Our Three Bestsellers

With Mother’s Day approaching, you may be a little excited as well as a little concerned about what you may end up with as a gift from your children.

The family may also be a little confused and not sure what to get you, so we thought we’d share with you our three biggest and best sellers.

This will make things a little easier for them, and enable you to get something you’re sure to love.

1.  The best by far is the pendant in 9ct yellow gold.  Personalised to include the image of your choice engraved on a heart-shaped pendant, 22cm or 27cm in size, you will be absolutely delighted with this as a gift.  The option for 9ct white gold is there, but the yellow gold is always a winner.

2.  A sterling silver pendant, in the heart shape or round is also a very popular choice.  Similar looking to the white gold pendant, but more doable for the kids’ money boxes, it is another popular item from our selection.

3.  Not just for the New Mum or Mum to Be, our Gift Packages have also been a huge hit.

They really do work for any mum, new or otherwise, and take some of the guesswork out of trying to decide what to buy to show your mum how much she means to you.

Although there is still a selection for the packages, the choice is much simpler and mum will get something to treasure forever.

What will you be getting your Mum this Mother’s Day to let her know how much you appreciate her?

Happy Mother’s Day to all the great mums out there from Etched in Memories.

What Do You Remember About Your Mum?

What do you remember about your mum? Most mums have had a significant role and impact in our lives and have had a huge role in our mental, physical and emotional development. On one hand they may be the authoritive task master demanding we pick up our clothes, clean our bedrooms and clean up our mess. Yet on the other hand they are the ones who have helped when we have fallen over, listened to us when a relationship has ended and provided unconditional love and support no matter what.

The memory of your mum may also relate to a particular smell. Who remembers playing outside and smelling the meal your mum is cooking knowing that the yell to come inside for dinner was about to interrupt your play time with your friends? Even your clothes had a unique smell that came from the washing powder but it still seemed to be special as your mum washed it slightly different to everyone else.

Even the way the meals were made by your mum can bring back key memories. Those peas that came with the roast had just the right amount of mushiness that made them extra tasty, the vegemite sandwich always seemed to have just the right combination and mix of butter and vegemite that meant you didn’t want to swap it for a lolly with your friend at school.

How have you captured that memory? Do you still have copies of letters that you may have written to each other when you were travelling, maybe you have photos from when you graduated from University or pictures of your children with their grandma that will last forever and be the lasting memory for your children.

Obviously the way you have remembered your mum is personal and unique. At Etched in Memories we can assist you to capture that particular moment in your life with your mother so the memory is everlasting.

Mother’s Day Memories

Mother’s Day is Sunday 13 May and while we should recognise and appreciate our mothers each and every day, Mother’s Day allows us to make a concerted effort to really make our mums feel special.

The days leading up to the 13 May are particularly busy at Etched In Memories and we always feel grateful that we are a part of creating a special memory or moment for many of the mums out there.  Our Mother’s Day Packages always prove to be a popular choice with many of the bears and personalised pendants being scattered in all directions throughout Australia and beyond.

Remember the quality of the pendant engraving is only as good as the quality of the photograph so here is a reminder about how to take a great photo for engraving.  The photograph you choose is a reminder of a particular moment – it could be as special as this summer night memory captured here, the birth of your child or a special holiday or outing.

And while the path of any relationship is never smooth, with plenty of ups and down and even moments of forgiveness, Mother’s Day allows you to focus on the good times and celebrate the special bond of mother and child.

An engraved pendant is a personal gift which continues to last well beyond Mother’s Day and for many years to come.  Although in reality there really is no gift that you could give your mum that could ever equal the gift of life she gave to you.

I love this quote and thought I would share it with you – “A mother understands what a child does not say.”  And for this reason alone, Mother’s Day, as commercialised as it has become, deserves to be celebrated.
