7th Anniversary Ideas & Gifts
By: Amy Cunningham
Your 7th anniversary gift ideas are somewhat limited if following the traditional gift list, especially if you live in warmer climates. Traditionally you'd think of wool sweaters or wool blankets. This works out great if you have a winter anniversary and are in a colder climate as you can cuddle under a wool blanket for two by the fireplace. If you live in a sunnier location, surprise your sweetie with a romantic trip to a cooler climate, then take advantage of that wool blanket and fireplace.
