There’s a bit of confusion as to which anniversary is linked to copper presents. Some people claim it’s the 7th anniversary, others say it’s the 9th, and it’s even listed for the 22nd anniversary as well.
The good news about this is that you have three different opportunities to buy awesome copper gifts for people, whether it’s for your own partner, or for loved ones.
Here’s a roundup of 15 stunning copper pieces you can consider offering as gifts. They range from simple to ornate, running the gamut from useful daily pieces to gorgeous decorative items, so you’re certain to find exactly what you’re looking for.
For those who celebrate the 7th anniversary with copper, this “Lucky Penny” keychain is sure to pull some heartstrings. A real penny from the couple’s wedding year gets stamped with “7 Down” and a heart around the year, paired with “Forever to Go” on a sturdy aluminium backplate. The lucky recipient will undoubtedly smile every time they look at it… which will be ALL THE TIME because their house/car keys will be on it.
Do you remember the lyrics from the first song you danced to at your wedding? Perhaps your beloved wrote a (terrible) poem for you, or sent you a ridiculously long, sweet text after your first date. You likely memorized every word… and now those words can be displayed forever in a heart shape on shimmering copper cardstock.
Hang it in a place where the sun will shine upon it, and watch it glow as brightly as your love.
Moscow Mules’ recent surge in popularity has brought hammered copper drinking vessels back into the spotlight, and with good reason.
