30 7th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas You'll Love

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 7 year anniversary gift idea that’s traditional, modern or a little bit of both -  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. 

Now, tradition dictates that couples should exchange gifts of a particular material symbolic of the length of their marriage. And it’s not just an excuse to go shopping - there’s a meaning behind each milestone. The traditional wedding anniversary gifts for seven years are copper and wool, as they symbolise property, luck, and good fortune as well as love and durability. 

But if wool and copper gifts don’t do the trick, then a modern take on this tradition is to exchange stationary or desk sets after seven years of marriage - after all, who says love can’t be practical? 

Symbols of 7th Wedding Anniversary

Each anniversary carries its own set of symbols, for example a flower, a colour, or a gem - so there’s something for everyone with this marriage milestone.

7 years of marriage traditionally represents… 

  • The onyx gemstone as the stone is symbolic of devotion and persistence, reflecting the love that you share with your partner.
  • Freesias as this flower carries connotations of innocence in every colour, and are often gifted as a way of confirming the chastity of love once more. 
  • The colour yellow identifies growth and enlightenment, and reflects everything that you’ve learnt together for your copper wedding anniversary. 

As you can see, there are lots of creative ways to interpret this anniversary, and we’ve listed our top 30 seven year anniversary gift ideas in the UK below for you to browse. 

In case you’re in a hurry, we’ve put a few of our tried-and-trusted favourites here:

4. Copper Rivet Distillery Dockyard Gin - Waitrose

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: Three working days for £5.95
  • Expert Take: 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 - 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
  • Expert Take: This scent works wonderfully for both the day and evening and is a sleek size for using on-the-go.

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 7 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.
