5 Weeks Until Christmas – Get Your Orders In

Christmas is only about 5 weeks away now.  Yes, it is that close!

If you haven’t begun shopping for your Christmas gifts, now is the time to do it. I hate that last minute rush, don’t you? You end up with the leftover choices or you have to make a decision quickly.  Either way, the gift is never as good as you’d hoped for.

Most items in our store can be ready for you within a week of ordering and we ask that you allow 7-14 business days for receipt of your order, from when payment is received. That doesn’t leave you long to place your order, does it?  Of course you are able to request Express Post if you are in a hurry.

Free standard postage is included with all pendants, excluding special offers or clearance items unless specified otherwise.  All postage services and costs quoted are within Australia only.

Really, there are only three decisions you will need to make.

1.  Which pendant or gift will you choose?

2.  Which image would you like engraved onto the gift?

3.  How soon should you order?

Remember that all of our pendants come with free gift-wrapping and a free cleaning cloth to keep your pendant fingerprint-free.

Now, it might take you a week or so to find the photo you have in mind or to take the perfect new one.  Time is disappearing while you think about it?

Place your order asap and experience the pleasure of giving the perfect gift to the one you love.

Christmas Memories

Christmas creates so many opportunities to capture memories you don’t often get the chance to create. It’s the time you do things you don’t often do throughout the year, and often the only time you manage to have the important people in your life in the one place.

Between the tidying, present purchasing and cooking, as well as the stress that goes with it all, there’s the propensity to forget to catch those moments as the days and gatherings pass by in a swirl of chaos and running around.

Forget about what you’re wearing or look like, and take the opportunity when everyone is there to grab those group shots, even if they are set up. Sometimes we can be so caught up in “perfect” and controlling the moment, that we forget that the apron with the cranberry sauce on it or the frazzled hair is who those people are at that moment in time. It’s capturing their personality, as well as the moment. This, in itself, is precious.

Snapping away as festivities happen is also important, as they lead to those funny and memorable stories that are beyond “Do you remember when Uncle Bill ….?”. You have the photo to prove it and to keep the story going for generations to come.

Handing out disposable cameras – including and especially to the children – will provide you with many more moments and memories than you could possibly capture between ensuring everyone has a drink in their hand.

Let down your inhibitions and pick up the camera and catch what you can.

Get Your Christmas Orders In

With only seven weeks to go until Christmas, now is definitely the time to start thinking about shopping for your ideal Christmas gifts. While most items in our store can be created and sent within a week from the order date, please ensure you allow at least 14 days to receive your order, or longer, if you take into account the Christmas postal rush. You can of course opt for Express Post shipping if you think you are cutting it fine.

Author Peg Bracken stated “gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas” and a personalised gift wraps both time and love into a thoughtful Christmas package. Memories stand still and can be perfectly captured in a pendant or a pair of cufflinks showing just how much you truly care.

Browse your photographs: select an old memory or a favourite image captured throughout the year or better still, get snapping so you have a current and up to date image to display.

All of our pendants come with free gift-wrapping, cleaning cloth and also free standard postage Australia-wide. And we promise to treat your memories with care!

Christmas is a busy time for many families and individuals and often the lack of time can mean a last minute visit to the shops in which you select the first thing you see on the shelf to avoid the Christmas rush. You don’t need New Year to make a change when it comes to your bad shopping habits – shop early, select carefully and make sure you give a gift that the recipient will be proud to wear.
