7th anniversary gift
The traditional 7th anniversary gift is copper. Luckily, there are plenty of unique copper options available.
It is easier to find items in copper than bronze (which is for the 8th anniversary), as copper it just more widely used. Brass is also very common, but bronze can be a little trickier to find.

Anniversary keychains for the win

Customization is always an option
I use copper metal clay to form my anniversary keychains. This enables me to imprint my handwriting onto metal, instead of relying on machine made stamps.

The result is pure copper, but the texture and feel are totally unique to metal clay.
