Announcements #044

The wedding season is now upon us, and a question that is frequently asked is: "What should I get as a present that will be cherished for years to come"?

Our theory is that the best items to give as presents are silver items, and here are a few reasons why:

1) Silver is a precious metal. The metal itself has an intrinsic value, and as such, it is held onto for far longer. Each time the recipient gazes on the silver tray that you bought for them, they will be flooded with loving memories of you.

2) The items can be engraved easily. This allows for customization and personalization of the gift, which will add to the item you are giving. A silver cup or goblet can be engraved with the name of the couple and the date of the wedding, and it will be cherished (and used) for years to come.

3) There is a lot to choose from. You can get items that range from travel candlesticks to a set of liquor cups or if you really want to splurge, why not get a candelabra?

Got any other ideas of why silver would make a great gift? Put it in the comments below.
