Nothing says “I love you” more than giving your significant other an uncomfortable, itchy sweater for your 7th anniversary present (the wool anniversary)–a relationship milestone celebrated by many people around the world.
Certainly, being married to someone for 7 years is an occasion that should be celebrated…but we suggest doing it without overpriced, hard-to-wash, climate temperate fiber being involved.
If you’re a classy gift giver, Moscow Mule lover, sheep rights enthusiast, or are just someone who wants to give an anniversary gift that doesn’t say “you remind me of a smelly barn animal” to your significant other, it’s time to rejoice.
The reason: A 7-year anniversary milestone is also commonly known as the copper anniversary.
As copper mug experts, we’ve got a few ideas on how you can have the best 7th copper anniversary and wow your partner with beautiful, elegant copper gifts, like our Original Moscow Mule copper mugs.
Keep reading to discover how to celebrate your 7th copper anniversary with style, put the sheep out to pasture, and invest in a copper-based gift that doesn’t shrink when washed (no matter how many times you drink out of it!).
A Little Copper Anniversary History
The historic origins of wedding anniversaries date back to the Holy Roman Empire. It was tradition for husbands to crown their wives with a silver wreath on their 25th anniversary, and a gold wreath on the 50th.
Now that’s a great way to celebrate an anniversary…am I right, ladies?
As time went on, other anniversary milestone celebrations were created in which men would adorn their ladies with precious metals.
Thus, the copper anniversary was born.
It isn’t clear exactly who officially invented the copper anniversary tradition. But if we had to guess, we’d say it was a group of classy ladies–tired of drinking out of tin cups–who were in charge of the holiday calendar.
How to Select the Perfect 7th Anniversary Present
Our copper mugs are the real deal. Originally created by Sophie Berezinski in 1941, the unique design of our Moscow Mule copper mugs was created to keep your beverages cold, aromatic, and full of flavor.
Sure, there are other copper mugs on the market, but you simply can’t beat the quality and design that Grandma Sophie created years ago.
If you and your significant other already have a collection of Original Moscow Mule copper mugs, that’s not a problem.
We have a variety of different solid copper barware and kitchenware gifts you can give on your copper anniversary.

Anniversary Party Decor
There’s nothing more romantic than planning a night to eat a nice meal, drink a cocktail, and enjoy an evening in with the one you love.
When your copper anniversary rolls around, turn up the romance by setting up a dinner table complete with flowers, fancy china, and of course elegant, Moscow Mule Copper Mugs filled with the Original Moscow Mule recipe.
This simple, yet classy and romantic design, will surely have your significant other falling in love with you all over again!
Anniversary Party Favors
If you’re planning a party for your 7th wedding anniversary, it’s important to think about the party favors you’ll hand out at the event.
We suggest skipping the overused–and if we’re being honest–downright boring baggies of candy or mini liquor bottles.
Instead, celebrate your copper anniversary in style by providing all of your guests with their own Moscow Mule copper mug.
One really fun way to do this is by assigning guests to tables at your celebration with these mugs.
Simply create a board that lists all your guests and what table they will be sitting at, and then hang a copper mug by their name. Once they arrive at your party, they can grab their mug and enjoy the evening.
