Gifting just because…

Gifting just because…

I was recently contacted by a wonderful lady named Emma (the best people are called that aren’t they) who is the founder of the brand Gemz by Emz. She makes beautifully personalised gift products for all. They have personalised photo engraved jewellery, photo wall canvases and photo cushions! I was kindly gifted one of their beautiful engraved necklaces and I got to thinking what should I put on it? Should I keep it, or gift it to someone else.

This is when I thought about my family, my friends. How much I have drifted from people. It’s amazing isn’t it, how easy it is to drift away from loved ones and not even realise? How we all go about our lives and months can pass before you speak or reconnect. I wanted to gift something to my darling sister, that would help her remember her niece and nephew wherever she goes, whether we are near or far and something sentimental for her to keep. It’s not even her birthday, it’s a just because we love you kind of gift. Does anyone else do that? Just think, you know what, you deserve something nice, so happy auntie becka day I guess!!

I decided to go of the necklace because she is a sentimental person and wears necklaces often. It can be engraved with a saying, phrase and even a photo. You heard me.. PHOTO! How on earth does that work?! They are 27mm stainless steel pendants on sterling silver chains. I went for one of very few photos I have of her with my two children together (that’s fairly recent). I was super surprised at how well it turned out. The phrase I went with was ‘Only the best sister’s get promoted to auntie’, so It’s a gift from both me and the children!

It turned out beautifully, it is a heart shaped pendant with the gorgeous engraved photo on the front, it is clear, fits perfectly and can be easily seen. I always worry photo gifts will turn out looking a little odd. Considering the small necklace size and the detail of the photo, I was amazed at the genuine quality of the picture produced! The chain is also a really good length too! The engraving on the back is done in a lovely smart subtle print and again fits wonderfully on the heart shape! I couldn’t be happier with it.

My daughter was “looking” after Rebecca’s gift so it didn’t get lost and oh my days, she was obsessed with it! I think I need to get her one. She would not stop looking at it and talking about it in amazement, saying look it’s me, and Tyler and Becka… wow! She was fixated!

I would certainly recommend you check out Gemz by Emz if you are on the lookout for a beautiful gift for a birthday, Christmas or for a just because we love you gift! I guess the moral of this blog post is A. Check out Gemz by Emz, but also B… Don’t forget to tell those closest to you how much you really care about them. It doesn’t need to be a special occasion to show how much someone makes a difference in your life.

Much Love
