How to Relive Your Memories with the Perfect Memorabilia Gift?
When it comes to happy memories, practically anything can trigger them: a scent, a song, an image, an object, even a word spoken by a loved one. Yet, sometimes, we want to be reminded of a precious moment without waiting for it to just happen out of the blue. This is where memorabilia gifts come in, and that’s why everyone is so fond of them! Many options are possible, but there are a few classics that work every time.
As memorabilia gifts go, it doesn’t get more traditional than a lovely souvenir bought on an unforgettable trip. Every time you (or the person you gift it to!) see this very special object, you will be reminded of that wonderful vacation. And it doesn’t have to be a trinket or a cliché either! True, keychains, miniature monuments and magnets are simply everywhere, but a souvenir can really be anything at all. Locally crafted items, for instance, can be a superb option, as are unique foods and drinks that come in an interesting-looking jar or bottle.
Don’t underestimate the value of found objects. You could create a “memory jar” which could serve as a great memorabilia gift by picking up little bits and pieces along the way. A seashell, a handful of sand, tickets to a landmark or attraction you particularly appreciated. Arrange all these elements together in a jar or a box and let it be a blast from the past every time you open it!
And we mean this in the widest sense of the term! From postcards to family photos, landscapes and everything in between, pictures make for the absolute best memorabilia gifts. There are many options to choose from, each with its own characteristics. For instance, you could put together an amazing photo album featuring all your happiest moments with the person you intend on giving it to. Birthdays, holidays, and any other cheerful events qualify.
If you want your present to evoke one memory in particular, why not go for a single frame with a twist. Turning a simple photo into an incredible gift is what Pops does best! Select the best one and make it even better by having it printed in 3D. You could also choose a set of four and we’ll make an awesome 3D jigsaw puzzle out of them. That way, every time you play the game, you’ll remember these great times.
Event Memorabilia Gifts
Mementos, when they are event-specific, also make for wonderful presents. Picking up something special when going to an event is one of the best ways to remember that incredible day. Sports, concerts, reunions, weddings, graduations… If you happen to be the organizer of one such occasion, be sure to add memorabilia gifts to your to-do list. Tee-shirts, hats, mugs, key rings and picture frames are all great options, and they are so classic you can be certain everyone will love them. More unusual alternatives include potted plants, which not only create an amazing display, but keep growing and evolving, much like we do ourselves.
From crowd-pleasing memorabilia gifts to completely unique presents picked out for that one person, the possibilities are truly endless as almost anything can qualify. The only thing to keep in mind is that less specific gifts are best given on the actual day you want to be remembered. On the other hand, presents that are more representative of the event in question (including pictures of the occasion itself), may be given at a later date. And, if you are still unsure, don’t hesitate to ask! Your loved ones will do doubt tell you about their favorite kind of attention, and you can share your own preferences with them so they’ll know exactly what to get you!
