Memories on Display – Engraved Christmas Tree Ornaments

by

So here’s the thing.  I LOVE Christmas.  Not only do I love it, but since the dawn of time…well, my time anyways, the very mention of Christmas has conjured up nostalgia so intense that I’m overwhelmed by the memories of times long ago.  I think of traditions.  I think of family gatherings, seeing faces light up as gifts were opened and before all of that, decorating the tree with my parents while the Carpenters crooned their Christmas Portrait in the background.  Ahhhh the tree.  The tree, in all of its glory, covered in twinkling lights and tinsel and bobbles and decorations of all sorts, the star the crowned jewel peering down from the top.

I don’t know what Christmas memories are close to your heart, but personally I relish the moments of unwrapping carefully packed ornaments, each specific to a time and place with memories all their own.  I have dozens upon dozens, an ornament and a memory to go with it.  Some make me laugh, some make me thoughtful, some bring a tear to my eye, but they all make me smile.  There’s the Merry Mice that from years of wear are no longer fuzzy, the one half of a pair of turtle doves whose counterpart hangs on the tree belonging to best friends in England, the Santa hat-wearing basketball from when my dad and I road-tripped to Indiana and, most recently the two new ornaments that will adorn my tree this year, the Big Sister and Little Sister ornaments I’ve personalized for my daughters.

The Christmas tree, to me, is a collection of memories hung on display for a brief period of time.  In their shiny surfaces we remember Christmases gone by, we relive the magic and wonder of our childhood Christmases and we build memories for future generations.  What a special gift it will be this year to share this experience with my little ones.  I’m hoping that they will eventually grow to love this tradition as much as I do.

Engraved Wallet Cards

by

Imagine opening your wallet and seeing this everyday…

I mean…wow… that would be a feel good moment every single time!

Our engraved wallet cards are SO versatile and there are many ways they can be used for a gift; something fun, romantic, practical or inspiring perhaps?

They make a great gift for someone that is hard to buy for. We all have that person in our lives that we would love to remind how important they are to us every minute of every day, but other gift options like jewellery or pocket watches may not be a good fit for them.

Instead, keep it simple and give them a personalized wallet card!

Let them take your love wherever they go by simply sliding the bank card sized plate into their wallet for a reminder every time they open it!

For example, a customer ordered a card to give to her father. It read “You mean the world to me. You’ve helped me in ways I didn’t know were possible. You have made me who I am today. I love you Dad!” Now, even when they are apart, he will be reminded of his daughter’s love each and every day.

The possibilities are endless; a wallet card can carry a sentiment to help remember the life of a loved one or pet who have passed away. Give one to your children to remind them you’re always with them, or even a note to yourself to help you get through the day.

Here are just a few more ideas:

  • love note for a wedding day
  • celebrate long distance relationships, such as a deployment or working in different parts of the world
  • medical information
  • contact information
  • meaningful spiritual passages or quotes
  • encouragement for a student away at school
  • bucket lists – imagine putting all the places you are going to travel
  • daily mantras and affirmations
  • the names of the most important people to you, as a reminder of why you do what you do everyday

Whatever it may be, a personalized wallet card is convenient, timeless and easy to give, easy to carry gift that is a daily reminder of the important things in our lives.

Everyday Heroes

by

 

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

― Fred Rogers

All of us, at one time or another, have been touched in some way by a hero. Sometimes these heroes are visible and present, putting out fires, rescuing puppies, saving lives one day at a time. Sometimes, everyday heroes are just quietly doing their thing, without calling much attention to themselves. In good times and in bad, these everyday heroes, the helpers, are the ones that make HUGE impacts on the lives of people around them.

They step up.

They get dirty and get involved.

They don’t wait for or expect accolades & praise.

They do what needs to be done to help.

We applaud these heroes and thank them for being so amazing! If you are looking for a personal way to thank some that has made a significant impact in your life, engraved gifts offer a beautiful way to give them a gift that will show them how thankful you feel for them being in your life.

The optic diamond, shown above, was a recently example of this type of gift that was ordered on our website. But the ideas are endless! Here are a few more gifts ideas to consider:
