Know someone who is getting married or having a baby? Of course you do!
If you’re like me, you are constantly looking for a gift for those big life events that is sweet and sentimental yet still remains classy and sophisticated enough to give to acquaintances as well as close friends and family. Of course, when you are talking sentimental keepsakes, you are most definitely talking personalized products, but the problem is that a lot of personalized products are too cutesy, too gaudy, or just plain too silly to give for anyone over the age of 10.
But now looking for that perfect personalized gift that combines sentimental and sophisticated is easier than ever because no one does sophisticated personalization quite like Sadie Ryan Keepsake Tiles. As the name suggests, they make personalized tiles for any “keepsake” occasion – births, weddings, anniversaries, etc. – but the really cool thing is how truly gorgeous they are.
What makes their work so stunning is the scroll-topped, natural looking tiles that your image is printed on. This adds a certain elegance to any announcement, picture, or invitation and makes even basic designs look like works of fine art. We got to see a sample Keepsake Wedding Tile for ourselves and were truly blown away by how beautiful the finished product is. Even though our design is handmade and rather simple, the resulting tile was nothing short of amazing.
When I heard I was going to review one of their personalized creations, I didn’t go the obvious route and choose to create a birth announcement tile for one of my children; I instead chose to get a picture tile that symbolizes the love that made us a family. There is one wedding picture in particular that just takes me right back to the day we were married and I knew right away that it was the perfect image for our tile. Something in the way we’re looking at each other is just so innocent, so pure, and it’s a great reminder of the love I have for the man I chose to spend my life with all those years ago.
I had originally thought our personalized wedding tile would look beautiful on our bedroom dresser, and it would be something that the kids would grow up looking at that would be a tiny glimpse into the day we became husband and wife. But, then the tile actually arrived, I unwrapped it, and immediately I realized that I couldn’t hide the wedding tile in my bedroom where only the four of us would ever get to enjoy it – it needed to be displayed in the most prominent of spots, right in our dining room/main area.
And, since the day it arrived I couldn’t be happier with how ours turned out and how perfect it looks in just about any room of our house. I have moved it around the house numerous times and each time it catches my eye I smile and think how perfect it is. The image no longer seems simple and the caption no longer is just the lyrics to our song, it’s a piece of art that tells the story of us, our family.
Designing your own Sadie Ryan Keepsake Tile couldn’t be any easier; you simply upload a photo, invitation, or announcement to their site and then choose your options (color or black & white and 2 different tile sizes) and then you just sit back and let them handle the rest. Whether you are looking for birth announcement tiles, wedding tiles, or simply a perfect canvas for your family picture, you can create your perfect tile directly on the Sadie Ryan website and have it shipped directly to you or your recipient.
Sadie Ryan Keepsake Tiles are sure to be the favorite gift for the newlywed, the new parents, or anyone celebrating a big life event. Not only are they a special piece of art that is heirloom quality and gorgeous, the best thing about them is that it gives you the perfect thing to do with all the ornate invites and announcements you collect, and a great way to display important events long after the original papers have disappeared.
