What story will you tell? #TravelTuesday

by

Where would you travel if you had the chance?  Anywhere at all?  Grab a globe, close your eyes, point and go? Or do you have a dream of someplace specific?  Do you want to see the Great Wall?  Or the Swiss Alps?  Visit the beach in Ortona, Italy to pay silent tribute to a loved one?  Maybe you just want to hop in the car and drive a few hours to a secluded lake.

Ever since reading “Eat Pray Love” I’ve been dying to spend months in Italy eating way too much pizza and pasta, (and of course learning Italian and dolce far niente – the sweetness of doing nothing!) followed by finding my inner peace and purpose meditating in an ashram in India.

“Travel.  It leaves you speechless and turns you into a storyteller.”

While these two phrases seem contradictory, they could not hold more truth.  I’ve had my breath taken away by the beauty of the mountains and the vastness of the ocean.  I’ve seen the world from the sky, coasting over a patchwork of fields and bodies of water.  Felt the thrill of feeling the touchdown on a foreign soil, knowing adventure waits beyond the gate (I love arrivals gates, don’t you?).  I have experienced moments where words fail to express the magnitude of what I’ve seen, yet I have come home bursting at the seams with stories of the places I’ve been, the memories I’ve made and the people I’ve met along the way.  Memories engraved onto the very core of my being.

How amazing it would be to travel the world.  Some of us will have the chance to climb mountains, sail the ocean, experience cultures unlike our own (yet somehow, touchingly similar) and some of us will only see the world through photographs, living vicariously through those who have gone before us and hearing accounts of what lies beyond our own backyard.  May wherever life takes you leave you speechless with a story to tell and memories to be engraved.

Travel Gifts

Globe gifts are popular choices to help remember your travels.  But any gift can be a momento of your travel adventures if the simple memories are not enough.  Frames to hold the awesome photos, pendants, and dog tags engraved with your travel co-ordinates are all great options to keep the memories of your travels alive.

This frame is PERFECT for a girls weekend trip for example.

OR are you looking for something that is EXTRA special and out of this world? This levitating globe is not like any other gift you have ever given!

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.

Best Friends Deserve The Best Gifts

by

Some of the most memorable and life changing relationships are the ones that come from our time at school. Through all of the fun, the challenges, the good AND bad times, your friendships get you to the other side.

This gorgeous set of engraved rose gold bracelets are headed out to 8 friends who have forged their bonds over pizza, coffee, late night study sessions, crying over assignments, and laughter long after reasonable people have gone to sleep (hey, they earned that fun night after all the studying!)

They are now young women, leaving the craziness of their university years behind them, and they will ALWAYS be connected. Sharing this set of engraved bracelets will remind each of them that they belong to this tribe of women. Even if they end up in different cities, countries or time zones, they will remain strengthened by their connection to one another while sharing this set of bangles.

No matter who your best friends are, or where they live, share your love for them by giving them a personalized gift that reminds them that you are there for them, no matter what, across any distance (after all, you can talk to them on Snapchat any time you want!)

Here are just a few more ideas to keep your friendship top of mind, no matter where you all call home.
