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.

Opening engraved ornaments year after year takes your tree decorating party to the next level of sentimentality and nostaglia.

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:

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.
