Back in the beginning of December I had a really sweet customer named Megan buy two of my animals, an owl and a rabbit. She also bought the additional feature of an embroidered name for each of them. Once she received them she told me what her plans were for them.
She said, “I can’t wait to give them to my mommy-to-be sister. I wrote a little story about the owl and the bunny and framed it for her. The owl is me and the bunny is my soon-to-be niece or nephew. They live 800 miles away and I hope these little guys will be a constant reminder that someone in Texas loves them!”
I thought this was the most clever idea! Not only was she purchasing one of a kind animals for her new niece or nephew but she personalized them with a story she wrote to go along with them. Now when the little baby sees the toys and hears the story he/she can think about his/her aunt. This will be a gift that will be cherished forever.
This idea can be recreated in so many ways and for so many different occasions. I happen to be partial to the little animals that I make, so if you ever want to try this for yourself come on over to The Nesting Spot!
