I am sure we all have a story or two about how shopping for a gift has been a nightmare sometime in the past. Sometimes the most difficult people to buy for are the people we are closest to – we know everything about them but somehow it’s still tricky trying to find the perfect present. The reason for that is everything you see in the shops is generic and won’t have a special meaning, you don’t want to be handing over a gift to someone you truly care for just for the sake of giving a gift. The thing we all want is to be handing over a gift that has a lot of though, is special and unique to the person who you’re giving it to.
Here are 3 great reasons why keepsakes are the perfect presents for those closest to you.
We all know the line ‘it’s the thought that counts’ and that couldn’t be more true when it comes to a personalised gift like a keepsake. If the present it made specifically and personally for the person who is receiving it, then it show that a lot of time, thought and most of all care has been put in to that choice. There are many ways you can do this; using their handprint or footprint is a great example.
More often than not, most of the gifts we receive from people are quite easily forgotten about, that is not the case with keepsake gifts – people who receive keepsakes will treasure them forever. There always is a story behind personalised presents, they remind people about a happy moment in time, and that makes it even more special each time they see it. For example, you could buy a newly married couple a personalised framed picture with their names on it and a painting of the place where they got married, this will remind them of their special day.
When you give someone a keepsake, what it means is that you know that person very well and have taken the time to ensure that their gift is something they will treasure forever. Partners and parents are the people this is most relevant to, that’s because it show you care and love them, which is essentially the best gift anyone can ask for.
