Things Remembered Makes Christmas Personal!

So, how are you doing with that Christmas shopping? Have you started? Or are you one of those people that put me to shame and have already finished your shopping? I’m somewhere in the middle. I’ve gotten the “easy” gifts on the list and am now sitting here, staring at the names on the list that aren’t quite so easy! Ahem…my parents!

They are the type of people on your holiday shopping list that don’t really need anything and they don’t give you a “wish list” either! I can’t just not get them a gift, so this Christmas I will be doing some shopping at one of my favorite personalized shops — Things Remembered! They are a one-stop-shop for amazing gifts for anybody on your list, including the “hard to shop” fors!

This year I want to share with you some of those unique gifts that Things Remembered has to offer!

The Digital Photo Key Chain — This is the frontrunner for gift ideas for my parents! They love photography and are always wanting to show off pictures of their grandkids (sound like some grandparents you know?). The Digital Photo Key Chain is a perfect gift because it is elegant, sleek, and so simple to use! It can hold up to 100 photos (easily uploaded using the included USB cord and your PC or Mac), but is still small enough to slip inside your pocket or purse!

One side of the keychain has a 1.8″ x 1.9″ high quality screen for viewing your photos, while the other side leaves you space to include an engravable personalized message! Again, a great gift for grandparents, your husband, or maybe that new mom in your life! Who doesn’t love showing off pictures of those cute little kiddos in their life?

Things Remembered Playing Cards SetEngravable Playing Card Set — Wouldn’t it be fun to send your husband off to poker night in style? Or at least send his cards off in style? The Engravable Playing Cards feature a reflective silver back and the two decks are housed in an engravable silver carrying case with a nice weave texture on the lid. He may not always be the big winner at the card table but at least he’ll look like one carrying these cards!

Things Remembered Butterfly CompactButterfly Compact — Teenage girl on your list? Yup, me too! My niece is going to love this gorgeous Butterfly Compact. Its polished silver exterior is decorated with a whimsical butterfly design, accented with crystals and complete with a beautiful engraved message. Inside she’ll find two mirrors – one regular and one with 2x magnification.

Make-A-Wish Jewelry — Another amazing gift for the ladies! Actually we have two gifts here: the Resilient Heart Necklace and the Radiant Star Bracelet!

Things Remembered Make-A-Wish 2010

The Resilient Heart Necklace will add some holiday sparkle to your neck with a beautiful crystal heart at the center of a textured pendant.

The crystal-bordered star charm hangs from multiple intertwined chains, making it look delicate and beautiful! Each piece can be engraved and $2 from each purchase is donated to the Foundation!!! A gift that keeps giving!!!

    Things Remembered has some great family has shopped there for years!
    I think the Make A Wish bracelet is it!

  2. carlyn says

    I, Personally, would love the bracelet! However, my niece would adore the mirror & the keychain would be a great gift for my dad. He doesn’t live close by, so being able to load hime up with a ton of photos of his grandaughter for him to always have with him. I’d be happy with any of them as they would all make amazing gifts!

  5. sarah pacilio says

    My sister just got married Oct 16 this would be a great keychain to give her so she can show off the great photos

  6. says

    I am soooooooooo excited about this. The Keychain would be perfect for my MIL for Christmas. She has 5 kids and 16 grandkids. We have looked a lot of places for shirts, mugs, jewelry etc….but can never find anything that can hold that many names. A key chain with pictures of her large family would be perfect!

    This year, as always, the hardest people to buy for (and the people I end up shopping last for), are the adult men on my list. The engravable card set, however, would be totally perfect for my poker-playing S.O. Thanks for the chance to win!

    It is tough to choose. I guess the necklace/bracelet. My mom has volunteered a lot of time with Make-a-wish. My daughter’s boyfriend received a wish from Make-a-wish, so that organization is dear to me.
