft as a lamb. For colors this year, choose yellow and off white. And for gemstones, seek out black onyx and yellow sapphire.
Without further ado, let’s get into the best Copper and Wool anniversary gifts for him and her that they’ll love!
7th Anniversary Gifts for Him
For the man that loves ginger beer, vodka, and lime juice, he needs the proper glass to enjoy a good old fashioned Moscow Mule. Moscow Mules are traditionally served in copper drinking mugs pretty much anywhere you order them and lets be honest, they just make them look so much more inviting. For your 7th anniversary, gift your guy this amazing Moscow Mule Mug Set from our 7th Anniversary Gift Collection!
Sound Wave art is making waves…literally. Written lyrics are one thing, but imagine having a picture of the sound of his favorite song, or your first dance song. If not a song, then send us a recording of a sweet message like, “I love you,” or “Happy Anniversary!” and have its sound wave printed on a stunning copper canvas! It makes for great modern/contemporary wall art and is a unique statement of love that your husband will be amazed by!
Give him the gift of personalization and drink! This sleek and classy copper stein mug adds a touch of sophistication to your drinkware.

For the man that has everything, why not add a custom copper money clip to his arsenal?

If your husband is this kind of guy, gift him this rustic copper money clip with his name engraved on it!
Give him a place to keep his things! If you didn’t gift him that wooden docking station for your fifth anniversary, then this personalized valet tray is a perfect alternative! He can keep his keys, wallet, spare change, sunglasses or anything else he needs to toss aside and come back for later.

He’s going to look so adorable all bundled up for the snow or chilly weather, and when he gets compliments on it, he can say his wife made it for him (even if its store bought, no one needs to know!)

Black Onyx is one of the two gemstones for the 7th year anniversary. Black Onyx is a powerful protection stone and helps prevent the drain of your personal energy and helps deflect negative energies of those around you. It can also help you keep your emotional stamina up during times of stress or sadness. Black onyx is a great gemstone for jewelry because it’s black and will match with pretty much anything! We love this contemporary and simple black onyx necklace and we think your wife will too!
Yellow Sapphire is the second of the two anniversary gemstones for the 7th year. These canary yellow sapphire studs are definitely going to make a statement when worn by your wife. Since they’re simple solitaire studs, they can be worn as a casual earring for a touch of sparkle or with an evening gown or any other special affair. Yellow is a great color for gemstones because it influences positive energy and light into our chakras. Sapphire is known for its ability to instill self control and a sense of insightfulness. Sapphire will keep you calm and protect you from any impulsive decisions that will affect you negatively. For more on sapphire, read this article from our friends at Sincerely Silver!
