I have always thought having your stuff labeled with your name is so old-fashioned.
Blame it on my mom who had a mom who always embroidered her name on every hanky (and underwear, I swear!) she has. My grandma’s love for putting my mom’s name all over her stuff sort of spilled into my mom who took the labeling stuff to the next level by not just embroidering my name on my hankies, but labeling all my school stuff (from notebooks to lunch boxes to pencils) with my name.
(A Photo from Etsy. That’s my mom’s name, btw)
But, there is a good thing to labeling.
You see, when I was in kindergarten, I had a bully.
She was much more well-off than me, which makes me wonder to this day why she loves getting my stuff.
So, one day, I had enough. I told the teacher that this kid has been getting my stuff (and when you are in kindergarten, everything you own is special, even that embroidered hanky with some – err – snot on it).
Of course, my bully suddenly morphed into an angel and swore the hanky which she was holding was hers.
“But I have a name on it,” I said.
Teacher looked, and there, clear as a sunny day was my name lovingly embroidered by mom –
My hanky thief tried to wriggle out of her predicament by claiming “Marie” was her nickname and it was how she was called at home, but of course, since her name does not even have a letter M or anything on it, Teacher did not believe her one bit.
Fast forward to current days when school was about to start. I saw my son do a classic tween move – he rolled his eyes and made a face as I asked him to bring out all his school stuff and glared at my sharpies.
(I sort of muttered that he will be thankful for all my labeling efforts someday.)
Guess what, he was thankful after he came home from school. He left his pencil case in a classroom and the kids there returned it to him, because he has a name on it.
Then he asked me if there are other school stuff that I can write his name on.
Well, I found this site which makes beautiful personalized books and gifts, for all occasions, with different themes for boys and girls.
Just check out these personalized lunchboxes.
And this personalized placemat:
(I wish I have one of these…)
Having something labeled in your name, personalized, makes that something truly your own, and that’s what the creators of I See Me have in mind. Their products celebrate each one’s uniqueness, taking personalization to an entirely new level.
Just check out their personalized story books. One of my favorites since it happens to be the name of one of my most favorite little persons (my cousin’s grand-daughter)looks like this:
Who does not love looking at their photos when they were born? This Hello, World! book is the perfect gift to welcome a new baby. It is personalized with the baby’s name and the baby’s photo. It is something that the child would love to read over and over again, as the book commemorates the day she was born into this world.
I See Me personalized books has the child’s name on the cover and everywhere in the book. Having her name from cover to cover would make her feel pretty special, like the book was really made for her.
You would love a child’s face when she gets something with her name on it.
