Did you know when your loved one turns 100 we will embroider a throw / blanket for FREE to help them celebrate? It’s our way of marking this huge milestone in a memorable way.
Our Antique Ivory Throws and White Basket Heart Throws make great gifts for people who turn 100 because they are warm and cozy and can be personalized with names and dates such as the photos show.
Here’s how you can order your free 100th birthday throw from Things Engraved:
1. You can go into any of our stores across Canada to place your order.
2. You can contact our Customer Service team to make the request.
* We often need a copy of the recipient’s birth certificate so please have that handy to confirm dates.
* Please give us at least two weeks notice to ensure delivery of your throw before the special day.
You may choose any design you like as long as it states “100th birthday” somewhere in your embroidery text. Our most popular 100th birthday design is: Floral Scroll – Happy Birthday – Neutral Colour Palette, shown here.
Did you also know that milestone birthdays and anniversaries can also be recognized by various levels of Canadian government? When someone turns 100 you can have the Governor General of Canada and The Queen send birthday greetings. The queen! That’s cool! And this tradition is not new. The website says: “Since 1917 the Sovereign has sent greetings to Canadians for milestone birthdays of 100, 105 and over, and to couples celebrating 60, 65, 70, 75 or more years of marriage.” You can find all of the details about these special greetings here. You can also receive greetings from the Prime Minister; details here.
This customer ordered the throw for her great Aunt. She told us this:
My great Aunt Gladys was born in Verdun, Quebec on July 5, 1915. We will be celebrating her life work on July 2,2015 with the assistant Mayor of Longueuil Quebec making a presentation of certificates from the Mayor’s office as well as the certificate from Prime Minister Harper and Lt. Govenor of Quebec’s certificate. We are very proud of our aunt and are very blessed to have her with us.
