Personalized Friendship Gift“A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often – just to save it from drying out completely.”  – Pam Brown

Friendship is that unique bond which needs nurturing every once in a while to keep it alive amidst the daily chaos of weekly deadlines and personal obligations. If you haven’t had a chance to express how much your friends mean to you lately, let the first Sunday of the next month inspire you to make your friends feel truly special. August 7 ‘2011 is Friendship Day! Proclaimed as a national holiday by the U.S. Congress in 1935, it is now celebrated annually, on the first Sunday of August in several countries.   It is the day to celebrate all those unforgettable moments shared with your dear friends, the good times and the challenging times, the milestones and the momentous occasions. Times when all you needed was a sounding board and a shoulder to lean on to sail through a tough phase of your life, when your friends were there for you to lift your spirits and help you bounce back with a smile.

It’s that day of the year again when you can enjoy an opportunity to value the one bond that stands the test of distance and time, as true friends always take off from where they left. Although there are several conventional ways in which you can make your friends feel truly appreciated, nothing comes close to a personalized gift that evokes the wonderful nostalgia of the yesteryear and refreshes those warm memories. An elegantly engraved gift with your names carved on it, coupled with a sweet personal note can create memories of a lifetime for your friend.

Personalized gifts have the charm of transforming the simplest tokens of love into memorable souvenirs. It embellishes your gifts with that ‘hand-made’ appeal making it all the more special. Who says you have to be a creative genius to make your gifts personalized? Here at memorablegifts.com we help you to choose and personalize one-of-a-kind, unique, yet elegant gifts for your friends. So this Friendship Day be a little creative and surprise your besties with gifts that will add some sunshine to their ordinary Sunday routines, which generally involve prepping up for Monday and the week ahead.
Friends come in many shapes, sizes and guises: school friends, work colleagues, siblings, partners, parents, pets and neighbors. Take the time to let your friends know that they are special. Celebrate the laughter, the tears, and the endless conversations which you shared and cherish until today.

Friendship Day is just around the corner. And it’s time to begin your search for some memorable gifts for your beloved friends that will be treasured forever. This year send a Happy Friendship Day tribute to your friends to let them know you care. It’s worth it!

Here’s wishing you all much in advance, Happy Friendship Day!

Personalized Graduation Gift

Top 5 Considerations When Buying a Graduation Gift

A graduation gift is recognition of academic achievement and the perseverance of the student over an often long and sometimes arduous course of study.  It also marks a turning point in the student’s life, whether going to college, graduate school, or entering the workforce which is the next step.  Before choosing a personalized gifts  for a graduate, there are five top things to consider.

#1 How Well do you Know the Graduate?
If you know the graduate well, it will be easy to decide on a personalized gift and a customized message that fits.  On the other hand, if the graduate is an acquaintance or the child of a co-worker, then you may want to ask a few questions before deciding on the type of personalized gift to give.  A graduation award with her name and date may be more appropriate than a teddy bear with a graduation cap.  There are gifts that you can safely give to graduates even if you do not know them that well.

#2 What are the Graduate’s Interests?
You can find gifts that specifically commemorate graduation from medical school, business school or law school. Even some high school programs have a specialized concentration in an academic field. The messages you select for the the gift can directly address the graduate’s interests, aspirations and accomplishments.  A graduation plaque, inspirational quote or keepsake in the form of a book all have room for personal messages.

#3 Is College Next?
If the graduate is going onto college or grad school, coffee could very well become an integral part of future study sessions.  Tote bags will come in handy when going to class or the library.  A commemorative pillow can be displayed in a dorm room.  A personalized wooden book with a graduation theme that opens up to a clock on the right side and a picture on the left side is perfect for a desk.

#4 Are You Mailing the Gift?
If you need to mail the gift to an out-of-state student because you cannot attend the graduation, you may have your online order sent directly to the student in time for the celebration.   UPS rates are reasonable, especially when you choose ground instead of overnight delivery, and you may be able to get free shipping depending on the products being purchased.

#5 Do You Want to Make a Lasting Impression?
A gift made of glass or wood will be kept and cherished for years.  Some engraved gifts look more like promotional products instead of presents you want to give a special person.  Graduation presents that make a lasting impression will always have a place in the dorm room, or the home, or the office because they add to the décor and stand for a memorable occasion.

Before you make a decision about which personalized gift you will purchase for the graduates you know, consider these five questions.  Let the answers guide you to the right graduation gift to honor the student’s hard work and determination whether he or she is a close relative or a distant acquaintance.

Memorable or Not? Amazon Gift Cards Vs. Memorable Gifts

Memorable or Not?  Amazon vs Memorable Gifts

 

When you find yourself in that state of indecision between knowing that you want to give a gift and realizing that there is only so much time left, it is not uncommon to reach for that magical solution offered by the ubiquitous gift card.  Keep in mind though, that the joy of giving is multiplied tenfold when you find just the right present for the right purpose. At that moment, as you watch your friend or spouse or child open up the package, you know that you’ve made a choice that will be remembered for a long time to come.

What Message Are You Sending?
To be perfectly frank, nothing says, “I really have no clue what to get you” like a gift card, and an Amazon gift card sends the same message.  Sure, Amazon is the leading e-commerce mega store with innumerable selections in virtually every imaginable category.  And granted, if you have no time to put into your decision, a gift card that can be applied toward some obscure Amazon product may provide a bit of internet surfing fun.  But is it a memorable experience that leads to a gift your friend or family member will forever associate with you?  Probably not.

On the other hand, personalized gifts or engraved gifts gives you the opportunity to add a message, a note or a special date to the item of your choice.  For example, you can give personalized gifts to celebrate an accomplishment or welcome a new baby into a special person’s life.

Better to Make it Personal
When you give someone a $25 or $50 Amazon gift card it will buy a few books and CDs or perhaps a DVD or two.  What’s more, you are leaving it to your friend or relative to purchase a gift for himself or herself. Unless those who receive your generic gift cards remembered to bookmark Amazon pages in the past, they will have to search by category, then by sub-category and scan down to find something that might be interesting. Then there’s the problem of shipping and sometimes the different items come from various locations, so the whole order may not be delivered at the same time.

What if the gift card doesn’t cover shipping?
When you visit our site, you can shop seven different ways for a gift meant specifically for the occasion you want to recognize.  You can also choose to view products by recipient, by holiday, by specialty shops, by product, by types of wedding gifts and by types of business gifts. Our  site is organized to help you shop for gifts for all the important people in your life and for just about every situation.

The Memory is in the Message

The all-too-generic gift card will not evoke a memory five years from now.  A laser-engraved message that you create for a gift that suits the recipient and the occasion will be cherished and displayed for years.

A Message to My Husband – (Submitted by MG Customer Lori Green)

A Message to My Husband - (Submitted by Memorable Gift Customer Lori Green)

Memorable Gift Customer Lori Green

Last week, one of our customers shared with us how much her HUSBAND has impacted her life.  Check it out below:

My husband was truly pleased when he opened the anniversary present I purchased from your site. His favorite hobby is wood working, so the rosewood jewelry box turned out to be the perfect selection. I had his initials engraved on the top of the case. Your company did a very professional job.

 

Your customer service from start to finish was absolutely wonderful.  The jewelry box was wrapped beautifully. I could tell that my gift to my husband was packed with great care to prevent damage during shipping.

I have mentioned your website to friends and will continue to shop for personalized gifts at your online store.  By the way, I really like how easy it is to shop on the site.  Other gift sites are so cluttered with way too many items and the pictures are not high quality.  I can tell you take as much care with the site as you do with your packaging and shipping.

Thank you Memorable Gifts!
