The spring wedding season is just around the corner. Will your wedding gifts be memorable?
Selecting a wedding gift for a newly married couple has been tradition for hundreds of years. In some cultures it’s for luck and prosperity; in others it’s a family keepsake that is passed down through the generations. No matter what gift you select it becomes a physical reflection of your support and love for the bride and groom and your wish that they begin their new life with each other on a positive note.
Deciding on a gift idea ought to be a pleasant task. But, depending on how well you know the couple, it can sometimes be daunting as well. Will they like it? Will three other people give the same gift? Do you know the quality of the gift? Choosing a wedding token which will be both appreciated and unique to the husband and wife is a key element to buying the ‘perfect’ gift. But, weddings aren’t the only occasion that call for a unique gifting. Whether you are shopping for a new couple who loves to cook or congratulating a coworker on a new promotion – you can’t go wrong with a personalized keepsake. Luckily, finding one is even easier with Memorable Gifts.

Memorable Gifts asked me to review one of their personalized items so that I could share it with you. I’m definitely the type of person who lives in my office so I selected the Deluxe Desktop Organizer Caddy. Made from premium rosewood, the Desktop Caddy is perfect for office, kitchen, bedroom and more. I always forget where I left my cellphone, but now I have a perfect spot for it where it’s always handy. I could just as easily use it for my reading glasses (no old jokes, please!) or tv remote.
The engraving on the front plate came out perfectly. The care they take with the process is obvious and the caddy was packed securely so that I received my caddy scratch and bump free. So, you don’t have to worry about what condition your gift will be in if you need to ship it directly to someone.
The two things I especially like about this caddy is the beautiful rosewood and the spinning base. The wood is a beautiful dark red-brown color with a soft satin finish and the swivel base allows me to turn it so that I can see my cellphone screen without picking up the phone. The two side slots also provide a great space for my vast assortment of note cards and recycled envelopes. Don’t forget the bottom drawer; I finally have a spot for my paperclips. You could also use it for spare change, thumbtacks, to hold your flash drive and more.
This has definitely become my favorite office accessory. My husband calls it my ‘CEO Trinket’….I have to admit, I like that idea.
