Marking seven years of marriage it’s important to buy the right gift. Many people make the mistake in buying regular gifts but don’t realise there are themes, gemstones and flowers that can help with the buying of the 7th year wedding anniversary of their big day. The traditional theme of the 7th wedding anniversary is wool or copper.
This means you can instantly think of possible items made from either material to buy your loved one and make it a special day. In the UK, copper is the traditional theme for a 7th year wedding anniversary gift. It’s strong, durable as well as bright and vibrant. It’s perfect for gift, ornaments, sculptures and many more.
It shows that your love after seven years is strong, durable as well as vibrant too, and will last for a very long time. Copper is also very valuable and is one of the metals that is often forgotten about but in reality it looks amazing in the home and can really spice up your living room or garden.
As wool is also a traditional gift for the 7th year anniversary of your wedding, it can bring a myriad of choices for a gift. There are many specialist items to choose from and all are warm, cosy and perfect for snuggling up on the sofa with.
If you prefer to buy more modern theme gifts for the 7th year wedding anniversary, then a desk-set is seen as the item to buy.
