Thanks for the Weird Spelling of My Name, Mom!

by

This one is for the Braedyns, Cyndees, Izobels and Mykels. You know who you are. You have a name that SOUNDS like it should be easy to spell, but your creative parents decided to be all artsy and take your “Jason” or “Madison” and turn them into the much more fancy “Jayceson” and “Maddisyn”.

They meant well, really they did.

As I am sure you already know, your name has never EVER turned up on the side of a coke can. Or on notebook covers, back to school pencils, or door tags that say “David’s Room.” No where to be seen!

Now, my name is Julie, not “Juley”, “Jewleigh” or “Julee”. I have never had this problem. My name was EVERYWHERE on stuff, especially in the 1980’s when it seemed like there were a TON of “Julies” around. This problem has never really cross my path.

Recently, someone in our office hosted a birthday party for a friend and when she was telling us about the fun time everyone had, she said that she had taken some of our newest Christmas ornaments and had each person’s name engraved on one, as a party favour for each guest. It was exceptionally well received by one woman in attendance, who exclaimed “My name is NEVER on any of these things! THANK YOU!!!!!”

Alyshia, another member of our Things Engraved staff, said she FEELS her pain and had the same experience, with her name being spelled differently than the more traditional version, being “Alicia”.

We at Things Engraved are all FOR creativity, so we say, embrace your unique spelling, and shout it out to the world how much you love being uncommon. AND just get your uniqueness engraved onto whatever you want! Whether it be something our store, or something you already have (we offer carry-in engraving as well), you can have YOUR name, spelled YOUR way, on just about anything you wish (as long as we can fit it into the engraver!)

If you are already a “Sue”, “John”, “Sarah” or “Andrew”, then I am sure there is a person in your life that will be THRILLED to receive a gift with their unique name engraved right there for all the world to see! We can help you choose exactly the right thing. And we will be happy to spell their names however you wish.

Here are a few great gifts, just waiting for a unique name!

This gift is one of the most versatile items I’ve found. I’ve given it to kids who think its so neat to have their own special blanket with their name on it and an embroidered dinosaur or teddy bear, I’ve given it to couples to mark the purchase of their new home, I’ve given one to my Grandma to remind her that even though we don’t see her often, she’s always in our hearts, and I’ve even given one to myself, because who doesn’t love a cozy blanket.

019577 GLASS BOX FLASK SET

I love the flask that comes with this set!. It is all stainless steel and has a contrast finish of brushed and polished metal on it. This contrast makes it modern and timeless. There is so much room to get creative on this flask, front, back top and bottom. The box it come in is black and has a glass top, this is nice because as you store it all together until it’s next use. It looks great on display!

 

PERSONALIZE IT >

OLD FASHIONED SCOTCH GLASS

I love this as a gift for men. Men always prefer something that they can use, and if the guy in your life likes scotch, then this glass will get used :)It is a simple glass that really shows off the personalization.  The glass engraves with a nice frosted look.  I like adding Silver fill to give it that extra POP! Any Dad, Grandfather uncle, boss..etc would love a set of these. Even better is that they are so well priced, you can splurge a little more on the personalization of the gift!

This is THE GIFT if you want to make the person cry (or just to get in their good books). This is the flower you get them that will NEVER die.  Company that with the message you engrave on the heart disc and it is bound to be a hit! I got this for my mom “just because” and she cried her face off.  I don’t normally like to make Mom cry, but I knew she was just touched and happy with her gift!

 

“TAOMINA” 5X7 FRAME

This is the frame that almost every one will like. It is simple, modern (timeless) and both men and women like it. It simplicity makes it adaptable to any room in the house and it creates an a amazing back drop to engrave that perfect message on it. This gift allows so much room and the engraving really comes out well on the material. Any occasion, any person, awesome gift!

022333-1 SHEAFFER 300 SERIES PENS

I love these pens! I received one as a gift and still use it to this day. Another gift for that guy in your life! It is useful and it is pretty cool to have your very own personalized pen. The pens have a nice thick body and a great weight, which I find does well for people with bigger hands and gives lots of room for the engraving. It is super comfy to use, no cramping! The metallic one is great for that person that enjoys the subtle things. The black & gold one is shiny and the engraving really POPS on this on, this one people across the office will know its yours! Haha joking, but it really does look smart. I got my Dad one for a gift, he was pretty stoked and surprisingly never had his own personalized pen before! Definitely a great gift choice:)
