7th Wedding Anniversary
For the seventh anniversary, traditional materials are copper and wool, plus the modern gifts ideas are brass and desk sets.
With copper and brass, ideas might include jewelry and home decor such as sculptures, furniture, or appliances.
For wool, you could spice up a room in the home with a new decorative rug or perhaps a wool blanket to cuddle under together when watching a movie. Or you could give clothing such as a warm shawl for her or a sweater for him.
A wonderful his-and-hers idea for winter would be genuine Australian-made ugg boots, where they were invented decades ago! See our recommendation in the righthand column for the real deal. As a travel gift, consider visiting a place where wool is produced such as New Zealand or South America.
Like copper, brass has many options for the home!
Onyx and Yellow Sapphire are the alternate modern jewelry materials for the 7th anniversary.

My husband is most definitely a romantic, so trying to out "ahhh" him
can be quite a challenge. So I started researching for our seven year
anniversary six months in advance. I was very delighted to discover
that wool was a choice. Since I've been knitting for over 35 years, my
first thought was "wool sweater." Then I carried that theme a step
further and created a fisherman knit pattern utilizing x's and o'x and a
pattern called "marriage lines", which is essentially a zig-zag pattern
to represent the ups and downs of marriage. I threw in a couple of
cable patterns for good measure and set to work. I tried to work on it before work and at lunch, but realized I'd never get it done in time, so
I had to work on it at home. My husband is also very observant. He
always knows what project I'm working on, so I told him he could see
what I was working on, but he'd have to forget what it was until it was
done. I must say, the sweater turned out beautifully, but the best part
was the look on his face when he put it on for the first time. He wore
it to work and proudly told all his co-workers that I had made this
especially for him to show him how much I love him. Now I have to come
up with another "ah" for eight years and I think I raised the bar too high! -- Becky
