Celebrating Seven Months of Joy
Anniversaries are a joyous occasion always because not only is it a sweet remembrance of all the time we have spent with someone we love but it also a promise of moving forward together to a beautiful forever. The occasion is also significant proof that the two of you have stuck together despite everything and anything; hence, why not celebrate this achievement?
Celebrating Monthsaries Is Not Silly
To some, a 7 month anniversary might seem a small thing and some might even laugh off the fact that someone would like to celebrate when its not even one year of togetherness!
However, the fact is that for the two people involved in the relationship, 7 months (or any number of days, for that matter) means a lot. And if you two are going rock solid post for a good 7 months then it also means that either consciously or subconsciously you two are surely thinking of a future together. You might have started making plans that almost always include the two of you; for the near term and far future too. All these milestones are significant and must be acknowledged! So don't worry about others and plan out your anniversary celebration.
It Marks the Journey So Far and the Future Ahead
Whether it is one month of dating or 5 years of wedding, anniversaries are a way of celebrating and commemorating your relationship. It is totally up to you and your beloved how and when you celebrate it. A romantic meal, a day trip or just a casual date to just spend time and get nostalgic about funny, romantic, and emotional moments experienced by both of you. You can also take the opportunity to talk about how you both feel about the relationship and what you think comes next. Whatever way you both wish to celebrate it, what matters is that the day is special and means a lot to the two of you.
Should I Get Him a Gift or Not?
One of the things that girls worry a lot about is whether they should get anniversary gifts for their boyfriend when it is for an unconventional occasion like a 7 month anniversary. You may worry about coming off as being too ‘into’ the relationship or you might not want to be seen as being too cheesy or clingy.
You may even wonder if a 7 month anniversary gift might put-off the boyfriend and make him withdraw, scared off by the over lovey-doveyness of it. The answer to this dilemma, fortunately or unfortunately, can only be determined by you alone.
If you feel that your boyfriend is comfortable with how the relationship is progressing, and you have talked things over and both agree that it's going somewhere then don’t hesitate in getting a good (and expensive) anniversary gift for boyfriend. But there is another aspect to consider - some guys hate the idea of over the top romantic gestures and celebrations. If your man's personality is similar, then tread carefully.
However, if you feel that there is still much ground to cover on how the relationship is going and commitments from either side then getting a small token gift might be a better idea.

Things to Remember While Selecting Gifts for 7 Month Anniversary
Though selecting gifts is always something that needs a lot of thought and care, however, when it comes to selecting gifts for your boyfriend for an unconventional occasion such as a 7 month anniversary gift then you certainly need to keep a few things in mind.
- Don't overdo anything: the key to keeping things cool and fun is that you don’t overdo anything. Don’t appear too cheesy while trying to not seem too unbothered as well. Either of them could send a wrong message to your boyfriend or put him off.
- Try keeping things less cheesy: it is always a good idea to keep things less cheesy. Sure, you need a bit of romance in life but there is no need to cross the line and make things extremely uncomfortable for your boyfriend. Try to ensure that whatever you two do, the two of you are both in it.
- Lastly, just enjoy being together: the most important thing is that you enjoy yourselves and make this occasion special so that the two of you remember it through the years to come. It also marks a solid ground on how the two of you have stuck together despite everything and could also be a good time to assess whether you both see this turning into something serious. All these discussions can only be done when the two of you are relaxed and are just enjoying each other’s company.
Every relationship is unique
No two relationships are exactly the same so you need to read the signs and decide for yourself whether it's alright to make a big deal about a seven month anniversary or not. Using other relationships as reference, going by guidelines and discussion forums on the internet and what your friends think is okay only till a certain point. What you need to remember is that none of those opinions and situations can be compared to the unique dynamic you and your boyfriend share and you need to take a call on what will work for you.
