It took me a while but I eventually realised copper is in all electrical equipment. I bought my husband the whippet lamp he has had his eye in for a couple of years.

7th Anniverary

Haven't a suggestion as I am stuck for ideas. But I DO like Guest "Amazing Days" idea. i have just looked through the household penny jar and found the coins with the dates I need! Funnily enough, my husband was talking about copper cooking pans last week ...

Copper Moscow Mule mugs

I remember drinking Moscow mules out of copper mugs (the only way to drink a Moscow mule) on our honeymoon. When I read that copper is the traditional gift for 7th anniversaries, I knew exactly what to get.

I Love Ewe

For our 7th anniversary I knit my husband a hat with copper buttons and he gave me some wool yarn in a lovely coppery color.

Copper 3D Heart

My Husband is an electrical so we have lots of cooper wire about -- I made 7 hearts out of copper wire then joined them together into a 3D heart. I printed a list of our important dates on vellum and placed it inside the hearts.

Bought my wife a pair of sheepskin slippers - it's winter so they'll get good use.

Wool and Copper

I found a vintage wool blanket from US Airways in addition to a keychain with a copper disc that reads "lucky us" with a penny from the year we got married.
—Guest Sara

Lucky #7

The other day I found a lucky penny (heads up), from the current year, which gave me the idea for my 7th anniversary card, "I'm the lucky one." I found one penny from each year we have been married, and glued them to the card envelope in the shape of a 7. I only used the first one of each year I found rather than picking the shiniest. I thought this was a simple, thoughtful idea others could incorporate into any 7 year anniversary.

My husband likes to team rope, so i had spurs made for him with copper details. He loved them!

I knit my husband a little wool heart and put it in his card. My friend took her husband's favorite childhood toy -- a little car and had it dipped in bronze.

Do You Live Near a Copper mine?

We are fortunate enough to live in Utah near a copper mine. So, we celebrated our 7th with a family day trip to the copper mine. We won't ever forget it.

May Be Too Corny For Some

This suggestion may be too corny for some, but we bought one another matching Pendleton wool shirts. We like to hike and they keep us warm and will last forever, reminding us of our seventh wedding anniversary.
