It is Thanksgiving weekend and that always has me thinking of the value of family, friendship and just life in general. Thanksgiving a day to remember and give thanks and a day to appreciate what we have, including the materialistic side.Soon it will be the Christmas season and a time for giving and receiving if you are really lucky.
If today’s disposable culture is getting you down, why not consider investing in gifts for your loved ones that they will treasure for their whole lives? Check out my suggestions for the best keepsake gifts that will last a lifetime below.
Timepieces make some of the best keepsake gifts for two reasons. The first is that they are so practical, and the second is that they can be worn like jewelry to accessorize an outfit.
Of course, there are millions of clocks and watches out there from which to choose. However, the good news is that you can get some wonderful women’s watches online that are both stylish and unique. The same goes for watches for guys, too. Just be sure to consider the wearer’s fashion style and lifestyle before making your purchase if you want them to be a gift that truly lasts for a lifetime.
Personalized jewelry can make a great keepsake gift for just about anyone in your life. After all, it’s all about the piece you choose.
For the guys in your life, consider things like leather bracelets or necklaces. Although some personalized cufflinks also make a classic gift, they will want to keep forever.
There is even more choice when it comes to buying a keepsake gift for the ladies in your life. One of the most popular has to be a locket complete with engraving. However, you may also wish to consider some more modern options such as pendants for moms and grandmas that come with their kids’ or grandkids’ birthstones attached.
A writing implement
A pen may seem as if it’s a straightforward offering, but it can bring a lot of joy into the person’s life to which you give it. In fact, having a good quality pen to write in a journal with or to sign important documents can be a wonderful thing.
There are plenty of higher-end writing implements to choose from as well. For recipients with a flair for the dramatic, why not go for a quill and ink set? Alternatively, for those with a more traditional sense of taste, a fountain or biro pen made from wood and inlaid with personalization is a smart choice.
It’s not only things that can stay with us for a lifetime but also meaningful experiences as well. With that in mind, treating your loved one or friend to an experience day can make the most beautiful gift.
Of course, matching the recipient to the experience is the critical thing you need to get right here. Luckily, I have a few suggestions.
Race Car and rally days are perfect for petrolheads. While baking your own bread or making your own sausages, courses are ideas for the culinary enthusiast in your life.
Finally, for crafty people, a day or weekend course in sewing, woodwork, or ironwork can help them not only create memories that will last a lifetime, but they will leave with a fully completed project to act as a keepsake too.
If you want awesome impractical gifts I have options for that as well.
