I love Things Remembered.  I remember many years ago, my mom bought me a key chain there.  A beautiful sterling silver and purple butterfly with some dangle hearts on it.  It was engraved, “I Love You, Love Mom.”  It has been on my keys ever since and every time I use my keys I think of my mom.

Things Remembered is my go-to place for those hard to buy for people because I can always find something spectacular and have it personalized to boot.  Personalization just makes a gift that much more special, don’t you think?  I have several items of my own from there, some bracelets, key chain and necklace to name a few.  I’m never disappointed.

With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the gift list. He wants a tech gift, she wants jewelry. Teens want something they can use on the go, while grandma is content with a gift to her favorite charity. With so many to buy for, all with different wants and needs, it’s no wonder the meaning behind gifts sometimes gets lost.

This holiday season, Things Remembered is reminding shoppers it doesn’t have to be that way. The leading personalized gift retailer has developed an array of engravable gifts for every personality, all with the ability to add a special message and create a holiday present that will be remembered long after the season comes to a close.

Things Remembered is offering one of my lucky readers their choice of one of the following personalized items!

  • Digital Photo Key Chain – In this digital age, the in-wallet photo sleeve has become obsolete. Now proud moms can show off the kids opening presents, their family vacation photos or any other favorites in 21st century style. The new digital photo key chain houses 100 photos that can be easily uploaded by plugging it into either a PC or a Mac with the included USB cord. The compact silver key chain is small enough to slip in a pocket or purse with a photo quality the recipient be impressed to show off. And the back can be engraved with a special message.
  • Engravable Playing Card Set Does he enjoy poker night with the guys? He’s going to love showing off these fun playing cards, which feature a reflective silver back. Two decks of cards come housed in an engravable silver carrying case to protect them while they’re not in play, just like the casino!
  • Butterfly Compact – The quintessential fashion accessory for girls of every age. She’ll look even more amazing when she pulls this stylish compact out of her purse. It features a whimsical butterfly design that shines with accented with crystals and comes in an elegant black tassel zippered pouch to protect from scratching. Inside are two mirrors—one with regular and one with double magnification. Engrave the compact with a personal message that speaks to the beauty you see within. Additional styles available.
  • Make-A-Wish Jewelry – Gifts that give back are twice as nice. This season, Things Remembered marks its 13-year sponsorship of the Make-A-Wish Foundation with a dozen exclusive personalized gifts that benefit the Foundation, including two new jewelry items. The Resilient Heart Necklace sparkles with the joy of the season and displays a crystal heart at the center of a textured pendant. Also available is the Radiant Star Bracelet that features a crystal-bordered star charm, multiple intertwined chains and toggle closure. Both can be engraved with a name, date or special wish, and $2 from each purchase is donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
