Finding a seventh anniversary gift for your partner can be challenging when you’ve been together for so long, but if you’re completely stumped, it always helps to look at the anniversary symbol or the traditional and modern gifts for inspo.
We researched the seventh anniversary gifts, themed and not, considering practical, personalized, and experience-based picks. Our favorite traditional and modern picks include absorbent felt coasters from Hoda, a beautiful bouquet from Urban Stems in the anniversary's traditional color, and personalized penny art from Uncommon Goods.
Here, the best seventh anniversary gifts.
Hoda Coasters for Drinks Absorbent Felt Coasters
This 10-piece coaster set fits nicely with any decor. Because it’s made out of durable, environmentally-friendly material, they’ll last for years (and drinks) to come. Choose from round or square to fit your partner's taste, and pair it with a set of personalized glasses and your partner’s booze of choice for a complete gift.
The speckled black color easily pairs with any coffee table design, and we love that the coasters also come with a holder for easy storage when not in use. Spills are no problem with the highly absorbent material that catches any dribbles off of your glass.
These coasters are practical and affordable, but some users warn that they can stick to the bottom of glasses or beer bottles.
Etsy Copper Collection Candles
Create a cozy environment and stick to the traditional copper theme with these handmade candles. Available in three sizes, former customers rave about the quality of the scented candles and the gorgeous packaging. They also note the scents—all seven of them—are delightful but not overpowering.
Happily Date Night Subscription
Whether you believe in the seven-year itch or not, it’s important to keep your relationship from becoming repetitive. That’s where the Date Box comes in handy. Each month, you'll receive a completely planned date that caters to your interests as a couple, which is determined based on a questionnaire. Some activities include ice cream making, dance lessons, and indoor camping.
L.L.Bean Glerups Wool Slippers
You can’t go wrong with a gift that is comfortable and cozy. Made of premium wool felt, these slip-resistant slippers are a great themed gift that encourage your partner to sit back and relax. And though there are many wool slippers on the market, one customer claimed they are “easily the best slippers I've ever purchased.” We take their word for it, especially since users from our own slipper test agree.
Etsy Copper Initial Gift Set
You can’t go wrong with a piece of art that also sticks to the seventh anniversary theme. Cast in concrete and painted in copper, this initial and heart set can serve as bookends on a shelf or a centerpiece for your table. And because each set is handmade, your gift will be completely unique.
Etsy Wool Felted Figurine Portrait
Portraits don't have to be limited to canvases. The artist uses the finest Merino wool to create a 3D sculpture of you, your partner, and any other member of your family. Though each piece is unique to the couple, they each feature a tree in the background to symbolize strong family bonds.
The Cocktail Box The Moscow Mule Cocktail Kit and Copper Mug
If you and your partner like to experiment behind the bar, then this Moscow Mule kit is a perfect gift. Although you have to buy the liquor separately, this kit comes complete with all the other essentials for this classic cocktail—including two copper mugs. It also doubles as a fun date night activity.
Airbnb Experience Gift Card
You can’t go wrong with a getaway, especially if it’s somewhere significant to your relationship. You can plan the entire trip yourself, or give your partner an AirBnB gift card if they want to take the reins.
Etsy Wool Felt Nesting Bowls
Help make their office (or, really, any room) a little cozier and more organized with these handmade wool baskets. Crafted from the softest Alpaca wool, this trio of baskets can hold jewelry, succulents, or any other treasure your partner likes to keep safe. Available in 29 colors, you can easily find a set that works with their aesthetic.
Urban Stems The Purple Iris
Not only do the colors of this bouquet brighten any space, but they incorporate the traditional seventh anniversary flower: freesia. If this arrangement is a little too bold for your partner’s liking, you could also ask a local florist to make something special that incorporates their favorite flowers or colors.
Etsy Personalized Lyrics and State Wall Hanging
This personalized piece of art incorporates multiple elements from your relationship to create a gift that’ll move your partner to tears. First, there’s the copper state cutout with a red heart to indicate your specific spot. Then there’s the background, which can be lyrics from your special song or quotes from your favorite movie. For a finishing touch, add your names and anniversary date to the frame.
Etsy Glow in the Dark Constellation Print
Mounted on a copper plate, this glow-in-the-dark map shows how the stars aligned in your special place on your special night. Unlike other constellation maps on the market, this one allows you to include a meaningful inscription. From lyrics to your special song, to quotes from your favorite movie, to your wedding vows, the sentimental possibilities are endless.
