It’s hard to believe, but the 7th anniversary is soon approaching! Time flies when you’re having fun, and it seems you were celebrating your 6th anniversary only yesterday. So if you’re looking for creative gift ideas for your loved one, you’ve come to the right place.
Here we will discuss 21 unique traditional and modern gifts perfect for a 7th-anniversary celebration!
Why not consider giving your loved one an experience with more modern gift ideas? Whether tickets to see their favorite band perform live or reservations to go skydiving together, these gifts are perfect for couples who love adventure and trying new things. Another great idea is to give them a membership to their favorite museum or recreational center, which can be a great way to help them learn more about something that they’re passionate about. Finally, if you and your partner are crafty or artistic, consider giving them an original piece of art that you’ve created yourself!
This is a highly thoughtful and heartfelt anniversary gift idea. It’s more expensive than some of our other 7th wedding anniversary gifts but is also unique and personal. Purchase a beautiful locket necklace online, then engrave it with your name and wedding date on the inside. You could even spell out “7th Anniversary” instead! This is a true keepsake, so they’ll think of you whenever they look at it day in and day out.
Strength training is not only exercise for physical health, but it also boosts your confidence levels. If you and your partner are into this type of exercise, then why not try a couples’ weight lifting class?
If your partner enjoys supporting a local team, consider purchasing tickets to a game or event. This would be an ideal gift for the sports-obsessed individual who is always trying to watch the games on TV. You could also purchase their favorite team jersey!
Handmade Wall Art
Handmade wall art is a beautiful and creative way to celebrate your anniversary. Depending on the type of material you choose (we recommend canvas or wood), this will be an ideal piece to hang in their home office, living room, bedroom, or any other space they love spending time in. We suggest working with an artist online who can transfer their favorite photo memories into art format. You could also take a photo together today and have it printed, so they have something tangible!
A Smart Watch
Smart watches are an ideal gift for men because they’ll never go out of style (and honestly, women love them, too!). If the couple is both punctual and appreciates being on time, this is their gift choice! Consider choosing a watch that’s a little fancier than they would typically buy for themselves but that they’ll use regularly.
Take a Hike
When “taking” became “making,” hiking became an even more romantic activity for couples. It’s great exercise, it’s cheap (depending on where you go), and if done right, it makes for a sweet afternoon or evening gift idea as well! If neither one of you are experienced hiker, start with an easy trail and add more challenges as you go.
You can get a personalized wallet as an anniversary gift for her or him. Whether it’s for a spouse, parent, or friend, gifting them a personalized wallet with their name or initials can be a thoughtful gesture that shows how much you care about them. Not only does it provide practicality and protection, but it also serves as a reminder of your relationship every time they use it.
You can’t go wrong with wood if you’re looking for a traditional seventh anniversary gift. Whether you get your partner some nice wooden home decor or a beautiful piece of jewelry inlaid with wood accents, this is sure to be a thoughtful and meaningful gift that will bring back memories of your special day!
Membership to Museum or Recreational Center
As previously mentioned, if your loved one is particularly interested in museums, aquatic centers, sports clubs, or theaters, consider giving them a membership as their 7th-anniversary gift. This way, they’ll have access to all the events at the facility, which can be an excellent gift for those who love being on the go or enjoy spending time with their loved ones out of the house.
We suggest purchasing a scrapbooking kit if you’re looking for an anniversary gift that’ll wow them. This would allow you to DIY completely personalized gifts together, an opportunity that’s hard to come by.
Desktop accessories are an excellent way to enhance their home office space, especially when personalized. For example, gifting them personalized stationery with their name and initials engraved in gold or silver so they can write notes to loved ones. With this anniversary gift idea, you’ll remind them of your love every time they sit down at the desk to write!
Leather products are always a good choice for anniversary or birthday gifts. For the 8th anniversary, consider gifting your spouse a leather-bound journal. Journals are also excellent gifts for other special occasions, such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduations. We recommend that you choose one that’s mainly well-made so they can use it for years to come!
A Fancy Dinner Out
At the 7th year of marriage, it’s time to celebrate again! We recommend taking your spouse out for a nice dinner at a popular restaurant or venue. The trick is to pick somewhere with an amazing atmosphere and decor, so they feel extra special on this special occasion. If it’s not near where you live, consider asking them if they have any favorite restaurants in other cities or countries and plan to visit one of those too!
A Spa Trip
Spa days are ideal gifts for couples who want to relax together after a hard day’s work. Since you probably know the place well (or at least its type), book a service together and spend the day there relaxing, chatting, and getting pampered by professional staff. You can also create your own spa experience at home by making homemade face masks or body scrubs from ingredients you already have in your kitchen! The key is to make sure it’s a place where both of you feel comfortable and where you can enjoy yourselves.
Who doesn’t love a picnic? In my mind, the word “picnic” evokes images of elegant meals on beautifully set tables in picturesque settings (like those seen in films by Merchant Ivory Productions). Still, a picnic could also be as simple as taking a gourmet pre-made meal to your local park or just having takeout from your favorite restaurant on an outdoor blanket somewhere. For an additional romantic touch, consider renting some classic movies beforehand and using these for entertainment while you’re picnicking.
A great date idea that can have lengthy romance potential is taking dance lessons together! Check out local dance studios to see what dance styles they teach, and if you don’t know where to start, consider teaching your loved one how to do the Macarena (a truly romantic gesture). Dance lessons are a great way to bond with your partner and practice your coordination skills.
Incorporating an artistic element into date night is always a great idea! Many places will have craft workshops for couples who want to learn something new together or make personalized gifts for each other. It’s also romantic for an artistic couple or a budding artist/writer couple.
Pack up some camping gear and head out into nature in style! For extra romance, pack up all the comforts of home so you can enjoy a lovely dinner and an evening under the stars.
A Night at the Theater
One of the wonderful things about marriage is that you can simultaneously be both playmates and soulmates. Go to a movie or a live theater performance together, laugh, hold hands, and enjoy each other’s company!
If your relationship is built around mutual culinary interests, you should consider taking cooking classes as a creative way to celebrate this anniversary. Get some recipes for even more date ideas.
Another tremendous outdoor exercise activity for couples who want to stay fit and have fun together! Riding bikes is also romantic because it forces you to slow down from busy lives so you can be together.
These activities may include bowling, basketball, swimming lessons or games, dodgeball tournaments, and many others! Recreational sports usually bring people together for some fun competition. Just make sure to have a good time by playing fair and with lots of laughter!
