Things Remembered Review

This Mother's Day is going to be a special one for me as it will be my first! I'm very excited to be able to spend the day with Scarlett and my husband and create long-lasting memories. I certainly want to take a lot of pictures and document it!  Mother's Day only comes once a year, so whether this is your first or your fiftieth one, make sure you celebrate in a big way.


Things Remembered offers engraved and personalized gifts for Christmas, birthdays, weddings, and any other occasion.  The store offers a variety of items including jewelry boxes, picture frames and albums, kitchen and bath, drinkware, water globes, and so much more.  Any item can be personalized or engraved specifically to your needs in a font chosen by you in-store.

Delight Mom this Mother's Day by giving her a jewelry box with her initials on it, or a birthstone necklace featuring her grandchildren's birthstones. Don't forget about Grandma either! She'll love a specially engraved picture frame holding a photo of her grandchildren or great-grandchildren.  If you're going to a wedding in the near future, why not give the bride and groom engraved champagne flutes? The possibilities of gift giving are endless at Things Remembered.  Stop by today to pick out the perfect gift for that special person in your life.

Since it's my Mom's first Mother's Day as a Grandma, I knew I wanted to get her something special to commemorate the day.  When I was presented with the opportunity to review the Grandma Shadowbox Frame, I knew it was the absolute perfect pick.

Scarlett designed this frame to make Mother's Day extra special for her grandma this year! 

My mom absolutely loved this frame as soon as she saw it. I gave it to her as an early Mother's Day gift.  There are three separate sections to put in the pictures of your choice, but my mom hasn't figured out which pictures to put in yet.  She wants to pick the best ones, and of course put in one of her and Scarlett together.  I didn't have the option to put in my own photos when I received this review opportunity, or else I would have selected them for my mom.  That might be a positive thing in the end, since she can pick which ones she wants herself. 

The shadowbox frame is absolutely beautiful and would match anyone's home decor.  The frame itself is constructed well and quality made.  It will surely last for years to come.  I think the white outside of the frame paired with the silver interior looks wonderful together. The silver letters spelling out Grandma on the top are bold and shiny and you're drawn to them immediately.  What's really special are the Grandma quotes on the top and bottom of the frame.  It will surely make any Grandma smile! 

For an extra special touch, there's an area on the bottom that can be engraved with a quote or saying of your choice.  Since Scarlett is only 20 weeks old, she's still far too young to have anything special to say to Grandma, so I selected a quote for her! I had "I love Grandma, Love Scarlett" engraved in a beautiful font on the bottom.  This is a timeless quote and will hold true for years and years.  My mom really enjoyed that.  The engraving is bold and thick and very easy to read.  I've had some engraved items where it's a struggle to read what it says.

I was too excited to wait till it was actually May 10th to give my mom this gift.  I'm terrible with presents and want to give them to the recipient earlier than needed! I just can't wait to see their reaction. It was exciting to see her reaction and of course she was thrilled about the shadowbox frame.  She has it in her living room and will be putting in pictures in the coming days. It will make her smile to see pictures of her granddaughter every single day, and you can't put a price tag on making Grandma happy! 

It's not too late to make Mom feel special this Mother's Day.  Why not go ahead and order her a shadowbox frame or any other personalized gift from Things Remembered? It'll be one gift she'll remember forever.
