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:

Need engraving ideas? Look to music, movies or literature

This morning while going through some of the orders on our website, I noticed that someone ordered a gift using a quote from the TV show “The Office” (best show EVER! At least in my opinion). I was thinking about how many times we see gifts personalized with quotes from movies, shows, books and most especially song lyrics.

It is not hard to see why – sometimes there are extra layers of meaning in sharing words from a memorable pop culture moment. Whether its sharing the experience with someone special (maybe a first date), a running joke between friends, or just that the words express your feelings perfectly, engraving a ‘message’ that perfectly expresses what you want to say to someone makes the gift a keepsake they will always enjoy.

Here are just a few recent examples of gifts with engraved quotes or lyrics:

“Running Home To You” – song by Grant Gustin from the cross-over episode of “Supergirl” and “The Flash”

Song lyric from the song “Beauty and the Beast”

Song lyric from the song “Wildflowers” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Quote from “Game of Thrones” by Tyrian Lannister

Quote by Barney Stinson on the TV show “How I Met Your Mother”

If you are not sure what to engrave on a gift, take a look at quotes from your gift recipient’s favourite movies, tv shows, books or songs. There is a WORLD of inspiring ideas for personalizing a special gift!

For more great gift ideas, visit our website or find a store near you.
