Anniversary

 My 7 year anniversary is next weekend.  I have no idea what to get my husband. 

I am corney and have tried to buy something along the tradition or modern suggestions for each anniversary.  I started on our first anniversary with a nice watch.  He had bought me diamond studs on our wedding day.  Funny, my husband started it too.  How cute is he. 

My problem is this year is wool, copper, or a desk set.  Seriously?  What the hell?
