“MY NAME…MY PRIDE”

Friday, February 11th, 2011

As an infant, first word recognitions revolve around two words, “mama” and the name blessed to the infant himself. As we grow, the name becomes a part of us so strong that even if we were called out in deep sleep, we would jump out of the bed in response. The name gets carved into hearts and no matter what the language or meaning, we belong to the name as much as the name belongs to us.
These Alphabet cufflinks is a silent reminder of our name and becomes a pride for the owner, where he is stylishly reminded of his very own being.  Present these as Christmas gifts for the special men in your life and prove that as much as you adore your name and initial, he loves his just as much…or if not more!!

The Tree Of Love

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Those teen years are still fresh in my head.. filled with love, new joy, giddiness and excitement for the slightest of things. Carving ones love on trees, school walls, rocks at the park and even on the sand was a joy so complete and real. Today, as Life takes over matters in its own hand and Time whips us to keep on going, those days are forgotten.. and that laughing teenager is represented by a serious man with duty on his shoulders. When I spotted this Tree Of Love Sign, the boy in me was rekindled and the very image of me and my girl (now beloved wife) running in the meadow promising our love got captured. Valentine’s is coming up and straying away from the jewelery I’m going to give her something to remember our good old days..the days when love was a shy promise, carved on barks of tress….

8 Top Functional Valentine Wedding Favors

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Love is in the air.. so why not mark the calendar with a double celebration for the 14th of February?! Now, that everything from the bride’s dress, decor, buffet, etc is settled, time to select wedding favors for the guests. As tempting as it may be to give out heart shaped candies in a heart box with a red ribbons, you might want to hold the idea in respect to the single guests or even people who are not all that ‘valentine friendly’. So, here are our top 8 pick for valentine wedding favors that wont make your guests make squirming faces:

1. Wine Stopper: Wine and its accessories already give out a romantic feeling on its own. Pick out a silver heart wine stopper to add a more romantic feel to it.

2. A paper weight: Something as functional as this may be considered bland for a valentine wedding; but not if its in the shape of a heart and its a shiny silver one or even in crystal!

3. A key holder: These too come in many lovely heart shape with silver tags and polished to shine.

4. A plush bath robe: Yup! They would love it, personalize it with the bride and groom’s initials next to a thank you phrase.

5. A mouse pad: You need not get anything too mushy.. A simple, plain mouse pad in a vibrant red shade could be something refreshing to receive.

6.  A pad folio/Notebook: Include messages of love in each of the first pages and wish them a love filled year ahead.

7. Red stoles for the lady and red socks for the men: This is cute and usable.

8. Chocolates: Okay, alright its an option! Be careful to avoid the heart shaped ones in red glittered packages. Choose a brand of delicious Dark Chocolate (which is not only healthier but more romantic) and get it wrapped in black paper, simply add a small red ribbon.
