Add a Nostalgic Zing to this Friendship Day with Personalized Gifts

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!

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!

Living in San Diego During The Recent Storms

Ahh the joys of being in San Diego: from the laid back vibe of Encinitas down south to the busy downtown feel. No matter how you look at it, San Diego residents are some of the luckiest in the world. Frankly, the weather is better than anywhere else, the beaches are cleaner than those north of it, and—if you are in San Diego right now, you know I’m going to mention it—the burritos might be even better than those south of the border!

If you are in San Diego, you are probably going through some tough time (tough by San Diegan standards, that is). Unless you’re enjoying the swells, the rain might be something to mope about when you are in a city that is supposed to enjoy year-round sunshine. Chances are that you’re twiddling your thumbs looking for something to do.

There are loads of things to do indoors. Here are just a few.

  1. First things first. I already mentioned my favorite thing to do indoors—EAT! If not for the awesome Mexican food, there are great coffee shops, which are well reputed to warm you up if you are wet and cold, and excellent bars and pubs strewn about. Surely something along these lines will make you forget about how cold it is outside.
  2. Stay indoors and play games. Monopoly is still king. ‘Nuff said.
  3. Go online and order gifts, especially for others. You are probably not the only one stuck indoors looking for something to cheer them up. Maybe your mom would like a nice jewelry box. Is your dad a cigar smoker? Perhaps he would appreciate some cigar accessories. Think about things that could be enjoyed indoors, such as a leather desk set or wine accessories. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Have you gotten your Valentine’s Day gifts for your girlfriend/boyfriend? There are lots of gifts for Valentine’s Day available online which can serve the dual purpose of also allowing you to stay indoors, rather than out in the rain searching for presents for Valentine’s Day.

Good luck, stay dry, and think warm!

Sincerely,

Memorable Gifts

At 5:30 a.m. on a brisk February day, the traffic on the Pacific Coast highway hums along without a single traffic jam in sight. As Raffi Dermenjian heads south, making his way to his business, MemorableGifts.com, he flicks on the radio and listens briefly to the news before changing channels for something more upbeat. At this early hour of the morning, Queen or the Beatles are almost as good as a cup of coffee. They are also good background music for thinking about what lies ahead. Dermenjian begins mentally ticking off the tasks he hopes to accomplish over the next eight to 10 hours.
