The seventh wedding anniversary has a lot of power behind it. Lucky 7! Jackpot! Seventh Heaven. You get the idea. It also has some negative connotations like the “seven-year itch” that we’re going to choose to ignore and not give any energy to. Instead, we’re celebrating! To kick off the celebrations, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite 7th wedding anniversary gifts across all budgets.
What is the Traditional 7 Year Anniversary Gift?
The traditional 7th wedding anniversary gift theme is copper or wool. Both represent warmth and durability, and copper has long been known to represent good luck and prosperity.
You could also veer from traditional gifts and go with a modern seventh-anniversary gift—desk sets and stationery. Not sure which color to get? Go with off white or yellow, which are the official 7th anniversary colors.
Jewelry more your style? There are also stones associated with each wedding anniversary, and the 7th is onyx.
Looking for something simple and sweet? Consider a bouquet of freesias, which is the 7th anniversary wedding flower.
How Do You Know Which Gift to Go With?
Whether you’re buying a seventh anniversary gift for your spouse or looking to help a couple celebrate the special occasion, you’ll want to first and foremost think about what they really love. After all, it doesn’t matter what the traditional or modern gift is, those are just suggestions. Instead, focus on a gift that will have meaning and will honor the 7 years of marriage they’ve had and look forward to the future.
With that said, here are a few of our favorite ideas for a seven-year anniversary gift.
