In the UK the tradition for 7th wedding anniversary gifts is that they are made from copper. Copper gifts certainly aren’t the hardest of the wedding anniversary gifts to source but can still be tricky. Especially if you want something that is nice, meaningful and doesn’t blow the budget.
In a bid to help give you some inspiration I have put together a list of some beautiful 7th wedding anniversary gifts that I think are suitable for either male or female recipe ants.
Scented Candle with Engraved Copper Lid
This lovely gift is hand made by Willow and Light and comes is a beautiful bergamot and clary sage fragrance which is a fresh and unisex fragrance. The copper lid not only fits with the tradition of the copper gift but as it can be engraved with any message it makes it a more personal and thoughtful gift and can be saved long after the candle has been used.
Copper Wine Glasses
These copper wine glasses by VonShef come in a set of two. The copper is a show stopping unique look for a glass and is sure to be a talking point every time they are used. These would make great 7th wedding anniversary gifts not only for your own partner but also if you are buying them for a couple as effectively thy have one each.
Copper handled cutlery set
This copper handled cutlery set is a practical yet unique gift that meets the tradition of the 7th year and will brighten up any kitchen. It would go particularly well as a set with the above glasses to add a touch of class to your dinner parties. If you are buying for a partner who works away a lot this would be a great gift for them to always have with them on their travels.
These Mugs are available in a set of 4 and would be a great gift idea for someone who loves quirky items.
This is probably the most romantic of 7th wedding anniversary gifts. It is your opportunity to create a picture in copper of the sound waves from a favourite song, or even your wedding song, that can go on display for years to come. This gift will show that you haven’t only taken the time to find a gift in keeping with tradition but that you have thought about your wedding 7 years ago and personalised it just for them.
I hope these have given you some inspiration when it comes to shopping for 7th wedding anniversary gifts..
