Why you should gift Origami Owl for Valentine’s Day.
Ok, I know some of you already have some ideas about this. What you should get for your person for Valentine’s Day; Chocolates and flowers, or flowers and earrings/ring/etc, or chocolates and a teddy bear. Maybe you even got that teddy bear a personalized shirt to make it special. That all sounds great, honest, but what did you get her last year? The same thing? I have a better idea. How do I know it’s a better idea? Because not only am I a wife, who used to be a girlfriend, but it’s my job to know.
So here goes… picture this:
Your significant wakes up in the morning, it’s a Wednesday- but not just any Wednesday, it’s Valentine’s Day. She rolls over and… you’re not there. Strange. Well anyway, she gets up, heads to the bathroom and begins her morning routine. It’s Wednesday- there’s no time for laying around lazily eating strawberries and drinking champagne in bed. Also, who does that? Also, there’s no strawberries OR champagne.
So, she finishes in the bathroom and heads out ready for the day to a table with coffee and *insert her favorite breakfast here… I don’t know her, what does she like? Eggs? Muffin? Granola and yogurt? Grapefruit? You pick.* So you’ve made her breakfast because it’s Valentine’s Day (but not in bed, because work) and she heads over to the table expecting the same thing as last year, gorgeous earrings and a teddy bear right next to her breakfast. Except there’s no teddy bear or jewelry box. There is a takeout box though. She thinks, what is this? rice? But then she sees on the side of the box “Origami Owl”. She’s intrigued, so she opens the box and finds a locket. It’s gorgeous with Swarovski Crystals lining the face and she loves it, but at first glance it’s just another piece of jewelry.
Then she sees it…. there are charms inside (By the way, where are you? Get in there, she’s opening your gift without you!) The charms seem to draw out your love story; a baseball bat because you met at a baseball game, a music note because your first date was to a concert, a palm tree because you proposed on the beach, and wedding dress for the day you got married. Behind the charms, she sees an engraved plate that has your initials, her initials and your anniversary.
I’m not saying this is the best gift you’ve ever given her, because clearly I don’t know you, but I will say it’s probably up there. The reason is simple, it’s YOUR STORY! It’s the two of you in a locket that she can wear whenever she wants to feel close to you! It shows that you thought about her gift and didn’t just hit up 1-800-FLOWERS before the order cutoff. It’s not that red heart full of chocolate, after she’s been on a diet for the past month and a half, or a teddy bear that will sit with her other teddy bears that you’ve gotten her. It is special, it is unique, and it is incredibly thoughtful because YOU had to design YOUR story!
Here’s the great part though… I can help you design it. You tell me your story and a little about the recipient and I will help you design it! You still get all the points for a super special gift, but you won’t have to pour over 50 pages of lockets and charms.
Here are some questions I get, and the answers of course…
What if my lady friend doesn’t wear necklaces?
This one is easy! How about a ring or watch? Maybe a bracelet? I got you covered!
Ok, but she really doesn’t like jewelry at all…
No problem! We have options. How about a photo frame with a locket? Does she have to wear a badge to work? We have a retractable badge locket! Seriously, there are options. Message me and we will find the perfect one!
We don’t have a very long story, so what would I even put in it?
This is even better, and again, there are options. My favorite one, is just get 1 or 2 charms to represent the start of your relationship, and leave her room to add more as you guys grow!
Do you have anything else to go with it?
Yes! So many things! Earrings to match the locket, or an extra chain for layering. We have bracelets with smell-good beads… and chocolate is an option, so it’s perfect for your dieting lady. Is she into aromatherapy? We have that too.
My budget isn’t very big.
We have options for every budget, and it’s all “build your own” so you can make it fit your budget no matter what it is!
