Cherished Gifts are Purely Personal!
Oh Good Grief – It’s that time again. The holidays are upon us and The VIRGINIA SHOPPER was already in the throes of an early panic! What to give? Where to go? What’s new under the sun anyway? When all of a sudden a forgotten truth emerged! The unbidden words kept creeping in, “Don’t forget Personalized Gifts! Don’t forget Personalized Gifts!” AHA!!! AHA!!!
Why is receiving an engraved gift so very thrilling? Or how can a monogram make something as ordinary as a bar of soap stand out as an EXtraordinary gift? A picture embedded in a Woven Throw can make it feel even cozier. And a name or initials in an Engraved Pewter Cup or a piece of jewelry will become a family heirloom. Most of all, customized gifts are always cherished!
When I was barely 6 years old, my Aunt gave me a little gold ring engraved with my initials. I was soooooo excited and could hardly wait to wear it. Many many years later it is still hidden away in a keepsake box. The ring is strangely bent and will never fit again, but still glowing and the initials are strong with delightful memories.
YES, THE SHOPPER IS GETTING ALL NOSTALGIC, but it’s true – a gift can be special to begin with, but becomes EXquisitely Special with the addition of a name, a sentiment, a monogram, engraved initials or even a transferred photograph.
