Sydney's Blog - May at The Drifting Bear Co.

Hello, Sydney here again!

May has been another busy month for everybody here at The Drifting Bear Co. with the start of wedding season upon us and Fathers Day just around the corner.  Whilst I'm pretty sure I'll always be a single pup, I have been pondering what I can buy my dad David for Father's Day.

There's certainly plenty of new personalised products for me to choose from as the Drifting Bear team have had their thinking caps on again and produced a great new range of personalised items.

 

First up is this Personalised Photo Print on Wood, a photo print with a difference!  These natural wood slices come from responsibly sourced Ash trees and make a unique canvas for your treasured photos.  Ideal as a personal and thoughtful gift for any wedding couple or dad, these wooden slices bring the wonder of the great outdoors in to your home.

The tree rings featured on each slice not only make each piece unique, but beautifully reflect the passing of time and would be a great way to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary.

Whilst the traditional gift to give for a fifth wedding dog anniversary is a chew toy, in the human world it's wood!  This makes these wooden slices a perfect anniversary gift for the humans in your life.

Next is our Personalised Wooden Wedding Keepsake which would make a great gift for couples looking to remember a special date and celebrate their love.  Simply provide two names and your special date and The Drifting Bear team will create you a beautiful gift.  

I'm already a bit of a wood fan, and am always partial to a stick or two, so can see that the natural and unique materials of this item would make a great addition to a rustic wedding day, as part of the styling for the day and then as a momento of the day for years later.

Your wooden slice can be displayed in so many ways making this a really versatile personalised gift.  I think I would keep mine in my toy box or next to my food bowl but they would look equally good attached directly to a wall or simply placed on a shelf.  You could even attach a hook and hang the wooden slice on ribbon or natural twine. Alternatively, order more than one and create a unique set of wooden images to compliment your home's style (as shown above). 

These beautiful personalised gifts are proving to be really popular so I better get my order in quick.  I don't even have to worry about getting my paws round the wrapping process as each wooden slice is wrapped neatly in tissue paper ready to be presented to the lucky recipient!

Now to get on to the serious business of picking which photo of me dad would like… there are so many to pick from.

I would run to you...

We all love a good love story and felt privileged when a customer chose to order one of our Personalised Coordinate Prints to commemorate a very unusual engagement. When we saw the text “ENGAGED, LONDON MARATHON 2014, MILE 17”, we couldn't help but get in touch to find out more - How exciting!

We get lots of orders for engagement and wedding gifts, but this proposal was a little different. The order was a gift for Laura and Craig who got engaged on Sunday 13th April 2014, during the London Marathon. To run the marathon in itself is a huge achievement, but imagine the adrenaline rushing around as Craig knew he was about to propose! 17 miles worth of anxiety… gosh.

We were able to use the exact coordinates where, down on one knee, Laura's answer to the all important question was of course “Yes!”.

We’re so happy we were able to create a print for such a momentous occasion and wish the couple a lifetime full of happiness.
