Valentine’s Day Memories

With Valentine’s Day only a few weeks away on Thursday 14 February you have a great opportunity to give a unique gift to that special person in your life.

You may have a favourite photograph from your relationship which captures a special moment that would make an ideal lasting memory. You could have that photograph engraved into one of our pendants to make it truly lasting.

Remember all those photos I asked you to take at Christmas time? Now is the time to look through them and pull out the one, really good photo of the two of you or of your family, and turn it into a stunning piece of jewellery. The results are amazing. The etchings are as clean and clear to see as your photo but they won’t fade over the years.

Instead of a photograph you may have a favourite poem or even some words from a song that capture the feelings you have for the recipient of the gift. As an example, these words can be etched on to one of our Heart Shaped Pendant made from 9ct Yellow Gold.

Valentine’s Day can also be a time to show your love and appreciation for another member of your family.  This may be a parent, grandparent or even one of your children.

What better way to show your affection for that person than with an item of jewellery from Etched In Memories?  It’s a lovely way to show how much you value the relationship and their friendship.

The Proposal

Valentine’s Day is approaching and not only is it the perfect time to affirm your love, it can be the perfect backdrop to the “marriage proposal”.

Flowers, champagne and getting down on one knee is the standard, safe option for popping the question, but it may or may not be the thing for YOUR beloved.

If you are planning on proposing, then start listening and taking notice of her likes and dislikes.  Sit and watch a couple of chick flicks with her – My Best Friend’s Wedding, Love Actually, 27 Dresses, to name a few.  How does she react to the proposals, bridesmaids dresses and the like?  Or what is she saying about her friends or work colleagues and their impending nuptials?  You’ll get a few answers in there.

If she is the sentimental romantic type, hiding the ring in her dessert, whilst clichéd is also incredibly romantic and unexpected.  Be original, however…the ring in the champagne glass has been overdone.

Find out what she likes; is she sporty and trains for hockey three times a week?  Does she rock climb or bushwalk?  Is she into scrapbooking or photography?  Or does she love to sit down quietly and read?  Is she likely to enjoy a picnic, or loath them due to creepy crawlies?

Women LOVE to feel special, and this also applies to the “how he proposed” stories when they’re with their girlfriends; they want something unique, and definitely romantic.

Climbing to her favourite rocky outcrop and proposing (on one knee, of course) amongst the clouds may be more her thing than frocking up and sitting down to an expensive meal, romantic though it may be.

Maybe she’d be blown away by your having crafted the proposal between the pages of her scrapbooking album?  Or written on a cake, with the ring safely inside?

Listen, observe and use your amazing imagination to create something unique and special; you will not only remember it, you will be inspired each and every time you do remember it.
