The Gift of Time for Dad

by

Every time I ask my dad what he wants for a gift, he tends to be stubborn and says “Nothing.”  If I press a little further, nine times out of ten he’ll then say, “just give me your time.”

This about sums it up. The most memorable things I can think of with my dad have been moments we’ve shared together. Fishing off the side of the boat as a kid, talks in the car, movie nights, drives up to the cottage…it was always about time together.

I’ve always been very nostalgic. Good ‘ol Google tells me that this word essentially means “a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.” I often find myself in this nostalgic state, especially around times of year like Father’s Day.  It’s great to look back on good times with those you love. Experiencing life with people close to you is a gift in itself, and being able to cherish the memory makes it even more meaningful.

Oftentimes, the most beautiful gifts to give are those that remind the recipient of those special times.. The meaning in gifts holds so much when it evokes special memories.  As Canada’s premiere gift company we take a great gift and help you evoke the special meaning behind it.  For example, when my Dad says he just wants “my time” I think, a pocket watch with his name and “love your daughters” engraved on it is a unique way to mark all the special times we’ve spend together.  My Dad is gonna love it!

A Reason to Celebrate

by

Feelings of excitement surface. Their final grades have been posted…they check their marks…they passed! They made it and are now officially a graduate. You’ve been by their side through all these years of study, and now they are ready to conquer the world. 

Graduation brings much excitement each year for a fresh bunch of students. Whether a loved one has just completed high school and is preparing to enter university, or they have finished their degree and are entering the workforce; graduation is a time of great celebration and a refreshed feeling of growing into new responsibilities. These feelings are carried on into the new chapter of their life, be it the working world, or more schooling.

I remember how I felt graduating high school. It’s overwhelming in both a positive and a nervewracking way — the promise of a new future, uncertainty about what’s to come, big decisions to be made. Looking back now, while I’m in a position to be entering my third year of university this fall, it’s insane to think how long has passed and how it also feels like no time at all. It seems like each term flies by faster than the last. I’ve met so many people, learned so many things, and accomplished more than I could have ever imagined. I have the same hopes for all the new grads this year and beyond, wherever they’re at in their educational journey.

Being there for the new grad and celebrating alongside them their accomplishments in the past and this new chapter approaching in the future is a beautiful way to recognize their hard work and dedication. What better way to recognize their accomplishments than with an extra-special personalized gift?  We’ve got many ways to mark the occasion; go here to find the ideal memento.
