Back in the grand old days of nobility, every clan with any standing in society had a family shield they displayed proudly for all the world to see. These days, that might seem a little extra. But a family plaque is totally acceptable. In fact, it can even add some class and charm to an otherwise drab interior or exterior wall. Not that you’ve got any drabness in your life, wall-related or otherwise. We’re just saying, this is a really good looking plaque.
When you’ve been with someone for long enough, the days sure do start to blend together. Sometimes you need a stark visual reminder of just how much damn time you’ve spent with each other. It’s also a great way to prove that married couples start to look more alike when they get old.
Flowers are a lovely gift but for an anniversary, we’re not sure how they’d feel about something that will inevitably wilt and die. So, for fans of the floral, surprise them with this crystal rose which will be in bloom forever, much like their love for one another, even after all these years.
The refrigerator provides an ideal canvas for artistic, decorative, and sentimental displays of all kinds. Yet most people just have an old grocery list or a bunch of alphabet magnets strewn across its surface haphazardly. Wouldn’t it be nicer if they could look at the front of the refrigerator and see the smiling faces of their most beloved family members gazing back at them? Make it happen with a fridge collage magnet.
If you’re considering going with gift as common as flowers, you might consider stepping it up a few dozen notches by dipping them in 24k gold. Just gather up all your extra gold, melt it in your crucible, and toss in your plants. Or just buy this Eternity Rose instead. Actually, it’s probably electro-plated not really dipped in molten metal, but you get the point.
Nothing says “I love you” better than the ultimate aged bottle of liquor! Celebrate the enormous accomplishment of surviving decades together and toast to the years of bliss that lie ahead. Who needs another pearl necklace? A tie clip? Forget about it! Set this trophy atop the mantle and revel in success.
When did live music go out of style? Go ahead and raise the decibels a bit. This digital age of singular musical experiences is no cure for the weary minded. Give your parents tickets to an experience they’ll never forget. Get those toes tapping and hands clapping and let the rhythms set them free from the monotony!
When the dust bunnies have started to form into felt snowballs, the stovetop still has remnants of last year’s Bolognese sauce and that stubborn ring just won’t budge from the toilet bowl, it’s time to call in the big guns. Gift your parents with the citrus scents of clean and let the housekeeping professionals restore shine and hygiene to the Mom and Dad cave.
We all like to think we’re larger than life, but in truth we’re really just branches on the grand tree of our ancestry. Screw that, most of us are just leaves at best. Some of us are maybe just a little speck of caterpillar vomit on one of those leaves (you know who you are). Your family tree doesn’t have to be that detailed though.
