Engrave a Heart for Heart & Stroke

by

Love will find a way through paths where wolves fear to prey. – Lord Byron

I really like this quote because while many think of Valentine’s Day as a ‘romantic’ love occasion, LOVE is so much more than that. Yes, we do love our romantic partners, but also our family, friends, customers, communities and more. But love is hard sometimes – whether it is because of distance, misunderstandings, or life’s stresses and challenges (the ‘wolves’), loving someone is not always easy.

Which makes it even MORE important to express and celebrate love, and let love inspire us all to make a difference, both personally and for others.

And that is what we want to do this year for Valentine’s Day.

Not only do we want to help YOU to give a beautiful, personalized keepsake gift to someone special for a celebration of love, but we also want to help solve one of the biggest  ‘wolves’ that threaten our loved ones – heart disease and stroke.

Until February 14th, we are asking our customers to partner with us to help raise money in support of The Heart & Stroke Foundation by engraving a filled heart onto their gifts. We will donate 50% of the engraving cost of the heart! Our goal is to raise $10,000 by February 14!

Not only can you show your heart to your loved one, but together we can show our heart to the world and to those impacted by heart disease and stroke.

Happiness is a warm blanket

by

Close your eyes.  Ok, well close them metaphorically because otherwise you couldn’t keep reading.  Can you feel it?

Ever since Linus exclaimed “My blanket…I can’t be without it!” (and probably even before that), the blanket has been a source of inexplicable comfort.  We reach for them during cold nights (or scary movies), we swaddle little ones as they sleep and, if we’re a toddler, we cling to them and drag them everywhere we go out of security, their surfaces becoming dirty and worn but somehow never diminishing in value.

We received an email from a customer not so long ago who had purchased one of our personalized Royal Plush blankets for her daughter and it was too cute not to share.

“I wanted to take a minute to let you know how much my daughter loved her blanket.  From the second she unwrapped it we couldn’t get it out of her hands.  She is now insisting that it goes everywhere with her and proudly states “Becca’s blanket!” to anyone who will listen.  I know eventually I’ll have to sneak it away from her to wash it, but for the time being I’m perfectly happy watching her drag it through the house or curl up with it in bed.  So thank you – you’ve made a little girl very happy!”

I’m not going lie to you…I’m curled up in one of these blankets as I write this, and honestly I could stay like this all day.  What is it about a blanket that makes everything seem OK?  I can’t say that I know for sure…so I should probably keep snuggling in it until I figure it out.

We here at Things Engraved are happy to offer warmth and snuggles to our customers all winter long.

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.
