Sentimental Gifts for Christmas

Thinking about Christmas, what are you planning on giving your mum, dad, nanna or grandpa?  Sentimental gifts are ideal as they signify how important you value the relationship and a great way to show how much you care for that person.

In today’s fast paced world simply taking a bit of time out to show your appreciation and that you care is priceless.  Whether it is a picture relating to a specific event or celebration, maybe a small pendant with some heart felt words inscribed on one side or another personalised keepsake, they can make a perfect gift and leave a lasting impression.

We have a huge range of products available that would make an ideal sentimental gift.  For example, have a look at the Gold Plated Pendant that is in the shape of a heart.  You can have a photo on one side and your special text message on the other side.

Consider the Sterling Silver Pendant that is oval shaped and hand made to order by a Master Jeweller.  You can also add in a photo on one side as well as your own special message on the other side.  Plus we have several additional options to choose from including a key chain or a sliver necklace.

These are just a couple of examples of gifts where you can create the sentimental value although feel free to have a look through our site for many more special gift ideas.

Christmas is a great time for sentimentality so hopefully you will find something to show your appreciation and the importance that the person has had in your life.

Cave Art – The Significance Of Images

Memories can be formed in so many ways and passed from generation to generation.  Cave art is a great example of this as stories relating to traditions, myths and legends can be told from the related images.  In addition, these images can also be factual as they reflect information at a point in time as highlighted by some aboriginal cave art that could be 40,000 years old that depicts pictures of an extinct giant bird.  Follow this link for more information.

The point is that man has always communicated through images and we still do today.

While some of our own images may not be 40,000 years old we certainly have images that can tell some fantastic stories.  Our children may produce some art work while at school that relates to a story or event at that point in time.  As a parent keeping these images allows the story to live on and are great for reminiscing as your children grow into adults.

The same with photographs that we have that may be from past to current generations.  We are all familiar with the saying that a picture paints a thousand words and this is so true with many of the images that are part of our life.

As with cave art we should take special effort to retain many of these images so we can also pass on our stories to our children and allow the history to live on.
