Remembering the Holidays with Things Remembered

by Stacey


The holidays, for me, are a great time for family traditions, thinking back on fond holiday memories, and making a few new ones. One of my favorite ways to celebrate these memories are through personalized gifts. And one of my favorite places to shop for personalized gifts is at Things Remembered!

This holiday season Things Remembered has some amazing special holiday gifts in addition to their equally amazing line of personalized gifts. I love all of the engravable ornaments available at Things Remembered. They are a classic and special way to celebrate Baby’s First Christmas or your first Christmas as a married couple or family.

One of my favorite items available at Things Remembered right now is the Make-A-Wish® Water Globe. The water globe encases a beautiful silver heart with the message “Wishes from the Heart” and rests on an engravable silver box that plays When You Wish Upon a Star.

This beautiful musical globe is nestled into the arms of the most perfect companion — a teddy bear named Max!

Max the Bear

Max, handcrafted by the Things Remembered artisans, has soft movable arms and legs and comes dressed in his holiday best, a plaid holiday bow tie. His name is short for Maximilian, which means “greatest” and he truly is great. Here’s why…

When you purchase Max and his Make-A-Wish® Water Globe, $2 will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions. And it gets better — Things Remembered guarantees a minimum donation of $250,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation this year!

I absolutely love that, while Max and the Make-A-Wish® Water Globe is a perfect gift for that special someone in your life, you are also helping make wishes come true for children. I am so excited to give this adorable bear and beautiful globe to my girls’ babysitter this year. It is a perfect way to express our love and thanks to her this Christmas.

The Make-A-Wish® Water Globe is one of eight gifts available at Things Remembered that will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Any of them would make a very special gift this holiday season for someone you love!

Soon Max will be making his way into one of your homes (or someone you love) as we are giving away one Make-A-Wish® Water Globe with Max Teddy Bear. One lucky reader will be receiving this beautiful gift with custom engraving from Things Remembered!!!
