7th Wedding Anniversary: 27 Gift Ideas for Your Copper & Wool Anniversary

Copper or wool? That’s the choice if you’re looking for a traditional seventh wedding anniversary gift for your spouse – and we’ve got some truly gorgeous inspiration for you.

Personalised copper cufflinks

If you’re looking for a traditional 7 year anniversary gift idea that'll really wow your other half, you’ve come to the right place. 

The 7th year of marriage is often regarded as the hardest – apparently the ‘seven-year itch’ is a very real phenomenon for many – but you and your partner have made it there, and that’s an amazing reason to celebrate. 

Convention dictates that for your seven-year milestone, copper and wool are the most appropriate wedding anniversary presents; copper, because it represents prosperity, good luck and good fortune – all essential ingredients in any partnership – and wool for its connotations of comfort and security. 

Alternatively, the contemporary take on a 7 years wedding anniversary gift is a desk set (yes, you did read that correctly). And while we know it sounds a bit random, there are some genuinely lovely options that would make for a present they can really treasure, so don’t rule it out (stationery pun intended) as an option just yet.

Here are 27 suggestions for all budgets and personalities, but if you're in need of some speedy shopping, we've picked out the most popular products that you can shop now:

7 Year Anniversary Gifts Traditional and Modern

Copper Wedding Anniversary Gifts

Keep things traditional with your seven year wedding anniversary gift by giving a present made from copper. Copper is said to traditionally represent prosperity, good luck and good fortune and we think this is a lovely meaning for a traditional seven years anniversary gift.

1. The Velvetiser Copper Edition – £99.95, Hotel Chocolat

Copper edition of the Hotel Chocolat velvetiser

Is it just us, or is it serendipitous that Hotel Chocolat’s iconic Velvetiser hot chocolate maker comes in a copper edition? You can add 10 servings of hot chocolate in a range of flavours to get you started – if this isn’t the sweetest seventh wedding anniversary gift ever, we don’t know what is. 

We put the Velvetiser to the test and found it made frothy, delicious hot chocolate quickly and easily. All you have to do is pour your chosen sachet of chocolate flakes into the machine, along with milk, press the button and all the hard work is done for you. It makes for a really thoughtful present as it'll save the recipient money on buying fancy drinks from cafes as they can whip professional-style beverages up at home. 

Delivery Time: £3.95 for three to five days

Pros & Cons: We aren't the only ones to rate this gadget highly - it has over 1,500 five-star reviews, with one person describing it as a 'game-changer'.

2. Samuel Groves 4-Ply Copper Frying Pan – from £90, John Lewis

Copper pan with salmon and vegetables

If you’re the type of couple who spends hours in the kitchen together cooking up a storm, some quality pans should shoot straight to the top of your to-buy list. This copper pan from John Lewis is an investment you’ll use every single day and will look great on the hob while you’re whipping up an anniversary feast. 

Not only does the copper look super stylish, it has a practical use too - it conducts heat excellently and distributes heat for even cooking. 

Delivery Time: Free four weeks

Pros & Cons: This pan is available in three different sizes to meet all your needs. It will heat up to 170 degrees which is great for cooking, but be mindful when handling.

3. Copper Champagne Stopper – £6.39, Amazon

copper champagne stopper

The key to making this gift a success is obviously to present it with a special bottle – perhaps you can even track down the Champagne you sipped on your big day. When you’re in celebration mode, you might not find you actually need to use the stopper before it empties, but it’ll come in handy someday, we promise. 

One review states that, 'It's fairly slimline, so fits in the fridge easily too," plus, "It keeps the fizz in really well - a bottle of bubbly was as fizzy two days later as when I opened it."

Delivery Time: Free three days

Pros & Cons: Finished with a luxe copper colourway, your bottle of bubbly will look amazing even when the wine is 'on hold'. It's designed to fit most tops but we recommend checking before you buy the accompanying bottle.

4. Copper Rivet Distillery Dockyard Gin – £25.94, Amazon

Copper gin

The Copper Rivet Distillery is based in Kent and crafts its spirits through a unique handmade copper still, hence the (highly appropriate) name. A bottle of its dry, citrussy Dockyard Gin would made an appropriate gift for any G&T lover on such a special occasion – "It has a really complex flavour and the subtle scent is really enticing. I also very much like the bottle - looks nice on the counter," says one shopper.  

With hints of orange, lemon and elderflower, it's the ideal tipple to enjoy over ice with lemonade or soda on a warm summer evening. If you incorporated gin into your wedding cocktails, this one's for you. 

Delivery Time: Free three days

Pros & Cons: As the ingredients for this gin are sourced locally from Kentish fields before being distilled in Chatham, there is quality and consistency in every drop. If pink gin’s more their thing, there’s also a strawberry version.

5. Copper Cu 100ml Fragrance – £32, Ted Baker

Black bottle of Ted Baker fragrance

Another clever twist on copper in the classic sense, Ted Baker’s zingy Cu fragrance is a great alternative to finding a present made of the metal itself. It’s an infectiously uplifting mix of grapefruit, bergamot, greenery and pepper, and comes in a sleek jacket that’ll take pride of place on any bathroom shelf. 

When we gave this fragrance a spritz we were initially hit with a peppery scent that was smooth and spicy. Throughout the day the citrus notes came through for a light and fresh fragrance. We find that a perfume makes for an excellent gift as it is not always something your partner would want to invest in so treating them to a luxury aftershave will be really appreciated. 

Delivery Time: £3.95 for three to five days

Pros & Cons: This scent works wonderfully for both the day and evening and is a sleek size for using on-the-go.

6. NARS Copper Voyageur Eyeshadow Palette – £28, Cult Beauty

Copper NARS eyeshadow palette

If your partner is an aspiring MUA (or just loves a touch of luxe in their make-up bag), make a beeline for the NARS copper collection. This quad contains a selection of shimmering copper, pale gold and brown shades which can be softly swiped on for everyday glam, or vamped up for a more intense evening look – like your anniversary date night, for example. 

"I really needed a smaller palette for travelling and I'm quite picky with eyeshadows - mainly because I'm rubbish at doing makeup so I need something that blends easily! This definitely delivers and I love the shades," says a reviewer. 

Delivery Time: £3.95 for two to three days

Pros & Cons: This eyeshadow palette is compact meaning it can easily be popped in a bag for on-the-go touch ups. The mix of matte and shimmer shades easily takes you from day to night without the need of using two separate products. The beauty of bronze tones is that they make any eye colour pop!

What is the 7 Year Anniversary Gift?

After seven years married, the traditional anniversary gift given is copper to represent durability, love and protection.

"Copper is a really versatile theme so there are lots of options that you can go for when shopping for a traditional seven year wedding anniversary gift," says Zoe Burke, Editor of Hitched. "Home accessories, jewellery, makeup and kitchenware are popular choices."

You could also go down the more modern route by presenting a gift made from wool. Symbolic of warmth and comfort, if your wedding anniversary falls in the colder months, it's a great excuse to gift some cosy clothing or a blanket to snuggle up under. 

Prefer something practical? A desk set or organiser is a contemporary seven year wedding anniversary gift - they can often be personalised as well for a sentimental touch.
