every love story is beautiful..
but ours is my favourite ♥
I am often asked to create gifts that commemorate special moments in people’s lives, and that astonishes me order after order. You’d think I’d get used to it by now, eh? Haha. I was asked to create a gift basket from a husband to his wife for their 30th wedding anniversary! How amazing, right?! I was so excited to get started on this creation.
There are so many little custom touches to this gift.. this hubby really knew his wife! I worked alongside his great ideas to bring this gift basket to life.. and can we take a look at the basket? So adorbs! Found this gem at @homesensecanada.
Since his wife loves teas, I had him check out her tea stash and with the names of those.. I worked with the fine folks at @davidstea and concluded to three great organic teas: Green Seduction, Cinnamon Rooibos Chai & Garcinia Goodness.
And that mug tho!? Ahh, I fell in love with it when I saw it. I found this oversized tea cup that says “You are my cup of tea” at @chaptersindigo. The perfect combo to add to the organic teas. What better way to relax!
Speaking of relaxing… I also added a @fairmonthotels gift card to the @willowstreamspa for an amazing massage. How annoying would it be to use you gift card and still have to pay for taxes and gratuity? Very annoying. That’s why I ordered a custom gift card that included the cost of the massage (or a facial), taxes and gratuity! Win, win.

I fell in love with the mink twin blanket – it was sooo soft. I found it at Hudson’s Bay, and thought it was the perfect fit for the basket. I had it embroidered from a local shop in Victoria, J & J Embroidery and they did an excellent job! Great customer service, and definitely tried to bring my vision to life.
We added three photos to one frame (found at @michaelstores) that said: “First Trip, Greatest Trip, Latest Trip” to commemorate three beautiful milestones in their lives. So special. I also took their first photo together, and edited it to look like a sketch! It took me some time to get it right, but it was incredibly exciting to see the end result.
I loved putting each of these specific pieces, each with a special meaning, and bringing the basket to life! With a little yellow flower (that’s her favourite colour ;)) and a happy 30 years banner.. this gift was definitely one for the books!
I am so grateful to bring visions to life, and be a part of such memorable moments.