Aran Merino Throw
If you want to lean into the wool theme while still giving your partner something meaningful, Murtaugh highly recommends this blanket. “It’s woven with ‘marriage lines,’ a classic Aran design that's symbolic of the highs and lows of marriage,” she says. Not to mention it’s super comfortable, making your movie nights even cozier.
Anthropologie Acrylic Bloc Collection Desk Storage
Helping them organize their office may not seem romantic, but desk sets have become a staple anniversary gift over the past few years. What makes this piece stand out from the others is that the acrylic pieces are stackable and interchangeable, meaning your partner can customize it to their liking. Pair it with some high-quality office supplies or personalized stationery for a complete gift.
Uncommon Goods Lucky in Love Personalized Penny Art
If you’re searching for something sentimental that incorporates copper, this piece of penny art may be the perfect find. The personalized wooden plaque features three pennies from the years of three important dates in your relationship. Another penny-based idea: Purchase pressed pennies from places you’ve traveled and place them in a keepsake book.
Etsy Keepsake Wooden Box
When you’re with someone for seven years, the memories—and mementos from them— start to pile up. Rather than tossing the special trinkets in a plastic bin, give them this customized keepsake box. Real users rave that “the craftsmanship is on point,” and that the “box is flawless! From the engraving to the stain to the precision of the cuts, it is just perfect."
de Buyer French Copper Cookware Collection
The all-copper exterior is not only stunning, but it helps the pans heat up and cool down quickly, which aids in temperature control. Note that lids have to be purchased separately, so you may have to build a complete set over time.
Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2
The Ember mug uses precision sensors to help you control the temperature of your beverage, meaning your partner will never have to worry about their caffeine getting cold. It also stores your temperature preferences to ensure the perfect drink every time. Though this is more expensive than your typical mug, it’s worth the investment.
David Yurman Color Classics Bangle Bracelet
Jewelry is a classic gift for a reason— especially if the piece itself is a classic. The simplicity of the sterling silver bangle is elevated by the addition of black onyx, the traditional seventh anniversary gemstone. One customer wrote that the bracelet is well-made and that "the detail is exquisite from the tight cable twist to the prong setting."
Movado Men's Swiss Chronograph Series 800 Performance Steel Bracelet Diver Watch
One customer wrote that “this watch is elegant looking and absolutely sexy,” and we couldn’t agree more. Made of performance stainless steel, this timepiece is guaranteed to last for many years. Not to mention the black bezel and dial of this chronograph watch allow you to subtly incorporate the onyx theme into your gift.
What to Look for
The traditional and modern gifts for a seventh anniversary are copper and wool, which represent protection and comfort, respectively. “Couples celebrating their seventh anniversary should consider copper and wool gifts that not only look beautiful, but also serve a purpose,” Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy trend expert, tells The Spruce.
Therefore, it’s very easy to default to a gift that’s a bit more practical. And Johnson suggests that’s not a bad thing: “This ensures that partners will love and use it for anniversaries to come," she says. Some examples include copper barware, a wool-insulated travel mug, or a custom copper catch-all.
Some people believe that happiness in a romantic relationship wanes after seven years. And whether you believe this or not, it's a good idea to try to shake things up once in a while. For something more creative, try planning some unique date night or a surprise getaway.
You don’t have to think too far outside the box or spend too much money to customize an anniversary gift for your partner. Simply inscribing your anniversary date on a piece of art of jewelry can take the most traditional gifts to the next level. Just note that custom gifts like these might take a little longer to ship, so plan ahead.
What are the 7th anniversary symbols and meanings?
The traditional seventh wedding anniversary gift is copper, which is meant to represent love and protection. In contrast, the modern seventh wedding anniversary gift is wool, which is symbolic of warmth and comfort, or desk stationery.
What is the 7th anniversary flower?
There are two flower options for the seventh wedding anniversary. The first is the freesia, a delicate flower that symbolizes friendship and faithfulness. The second, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, symbolizes shelter. Jack-in-the-Pulpit is lesser known and may be harder to find, so consider substituting with a fern, which also symbolizes shelter.
What is the 7th anniversary stone?
The seventh anniversary stone is the onyx, which can range from white to black. That said, the more traditional onyx color is black, which can easily be incorporated into your gift if you prefer not to give jewelry.
