A Reason to Celebrate


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.

What story will you tell? #TravelTuesday


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


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.
